Lawrence Coates Web Branding by Nikkita.Co | http://nikkita.co
I loved working with Nikkita Cohoon on my website. She took the time to dialogue with me about the look and feel I wanted for the site, and then shared mockups with me along the way, so that the final product met and exceeded my expectations. She also helped guide me through the process of changing my domain name to a new web hosting service. She offered a wonderful combination of creativity and practicality.

Since the site has been launched, it has served as a site for all news about my work and activities, and it has proven especially useful when I am seeking new venues to present my work. When I make contact with a bookstore or other venue, I am able to point to my website, and they find a beautiful and professional-looking site that represents my work in the best possible light. I cannot recommend Nikkita Cohoon highly enough.

About the project: Lawrence Coates is a published novelist and fiction writer whose work prominently features place, with his most recent novel focusing specifically on an area in the California hills. I created new web branding collateral and a new web design to reflect the themes of his latest novel he was going on tour to promote, and to provide an overall professional feel with pages for each book he’s published, as well as discussion guides, event information, a news section, and a blog. The writer wanted an elegiac and elegant feel, with a strong first impression, which we created through a full-window landing section with hidden navigation until scroll.
