The challenge of the CRL website design was to appeal to his audience gymnasts, parents, and club coaches. The design needed to be fun and inviting while also being sophisticated and professional.
The addition of black to the color palette gives the design a more high-level look along with the choice to use black and white photos throughout the site. Banner photos are filtered in brand colors to incorporate gymnastic imagery while keeping the text overlay legible.
Headings maintain the CRL logo font to keep brand consistency and site-wide animation takes the browsing experience to the next level.
