This site was brought to us with a single request “Elegance through simplicity”, and we built everything from there. Family Smiles At The Glen is a dental practice in Glenview, IL with a unique name and an open and welcoming atmosphere to its clientele. We wanted the website to represent this dental practice in a way that it deserved, and we think we’ve succeeded.
Overview Of The Design
The basis of the design was a beautiful company logo that was integral in our color choices for the website. The webpage was meant to be simple, so we ensured that the home page wasn’t overloaded with links or imagery while still maintaining a substantial amount of information in an easily digestible format.
Use Of Colors
Simplicity and elegance don’t require garish colors or complex designs to capture the eye, they can do it through eye-catching contrasts and insightful planning. The foundation of the Family Smiles At The Glen website are black, grey, and white, a rainbow in monochrome that lends itself perfectly to the atmosphere we were looking to create.
• Contrast – Black is a neutral color used in website design to lend an air of sophistication and elegance, while white brings thoughts of clean white teeth with the grey adds a formal quality to the site.
• Action Oriented – The use of grey to highlight the action buttons on the site provides a bright contrast to draw attention to them and encourage viewers to click through.
• Community Ties – Images of the business’s location and the area surrounding it serve to tie the website to the community by providing familiar sights for its visitors.
