Few of you know that alongside video games and nature, my other HUGE passion is coffee! I’m truly obsessed with the stuff! So when a good friend of mine (who happens to make THE best espresso ever!) announced he was starting up a mobile coffee company, it was obvious who was doing the brand and site! The brand had to encapsulate all that makes it special, warmth, quality and finesse. It was obvious that the site couldn’t be over engineered, it had to be a one page effective promotional tool. So with this in my head and one of their espressos in my hand, I was boosted and ready to go!
The brand came together very naturally, and we soon settled on the finished design. Warm tones and smooth curls all came together to give that feeling of a luxurious cup of wonderful coffee! With this polished up, we set to work on the site. The final design was an extension of the brand, bringing together the warmth of the coffee and texture of its origins. The story of the companies beginning is key to the passion behind their drinks, so that took centre stage at the top of the design, followed by all the other important information that anyone would need to know. Great project!!
After having the pleasure of finishing the microsite for Natural Selection 2 I was due to move onto the full site and forum re-design, so the brief, while simple (follow the same styling throughout), was also a challenge as I had the forums to tackle!
It was a HUGE honour to be asked to redesign Klei’s new site for 2011, after creating the original design around 4 years ago!
