Fieldstone Supplies Website Design

Do you ever design something that you think is on the verge of being Gaudy? Well, that is what I thought as I was designing this site. The client, John Wilder’s Fieldstone Supplies is a landscape designer in New Hampshire.

The thing I struggle with at times with this kind of project is this: The client wants the site to look very tangible, like you can touch it. This design in particular was made to deliberately look like something the client would actually build. In fact, all the images on the site come from their work, up to and including the tiled stacked stone background image.

When it was all said and done I really liked the design. It may skate dangerously close to being gaudy in my opinion, but maybe that’s why I like it?
