Logo Design

creativesoul-logo

WHAT WE DID: Creative Soul Photography is above all else, a couple of modern photographers with a very distinctive style. They wanted a brand mark that would tell that story without overpowering their work, particularly since the logo will sometimes be used to watermark photos. We created a simple, but distinctive mark with a customized script within a frame reminiscent of a photography mat.

Website Design

creativesoul-website

WHAT WE DID: My client had very distinctive ideas for what their website should look and feel like. It had to be clean and modern, but still colorful and warm. We used a combination of both bold and subtle patterns and textures, along with distinctive shapes to accomplish what is easily our favorite website design to date.

Logo Design

lotusmamma-logo

WHAT WE DID: Lotus Mamma is a Swedish brand that focuses on natural pregnancy and mothering and incorporates yoga and healthy living as huge parts of its messaging. The brand icon was designed to carefully reflect all of that, with a mother in lotus pose birthing a lotus flower in her belly.

Website Design

WHAT WE DID: The Lotus Mamma website functions as a blog, but also a hub for important information on the company’s services. The home page offers a variety of entry points for potential and existing customers, but also for visitors who would like to follow the blog.

Logo Design

loam-logo1

WHAT WE DID: As the name implies, Latina on a Mission is a website designed for the modern Latina and her family. As such, the logo needed to be a simple, but bold, representation of that. We went for a simple, flowing, text-based logo inside a circular badge that can be customized to best fit the environment in which it is displayed.

WHAT WE DID: Because the logo was so simple, we were able to build feminine details into the website around it. The site is, first and foremost, a blog, but it also needed to act as a real online destination for readers. Two carefully-placed content sliders and a category-based navigation menu help readers easily find what interests them.

livinghomegrown-website1

WHAT WE DID: Theresa Loe of Living Homegrown already had an awesome logo for her brand, but she needed an equally awesome blog to go with it. The site was designed to take full advantage of the earthy, organic nature of her content in a style that feels all her own.

Logo Design

differently-logo

WHAT WE DID: Differently is a clothing company Hibiscus Creative founder Jennae Petersen started with her husband. The company offers t-shirts with environmentally, socially, politically and personally conscious messages, all printed on organic or recycled cotton. The logo needed to be unique and identifiable, but simple and versatile enough to be endlessly adapted to t-shirt designs. The result is a logotype that clearly illustrates that Differently is not your average clothing company.

WHAT WE DID: Hibiscus is also responsible for all of Differently’s t-shirt designs.

Website Design

differently-website

WHAT WE DID: The Differently website is much more loud and boastful than the logo. It has a dark, urban feel that pairs well with the sassy messages on the t-shirts. The home page features large detail images of several designs above the fold in a slide show, with thumbnails of more designs below the fold. Although the company sells its shirts via Skreened.com, the website is designed to be the first stop in the buying process.

Logo Design

stilettomedia-logo

WHAT WE DID: Stiletto Media is a social marketing company that works with brands to engage with bloggers in a variety of ways, from blog campaigns to events. With a sassy leader at its helm the logo needed to exhibit sophistication without being too upscale. We created a custom stiletto shoe icon paired with an RSS icon and a friendly upright script for an overall look that is instantly recognizable.

stilettomedia-forum

WHAT WE DID: The Stiletto Media website features a blog as the front page, which makes sense, given that the company was developed by and for bloggers. It includes a content slider that allows the client to put major stories and events front and center. We also developed a private forum using Simple:Press and custom icons and badges to go with it.

Website Design

meaganne-website

WHAT WE DID: Meaganne McCandess is a makeup artist and hair stylist with a colorful, unique personality. It only makes sense that her new website reflect that. She wanted a site that would act as a portfolio of her past work and help her capture leads. The new site does all this with a bunch of fancy window dressing that completely relfects who Meaganne is an artist.

burninglamp-website

WHAT WE DID: Burning Lamp is an independent publishing company that works primarily with Christian authors. They came to Hibiscus with a vibrant logo and needed a clean, dynamic website to go with it. We created a custom home page that would put Burning Lamp’s books and strongly religious philosophy front and center, with room for their latest blog posts at the bottom.

Logo Design

redcarpetmamas-logo
WHAT WE DID: The client planned to start a magazine-style website focused primarily on fashion and entertainment. We created a brand mark based on the “red carpet” name that is bold and contemporary enough to work at the top of a website like this.

Magazine-Style Blog Design

redcarpetmamas-website

WHAT WE DID: The client wanted a custom home page that allowed her to show the latest posts from a variety of categories rather than a typical blog front page with the latest posts. We achieved this by using a Thesis child theme with multiple widget areas that we then customized deeply to match her branding.
