Sami Jo Small wanted a modern and highly engaging website that could attract the attention of her diverse audience of those interested in learning more about her as a public speaker, author, podcast host or hockey school owner-operator.

Mapping user types to content journeys required multiple stakeholder discussions with Sami Jo and ongoing inter-team collaboration. The project also needed to be delivered within a tight budget and timeframe to coincide with the launch of her new book, "Sami Jo Small, The Role I Played."

The redesigned user experience also included online registration forms for the hockey schools, Shopify integration for the sale of merchandise and Sami Jo's new book.

We were also delighted and honored to have received 5 international awards from three different award competitions for our work on the Sami Jo Small project.
