Huizinga Di Toppa Coles & Layton is a law office based out of Edmonton, Alberta that provides services for Family Law, Real Estate, Wills and Estates, Personal Injury and Corporate Commercial matters.

A well established law office, I was tasked with setting up their first website to help improve their online search engine rankings and to make it easier for existing and potential new clients to get information on the law firm and the services they offer. As such this website was designed to be a high quality, mobile friendly user experience with an increased focus on keyword density, sitemaps, and indexing.

From a design aesthetic, I wanted to provide a clean, professional yet personable website design. Using the clients existing branding and colour guidelines I built a theme that speaks to potential clients about the firms, professionalism, integrity and experience.

To finish this project I had to complete the following:

  • Design website templates and mockups for client approval.
  • Setup and install hosting service and domains.
  • Install WordPress content management system.
  • Design and develop mobile responsive WordPress theme using client branding standards.
  • Setting up and managing Google Analytics, Search Console and Tag Manager.
  • Keyword research and implementation.
  • Troubleshooting issues and optimizing various website functions.

TLC 4 PAWS is a locally licensed, affordable, professional pet care service in the City of Edmonton with a growing client base. Problem was they had no existing online presence other than through Facebook, so they approached me about designing a mobile friendly website to take online bookings and engage their clients online in addition to updating their brand identity to give them a fresh and fun new look.

For this project I started with the logo design by creating a simple four paw, icon style design, with a fun and bold font for their company name and a tetrad colour palette using the client’s favorite colour orange as the base. Using the underscores.me, I created a WordPress theme that is mobile friendly, informative user friendly. Features included are a blog page, booking calendar, client reviews page. In addition to this I put a focus on integrating their social media accounts (Facebook & Instagram) along with SEO optimization to help improve their online presence.

For this project I was tasked with completing the following:

  • Design logo templates, colour palette and final draft for client approval.
  • Design website templates and mockups for client approval.
  • Setup and install hosting service and domains.
  • Install WordPress content management system.
  • Design and develop mobile responsive WordPress theme using client branding standards.
  • Setting up and managing Google Analytics, Search Console and Tag Manager.
  • Troubleshooting issues and optimizing various website functions.

As you can see the results are an easily recognizable, print friendly logo and brand aesthetic with a matching WordPress theme that is mobile friendly, informative and showcases the clients love for animals. The success of this project lead me to complete further additional branding work for this client including completing business cards and a pricing guide.
