Kalona Super Natural
Kalona Super Natural full website re-design. When Kalona contacted us for this project I was asked to create a responsive website that keeps to their strict design guidelines for fonts colors and style. They needed a set up so that their staff could easily manage without having to know how to code. This is a fun and colorful design that features integrated social media feed, slider and testimonials section and is fully responsive.
Items that needed to be addressed:
The original WordPress setup did not work in it’s entirety. For example. blog posts would not show up on the feed or archives of the site. There were a lot of items that were detached from the original WordPress installation, meaning that WordPress was not being used at it’s full potential.
The site was dated in that it was not responsive and did not have a fast loading time. Something that is critical for SEO as well as for the end user.
Kalona has strict guidelines on their branding in which requires careful thought and consideration during the design process. They loved the current layout that they had for their site and wanted a replicated but responsive version of their site, with only minor changes to the look of the website. I created a demo site for review so that revisions and all aspects could be seen live without affecting the main website. Then I merged and replaced the live site with the new design.
The client also requested a high page speed score. I completed the project and handed it over to the client with an A speed ranking.
A clean coded, fast, beautiful, fun design with great a UX.
All content is properly categorized and easy to maintain as well as to manipulate and modify. Best of all the site is responsive and carries over all the features they need such as a newsletter, store, and an integrated featured social media section.
