Canopi - Armed with confidence

Canopi – Armed with confidence

I recently produced a website for a new Irish product that has been doing very well in-stores and on-line.

Canopi is a new product from Irish entrepreneur Sandra Walsh.

Canopi is a seamless way of adding arm cover to a sleeveless garment, instantly transforming the look of your outfit. It acts as covers for the arms; it is produced as a one piece which clips on to the bra straps for added security.

The site includes an e-commerce shop that processes electronic payments, orders with size and colour variations, shipping options and international delivery.

New website for Heather Finn Knitwear


Screen Shot 2013-05-22 at 17.47.06Artist-makers Online have just completed a website re-design for Heather Finn Knitwear. This early spring clean to Heather’s site fuses some of her existing branding elements and put them together with a new photoshoot, a wordpress theme customisation and a sleeker online shop. Some of the custom illustration and logo design was used in her work for years, but it has been dusted off, given a make-over and re-used. The result is a new site with a new feel, that employs her familiar branding in a new way, and acts as an effective hub for her overall online presence.
