Award-winning website design
Bookcase.Club is a monthly book subscription where subscribers choose their favorite genre of books and then receive two books to their doorstep every month. BookCase caters to a variety of genres and even has a variety of children’s subscriptions.
They came to us in need of an updated website. While 84% of their customers were millennial women, their current website conveyed a more masculine energy that didn’t cater to their main customer base. They needed new colors, fun fonts, and more conversational messaging. We created a fresh, custom Shopify website that integrated seamlessly with an advanced subscription fulfillment platform that enabled the Bookcase.Club team to manage their subscriptions with ease.

Award-Winning Website Redesign
A new website for BookCase was a necessity. The company sought a website with an advanced order fulfillment system for its book subscription service that appealed to its largest customer-base — millennial women. Our solution was to create a custom Shopify site that offered a customer-focused design with a beautiful, user-friendly interface.
With our target shopper in mind, we created a gorgeous Shopify theme that featured a palette of soft blue and coral and handwritten font. We also filmed a header video for the home page that features a young woman opening her BookCase (it also features an adorable dog).
The customer-focused design and user-friendly interface won a silver ADDY award from AAF Knoxville for the website design!
The Data-Driven Form
Our second silver Addy for the Bookcase.Club website is in the category of data-driven marketing. Because Bookcase.Club offers several different genres for a variety of age groups, we created a form that easily matches prospective customers to the exact subscription box they are looking for.
Customers can choose their gender, desired genre, and whether they are shopping for themselves or someone else (Bookcase.Club offers giftable subscriptions that make great surprises for your loved ones!), and the form will dynamically match a customer with their perfect box.
This element of the site won another silver ADDY award in the data-driven marketing category.
The new website design achieved one of our goals: beautiful aesthetics and design. Did it achieve the real goal of driving results for the client? Just looking at the three months following the launch of the new site, we would say it has delivered.
- Total sessions on the site increased by 11.57%.
