Let the branding be the hero

The clear brand guidelines enabled us to create a site with a strong sense of purpose and personality, without pulling focus from the products. 

Crafted copy tells the story of the brand in their own unique voice, and the dedication to detail throughout the site puts you in the mindset of the founder. The subtle balance of lifestyle and commerce work hand in hand, and incidental illustrations add a human touch to the minimalistic UI.

The little details

We collaborated with an illustrator who created a suite of hand-drawn black and white drawings that help give the site a human touch.

Interactive and playful.

We took their stunning product photography and brought it up a level. Using subtle animations, we created an immersive experience for the user, which provides a teaser of the homeware in use.

Serving up fresh content

We created a journal page that showcases some of the founder's favourite recipes, and inspiring articles about food. Their core belief is that the table is the heart of the home. Monoware help you lay a table for life.

Modern aesthetic

We were lucky enough to work with stunning lifestyle images which really communicate the brand’s story and values. Mixed sets and regular sets show the versatility of the range, and hover images add a little pop of colour to contrast the muted palette of the UI.
