THE CLIENT:

Maris Pearl use naturally 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 is to create a unique and inspiring digital platform for Maris Pearl that reflects and connects to your customers with beauty and purpose.We aimed to create an easy to navigate hub for your content via an online journal. To design a website that functions and works just as beautifully on desktop as it does on mobile.

“IT’S ALWAYS OURSELVES WE FIND IN THE SEA”

– E.E Cummings

The Solution:

We used subtle animations & videos to create the feeling of waves through out, high and low tides, a colour gradient that deepens in tone as you scroll to reflect the oceans depths. The result is a truly an immersive site which encourages you to visit again and again.

      • If there’s a word to describe these two ladies it’s ‘magnifique’. We spent months working on Umnya Dune Camp and I had the oppotunity first hand to see how they put their energy and creativity for each detail of Umnya. These girls are perfectionists, they are also extremely helpful, professional and full of life.

      • Emily and Melissa, you have worked miracles honestly, you bring tears to our eyes. We can’t explain the emotions that we feel, thank you so much for understanding us and being able to translate our ideas... put your expertise and personal touch on them... and creating magic!


        • Heather and Isabel

      • 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.
