Custom Website


OTTEGA needed a custom website to show customers that they meant business. The website needed to tell a story about who BOTTEGA was and what to expect from an experience at their salon. We developed content to show off their features, kind, unpretentious and focused on two very important things - their customers and the planet. Building out their blog articles has given us a vehicle to keep their website maintained and fresh for every new visitor. It also provides us with easily shareable snippets for social media engagement. We collaborate with BOTTEGA to produce articles that will bolster their brand including tips and advice to benefit their customers and the planet at the same time. This website was developed on the WordPress framework with minimal intervention from plugins.



randing & logo design was the first step we had to tackle for BOTTEGA. Luckily for us, Amber and Leiloni had done their homework. They knew who they needed to be for their customers and they spent a lot of time making sure they were committed to their message. Sustainable, and approachable. They wanted BOTTEGA to feel as collaborative as the definition was meant to be. Stylists were seen as equal partners and were there to share in the art of hairstyling. Atomic developed a custom logomark using abstract brushes to create a painted look and imply the artistic side of hairstyling. These business owners knew that they wanted anything but boring for their brand. Bright colours were the mandate from the very beginning and once you've met the owners you quickly see that they are anything but dull. The result is a friendly brand that catches the eye. The paint strokes allowed us to create a brand system where we can add splashes of colour for calls to action. The logo was developed as a logo mark and wordmark to use in horizontal and vertical placements. Interior and exterior signage, wraps, business cards, clothing, and more were created from the new logo.

Live Chat + Lead Generation


YNCRO was developed for REALTORS® and when you plug a tool like SYNCRO into a different vertical you can easily see where things have the potential to take on new meaning. This was the case for the chat to text tool in its original form for the busy hair salon in West Kelowna. BOTTEGA Salon generated so much traffic and produced so many chats that they literally couldn't keep up. We removed the website chat and text message mechanisms but kept lead processing the same. That meant that all contact forms and website inquiries were sent redundantly through email and text message. However, the owners didn't need to stress out about providing instant responses with such a high volume of requests. This is a great example of how good software can be adapted. The owners of BOTTEGA don't have to be concerned about missing leads because they're all stored in one central location with SYNCRO. They were able to customize how the lead generation filtered through to them so that it worked for how they wanted to do business. Adaptable, simple lead generation - it works.

After nearly 1 year of positioning, and SEO management, BOTTEGA receives approximately 50 digital contact requests per month for business, not including phone calls. All infrastructure is provided to track and manage leads through SYNCRO. This framework provides conduits to communicate with customers via SMS, Chat, and contact forms so you never miss a lead or a customer that requires support.
