We officially welcome one of the newest Salty brands, DialDoodle! The mastermind behind this phone service startup, Laura Reynolds, wanted a look that was fresh, simple and structured. The colors remain fairly neutral with a nice pop of orange. We aimed to nail the look of what some might call an "old school phone", and also infused a little bit of fun in this streamlined look with a little bit of personality inside the doodle. Take a look at the full brand below and let us know what you think!
Salty's got another Squarespace gem for you and we're all hopped-up! This time we worked with Down the Road Brewery to give them a website experience that looked slick, was mobile friendly and built on a platform that made constant updates a breeze. All things that we know are right up Squarespace's alley.
I chose the Foster template and leveraged the brewery's custom artwork to showcase some beautiful page headers. The site also boasts the event calendar feature to keep everyone in the loop on future events, MailChimp integration and a little bit of custom CSS for some fine tuning. With the help of customized icon design, the website reflects DTR's well established brand and showcases more of what they are all about; fresh, local and inspired craft beer.
I was particularly excited about the recent update announcement from the mothership regarding the new promotional pop ups. This allowed us to include the required age verification form upon a visitors initial site load. Another fun feature was the third party store locator I integrated in order for the brewery fans to find the nearest possible DTR fix based on a straightforward and easy to use location search.

We recently debuted the fantastic new brand for Prevention Pantry Nutrition. Working with Jillian was such a treat...but a healthy one! We covered all of our bases, from a complete brand design, social media graphics to a customized Squarespace website.
The brand design reflects a natural rustic vibe, with hints of greenery and citrus. With this fresh new look we came up with, Jillian will be able to take her blog to the streets and both inspire and empower healthy and mindful eaters with her nutrition expertise and recipe prowess.
Her Squarespace website was a fun challenge to craft. I used the Bryant template to lay the foundation for a clever blogging platform. With the use of one blog and carefully tagging several categories, we harnessed the power of her content and created an entire Recipe Box section. This separate page filters out a summary of specifically tagged posts, allowing users to easily view and search for recipes. With some custom HTML and CSS as well as specially designed graphics, the online home for Prevention Pantry has a unique look for many recipes to come.

Salty is so excited to debut the brand design and Squarespace website for The Zen Den! Local to our very own studio, this farm to blender juice bar is going to change the way you get your protein shakes and healthy smoothie fix! It's perpetually exciting to work with fellow small businesses, but even sweeter when that business is making an impact on my very own community.
The Zen Den brand design was a fun one and reflects a fresh, natural and modern look, while making sure to echo the general idea of the company for an instant visual connection. The guidelines set us up to also create some visually appealing social media graphics to gear up for the big store launch.
Online ordering for pickup was an important feature for The Zen Den, and Squarespace was the perfect solution! With a beautiful ChowNow integration, we used the single page concept of the Pacific Template for the basis of this website design. I wrote some custom CSS and created additional graphic elements which you can find scattered throughout the site. This all helps to better reflect the Zen Den brand and present a really fun website experience.
If you're in the area and looking for a refreshing treat, head over to The Zen Den. Better yet, place your order online ahead of time thanks to a mobile friendly website with ChowNow integration.
Back in 2009, I was on the hunt for a new car. I love bells and whistles, but auto package options became slightly overwhelming as I travelled lot to lot for my next set of wheels. You begin to hem and haw over this feature or that upgrade, hashing out value versus dollars and cents (or is it sense...). I test drove some Acuras and fell in love. Not only with the ride quality and the car itself, but with how simple the packages and options were. There was simply "with the technology package" and "without the technology package" and with that I was sold. Now, of course I wanted the technology package, but what I loved was the clarity. What's better than simple, straightforward packaging and pricing? Nothing.
