I am really excited to share with you today a new logo + website project! Melissa Jill, a wedding and portrait photographer, contacted me to design the new visual identity for her company called “ALBUM DESIGN TEMPLATES”. Her album template designs are very clean and modern and her personal style aesthetic has a home-y slightly retro feel. I was stoked to be a part of this project.
As you know I’ve been on a video kick… So instead of just writing a blog post about the project I decided to film a short video to let you in on the process for creating the brand and site. I am kinda stoked because I filmed and edited the video myself. AH! There’s TONS to learn, but you gotta start somewhere.
The project consisted of a logo, visual identity, and the website design. The design process was an interesting one. Melissa desired something different and funky with the layout of the website, which is usually based off of a strong, yet unusual grid. But the album design templates had different grids of their own… which brought a challenging dynamic. We worked through it and Melissa feel in love with one of my Sitehouse website designs so we completely customized it to fit the needs of her brand.
I did not design the templates… those are all her!! And they totally rock! The website was built on the Showit software and is viewable on all mobile devices! WAAHOO! Go check out the finished site HERE.
Let me know what you think, if you’d like to see more videos, and anything I can improve on next time. I’m serious. I’m a video-new-be and would love to hear it.
