Since its inception in 2020, Makatew Workshops has seen tremendous growth, evolving with the burgeoning demand for Indigenous experiences as well as owner Marc Forgette’s personal journey to reclaim his culture.
New workshops, new products, new customers, even a new location – Marc’s business had evolved, but his website hadn’t kept up.
We met Marc where he was at (literally: we visited his facility a number of times) and worked together to build a website that presents the best version of Makatew while catering to its current and future business needs.
For users, the new website makes it easy to navigate Makatew’s products and services. It highlights the real benefits of hiring Marc, from education to reconciliation.
For Marc, the website simplifies some of his core operating functions, including the ability to promote new workshops and products, capture new leads, and list and manage events at his beautiful new facility in Carp.
Lastly, the site breathes life into the Makatew brand beyond just a logo. Through intentional design elements like typography, photography, iconography, colours, and Cree Syllabics as texture words, the site exudes an identity that’s truer to Marc’s.
