Case Study (web design)


Texet is a stationery company based in Manchester that needed an online answer to a complexed question. We created a bespoke eCommerce platform for their wholesale clients built in Shopify.


Company Name: The Hira Company Ltd
Date: June 2021

A proud family-owned UK business specialising in the import and distribution of branded consumer products. The Company itself was established in 1959 and is regarded as one of the UK’s largest suppliers to major retail and trade outlets.

Brief & Draft Design

We drafted up a proposal and created custom wire-frames to give an idea of the initial design.

Proto type & Testing

Once approved, we got to work on testing necessary features and creating core pages and cornerstone content.

Build & Development

We built the site using the Shopify CMS with custom development around the wholesale aspect of the website.

The Requirements

The Hira Company Ltd approached us with an idea to make a wholesale version of their e-commerce website for the trade industry. We took on their vision and embraced their customer-first ethos, ensuring that the User Experience (UX) was a crucial part of our design.

After briefing out the website and understanding the needs of both the company and its clients, we were able to create a bespoke eCommerce platform utilizing the Shopify CMS, making it extremely easy for The Hira Company to manage the website post launch.

The Result

The site offers tiered pricing, discounts for volume purchases which are all hidden from the public behind a log-in system. The site also needed to work with an existing stock control system based abroad. These requirements made for a complicated build, but we were equal to the challenge.


GHOST just understood what we needed. They quickly got to work after a thorough briefing and the website came around in no time. A highly skilled group with the knowledge and know-how to deal with all our requests & extra features.
