The River Forest Manor & Marina needed to communicate a variety of messages to their diverse audiences. The first priority was weddings at the historic manor, which drove much of the content, and drove the site’s design to be elegant, historic and beautiful. I developed a content strategy that was wedding and event focused. A unique gallery feature makes it easy to upload new images, so brides can be inspired to imagine their dream wedding there.
Research, Sitemap, Identity, Branding, Wireframes and Design Collaboration
Three sitemap options were thought about and presented. The three sitemap themes include: Wedding Focused, Offerings Focused and a General Focus
Many wireframe options were thought about and presented. The wireframes explored different navigation locations and content arrangement.
Colors and fonts were thought about. Ideas came from the restored wood work, charming elegance, and ocean landscape.
