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
Ocular Box Studios released the newest version of Universal Yarn in January 2009.
Well, what more can I say? BRAVO! I am so pleased that your firm was recommended to me for the creation of the Lauer Design web site. You have demonstrated distinctive creativity...one that does not mind stretching the limits...for a very reasonable fee. Being in the design field myself, it is nice to know that you understood what I was looking for and made suggestions to improve upon it.
I will certainly use your firm again as well as recommend you to anyone who is in need of your services.
