When Circle S Ranch of Lawrence KS came to me, they felt as though their branding didn't really represent their client base. While wanting to remain attractive as an historical buffalo ranch, and secluded destination for visitors, they hoped to showcase their venue as a high-end and beautiful location for weddings and receptions.
Our first order of business was to take their logo and give it an elegant but rustic makeover, and create different yet consistent versions for varying formats.
For the website, my approach was to simplify the navigation, and give the design an airy and somewhat romantic aesthetic and incorporate images of the ranch in use.
The little icons in the page footer are intended to give web visitors something fun to interact with.
