We are proud to announce the launch of another new client website! This is for a new entrepreneur in the downtown Iowa City area, Beno’s Flowers and Gifts. The new store opened in November and has impressed customers with the unique style and attention to detail.

Fresh flowers and natural plant products (nothing artificial) are central to what they offer. Not only do flowers radiate happiness, they can draw all good things towards you:  the memory of a sunny day, the time spent in your grandmother’s garden, a visit to the cemetery and ultimately, the preciousness of time. Benito selects only flowers and natural products of the highest quality to create memorable moments that will reflect your expression of love and joy or condolences and thanks. All of their floral creations are unique (not pre-packaged or warehouse arranged) and are hand-made to convey your personalized expression.

Beno's Flowers and Gifts | Iowa City Florist

Beno’s Flowers and Gifts is a new florist shop that recently opened in downtown Iowa City.

As for the website, there were some unique challenges to this project. The primary requirements  were to develop a visually striking design that meshed with the overall style that Beno’s wanted to reflect. Their store is very unique and located in downtown Iowa City. We decided to develop the site in WordPress with a WooCommerce backend for their online store. We needed to have an easy to manage backend interface for Benito to receive orders and track products. Custom photography was also central to meeting these goals.

The site has launched just in time for Valentine’s Day. So if you are in the area, stop in and say hello and welcome to the neighborhood. Or look around online and find the unique gift that shows someone significant in your life how important they are. They offer local delivery for only $8 in the Iowa City, Coralville, North Liberty and surrounding area.
