Karin McElhatton and Shelley Cook from Studio Animal Services in Castaic, CA needed a new animals website. Studio Animal Services provides top-notch trained animals and coordination services for motion pictures, commercials, television, web, and print work! I went with teal to represent a calm and joyful feeling for animals and pets. Teal also works great on both white and black backgrounds. The display font is Comfortaa by Johan Aakerlund, a rounded, geometric, sans-serif typeface intended for use at large sizes. The body font is Oxygen by Vernon Adams, which works well in all graphical user interfaces, desktops and devices.
For the home page, I displayed 3 huge rotating animal images with taglines to reinforce the brand. I then placed the phone number and about text. I listed the services with eye-catching icons that Studio Animals provides. I embedded 3 commercial videos to show off their work. I ended the page with more detailed information about SAS.
I created a section that uses a simple grid-system for animal pictures. Here is the big dogs page.
Here is the medium dogs page.
Here is the small dogs page.
Here is the cats page.
On the staff page, I added a picture of the Studio Animal Services ranch. I listed all of their in-house trainers, freelance trainers, intern trainers, support staff, animal care/kennel team and owners. I also added pictures for a nice visual look.
For the credits page, I showed off 9 of their big clients, followed by all of feature credits, television credits and advertising credits.
For the contact page, I listed the address, email, phone number and contact form. The contact form submissions show up on their monthly reports, and even gives the city of the sender. I ended with a huge, interactive Google Map of their location.
To wrap things up, I tested the site on all devices to make sure everything looked perfect and functioned correctly.
Karin and Shelley loved the new website and its functionality on mobile devices. The new site has already gotten new customers and will continue to grow the company. I continue to maintain the website, coding, hosting, graphics and organic Google search rankings while providing updates when needed.
"Great prices, quick to make any changes or additions." - Karin
