This cosy web design was one for ’t Verwende Nest, a dog hotel and grooming salon located in Poperinge. Who was looking for a functional, simple, responsive website with a focus on an appropriate layout and a unique atmosphere. So that without saying a word you know what the business stands for.
The client’s request was a website you come to and immediately feel at home and safe. And feature words were Warmth, Organic, Cosiness and of course Love for animals.
The web does not exactly have a reputation for being a warm, organic and cosy place. Consequently, modern web design can often be kill, cold and sleek.
At Pixili, however, we focus more on atmosphere and client demand than on what is trendy at the time. This way, we create brands that are timeless and fit the client’s letter.
A beautiful, organic look with warm elements and a reference to dogs.
We started looking for a way to create atmosphere. We found that using organic elements creates a warm atmosphere.
Like a handwritten font, but these can make them less readable in long texts. For that reason, we used them sparingly.
Moreover, we noticed that they go very well with a monospaced font, which is mainly known from typewriters and is extremely readable.
The next step was to choose colours that were organic, and sometimes you don’t have to search long for and particular colour palette. Because the colour palette is simply already in the name. So I chose a range of brown and beige tones that would be found in a nest.
Pixili does Web design in Poperinge but also offers a full range of digital, branding and 3D services. Plus we have our own product line Pixipop.
