The GroYourBiz website was designed and developed by Monika Szucs. The website was created for Barbara Mowat who is is a trade and international business development specialist, who has helped tens of thousands of businesses over the past 30 years. She is sought after by private companies, organizations, and governments around the world for her expertise and passionate support of fostering entrepreneurship, business development and growth, and creating win-wins through her extensive network.
Creating a Base Template
Before starting I had to design the home page to get a creative direction for the website. This creative direction needed to be approved by Barbara Mowat before I proceeded any further. After it was approved and changes were made I began designing all the pages in Illustrator while sticking to the same style. After I began setting up the pages and adding in the content.
The logic behind this was to make sure that I stuck to the brand guidelines throughout the entire design. I had to make sure that I kept the silhouettes of people, arrows and the colors red, grey and white throughout the website.
I decided to use the WordPress theme Avada because it had the most functionality and flexibility for the website to grow with the company.
In the end I was able to create a fully functional website for the GroYourBiz Advisory Board members.
