Shaped by Water

Maris Pearl launches new website

Wednesday, July 27, 2022


Maris Pearl uses naturally occurring pearls to raise awareness and funding for marine conservation.

Established in Hawaii in 2018, Maris Pearl are a brand led, run, and inspired by women. They believe that we are all shaped by water, just like the organic shape of their pearls, and hope that their pieces encourage wearers to celebrate their intrinsic connection to the ocean.

Our Brief:

Our core mission was to create a unique and inspiring digital platform for Maris Pearl that would both reflect the beauty and connect their customers with the brand’s purpose. We aimed to create an easily navigable hub for the brand’s content via an online journal, and to design a website that functioned and worked just as beautifully on desktop as it did on mobile.

The Solution:

We used subtle animations and videos to create the feeling of waves throughout, mirroring the natural rhythm of the tide, whilst also introducing a colour gradient that deepens in tone as you scroll to reflect the oceans depth. The result is a truly immersive site that encourages you to visit again and again.

      • I came across Stories Studio on Instagram, I loved the look of what they were doing, the brands that they had aligned themselves with and the work they had created. I thought I would find it difficult to hand over my idea to someone else to bring it to life, but it was the best decision choosing this team to do that.

        Everything Stories Studio has worked on for my brand has been totally considered, carefully thought out, and really beautiful. They are so much more than a typical agency, bringing together perfectly my vision in design, photography and complete branding. I am so proud to be able to show people what my brand will look like, and that's a truly rewarding feeling.

        It can also be an emotional or lonely place starting up a company by yourself and so to be able to have like-minded women helping you navigate your thoughts on the brand you're all building is also incredible. I'm very grateful to the whole team.

      • I met stories studio when we were both getting started with our own ventures. From our first chat, we knew there was special chemistry and we knew we could help each other grow our businesses as partners. They cared for MILANER as if it was their own, and I’ll be forever grateful for the incredible ride we've together.
