My Process and Insight

MOODBOARD

I put together a mood board based on some latest web design trends.

COLORS AND FONTS

I chose therapeutic and soothing colors for Rosarie's brand.

cornsilk

#fefae0

green

#4f8ac7

burlywood

#d4a373

olive

brown

I used Fahkwang for custom headings and Martel Sans for smaller headings and the body text.

Fahkwang

Designed by Cadson Demak, Fahkwang is a Thai and Latin san serif family which features a high contrast. It has been inspired by headlines in old Thai newspapers.

The spectacle before us was indeed sublime.

Martel Sans

Designed by Dan Reynolds, Martel Sans is designed for typesetting immersive documents. It may be be used to set long passages of text in languages that are written in the Devanagari script, including Hindi, Marathi, Nepali, Sanskrit, and others.

The spectacle before us was indeed sublime.

STOCK PHOTOGRAPHY

Rosari described her brand personality as calm and serene, which I used as the anchor for picking beautiful pictures. I picked out photos, nature, and serene stuff. We used images that accurately and realistically reflected Rosari's audience.

THE WEBSITE

Rosari's website needed the following pages:

  • Home
  • About
  • Appointments
  • Blog
  • FAQ
  • Contact

WIREFRAMES

I started with wireframing all the pages for Rosari’s website.

DESIGNS

These were the designs that were created for the website.

Challenges & Solutions

Here are some of the challenges that I faced while designing for Rosari and how I approached solving them.

CHallenge #1

Rosari wanted to integrate her website with an external Booking Platform so that her patients can book appointments online.

I chose simplybook.me as the booking platform and it truly worked out great for Rosari. Her patients are now able to book online consultations with her.

CHallenge #2

Rosari wanted to showcase her book, Ireland's Hidden Medicine on her website and also integrate the checkout with Shopify. She also wanted to put up a CTA to sell her book on Amazon.

I created a beautiful section to showcase Rosari's book and integrated it with a Shopify Buy Button. I also placed a CTA to buy the book via Amazon.

The Results

Rosari is very pleased with her new website. Her website creates the awareness that she needs to have an impact on her target audience.

Confidence

Rosari loves her new website and feels it's a very effective tool to create awareness of who she is and what services she provides. She is now able to focus on maintaining relationships with her patients and treating them.

Patient satisfastiction

Rosari's website helps her patients book Online and In-person appointments  so that she can meet with them and provide workable and useful solutions to them.

New Clients

Because of her new website, Rosari is busy with her growing number of patients and bookings and this makes her happy and satisfied with her profession.
