As part of a rebrand for Corrigans Original, I was approached to redesign their website.  Working with the beautiful illustrations by the artist Charlotte Day, the initial objective of the website was to build brand awareness and as a B2B sales tool.  The plan is to add an online shop to it in the future.

Launching a new business in a completely new industry takes vision and bravery. It was such a privilege to work in partnership with Gayle at Sunflower Celebrations, who had a very clear brand vision from the outset.  I did a very happy dance when she said at the first creative presentation that I had "nailed the brief, and more".  After launching her business, within a month she had fully booked her Summer wedding calendar.

Emma had outgrown her website in the two years she had been in business, and as a previous photography client of mine, approached me to give her site a complete redesign.  It's great to work on a project that includes a photography brief, as I was able to seamlessly bring the photographic style and website design together to create a strong brand image.
