Somerset Cheese Company eCommerce WordPress website

We designed and built an eCommerce WordPress website for the Somerset Cheese Company


An eCommerce website redesign for the Somerset Cheese Company

The Somerset Cheese Company specialise in making award winning, delicious handmade cheeses.

Their old website wasn’t reflecting that quality and the eCommerce section was hardly functional.

The Somerset Cheese Company wanted a bold, strong and confident eCommerce website redesign with easy browsing of their product range, in addition to working seamlessly on any device. They also wanted to have a blog that they could update themselves with news stories and notices of which markets they attend.

We built them a customised WordPress website with WooCommerce providing the eCommerce functionality.

WordPress plus WooCommerce

We used a combination of WordPress and WooCommerce to create a great online shopping experience.

Our Process

Looking at the analytic data from the old site helped us to highlight the areas which needed improving. These included increasing the default text size and putting more emphasis on the individual products. ​

Once we had established a typeface and colour pallet, we created an initial design visual of the website home page. We wanted to get the client involved in the design process as soon as possible so they can provide feedback.

We created wireframes for the layout of the pages and a couple more Photoshop visuals to further establish a style guide for the website.

We redesigned the Cheese Company eCommerce website checkout user experience from the ground up to ensure a smooth user experience.

Somerset Cheese Company Product Page

The finished website uses beautiful photos of their cheese to highlight the quality along with a colour palette that provides a subtly rustic yet playful backdrop. The site is responsive and looks great when viewed on a mobile, tablet or desktop computer.

After launching

We trained Anita from Somerset Cheese in blogging, as well as using social networks like Facebook and Twitter to further promote their work.
