Phase 1: decide on creative style
My client, a Reiki Master, saw my celestial design (Mind/Body) and asked me to design her something with a watery, painterly, hand-made and relaxed feeling, In our 1st phase, I presented mood boards with 4 choices of imagery and font styles. My client liked styles that featured touches of gold, and blues with to enhance the luxury feeling of self care and water. We went on to create wireframes and the eventual website which she took over in 2021 seen in Phase 2 below.
