Case Study: Porte Noire

Posted by Alarie Design

Porte Noire is a group of several salons currently located across Central Florida that offer independent stylists to rent salon space in a group environment, all while running their own business. The Porte Noire brand is elegant and upscale while being a comfortable and inviting space.

Website Design

  We designed a fully responsive site built on ExpressionEngine as a content management system so the client can make simple changes and the site can continue to grow as more locations. The design of the site is modular so content can continue to be added and expanded across all Porte Noire properties and its sister brand, Studio U Salons.


  In addition to web and print work, we were asked to film and edit a video that showcased Porte Noire for potential stylists. The goal of the video was to explain the motto of Porte Noire salons – “Independent, but not alone.” This project involved shooting interviews, B-roll and event footage, editing, and motion graphics work.
