The Desert Rooter & Plumbing Brand

Desert Rooter & Plumbing already had a brand identity long before they hired Minds Eye Designs to build their website; therefore, it was important to stay true that identity. Staying true to the brand identity would ensure that the clients current customer base would easily identify the Desert Rooter & Plumbing brand. The inspiration for the website came from a phone book ad for the client’s business. The mascot for the site is Morris the plumbing snake. The mascot, background graphics, color scheme and typography scheme were inspired by the phone book ad.
