Babe with a Blade in Hewlett, Long Island, NY launched this summer to much fanfare and amazing growth. The chic semi-permanent makeup boutique provides a range of premium services in a luxurious setting, including microblading, powder brows, Xtreme Lashes, eyebrow shading, teeth whitening, and more.
Owner Nicole DaCosta-Finocchio has dubbed her flawlessly decorated shop “The Babe Cave” and her immensely loyal clients travel from far and wide to receive her treatments and take selfies in front of a pink flower wall which boasts the brand’s logo.
The logo, brand colors, typography, and website were created by Olive Branch Digital’s lead designer Fenton Joseph, in partnership with DaCosta-Finocchio. “This has been probably my favorite branding project ever.” says Joseph.
“When you have a client who is willing to give you creative control and trust you with the wellbeing of their business, it’s not only inspiring and humbling, but also creates a winning scenario for all parties.” he continues. “I know what is at stake and I always work hard to overdeliver. I am so happy that Nicole is so excited about her brand and website. The success of her online marketing campaigns which heavily leverage her brand assets, and the subsequent success of the business shows how important solid branding and design really are.”

Fonts make or break a webpage. Imagine a webpage with nothing but words and a white background (no beautiful images to save the day). If the font is unattractive and unbalanced, then the entire page is going to be a turnoff. Yikes!
A few of these fonts certainly get used in my own projects, and they’re pretty popular around the internet in general. I love that Avenir is number one because, well, it’s pretty awesome and I use it a lot. Proxima Nova (#12) is a paid font who’s free alternative (Montserrat) I happen to actually prefer!
Take time to learn the different styles of fonts available to you and how you should employ them based on the project needs. You can explore fonts using websites like dafont.com, Adobe Fonts, and of course Google Fonts. DaFont offers many free fonts, Adobe Fonts requires a subscription to their service, and Google Fonts are installed via embeddable code or CSS. So there is something for every level of development expertise. It’s worth noting that Google Fonts are integrated in many web builders at no extra cost.
So check out this list from Wix and let me know which are you favourite fonts!
