‘Hanabi’ (花火) is the Japanese word for fireworks, a combination of two words – ‘Hana’ means flower and ‘bi’ means fire. In Japanese culture, fireworks are regarded as a thing of beauty and an experience that brings people together.
It’s this idea of creating emotional design experiences for the web, connecting brands with their audiences that is behind everything we do at Hanabi.
With two decades of web design and development experience, our extensive knowledge of both the eCommerce market and our focus on the leading commerce platforms – Shopify and Magento, we help start‑ups, small and mid-sized businesses bring their ideas to life.
Our talented professionals assemble for each project’s unique requirements, working closely with our clients, understanding them inside out to help solve business problems with strategy and craft.
Our professionals have worked with some of the biggest brands including Cloud Nine, Virgin, Garraways, Eden Springs, Visit Lincoln, Natural Instinct and ContextIS.
Neil worked in partnership with Emma Tatlow, Head of Visit Lincoln to create the website for Visit Lincoln featuring a variety of local attractions.
Here’s Emma’s reflection on the experience:
Reducing our carbon footprint
When we started Hanabi, we knew that we also wanted to do good – by supporting charities and social enterprise when we can. Starting any new business is always a challenge but we made a start to this commitment by becoming a founding business with Ecologi.
Ecologi is a social enterprise from Bristol – passionate about climate action and they invest money into tree planting (partnering with The Eden Reforestation Projects) and carbon offset projects in places like Madagascar, Guatemala and Uganda.
Ecologi is also now increasing impact by funding a new reforestation project in Scotland, helping to plant a deciduous forest, approved by Scottish Natural Heritage.
Along with many other businesses and individuals around the world, we’re supporting this project by planting trees to offset our carbon footprint through the Climate Positive Workforce scheme to offset our carbon footprint.
Through our commitment to delivering sustainable web design and development, we will also plant 50 trees for every new website that we launch to support the rewilding of our planet.
To date (03 February 2021), Hanabi has planted 390 trees and offset 20.18 tonnes of CO2e.
