Dark Peak Books & Gifts
An independent bookshop, situated at the gateway to the Peak District in Glossop, offering a carefully selected choice of brilliant books and gorgeous gifts.

THE CHALLENGE

How did it all come about?

Mel O’Brien had recently taken over the ownership of the famous Bay Tree Bookshop when she was introduced to Peak Promotions by a shared business partner. Mel agreed that the website could do with a bit of a refresh to ensure it complemented her business strategy.

We proposed 3 different options for Mel to consider and agreed upon a course of action. It was important for Mel that she could update her clients and anyone visiting the website with events taking place or new books and gifts that came into the store. She also wanted to engage her Book and Bottle Book Club by offering an engaging and easy to publish review system.

Gift Certificates and Annual Book Subscriptions also had to be easy to find and enquire, while following the existing brand guidelines that was set up previously and illustrated on previously printed material.

***Summer of 2022 saw the full rebranding of her bookshop to Dark Peak Books & Gifts. Peak Promotions were delighted to support Mel through this process and ultimately deliver on time and to budget a new website design that she loves!

We are delighted with the final UX of this website and look forward to supporting Mel and her independent bookshop throughout the years to come.
