The past few months I’ve been working with Bad Billy Beard. A beautiful little collection of beard care products.
I’ve never really been into beard care that much but, when I started doing work on Mike’s website we realized pretty quickly that the product photos could be improved. I’d bought that little product photography studio a while back and he mailed me the products.
I did try the beard oil and the original balm. That stuff feels great and smells nice too.
The website was in need of an entire overhaul. I wanted to get his chosen font (ITC Viner) on the headings to match the imagery … and just some classic red and black makes it look nice.
The entire theme is built from the ground up, using a skeleton from underscores and a herd of beautiful css.
In many of the iterations I used a background on the site but, I was looking at it a few weeks ago (after running through some e-commerce tutorial thing) and realized that it actually just took away from the contrast of the buttons and, focus away from the product offerings. So I’ve since trashed that. I’m at a point now that I can’t think of what more to improve. I pride myself on helping people present their websites and products.
