THERE’S HIDDEN POWER IN THE WEB DESIGN PROCESS

Not to brag or anything, but the most common feedback I get from my clients is that my process is fun. It’s not because I goof around or anything, but because I work hard to educate you along the way. The web design process doesn’t have to be stressful and overwhelming; in fact, it can be empowering and help you get clarity about who you are and where you want to be.

THE LATEST LAUNCH

BlackHer founders Jocelyn Harmon and Angela Dorn are on a mission to advance the personal, economic, and political power of Black women, and it was my great honor to help them get off to a great start with a website design, brand guide, business cards & an eBook. 

I set out to achieve several goals with the creative direction:

 

  1. Make their stories the hero
  2. Make a bold first impression
  3. Set the tone using typography & photography
  4. Make it personal 
  5. Make it easy to maintain brand consistency 

You don’t always need a smorgasbord of colors to make a strong impact. For BlackHer, I chose to use one primary “power color.” The rest is black and white with one contrasting call to action colortelling a color story that’s both bold and sophisticated.

I carried that story through with the typographyusing big bold headlines and a more traditional font for the text, making it easy for the reader to really dig in and focus on the story. A carefully-chosen handwriting font is used as an accent to give it a personal feel.

Taughnee captured the essence of the BlackHer brand, which is all about the showcasing Black women and highlighting our ambition, leadership, and accomplishment.  And working with her is incredibly empowering. Taughnee is more than a website designer and strategist she is a BlackHer ally and friend.

Redesigns THAT GOT results

Website Design for Kids Clothing Company

From Confusing + Inconsistent to 
Easy-to-use, Branded Sales Machine

The Rain or Shine Kids website had major usability and design problems that were impacting sales.

In the initial audit, I identified the problems that were affecting conversions and created a plan to improve the users’ shopping experience.

The Result: Intuitive product categories and navigation, a design that reflects their cheerful, young, and modern brand, fast to load, and a new and easy-to-manage e-commerce system.

Happily, RoSK was purchased by a Japanese company after the redesign. A smashing result! 

“The Rain or Shine Kids website was in desperate need of a makeover that reflected our fun brand, and to make us look like a serious contender in the marketplace. I knew Taughnee was the perfect person to help; she was extremely knowledgable and gave us just the right guidance. RoSK has sold to a company in Japan, and I credit the website design for conveying the right message to the online world. When I start my next company, I will work with Endeavor Creative again!”

Website Design for Executive Search Firm

From Boring + Broken to
Optimized and Customer-focused

While the AES website looked fine, it had massive technical performance problems. And, their content was filled with stodgy “business-speak” that nobody enjoys reading.

We started by getting clear about their value and position in the market, then I helped them re-write their content in more user-focused language. Next was modernizing their visual design and improving site performance — shaving off a whopping 30+ seconds in page load speed.

The Result: Since launch, AES has dominated local search results; traffic and engagement has doubled, and rather than bouncing off the site before it even loads, visitors are now taking the actions AES wants them to. 

“Endeavor Creative supports a unique market in that Taughnee has the ability to be strategic, in a way many other designers struggle. Furthermore, her ego stays in check when the client has input that may not necessarily be “best practice,” while at the same time making sure the final product is polished and professional. The video tutorials help the handoff process tremendously, and the fact that they are custom to the client site is above and beyond.” Paula Bradison
