Logo

Once the creative tone was set, I worked on a logo that would fall into the ‘Modern Vintage’ aesthetic. Something not too feminine or masculine, too dated or too trendy.

I chose a serif font that was reminiscent of the classics, but with a modern twist. Rose City was stylized as one word to bring everything togethat and an alternate version was also created for times the stacked logo won’t work

 

Identity

Light, neutral colors were chosen to keep within a classic modern aesthetic with a pop of color for CTA’s and other items that need to grab attention.

 

Web Design

I used a mobile first approach when doing the mockup, so opted for a centered logo with search on the left and account links on the right. This would scale seamlessly to mobile and would not confuse the user if they switch devices.  Full-width imagery is used to showcase products and style inspirations.

 

Web Development

The default Magento responsive theme was used as the base them since it followed most ecommerce best practices for layout, user flow, and design. I then tweaked it and altered the design to match the design/style that I created.

The website scales fluidly between mobile, tablet, and deskop.
