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.
