Burnthebook's Artistic Journey

Bondholder Burnthebook has just launched the new website for rising artist and children’s author, Laura Wall. The website includes an online store and blog, as well as vibrant imagery and animation from Laura’s captivating series of children’s books, Goose and Friends.

Jackie Clarke, Director and co-owner of the Derby-based digital agency, first discovered Laura a few years ago when she bought one of her paintings whilst on holiday in Fowey, Cornwall.

The website is integrated with Purveya, Burnthebook's own eCommerce platform.

Jackie Clarke, Director at Burnthebook said, “Working with Laura to realise her vision and help her to develop her brand has been an absolute delight. It’s been an incredible journey; since we started to work with Laura, all kinds of opportunities have presented themselves to her including book deals, a TV series and the growth of the Goose and Friends merchandise.

"Our Purveya™ eCommerce platform has been instrumental is helping her to sell her own products directly, helping her to retain profit, rather than relying on selling through third parties. .

"The main purpose of our own store was to enable us to understand the end-to- end eCommerce experience of e-retailers so we could build our own platform, so we are delighted to be able to pass on not only our digital experience, but also our operational knowledge, to help and guide Laura through the whole process.”
