BlackBean Design is a boutique graphic design company based in Kelowna, BC. Creative Director Laura Norup-Boyer has extensive marketing and design experience, working internationally with large events management companies, marketing agencies and consultants in Hong Kong and Shanghai. Her talent, passion, and professionalism are reflected in the calibre of her work and the satisfaction of her customers. Twirling Umbrellas was commissioned to develop a custom responsive website for the brand in 2017.
We were selected through a private process to design her website and refine her logo. Her brand concept is based on the four ink colours used in printing: cyan, magenta, yellow, and key, or black (CMYK). When the first three colours are combined, they create black. We played off that concept, creating translucent beans that overlap to produce her logo when the page is scrolled. Combined with a beautifully minimalist design utilizing plenty of white space, its one of our favourite website designs.
