Copps Island Oysters

A new e-commerce website for the legendary Norwalk CT oystermen 

Copps Island Oysters, based in Norwalk CT, is a family of oystermen since the 1940s and operates one of the last standing traditional oyster farms in the United States. Designsite was engaged to design and build a new responsive website that accurately reflected the company and its history. We recommended Squarespace as the content management platform, enabling us to build a beautiful website with a full e-commerce capabilities that provide an optimum user experience across computers and all mobile devices. Customized coding, including homepage video integration and e-commerce functionality delivered a more unique visitor experience.

We also provided additional coding expertise that extended beyond Squarespace's built-in tools, for specific client requests. In addition, we set up a MailChimp account that sends newsletter subscriptions seamlessly from Squarespace so a customer database can be built and used for subsequent e-mail promotions. Finally, we prepared a complete instructions guide so the client could continue to make website updates and maintain the website in-house.
