The Bookery

Used & Rare Bookstore
Project

Information

The Client

The Bookery is a local bookstore with thousands of used books lurking through labyrinth-like aisles. People have wandered into The Bookery to browse books for almost forty years. The original owners, Nancy and Celia still run this unique bookstore with the help of Darin Coelho.

The Challenge

Previously, there was no website for The Bookery so my goal was to make a design that would last a long time. Darin wanted a website that showcased the bookstore itself as well as an online store for rare and featured books to be posted.

Outcome

The website ended up with five pages as well as a custom product page. I wanted the website to have very light colors so I made the color pallet consist of blue and grey colors. Then I went through dozens of fonts but found a headline and body font that went greatly together as if it were a real book. Darin and I are extremely happy with the final result, and I cannot wait to see all the used books that end up on the shop.

Discover More Projects

My goal was to show my potential clients that I can create more than just a website, but a fully functional blog. I took the most basic features out of a basic blog and recreated them with my own design and style.
