French and English Rebrand
with Online Shop

Maison Christian Faure Website Rebrand and Online Shop Integration

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 and had 2 very successful brick-and-mortar locations in Montreal along with a world-renowned Pastry School, but they needed a harder working website that would generate revenue. Unfortunately, 2020 forced them to downsize quite a bit. They are still open, and there are still some elements that remain from our rebrand, but the site is not as it was prior to then.

The Requirements

  • Uplevel their online presence
  • Stay on-brand with the 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
  • 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

Maison’s thoughts 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!

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…it was a nice surprise for all! After their first year, they had a highly successful Holiday season with some massive sales.

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!

Awards & Accolades

WSD was awarded a GDUSA Award for the Design and Development of the Maison Christian Faure Website as well as a Davey Award for Best Visual Appeal.
