Arganic, an exciting startup company who produce one of the rarest oils in the world from the Moroccan argan tree, wanted a website which would promote their product, allow them to connect with customers through news updates, provide a resource for recipes incorporating their unique oil, and (crucially) allow them to sell directly to customers online. They also needed mailing list support.

Arganic approached us after having a difficult experience with a previous developer. Working from their original design brief, we completely rebuilt the site on a different CMS framework, incorporating a strong e-commerce platform.

The site was built on a Drupal 6.2 framework, with Ubercart integration.

Dana Elemara, Arganic's founder, said: "I approached Chris at Melior after experiencing some problems with a previous developer. He reacted quickly, understood our needs and appreciated our rush to get things going. He completely exceeded all expectations. Communication skills were brilliant, I was particularity impressed at how quickly he would respond to emails. He managed to fulfil everything we wanted exactly as we wanted it and as a bonus he would use his initiative to make valid suggestions and recommendations most of which we took on. Where we were a little bit vague or busy and forgetful at times he would fill in the gaps for us perfectly which is so convenient. It's refreshing to work with someone so intelligent who also understands things from a visual, business, and marketing perspective. Chris also ensured we were able to use the site and update our website easily, he even added in extras that we didn't expect. What a pleasure to work with! He clearly takes pride in his work and I would recommend him in an instant."
