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€.

Breeda Murphy

August finished in music, friends reunions and an album launch in Connoly’s of Leap. Breeda – singer, songwriter, musical artist, music facilitator and above all friend launhed her first album and released an amazing video for “A Place in You”. Subscribe to her YouTube channel as more videos are coming soon created by video designer Olivia Walsh.

The graphic design collaboration went on a creative path, getting ready for the concert with a poster design and a Facebook cover design for the event. And my favourite work, the CD cover design for the album.

All this was integrated in Breeda’s website, which we developed and designed last year as a Master Website Design Page.

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.

Leap Scarecrow Festival

A wicked web and graphic design collaboration with the community from Leap Village. I joined Leap Scarecrow Festival in 2016 making scarecrows and installations with a bunch of friends. The madness of creation gave shape to a full “Pandora box” from which we pulled out dragons, a time witch, spiders and  giant purple octopuses taking over food trucks. The charm went on and we made the leap from crafting to web and graphic design requested by the honoured Leap Scarecrow Festival Committee.

A poster and road sign design in Illustrator for the Leap Scarecrow Festival, followed next year by a WordPress website design dedicated both to the community of Leap and to the Leap Scarecrow Festival. The strategy being set that while the festival’s season is off, visitors of Leap can still find what the village has to offer all year round and where they can stay. Moreover, the local people would find who are the local artists, producers and services that they can connect with.

I designed the logo of Leap Village to be represented by a blooming fucshia flower, the delicate symbol of West Cork: “All along the roadways of the south-west of Ireland, on slender arching stalks the beautiful Fuchsia flowers colour the hedgerows from July to October with their rich hues.” I also chose a squiggly typography hued in sap green representing the abundant vegetation of West Cork.

I tweaked the basic WordPress theme in PHP, CSS and HTML to render two different looks for the village and for the festival, playing with the colour palette and graphic design elements. As a result, the website portrays differently both Leap‘s history, heritage and venues and a thorough timeline of the festival’s editions from 2015 to present, with graphic headers, animations, schedules, image galleries, winner listings and stories, know hows, Irish halloween customs and local ghost stories.

The image archive was done with the help of people from Leap, trying to reconstruct the timeline as much as possible.

Thanking all for a unique, witchcrafted experience.
