OVER 20 YEARS OF EXPERIENCE
Bloom is located in Seattle, Wa. We're an old company with a new product. Everything we've done over the last 20 years has lead us to where we are today: becoming one of the most experienced Shopify partners in our region, and a sought-after creative agency for wineries.
One of Amazon's first designers
From 1995-1996, Patrick was fortunate enough to work with Jeff Bezos at Amazon.com when they were only 13 people. That relationship began Patrick's interest in ecommerce, and solving the difficult design challenges we faced with selling products online.
Ply Interactive takes shape
After working for Seattle's largest advertising agency for a few years, designing websites for Nestle, Boeing, and Visio, Patrick started his own company: Ply Interactive. The client list grew and projects became more challenging. The team focused our attention on building complex marketing solutions for mid-sized companies around Seattle.
Ply meets Washington State Wine
In 2009 we were hired by the Washington State Wine Commission to redesign their website. We're still their go-to-team for all things web. Our content management system and custom software drives all of their website properties, including their website, the interactive AVA map, and online grape assessment system. Over the years, we've learned a lot and have become very passionate about Washington State Wine.
Our first Shopify website
One of our long-term ecommerce clients needed a site redesign. Their current store software was stale, and wasn't keeping up with modern technology. We discovered Shopify and haven't looked back. Ply is now a registered Shopify Expert, and builds all of our winery websites on their platform.
Bloom: The future of selling wine online
In early 2017, we launched Bloom with a handful of pilot clients. Everyday, we're learning new things about the wine industry, and the Shopify platform. We have big ideas that look to disrupt the winery industry and question how to constantly improve the customer experience. Our agency will offer every service that a winery needs, from label design to interactive tasting room experiences. We're looking forward to our exciting future.
