Enter the Athens Era and be immersed with culture.
Athens Era acts as a portal to transport the public to local artists online.
Through this website, users may explore several pieces of work that are tied closely to Athens, GA, communicate with artists, help support small businesses, and bring home a piece of Athens with them.
This immersive experience is designed to spread the Athens culture farther than before and spotlight local artists in a fun and unique way.
Creating the company from the ground-up, we built the foundation on the platform in the Design System. The elements were crafted with intentionality, maintaining the core values and mission of Athens Era.
The website is developed on Wordpress, additional CSS, and with various plug-ins for commmunication and payment features. There are two distinct user flows for artists and buyers.
By establishing a platform specifically curated for Athens artists, it has never been easier for buyers to shop locally and support small businesses all while connecting with the community.
Athens Era offers a marketplace for artists and buyers to come together and exchange products. Using the wordpress plug-in, Dokan, we have been able to set up necessary steps for vendors to sell directly to users on the site.
