Bozeman Website Design Studio


eCommerce Platform Change
+ Branded Photography

Lee Hemp initially reached out having issues with their WooCommerce WordPress site. The site was hard to update and they continually ran into technical issues. We suggested a switch to the intuitive and user-friendly Shopify platform. The change ensured that the Shopify site matched the original WordPress layout, with an update to the brand colors as we went. This project also morphed into the creation of some beautiful product and brand photography for Lee Hemp that they will be able to use on the website and across social.


The main problem for Lee Hemp was the difficulty of the WooCommerce / WordPress platform. It was causing issues with plugins needing to be updated, general difficulties adding and editing products on the site, and extremely slow load times. Typically, Shopify is a much more user-friendly solution for clients and sites can be moved to that platform easily. As we moved through the process, we also had the opportunity to create a more consistent look for the product and branded imagery with a lifestyle photoshoot of Lee Hemp’s products.
