This engagement was an opportunity to take a fresh look at the online brand and positioning of Devine Color. For the first time, the product would be available for sale online. Working very closely with Gretchen Schauffler, the founder of Devine Color and the expert marketing team at Valspar, L2 Interactive developed the information architecture, visual style boards and user profiles (personas). Once the designs and interface were approved, we developed the HTML and worked closely with the corporate Valspar IT team in Minneapolis.

 

Gretchen’s Blog A voice for Gretchen Schauffler

For years prior to the redesign, Gretchen had kept a blog for publishing her thoughts and ideas on Devine Color. During our design process, we developed the feature of "Ask g" as a driver for blog content ideas. When we redesigned the blog and set it up with TypePad, we skinned the branding to match the website. As time went by, the Devine Color Facebook page has replaced the blog as their means for daily and weekly content publication.

As an extension to the Devine Color branding and communications efforts, L2 Interactive was engaged to develop a magazine template that could be used within the Valspar organization in order to produce a quarterly magazine. We provided art direction and feedback regarding ways to make the magazine visually appealing and colorful.
