Ocular Box designed the original Universal Yarn website in winter 2005 to fill an immediate need for an online presence before an upcoming trade show the company was attending. From those simple beginnings, over time, we crafted a fully customized content management system for administrating yarns, colors, patterns and brands.
In late 2008, Ocular Box was asked to redesign the Universal Yarn site. Through the last quarter of 2008 we combined the extensive industry knowledge of the Universal Yarn staff with our heightened awareness of how yarn data relates.
Version 2.0 of Universal Yarn included:
Full Shopatron retailer order fulfillment integration
Fully dynamic content administrated through a fully-customized content management system
Custom data relationships for brands, yarns, colors, fibers, needles, hooks, patterns, books, etc.
Date tracking for new yarns, colors and patterns
Universal Yarn blog
Google maps store locator integration
Captcha-enabled newsletter and special offers signup

Our website was created quickly, and exactly to our liking. With the assistance of Ocular Box, we defined the technical requirements, and all our expectations for the timeline of creation and functionality at the time of completion were exceeded.
The design was completely created by Ocular Box, they are experts with color and design. They made our energy drink review site come to life.
