About the Client
Here & Now is a cozy, unpretentious studio that offers courses in yoga and mindfulness, as well as workshops and special events that help bring participants into the "here and now", such as cooking classes, family board game afternoons and retreats.
As Here & Now was preparing for the busy fall season, Heather (the owner) was looking for a modern & bright face-lift. Not only did she want new styling and direction for her WIX website, she also disliked the manual registration and payment setup she had to deal with.
The Solutions Provided
We provided the following solutions:
- Architecture: create wireframes that would re-organize each page of Heather's website
- Style Guide: apply new styling directly to the WIX website to change the colours and fonts
- Payment Registration: provide a list of pros & cons for possible registration and payment system integration options
- Enable the setup of the systems chosen
- Coaching: coach Heather on how to make updates herself
Before & After
U7 delivered the wireframes, design application, system implementation and coaching on budget and time. Heather received the base of direction, design orientation, and tools she needed to move forward with further implementation and changes. Now, her website looks peaceful and spacious, as a yoga website should. Plus, Heather is saving herself time and many headaches by having an automated payment system.
- U7 worked with me toward setting up a basic Wix site for my yoga/mindfulness studio. I needed an easy way for students to register and pay for courses and workshops online. I am not a tech-savvy person so it was wonderful to pass on the responsibility researching different options to someone who could actually understand them and then advise me on which one would best meet my needs. U7 helped me cut down the number of pages I had on my site drastically, making it more user-friendly, and the template they chose gave the site a fresh, modern look. Most importantly, website is easy for me to maintain and update on my own.
