A quick holding page that appeared to transform into something a little more flamboyant than expected. For Moonshine PR
Hopefully Emily doesn’t beat me to death when she sees what I’ve done to her website. I very nearly animated it in flash but fortunately (for you and her) time is short tonight.

Sometimes it’s good to experiment and be a little intentionally difficult. Emily had the joy of being a test subject. It’s not the most challenging or original design ever but I liked the idea of a three column design with the navigation in the middle*. I think it works ok because the left column is very mimimal.
(The blackbird is just a filler photo while we choose the appropriate image, we’re probably going with nice nature/inspiring nice things so it was an appropriate holding image).
We’ve updated it a little to make it a bit more accessible, the contrast between the background and the body copy was a little low so we’re trying a white content background. Also removed the “Recent Projects” bit from the footer and replaced with a selection of logos from associate businesses (proper logos to come).
* I make no claims to originality here, I’m sure this has been tried before.
Not entirely finalised but I doubt we are going to for for any more changes prior to the printing. These are the first two business cards I’ve designed, and really the first two proper logos. I may post a breakdown of the process involved in each if time allows. I’m pretty happy with the Moonshine PR logo and cards, although we went through far too many variants to get to this stage (entirely my fault). I can’t work out if I’m entirely happy with the Shinytastic cards, I find it very difficult to do things for myself/my own business. I think I achieved the desired end (intentionally over the top silliness).
