Catherine Duso approached us with the desire
to develop a distinctive web presence for her Toronto-based
hand made jewelry company, Citrine Creations. She knew
what information she wanted to provide her customers, but
left all design and functional considerations up to us.
Based on the information she gave us, we developed several
unique designs for her to consider. After she selected
a design, we used that as
the starting point for development of the actual site.
The final design uses the beauty of the
jewelry itself as the main focal point for the visitor.
Product pages are laid out to give maximum emphasis to
the design of each piece, with little distraction from
the surrounding elements. Navigation is clear and simple,
and all colours are coordinated with the jewelry. Click

"It was a pleasure working
with Kenneth Young Design. I came to them with the
basic outline of what I was looking for and they helped
shape those ideas into a great website. They knew the
difference between what could be done and what should
be done, clearly explaining the options available and
which options would be best given my goals and budget.
They were extremely knowledgeable and helpful—they
even helped us with photography issues. I look forward
to working with them again!"

We recently added
e-commerce functionality to the website through the use
of a PayPal shopping cart system. This system is ideal
for small to medium-sized businesses as it allows rapid
development of a cost-effective, secure online sales system
for a limited product inventory.
We also designed a sales
brochure for in-store distribution. This sheet was
designed with a simple, elegant external appearance, contrasted
with the very colourful, high-impact internal appearance.
This had the effect of drawing the reader into opening
the brochure, then engaging them with attractively arranged
and interesting pieces of jewelry.
