Client Info

Lonestar Artisans is a group of passionate wood crafters in Texas. They have been admirers of craftsmanship themselves and believe in crafting well made wooden objects. Over generations, they have turned the beauty of wood into useful objects built to last. Sharing their work and spreading the word, John, the founder, was hoping to build a better platform for artisans within Texas. Adster contributed to this plan by creating an online portal that could unite and foster the growth of various skilled craftsmen. Furthermore, the portal was also required to showcase the products crafted by these wood craftsmen and reach out to the targeted audience.
  • Region : Texas, USA
  • Industry : Art, Retail

The Challenges

  • To reach out to the patrons who would admire the craft and appreciate the exquisite workmanship.
  • To inspire clients to be creative and help design their own made to order pieces of wooden furniture and to connect these clients to the respective Lonestar artisans.
  • To promote the dwindling tradition of American craftsmanship and to provide a platform for the craftsmen to unite.

The Solutions

  • We created a custom website from scratch and carefully crafted it giving attention to every detail that reflects Lonestar’s unique style.
  • We provided a gallery to showcase each artisan’s work, which testifies to their quality work.
  • We integrated a blog to unite the artists who can now share their experiences, stories and even trade secrets.
  • We included a service for the patrons to buy an artisan’s crafted furniture or to order custom design furniture.
  • Developed a robust code to handle the payments, inventory, and shipping, while artisans create high quality custom furniture.

Results

  • Lonestar has successfully executed and shipped many custom furniture orders since the website was made live.
  • Like minded craftsmen have joined Lonestar and the catalogue is forever expanding with new inventory added to the website every day.
  • The workmanship quality has drawn applauds and the Texan woodwork craftsmen tradition has found a better audience.

What our Client say…!

I was in two minds about hiring web developers to develop my website since I'm not really the IT savvy types. Besides I had a really complex project requirement. Of the 18 firms who submitted their bids I ultimately chose ’ADSTER’. They did an awesome job developing my website with great positive and enthusiasm. The team was very responsive and available all the time to answer my questions promptly. They anticipated most of the potential challenges and quickly came up with innovative solutions. I believe they have demonstrated a lot of integrity the way they have handled this project. I am extremely satisfied with the team Adster and would certainly hire them again for my next project. Well done, ‘Adster’!
