The award-winning animation studio saw a need among creators for better production tools. So, they decided to launch an online store and provide everyone with tools, assets, and resources developed by them during their successful productions.
Recognizing the potential of this market, Montreal-based, award-winning animation studio e→d films wanted to leverage its expertise and sell online assets that they developed across many of their successful projects - from Photoshop brushes to character rigs and handcrafted animated elements, as well as helpful tutorials, and other useful resources.
The animation studio faced many challenges with their previous website and online store, including a cumbersome website, poor navigation, way too slow loading time, non-customizable search options, and a backend platform and solution architecture that came with its own set of limitations. All these challenges led to unsatisfactory customer experience and created barriers to exploit the full potential of the market. Our Canadian partner Yaksa set out to change all of this.
