As you can see just from the photo above, this is an absolute EPIC brand + website launch from Kelsey at Honey Side Up Creative and I for Lacey O.
It's not often that I have the opportunity to meet my clients in person. But, I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to meet Lacey in-person in March! When Kelsey and I finally met in person (read more about that on The Rising Tide Society!), I had the wonderful opportunity to be welcomed with open arms to my first TuesdaysTogether meeting in Oceanside, CA. This ended up being one of Lacey's last meetings with this awesome group of people, as she was headed out to move to Washington D.C. come June! Talk about fate, right? ;)
It was there that I had the opportunity to meet Lacey in person; just one short day after I met Kelsey for the first time in California. While we didn't have an opportunity to talk much about branding + website design in-person, I knew from the minute we met that her brand would be much different than other brands we've designed in the past. This brand would be fierce, chic, and one that would make jaws drop.
As Kelsey began working through Lacey's brand a few weeks later, I was floored as she pieced it all together. The colors and patterns that Lacey chose for her aesthetic were bold, yet chic. Classy, yet show-stopping. Between the aesthetic and knowing Lacey's gorgeous portfolio, I knew that this website had to be different. It had to be one that people would go, "Wait.. THAT'S Squarespace!?"
I'm so lucky and honored to have designed this website for this epic #bossbabe. It was challenging for me in all the best ways, in that I took my expertise in custom coding to a level that I never thought would be possible. It took me out of my comfort zone, allowing me to grow as a creative business owner. And, the best part?! It showcases the true brand of all that is Lacey O.
SQUARESPACE DESIGN WORK DETAILS
- Website: Lacey O.
- Template Chosen: Fulton
- Why This Template: We actually started with this template, then knocked it to developer mode to add some custom features in it for Lacey! We love the full-width feel of this template and it really gave us a good starting point.
- Custom CSS Coding: Can I say we custom coded everything? Because it was pretty damn close! Seeing this brand come to life is code is absolutely EPIC. Here are a few of the long list of items that were custom coded: Pattern at the top of the header, pattern inside the navigation, hover-over color in the navigation, transition speed of the gallery, custom fonts installed, custom border around three images on the home page, pattern in the footer of the website. And mobile has a whole set of separate coding!
- Fonts Chosen: Crystal Sky and Playfair Display
Lacey - Thank you from the bottom of my heart for challenging me in the best ways. You've made me grow not just as a designer, but as a business owner. Chatting with you over the last few weeks has been something I've truly loved. The fact that we've been able to launch this epic brand and website for you makes me SO incredibly happy. Thank you for trusting us to use our creative eye to bring everything to life here for you. We couldn't be more excited to have worked with you and to put your brand in our portfolios!
