Luke is a great guy and put together some great designs for us. He pays close attention to detail and works closely with the client to ensure all of the project goals are reached. We would definitely work with him again!
How columbian started their web page design journey
Columbian Home Products has manufactured porcelain on steel cookware for over 100 years. We have acquired additional cookware companies along the way that make ethnic cookware and cutting boards.
You might know our main product line as the turkey roasters and stock pots, which are blue with specks of white. Our products are cost effective and durable. We are also known for the Joyce Chen brand of scissors and Asian cookware. Also, our cutting boards are sold in all of the major retailers.
Our Columbian brand, which is the theme of the contest, should evoke a simpler time when your grandparents were young, and they cooked holiday meals for the family. The artwork that we are providing, specifically, the colored line art, is the theme that we use on our labels.
Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
Our current web site is strictly for our sales reps, but now we want to expand our catalogs to the general public. We are NOT creating an online sales shop, but we do want to direct the end user, who is searching for our categories of products, to our site, then to our customers on-line retail stores. In essence we are creating an On-line catalog.
We want the site to be visually appealing, clean, and to convey the history and classic nature of our products.
