New site: ElevationHouseCleaning.com House Cleaning Services for Bend Oregon

One benefit of doing what I do is being able to help out friends with new ideas and business ventures. Often times, a website can make the difference between just having an idea and actually starting a new business.

Elevation House Cleaning Logo

The logo I designed for Anne at Elevation House Cleaning.

Long time friend Anne Boertien had been talking for a while about using her 10 years of extensive housecleaning and house keeping experience to go ahead and start her own business. I happily agreed to do her website and several weeks later we have elevationhousecleaning.com. Anne offers a full range of house cleaning, house keeping and house care taking services.

First we started with a new logo. She wanted a “cute house in front of mountains”. After some back and forth with several design directions and revisions we came up with a logo that we both felt strong about. I opted for solid clean lines with smooth curves. She wanted to use the bright blue color, which I agreed was a good choice for a “clean” feel.

For the website, I started with a wordpress theme I had used before, responsive for mobile of course. It’s not even an option anymore. My design focus was on emphasizing a real bright, clean and light feel. I chose a white background with highlight of the blue as seen in the logo, along with orange and green. A slider up front highlights some nice housecleaning images (which will be custom shot eventually) while introductory text and icons highlight the main focus of the site. I designed a custom background of mountains that mimic the type seen here in the Central Oregon / Bend area, with a collage of “cleaning” icons down at the bottom.

Overall another successful site launch and hopefully business launch as well! If you are in the Central Oregon / Bend area and need house cleaning services, I recommend considering Elevation House Cleaning!
