About Ikonen Mautner
If you ever crossed the road in Herrengasse 2-4, Vienna you couldn’t unsee the fabulous Antique Orthodox Icons store of Ikonen Mautner.
Did you know that founded in 1959, Ikonen Mautner currently has roughly 200 Orthodox icons from the 17th, 18th, and 19th centuries? They are constantly updating and selling their assortment and the store feels like a real museum for an art lover.
So at Ikonen Mautner, you can find a selection of selected high-quality icons from Russia, Greece, the Balkans, the Middle East, and North Africa on display in the gallery. Each one of these icons has a certificate of authenticity from the icon expert at the Viennese Dorotheum.
Why did they need to update the website?
Their old website was outdated and was lacking quality. Our task was to build a new website from scratch. Its old website was built with WIX, but the new one is created with WordPress. We also changed the structure of the website adding and removing new pages and new products.
And the client wanted to have a trilingual website and add Russian as well in addition to German and English.

Why did they choose us?
Ikonen Mautner chose us for their web update because Digidog has great relations with German-speaking audiences. Over the years we have developed more than 30 E-commerce websites and other projects for the German market. With our proven experience and high-quality work, Ikonen Mautner trusted us with the full design and development of their new website.
What did we do
The first thing that we did was start the process of design creation.
Our talented designers completely transformed and changed the old and outdated design of the old website. They worked closely with the client and followed their guidelines and updates.
The inspiration for the website was taken from the old website but it was completely created from scratch. We used Adobe XD for creating the web design.
After completing the design phase we then moved on to the implementation. For that, we used WordPress plugin Elementor
which is a drag-and-drop page builder. With this plugin, we created beautiful pages using a visual editor.
We implemented a Stripe payment system, which ensures that a card is valid and therefore protects customers against every insufficient situation and website users can safely do their business.
As a result of long and diligent work, we built a modern and responsive website, with all the functionalities and fundamentals.
The benefits of having an E-Commerce website
For Ikonen Mautner, having a modern and representative E-commerce website was crucial for many reasons.
First, it’s a great way to reach their current customers and gain new ones with the website. And now they are able to connect with new customers not only in Austria but worldwide.
Now with a fresh website they can increase their brand awareness and run successful and effective marketing campaigns.
The project was a huge success for everyone involved. This is proven by the great review given by our dear client. Communication and relations were always on a high level between the team and the client. It was truly delightful to work on this and we enjoyed the whole process from the beginning to the end.
After completing the project successfully we were offered to manage monthly maintenance of the website. We’ll monitor the website’s overall health and performance. And we’re responsible for keeping the website up-to-date to keep it working at full capacity, engaging and gaining new website visitors.
It’s safe to say that the collaboration between Digidog and Ikonen Mautner will continue for a long time.
