PROJECTS: Site Audit, Style Guide
MY ROLE: Visual Design


Site Audit and Style Guide

Challenge: As an emerging start-up, Arivale was striving to hone in on their brand and establish visual consistency across varying mediums. I was enlisted to audit their site and and make recommendations for improvements without requiring a complete re-design.

Process: I analyzed the Arivale website and created a list of actionable recommendations to improve usability and create visual consistency across platforms. I worked with the Content Manager to design a style guide that would not only aid in the implementation of my recommendations, but would provide clear standards for future designers, developers, and writers.

Outcome: My recommendations provided clear guidance for improvements to the Arivale website without requiring a complete re-design. 


Tara helped us identify and implement small changes that made a huge difference in our site's aesthetic and usability. She also provided invaluable guidence in building a comprehensive style guide from scratch. The result truly reflects our brand's personality.
