Client Success Story - Blanton's Blossoms

About Blanton’s Blossoms

Decades after launching one of Chicago’s premier plumbing companies, Stacey and Jack Blanton decided to start a new chapter in their lives by launching Blanton’s Blossoms. Based in Woodstock, Illinois, their new flower farm offers a wide variety of floral products, as well as farm experiences including photography sessions, U-pick outings, workshops, and more. 

The Project

Geek Chicago’s connection with the Blanton family runs deep, and we were honored when Stacey and Jack entrusted us with the development of their new website, leveraging a gorgeous style guide and design template by our longtime friends at Angela Carpenter Creative and stunning photos from our frequent collaborator Nathanael Filbert Photography.

In addition to showcasing Jack and Stacey’s amazing floral designs and lovely brand story with social media integration and accessible blogging functionality, the Blanton’s Blossoms website was built to be fully mobile-friendly and comprehensively SEO-ready. 

And when Stacey is ready to begin unveiling online shopping to her eager clients, the site is ready for eCommerce integration, to ensure that registering for events and purchasing products will be a seamless and easy experience from beginning to end.

Success

Here’s what Stacey had to say about her experience launching the new Blanton’s Blossoms site:

“We've worked with Jason and his team for nearly 10 years,  and now that we've made a career change, we wanted someone familiar and professional with the ability to guide us. Geek’s designers were so patient and kind to work with. They even collaborated with our brand designer for our online esthetic! We're so happy with the look of our new website and confident that it can handle today's consumer needs.”
