Nathan really understood the style we were aiming for, great work!
Quality work. Very fast as usual. Thank you.
High quality work and very responsive to requested changes. Able to take a brief and execute an artistic vision in a modern, relevant manner. Highly recommend working with this designer.

Nice design, like the use of the branding and colours.
How kristiinam started their web page design journey
Who are you known as?
Renegade Tea Estate
Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
We are a unique tea farm in Europe - thriving to save the abandoned tea plantations of Georgia and to start selling pure, organic full leaf tea to direct customers. We plan to have a tea farm with the most personal service on the market, our products will be sold in the online shop.
What industry do you think your business is most related to?
What do you have in mind for the style and theme of the web page?
The website should be rather clean and minimalist, the base colors should be white-black or white-gray + pictures. The aim of the website is to firstly sell the story and then the tea, it is not a typical e-shop for tea.
I would like to have a design for the front page and an example landing page (Georgian tea).
I have made a simple sketch of what I would like to see on the page, this can be accessed here: kristiinamehik.wixsite.com/newpage .Though this should not limit you, if you have some other idea how to present our content.
The front page should focus on the team and our story mainly, since our main communication points are our own story and the story of the abandoned tea industry. We do not want to be another online shop for hundreds of variations of tea, so the homepage should also be different and clearly communicate the story first.
It should include also a menu integrated into the page, not as a traditional menu bar at the top of the page, but it should be as small banners/buttons in the beginning of the page, after the first picture/info. There should be also a banner area to show different offers (for example - when the next batch of production is ready , some new flavors are ready etc.), introduction of our plantations and a blog feed.
The footer should include the menu and contact.
Landing pages: the landing pages should include a visual part, for example a picture in the beginning of the page + text.
What to avoid
Please avoid visuals of usual tea companies, no tea pots, tea leaves as design elements please.
Please read the story at http://www.renegadetea.com to get a better understanding of what we do, this should also give some inspiration for the page :)
The colors we use for the brand are:
main colors: black, white
gray PANTONE P 169-4 C
red PANTONE 18-1438 Marsala
green PANTONE Green Hornet
The red and green we use on the package to indicate green and red tea, I would rather not use these on the homepage, but if the idea is good and looks visually good, then I am also not against it.
