We worked with Zapata's marketing and design team to create a stunning custom Magento 2 theme with reusable custom assets and stylers. Flyboard.com was built from the ground up to utilize Magento's multi-store functionality. The end result offered completely separate English and French versions of the site, its 400+ products, and a guided experience based on real-time geolocation to bring users looking for dealerships to appropriate information pages.
From there, our team created a custom Google Maps integration to simplify the process of locating dealers and rentals. This one-of-a-kind feature was on-brand, available in French and English, and able to quickly filter through thousands of rows of data to instantly display listings matching users’ chosen criteria.
When it was time to merge Flyboard.com with the legacy Zapata.com, our SEO specialists carefully crafted a plan to optimize their rankings. As a result, Flyboard.com's previous rankings were successfully retained – and Zapata.com skyrocketed. Our efforts took both brand names from the far depths of Google’s search results to the #1 and #2 ranked sites.
Grindstone Design proudly provided lead development for a custom e-learning site built on Wordpress, LearnDash, WooCommerce, and several other essential plugins. We significantly extended the functionality needed to support @HomePrep's students and customers through a variety of custom PHP and JS scripts. AffiliateWP is used to provide reseller functionality and Grindstone wrote a custom Gantry 5 plugin to provide affiliate referrals with reseller themed-and-branded shopping experience.
Using designs, design assets and mockups provided by our client, we incorporated their unique vision to restyle the base theme into a unique, on-brand end-to-end site experience.

We ultimately created a superior user experience while protecting site authority and rankings.Site Link: https://www.athomeprep.com/
Grindstone crafted a unique one-page Grav theme for Team Never Lucky that packed a ton of functionality into a very small, very clean site. We provided on-air/off-air notifications for the client's Twitch.tv stream with an option to watch the stream embedded on the site or visit the main stream page on Twitch. Products could be easily added to the site and all content was easily maintained through Grav's CMS backend.
eCommerce was powered by SnipCart and Grindstone wrote a custom API integration to both get custom shipping rates and push final order data to Amplifier for real-time product fulfillment, inventory tracking, and order processing.Dev Site Link: sea.jellylog.com/~tonkanl/
Grindstone created a custom Gantry 5 theme from scratch based on designs from the talented ORMS team. Being a print shop they needed a large canvas to properly display all their designs and offerings. Great care was taken to maximize the space for desktop users while still providing a quality user experience for mobile users. Many custom Gantry 5 Particles were built to allow for easier back-end management and page creation for WooCommerce products and categories.
We had the pleasure of creating a custom API integration with Printbox to allow users to create custom photo books, products, business cards, and variety of other products inside of a fully-integrated WooCommerce store setup. After the sale users are able to interact with and duplicate past projects from their standard My Account area without ever leaving the site.Site Link: https://www.ormsprintroom.co.za/
