WEBSITE DESIGN + BRANDING
I’m grateful that I got the opportunity to design my own website + branding; I can truly say that I built my company from the ground up through learning, growing + honing my skills as an artist.
I wanted my brand to fully represent me and who I am. How I operate, what I love, what I’m passionate about; I wanted that to be fully communicated visually + through carefully curated copy that makes you feel like you’re talking to an good friend. I like to think of myself as an old soul; I dig deep, I want to know people’s stories, want them to know they’re valued, important, cared for + worthy. I wanted my brand to exude those things. I wanted people to feel inspired, comfortable + at home when they came across my brand or website. I want to invite adventure + new ideas; exploration of unknown spaces.
I’m pretty into nature (as I hope you can tell by exploring my website! lol); I love hiking, rock climbing, exploring…all sorts of whatnot. I had taken a look at other people’s websites + they just didn’t feel right for me. It wasn’t my style, it wasn’t my preferred layout, + none of it had a lick of nature! I wondered if it would be too much to incorporate all of the things I loved onto my website; after all, it is my business!
But then I realized that the business is me and if I tried to make it anything other than that, I would lose sight of my branding identity.
So, in short, I did whatever the hell I wanted with my branding + website! I fine-tuned it (+ continue to fine-tune it) to have as much of myself + my passions incorporated as possible.
Over the course of my business, I’ve had three or four different logo concepts, + I believe I have finally landed on the one that will stick around for a while. It took a little time to discover her, but here she is in all of her beautiful, nature-y glory! Featuring a deeply lined mountain of blues + grays, along with stars sprinkled above it. It fits in perfectly with the nature mood I’ve set for the rest of my website, and she’s here to stay!
