Maison came to Weller Smith Design in the Fall of 2016 looking for help with their online presence. They already had a solid brand in place, two successful brick-and-mortar locations in Montreal along with a world-renowned Pastry School, but they were in need of a harder working website that would generate revenue.
Uplevel their online presence
Stay on-brand with new styling
Accessible in both French and English
Perform well and easy to use interface
Simple but beautiful display to show their robust offerings from their 2 locations (now 3)
Pastry School class schedules and sign-ups
Allow for local pick-up, or shipping within Canada
Secure checkout across any/all products
Flexible and easy to update by the staff
Launch Day Surprise:
Not even 5 minutes after we opened up the new site to the public, Maison had their first purchase! This was not a pre-planned test order either…so it was a nice surprise for all!
What we loved about working with the team at Maison:
This was such a great experience for us here at WSD. While there were a LOT of technical details that had to be wrangled throughout this project, both teams worked seamlessly together to get everything in order, tested, and launched on schedule before the Holiday rush!
As an update on this project, the site has been live for a year and had a highly successful 2017 Holiday season with some massive sales. What a great way to start the New Year.

From Maison on working with WSD:
LeAnna and her team are so creative, innovative, and very professional to work with. This project was huge and her team was invested to see our project succeed. We are so happy with our new professional looking website and online store. This has been a learning curve for us and WSD has been very patient and knowledgeable in offering solutions to all our questions. We asked for a lot and they delivered!
