Overview: How we helped an African safari company embark on an online adventure

The challenge + the solution
Despite the company's experience and expertise, Hemingways had no company website. Additionally, an outdated brand presence was impeding Hemingway's ability to position itself as a true industry leader. Time for a brand refresh.
We were brought onboard to create the company's new logo, then design and develop first official Hemingways website.
The new logo design was completed first:
A beautiful website design, a refreshed brand
Using East African sunset and landscape photography as inspiration, we delivered a web design that differentiates Hemingways from its competitors and plays off the company's unique character and culture through textures, images, and a strategic use of color.
