Site Showcase: Soul Space

How to mix color, texture and professionalism with a bit of whimsy. Duh with Ashley from Hello Big Idea's insane talent! We love the fun aspects of this site, but also it was done in no time flat and amazingly custom :)


Client's Site Description: Professional website

Template Chosen: Brine

Why did you choose that template?: Love the Brine family for ev-er-y-thing.

What was the Client's Objective?: Bring her three loves together in one business - real estate, home design and health coaching.

Tell us a bit about the design process?: This was our first Total Game Changer! We brought Alyssa into the studio and worked out her site for 5 days. It was an awesome experience having her right next to us for quick approvals and her immediate input. We dreamed as big as we could!

How did you help the client differentiate their business through design?: The photography by Lauren Pusateri really made the project come to life. We were able to capture her in her three different elements to help people understand quicker what she actually does. One of my favorite parts of her site is on the desktop view the little mini navigation up top to lead people to "find their happiness".

Is there custom development? What about custom added CSS? Can you tell us why you did or did not use these edits?: TONS of customization here. Especially from desktop to mobile to make sure everything looked beautiful on every device.

What are the top three creative features you used in the design?: Ooooh! So many! Top three would be... 1. Little mini navigation. 2. The sticky site description on the home page. 3. On the headings we added little background boxes to certain words.

Anything else you want us to know about the site?: Lauren Pusateri (HBI studio mate!) KILLED IT with the photography. :)
