Tobey Nelson Events + Design

All the way up on Whidbey Island there’s this absolute genius of a floral designer named Tobey Nelson.  Formerly Vases Wild, Tobey changed her business name in 2016 to user her own name and better reflect that she’s also a top-notch event designer and wedding planner.

As part of a rebranding effort, Tobey worked with a local design duo to come up with two new logo iterations – one featuring a backdrop of this explosion of flowers and floral textures which perfectly suits her own exuberant style of floral design:


I designed the website around that, which is exactly what we did in 2014 with the previous iteration of, where Tobey had a logo designed and we just took it from there.  This time, however, the site is much more sophisticated and sleek.  Its most important feature is the gallery section.

Even thumbnail grid for the main gallery page, with titles of individual galleries, allowing the viewer to immediately see the breadth of Tobey’s work:


Individual galleries use jQuery masonry for that fabulous tiled layout we all love so much these days:
