The Teapot Club is a wonderful littleÂ jewellery company started by my good friends Sidonie and Amy. The have been working hard to create some beautifulÂ pieces, allÂ fashionedÂ from flea market findings and given a charming tea party twist. I wasÂ delightedÂ to be involved and relished toÂ opportunityÂ to really have a play with the design and to help get things launched.
I designed the site starting with all the handÂ drawnÂ components and typeface, producing the words in Photoshop then graduating through to the HTML and CSS along with a rather heavy but fun use of images. The site runs on the light weight Chyrp CMS by Alex Suraci and was really fun to play around with, Aron even kindly wrote a Product module for it. The .twig language made for easyÂ modifyingÂ and as whole I wouldÂ happilyÂ recommendÂ it. Sadly Chyrp’s development stared to slow and what was a vastlyÂ underratedÂ CMS platform ceasedÂ development some time in June. A real shame indeed.
But anyway, go check out THE TEAPOT CLUB, they have some very nice stuff for sale andÂ beautifulÂ photography to boot.
