My first website is live!

15 Apr

The first site I’ve ever designed is now live!! whoop whoop! I’m actually a bit behind on this one. I completely forgot to post this when it actually went live…a few weeks ago.  oops.

I did the design and a friend did all the coding and backend jazz (I’ll learn that stuff eventually – one step a time). For my very first first foray into web design, I’m pretty proud I must say. Especially considering I no NOTHING about web design whatsoever and totally blagged my way into the job! Its for a start-up market research company. As it is a corporate site, I wanted it to be quite minimalist to ensure the content and information would take precedence. I also wanted it to be themed around their existing logo…which I’ll reiterate, I had nothing to do with! *cough*

I think its especially important for a start-up brand to have a very cohesive identity and incorporate it into everything they do. You’re the new kid in class, so it’s key to really establish who you are and the best way to do that is have a clear, consistent voice/identity.  I did a print brochure for them as well, which is also based on the same aesthetic. Its all about consistency I says.
