Darla is the kind of person who is ALL IN. Whether she's creating crazy gorgeous monograms for Larry English and Nicole Williams' wedding, helping her musician husband Jose Vietti with his logo, or handling all the craziness of being a mom of 2 boys and running her incredible wedding and event stationery design business ... she kills it each and every time. On top of that, when she is interacting with you, she's focused and makes you feel like she has all the time in the world. I'm lucky to call her a friend and the journey we've taken since the Style Unveiled days to now has led to me creating her an online space that she is super excited about!
Before Darla hired me her website didn't pass the Google mobile optimization test and she was feeling a dip 'big time' - the website below is what Darla had before I got my hands on it:
I wanted to go the exact opposite direction with Darla's website ... bring her into a mobile optimized world that visitors would go crazy over ... and so I designed this:
Darla's homepage scrolls roughly 3 times on a mobile phone ... but the last thing people will want to do is get annoyed and leave ... it's GORGEOUS!! There are 'call to action' buttons at every turn and her work is undeniable!! It's clear from the get-go that Darla has BEEN AROUND ... this isn't her first rodeo ... it's also very clear that she isn't stuck with one look ... this girl can do it all and this means any style of bride will want to stick around on this website for MORE!
When it came to designing Darla's portfolio page I wanted to make sure her stationery was FRONT AND CENTER but that potential clients could still get a peek into the weddings and events she is a part of. Upon each thumbnail click a visitor will open a gallery that has the details Darla designed as well as a few other images from the wedding to show a theme and flow of the day. I'm OBSESSED!!!!
Darla, I can't wait to eat dinner with you and your beautiful family in July when I fly down to Disneyland with my crew ... I adore you, I'm so excited for what this website is going to do and I can't wait to upload MORE stunning images to this website when you have them!!! Congrats on your website launch!!!!!
