Rose City Yarn Crawl
Graphics | UX | Web
The Rose City Yarn Crawl has been a local Portland experience for almost a decade. It is a vibrant celebration by and for local knitting and crocheting enthusiasts. The RCYC's brand is quirky, enthusiastc, and very much patterned around a tight-knit community for Portland's fiber enthusiasts. As a result, their website design needed a quick loading UI for both its admin and users to help navigate the RCYC's sites and events. This website design mixes a clean and open-feeling environment with squiggle lines of bright blues in order to capture the playful nature of the local knitting stores and bubbly busy owners involved in the events. The design of the site is neat and places importance more on the patterns being sold at each location, the events at each location and how to participate in the Rose City Yarn Crawl. In a collaborative effort with Sirius Media LLC, Avocational Design helped design wire frames, visual design proofs, and site maps that lead to a website that reflects the unwavering enthusiasm of the Rose City's crafty knitting experience that is Rose City Yarn Crawl.
