Homefront Vintage - photography, website design & branding
Sara, aka ‘the map lady’ from Home Front Vintage got in touch looking for some new shots of her unique products and a revamp of both her website and logo, which had started to show their age. After a successful product shoot with Yeshen, there were plenty of fantastic images to populate the new website with. For the new website, Sara was looking for a cleaner modern aesthetic whilst maintaining a British heritage look and feel. Sara wanted to keep the essence of the existing logo, as she had existing signage and other promotional pieces that would have made it costly for a drastic change.
Tash worked with the base of the old logo, changing the fonts, as well as tweaking the layout and colour, to give it a modern makeover. For the website styling, Tash drew upon the colours of the logo, adding custom buttons and headings across the site. We all had a great time integrating some hidden messages into the site. This included a morse code header at the top, as well as a secret button featuring a morse code sound recording for enthusiasts to decipher. Not to mention the fantastic vintage semaphore cards that Sara had, which Tash couldn’t help but make move and turn into a GIF! Overall the unique touches really helped further the stories that lie within each of Sara’s products, as well as give users a fun and interactive experience whilst browsing the site.

"Working with Yesh and Tash was brilliant. From the first time I contacted Yeshen and we spoke about my thoughts for the new website, through working with them both on the layout and design, to trouble-shooting the final site I always felt like they both 'got' my brand and understood what I wanted - even when I couldn't articulate it! Tash has done an amazing job of refreshing my logo and I love the custom buttons and artwork on the site. The photographs from Yeshen are in keeping with the feel of the brand and I love they way he has captured the products - they look amazing on the website and the press love them, they have already been featured in a national magazine. As well as both being incredibly talented they were also a joy to work with, very professional - everything was delivered on time and when they said it would be and my questions were answered quickly so I always felt I knew where we were with the project. I would definitely work with them both again and would recommend their work to any designer-maker who wants photographs, website or branding which will stand out from the crowd. Thank you."
