Vancouver-based furniture store Calligaris has launched a new website at <http://www.calligarisstore.ca>. The site, developed by Kimbo Design of Vancouver, is intended to introduce the store's line of Italian furniture to consumers in the Lower Mainland region. "We created a distilled look that would feature their fashion-inspired modern furniture," said Kimbo creative director Kim Pickett. "It's all about the furniture pieces, and we didn't want to distract from that." The assignment also included online branding, search engine optimization and social media activities.
