Site Showcase: Olive Events Catering
No Surprise that this awesome post is from the kick-ass Ashley at Hello Big Idea! Her team re-invents ways to see layout in Squarespace that is fun and professional. Could you ask for more?
Client's Site Description: Professional website
Template Chosen: Pacific
Why did you choose that template?: This is a bit more simpler template that would fit well with their Squarespace knowledge.
What was the Client's Objective?: Update their site from Wix!
Tell us a bit about the design process?: These boss ladies are local here in Kansas City. They were able to come into the studio, check out our new digs and immediately loved our vibe - love when that happens. We were able to do most everything else with them through our 8 week brand and site process online. They were a dream to work with and their food is TO DIE FOR good.
How did you help the client differentiate their business through design?: They love BOLD and vibrant. This was a favorite client because we also branded them and they took their brand and ran with it - doing everything we hold people do with their files. They even threw a brand launch party that was totally based off the brand board we created for them. Can you say... DREAM CLIENT?!
Is there custom development? What about custom added CSS? Can you tell us why you did or did not use these edits?: A little bit - mostly for the look on mobile. Sometimes placing text on header images can respond funny. We dropped some CSS in to make sure text was still very readable on smaller devices.
What are the top three creative features you used in the design?: 1. Brining in the olive branch all over their site on backgrounds and images.
2. Small illustrated icons that helped define what they do.
3. Banners of color to break up their sample menu's page with a couple fun quotes.
Vendors used?: None.
