Shaneika Aguilar is a narrative and documentary filmmaker and photographer based in Honolulu, Hawaii. She has always had a passion for storytelling, which she followed later in life by going to film school. Shaneika earned her B.A. from the Academy for Creative Media at the University of Hawaii at Manoa. Her cinematography work was the focal point of what she wanted to highlight in her portfolio and asked Ellemsee Media to redesign her website with these ideas in mind.
The goal was to create a functional website while showcasing Shaneika’s cinematography projects, as well as pairing it with unique branding that exemplifies her style. The website is clean, easy to use and allows potential clientele to see how passionate Shaneika is about what she does. The color palette we chose for her brand is inspired by the distinctive soft color grading she uses throughout her projects.
Shaneika’s logo uses a delicate handwritten style paired with a rose that was based on a tattoo she has. The understated and feminine color grading can be seen from these shots of her reel.
Shaneika’s website is a perfect example of bringing two creative minds together and making a beautiful project. For anyone in the creative industry, showcasing work in a simple, intuitive way is paramount. She came to us with a vision and bringing it to life was a no brainer.
