Flowers Across Melbourne

With a need for new category names and product descriptions for a suite of florals and gifts, I worked with FAM to create a fresh tone of voice and playful energy across the site. I provided 50 quirky product names and descriptions, plus snazzy new categories for their B2C website, all in under a week.
