Website Case Studies: Earth Studio
E-Commerce Web Site Design & Content Management
Meet Earth Studio, Manufacturers of Very Cool Metal Art
Earth Studio in Moab, Utah creates metal art for home and garden. Their unique designs typify the outdoor spirit of the beautiful landscape of the area. They also sell handcrafted artworks made by local artists as well as recycled art, and metal art inspired by adventure sports in Moab.
Earth Studio approached us to provide them an easy-to-navigate e-commerce web site design that highlighted their primary products; metal garden home art. They wanted to offer Moab tourists who visited their store a place to shop online that would offer the same feel they got in the store as well as a good cross section of their most popular products.
We created the first version of Earth Studio Moab web site in 2004 with a custom design that offered access to their online catalog with images and links right on the home page.
