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.
