Florista Website Design and logo design on an affordable budget

florista website design and logo design clonakilty west cork

Designing a WordPress website for Florista based in Clonakilty was a pleasure. I love flowers and all the imagery for the Florista website design were a delight to work on.

Nicola Stack is the creative flower artist behind Florista. Her passion pushed beyond a hobby into a floristry local business addressed mainly to West Cork weddings and special events.As any other business, Nicola needed for her flower arrangements an online presence with a branding design that would ‘represent beautiful, unique and natural inspired floristry, a relaxed style using beautiful and luxury flowers to showcase to clients’. 

Following her brief, I designed a flowery logo that would embrace the name, arching from top to the right. For the logo design’s typography I used Cormorant, the elegant type family developed by Christian Thalman and available in the Google Fonts library.

Moving on to the website design I used the WordPress platform that Nicola can easily manage, add and edit content. Soft pale colours such a light sage for the backgrounds together with powder pink touches make a relaxed scroll. The website’s homepage opens with a hero image of one of Nicola’s gorgeous flower arrangements. The website continues with descriptions of her flower services in West Cork and a floristry portfolio. Scrolling down the readers can find a contact form where they can get in touch with Nicola. The homepage finishes with a series of testimonials from her happy clients.

Both the Florista website design and logo design were done on a budget, displaying the needed functionalities and generating the graphics in the price of 800€.

Harpist Ireland

harpist ireland website design for artists Clonakilty, West Cork

This summer opened in the rhythms of breezy harp music. Carys Ann Evans is a harpist for over 30 years based in Clonakilty, West Cork, performing at Wedding Ceremonies, Corporate Events, Private Functions and Cruise Ships. Carys needed a website redesign and a website transfer from her UK hosting to an Irish hosting service. Trust me, it was so pleasing to build website while listening to harp.

The former website was developed on HTML with no possibility of self adding or editing content. The artist’s new website required redesign on a WordPress platform with an easy system to manage her own content and to be responsive on all devices, especially on smartphones. Carys was thoughtful in integrating all the multimedia content for anybody interested in adding harp music to their weddings and events to easily find, view and listen to her music samples. The website structured the content as to display weddings and events through photo galleries, harp music reviews through testimonial carousels, harp music samples in a “Look & Listen” portfolio with an embedded YouTube video playlist, an embedded Soundcloud audio album for Harp and a custom music album with songs that play directly on homepage. 

As for branding, I designed a logo inspired from one of her album photos taken by photographer Kate Bean. I sketched Carys pad & pencil playing harp, trying to get the flow of the harp and hands movement. Than I brought the sketch in Illustrator to vectorize it and added a typography style that has the pattern of the strings with elongated letters and curvaceous rhythm.

The logo was integrated in the website both coloured and negative output, and in a roll up design and flyer design printed at Inspire in Skibbereen.

Business IQ

Business IQ is the reason Digital Fox started its journey as a small business as website design, print and presentation design. And in this project the Fox threw them all aces in.

Shortly, Business IQ is a limited company based in Skibbereen, West Cork, that delivers empowering and impactful business training to help you start and grow your business. Among its clients, there are Local Enterprise Office, Enterprise Ireland and Cork County Council.

The partners from Business IQ needed a strong representative brand, starting from the logo and intial graphic symbols they had. In order to strenghten the brand and make it friendly, I sketched up in Illustrator a character that “shows the user’s way” through Business IQ’s services.

The brief contained a new website design with an ecommerce engine to sell their manuals and a user account for their trainers to log in and view their course materials.

The brief also included, PowerPoint and Prezi presentations for their tenders.

Moreover, the project included video & animation design for training small businesses in the “know hows” of setting up a new businesses and how to carry on with it in different stages of development.
