The Vibe   nostalgic, editorial, so-cal, soft, warm

A free-spirited and truly so-cal inspired brand



My favorite thing about the Haine's brand is the subtle elegance it holds. It’s like a whisper pulling you in. The thick to thin serif typeface paired with organic lines and oval shapes makes for a mark that may remind you of a stamp on a love letter. The H is connected by a double armbar to create an elevated feeling while conveying two souls uniting. I created a tonal color palette to go along that is inspired by a walk on the beach, or drive on the winding oceanfront roads. 

— Emily, The Brand Master






Cody and Kendall came to The Cabana because they had an idea of where they wanted their brand to go, but they had no idea how to visually get there. They wanted a soft, casual brand, with a hint of nostalgia and class. We took this idea and ran with it in order to create a brand that was exactly what they desired. The result? A brand that truly makes you feel like you’re driving down the road on a warm summers day, slowly dancing to the music, and daydreaming the day away.

about the brand

The Haines

From ideation to creation

When I land on this website it makes me instantly feel, the warm nostalgic vibes that I would want from my wedding. This speaks so clearly to me and I would book them in a heartbeat if I was in need of their services.

— Austin, The Strategist

web design

Exploring the site feels like flipping through a treasured photo album. I used elements that contributed to the warm and grainy aesthetic and to give visitors a sense of sun-soaked memories and nostalgia. The result is a website that doesn't just showcase The Haines’ photography and videography, but invites visitors into a nastolgic-feeling California dream.

our process in 4 steps

how we pamper your brand





  • Jump on a Discovery Call so I can find out where you are in your business and where you want to go.

Step 1

  • You’ll fill in an in-depth questionnaire that gets into all the nitty-gritty details and foundations of your brand. 
  • We’ll do a creative strategy call with you and our brand master Emily. Together, we’ll dive deeper into your business vision

Austin Strategizes

  • We start with a creative strategy call to discuss your vision, ideal client and inspiration. I’ll then create a mood and vision board for you to review. 

Step 2

  • After you’ve signed off on your mood and vision board, I build your logo and identity. You’ll receive a full walk through video on your new branding. 
  • Once approved, I’ll create your website homepage. You’ll see your new brand in action, and get a sense of how your new website will look and feel.

  • Your copy usually begins just after you’ve signed off your mood board. We’ll get on a Zoom call and start unpacking your questionnaire

Step 3

  • My job is to tell your story and craft a brand tone of voice. I’ll ask questions that start forming a narrative so your website copy sounds authentic to you. 
  • After receiving the first draft and providing feedback, I edit and finesse your copy. Once you love your copy and sign off on it, Alice incorporates it into your website!
