Case Studies

AXEnAYLEE

Accessories that tell a story of beauty and strength from the purview of a Black woman

AXEnAYLEE was born in a makeshift artist's workspace in 2012, in Marin County, California, to Amber Danté, Founder and Designer in Chief. As an up-and-coming specialty accessories brand, what launched in the summer of 2020 began as an earring-making hobby for Amber. She conceptualizes, handcrafts, and assembles each piece while intentionally seeking partnerships with women artisans and merchants, globally. 

Challange

Grow online sales

Amber noticed the shit to ecommerce and wanted to launch the online component of her business. A solopreneur, having evolved AXEnAYLEE from a hobby into a lifestyle business, Amber wanted to grow her online presence and increase revenue. Not knowing where to start, Amber turned to 150birds to develop her brand story and establish her ecommerce presence. 

Solution

Market research and website development

She turned to 150birds to take her consumer brand online. We started by identifying her customer personas and then moved on to building out her Shopify website. She already had her photography done, and those assets helped provide a consistent brand feel across the images and colors used across her website.
