project peek : duet weddings

The Duet Weddings redesign has been a long time coming. I've been working with designer Rebecca Stone since 2007. The bold, chic, and sophisticated website I designed for her then-budding wedding design studio was a feat. The black-and-cream and hot pink palette stood out in a sea of pastels. The expansive site made room for a ton of information and photography, making it easy for brides-to-be to see why they should hire Rebecca to design and plan their weddings.

But so much has changed for Rebecca in the past 7 years. She has made a name for herself in the industry, garnered press and recognition for her perfectly styled weddings. Her business has grown, her style has evolved, and she has found another partner along the way—making their business a true duet. 

So it was time for a new site at long last.

After many meetings over many cups of coffee, Rebecca, Cathleen, and I realized that we needed to strip everything down to the essentials. I started by redesigning their logo. The result is a simple but sophisticated type-driven mark.

Then we hired talented photographer Miha Matei to take some still life shots for the website. The photos—styled of course by the Duet ladies—do such a beautiful job of showing the attention to beauty and detail in their work.

Lastly, I put it all together in a clean and airy website that includes a bustling portfolio, press section, and blog. Zoe Rooney did her coding magic to bring it all to life. Now that it's all up and running, I feel like the whole website is sighing with relief! I know I am. 

And it's never better than hearing from the clients' themselves how happy they are with the final product. Rebecca said: "Wow. It feels so incredible to see this site up and running. Our deepest thanks for making this happen. We couldn't be more thrilled. It looks AMAZING!"

I am available for branding services. If you need help with business naming, logo and website design, or consulting, please get in touch. I'd love to hear from you.

    Through only education you know about yourself, you recognized yourself and identity. You learn and know about and all over the world and increase your knowledge about your surroundings. No doubt it is the basic purpose of education that it makes you aware from your surroundings and you know everything.
