My First Wix Website
I’m happy to announce two things:
The launch of MOXFIVE and their new sparkly brand and website
My first Wix website!
I’m especially excited about number two. When MOXFIVE contacted me about a website design, they mentioned they’d prefer it be designed using the Wix platform. Now, knowing absolutely nothing about Wix, except that it’s a website building platform, I hesitated. They came to me through a mutual contact and I was excited at the opportunity to design for them and I always want to be transparent; I replied saying that I was so happy to help but to be honest, I have ZERO experience with Wix. I went on to say that I only had experience using Squarespace and ShowIt5 platforms and it didn’t seem to sway them a bit. They said that if I was confident in Squarespace, they were confident in me. Haha! True story.
So, with a signed contract and retainer deposit, I spent one full weekend watching every YouTube tutorial on How To Build a Wix Website that I could find. I devoured every bit of information and even watched a few of them twice. I was as ready as I’d ever be.
Turns out Wix is suuuuuuper easy. Such a simple interface with great features and lots of creative control. One thing I especially loved about it was the ability to completely alter the mobile design without it affecting the desktop design in any way! To be fair, ShowIt5 has this ability, too.
I think the most challenging part was that we had zero photos to work with. Only the logo, brand colors and icons. A bit of animation in some key spots helps a lot with appeal and I added some abstract images behind blocks of color to help with visual interest. They asked for “a simple, clean website” and I’d say we delivered.
In addition to a website design, they also needed some alterations to their logo (not designed by me), iconography and a quick brand guide that they could reference and distribute to other vendors. Check out some of that work below.
