Another web design project, another local client! This time in Seattle! We were so excited to have the opportunity to help Magnolia Rhapsody take their current Squarespace and transform it into a completely new vision that fits them to a tee!
We start every design project by having our client fill out a questionnaire. This gives us the ins and outs of their vision as well as the functionality they desire. It’s the perfect starting place in the design process.
When we received Magnolia Rhapsody’s questionnaire, it was very clear the style they were going for. Most clients provide links to websites within the same industry or a complimentary industry but Magnolia Rhapsody stretched outside of the box. As deejays, they sent us links to lighting companies and a video marketing company… all with a pretty central theme. Based off these examples and the other information in their questionnaire, we focused on the following for their web design:
Create a layered look with graphics and other design elements
Create movement on each page through custom animations
Condense a few pages for a more streamlined navigation and better organization of the website
Highlight events of all types, rather than just weddings
Here's a peek at how it all turned out (make sure you watch the video to see the movement from the text and graphic animations, video and parallax scrolling):
The About page was one area where we condensed a few previous pages. Since we had parallax pages for the rest of the site, it only made sense to combine the company about page with the team page. This was also the perfect page to add a video as a background to show them at work.
Testimonial pages are always a little tricky… mainly because we want to give clients a unique design compared to more testimonial pages while truly highlighting what their clients and customers have to say.
Since Magnolia Rhapsody had longer testimonials, we thought it would be perfect to pull out a highlight quote from the testimonial to really grab the attention of their website visitors.
This site was so exciting to work on. The custom coded animations and layered look really brought their site to life while also staying really true to their brand. We can’t think of a more appropriate site to add so much movement to and we are thrilled with how it all turned out!
