Urban Cottage Industries

The Overview


We built Urban Cottage Industries first Magento store over 2 years ago and the company has grown in that time requiring additional functionality to meet their business requirements.

The website has a number of key customisations including:

Customise your own Moleskine, allowing the user to customise their Moleskine and view the finished product using ‘Ems’ rather than a standard character account. The customisation allows the admin user to determine font placement, size, colour and CSS effect, providing full control with no coding skills required.

Another bespoke customisation included the Made for You product which enables the user to create their own product and view their product as they build it, with a huge amount of possibilities. This has become one of the main features of their website, you can create your own pendant here - Pendant Lights | Made for You.

The business has a mix of B2C and B2B clients and therefore both the front facing site and admin panel had to suit these requirements and integrate efficiently with with 3rd party cloud applications.
