This website upgrade has been a long time coming - months in fact. It's a much sexier, sophisticated, modern, smarter and a whole lot more useful version of it's predecessor. Today I want to say goodbye to the old website, you served me good, but it's time to embrace a more grown up version of my online self. It feels like I've been living in a little tiny hut and now I've upgraded to a luxury mansion with views of the Sydney Harbour Bridge - that's how much better this website really is!
So let me tell you briefly about some of the upgrades that I'm most excited about.
First of all, I have MY OWN shop right here in my "cyber home", no need to click through an Etsy shop or third party website to get to my designs. I have everything right here under the one roof. Yes! I finally have a "home" for my work! I never drink, but I think I'll drink to this! Might even get tipsy about this, that's how exciting this is!
Having said that, I will still continue to have all my licensed range of cards on Greenvelope, Pingg, Fine Stationery and all my other ventures, this will stay the same, but all the other work that I produce on my own will be right here.
The other thing I'm really excited about is my newsletter subscription box. I never thought a pretty little box could make me so happy! Did you see it? It's on the bottom right side of website. You can subscribe to my mailing list right here on my home page and I even have a pop-up asking people to sign up to my newsletter or follow me on social media to receive a 20% discount in my shop. Cool huh? The sale is on until the end of the month :)
There's also a new blog - what you are reading now, that sits right here on my website, no more clicking to go to third party website, it sits right here. So exciting!
I now also have a fancy pantsy private design gallery where art directors can view my designs for licensing and outright purchase. If you happen to be an art director, you can request access to my online gallery by sending me an email and I'll give you access to the private section of my website. You can flick through the design pages or you can search under categories of work and make a purchase when you've made your decision.
I'm still adding products and doing finishing touches to the website and I'll continue to work on these for the next few days. I have all kinds of wonderful things planned for my website, this is just the beginning, and I'm so glad that I'm finally doing it!
Until next time, Claudia.
