website launch | andrew roby events
We, honestly, cannot contain our excitement as we are FINALLY ready to unveil an all-new Website Design for Andrew Roby Events, the premiere event planner in the Washington, D.C. metro area. From elegant weddings to corporate shindigs, Andrew and his team are passionate about creating magical experiences for their clients.
We have had the pleasure of partnering with several local businesses over the past few months and we were thrilled to add Andrew Roby's custom, website design to our portfolio!
When Andrew signed on as a client, he really had his heart set on building an online home that was so much more than a website. He dreamt of a site that would engage his visitors through movement and unexpected design elements à la famed event planner, Mindy Weiss.
This custom Squarespace design was a true labor of love. Bring Andrew's vision to life really challenged our team, pushing us to learn new CSS and HTML to achieve our desired effects.
Our favorite elements of the Andrew Roby Events design are:
1| The use of a fun, festive flat lay to welcome visitors to the site. Our design team wanted Andrew's potential clients to feel as if they were sitting at a table at one of his events - complete with confetti, polaroids and an animated champagne cork.
2| Movement, movement, movement! A variety of both CSS, HTML and Photoshop tricks were used throughout the site to implement the "spinning" of the services icons on the homepage as well as animated GIF's on the home and services pages. Honestly, there was so much code added to this baby...we could go on and on!
3| And, finally, the use of custom markdown to create elegant borders and highlight text blocks throughout the site. We also kind of love the custom event planning questionnaire that we created using a basic CSS tweak.
We hope you’ll hop on over to Andrew Roby Events to experience our design in action!
