Custom built web store for Platform, a new Canterbury gallery

CLIENT: Platform Gallery, Canterbury

Platform needed a website to support the activities within the shop but when Canterbury went into lockdown in November 2020 there was an urgent requirement to create an online store.

Platform is a new gallery, opened in September 2020 in St Dunstan’s, Canterbury. The gallery curates a range of original art, prints and products by artists and independent makers from Kent and beyond.

Platform needed a website to support the activities within the shop but when Canterbury went into lockdown in November 2020 there was an urgent requirement to create an online store as soon as possible.

Our developers prioritised the store build and within a few days had a fully functioning WooCommerce store integrated with Stripe, ApplePay and Google Pay. Bryter Digital also provided all photography and content.

With supporting campaigns in Instagram and Facebook the online store soon became an important sales outlet for Platform, particularly in the period before Christmas 2020 when Canterbury went into Tier 4 restrictions along with the rest of Kent.

The gallery includes works by landscape artists Karl Terry and Paul Fowler, vibrant contemporary pieces by Ned Kelly, Lesley Davies-Evans and David Ferry. We also showcase exclusive works by Jim Moir, aka Vic Reeves.

Independent brands stocked include Vicky Hageman, Margo Selby, Join Store London, Kate Jones Knitwear, Kinshipped, Row Pinto, Homefolk and more.  We also stock a range of vintage Moroccan textiles, ethically sourced from the medina in Marrakech.
