Mark Trafford is a retired business owner who started a business doing the thing he loves the most. Travelling to new places, and spending time with pets. House and Pet sitting services came to bOnline as a clean slate. There was no logo, no brand and no real visual direction. But after speaking with Mark during our initial brief, I managed to get an overwhelming sense of the man behind the business. I immediately created a visual map in my head as to how the business and brand needed to be conveyed. We discussed some basic ideas for certain visual elements that Mark wanted to highlight. I also made sure I understood why these elements were important before the initial design.
The client wanted the colour blue to be quite dominant on the site. He gave me the freedom to build a palette around that. We decided to go with an eye-catching orange for all call to actions and accents throughout the site. This pairing adds a casualness to the site, even when used together with a serif font. I made sure to use tons of stunning scrolling, parallax background to add interest and keep the user’s eye engaged throughout. All elements combined, gives a great insight into the personality that is Mark.
Mark was absolutely overjoyed with the website from the very first draft right to the end of the process. He felt the website design blended together seamlessly with his content and really conveyed his personality in a visual way.
The client left a wonderful 5-star review of our services saying “I was then passed over to the design team where a lady called Sharné took me under her wing and designed me a brilliant website which was both practical, user-friendly and very nice to look at.
My website has now gone live and is looking great. The whole process did not take long at all and after a few changes that I made, I’m happy to say that it’s a company that I will definitely recommend for web design. Thank you for all your help”
