For the brand, Lotus wanted something fresh and instantly recognizable that appealed to a wide range of clientele. A warm color scheme was selected to enhance the appeal of food photography, with gold, white, and gray as the primary colors.
An alternative color palette with a rose pink, white, and gray palette was also defined for use in select printed materials.
For the website design, I avoided an overtly coastal feel, as this is fairly overused in Hawaii-based brands. We wanted something different, and opted to focus the visuals on appetizing food selections. The result is a foodie’s dream with a high-end appeal.
As catering and wedding-centric services in Maui are extremely competitive, SEO and search engine visibility were primary factors for the website. I provided copywriting and verbiage based on targeted keyword and phrases to boost ranking, as well as formulated content to maximize organic exposure.
I designed Lotus’ business cards with the brand palette of golden yellow, white, and gray color palette. The standard cards are double-sided with a golden lotus floral motif on the back side, and pertinent contact info on the front side. I also designed a higher-end card with painted gold edges and gold foil designs. The high-end card features a different lotus motif on the back, with pertinent contact info on the front.
The homepage includes a fullscreen slider with parallax and video features, meant to grab the viewers attention.
