Chileno Valley Ranch

Chileno Valley Ranch needed a wedding venue specific site to separate their bridal clientele from their beef and lamb sales online. I started this project on site, walking the property with owner Sally gale to a feel for the right vernacular to capture what they have. I worked in pen and ink only from the start, creating dozens of drawings of roses, apples, dragonflies and other details I'd seen on my visit. I created groupings of photos with similar color and feel pulled from hundreds of images submitted by the client for consideration and I laid the site out much how I would a wedding invitation. Treating the type and hierarchy as if it were going to be printed, every space, every character was considered.
