How do you contain such an immense and beautiful landscape and history in one site? I mood-boarded (and mood-boarded, and mood-boarded) until we finally struck the perfect tone.
Even a simple, personal site requires substantial consideration for usability. Knowing our visitors intimately, I was aware of the following constraints:
As a final touch, I designed several simple icons and patterns that we used throughout the wedding materials. Rich in the sage green, sandstone red, and river blue that inspired us, they add a bit of personality and tied the whole package together.
