An Event Destination Goes Bigger & Bolder

Showcasing Beauty and Grandeur

Nestldown is a multi-generation family property in California’s Santa Cruz mountains. It’s only 20 minutes from Silicon Valley, but you wouldn’t know it: the place is immense, stretching over 180 acres, and feels like a truly remote escape from the everyday. It’s also incredibly enchanting, with koi ponds, 36 acres of gardens, and a romantic grove surrounded by soaring redwoods.

Unfortunately, this magic wasn’t being communicated online, nor were Nestldown’s services, which had expanded over the years. Not just a beautiful place for weddings, Nestldown also hosts corporate retreats, garden tours, and other celebrations. 

Working collaboratively with Nestldown’s owners, we conceived of a new vision for the brand’s web presence. Our first step was to fly down to California to get a sense of the property ourselves. Neil, Jackie, and Pip toured the site, got an in-depth understanding of Nestldown’s operations, and plotted the creative direction for a video that would showcase beautiful gardens and joyous celebrations. When we returned to the studio, we were excited to bring the whole team together to design and code a distinctive web experience for the brand.

The new Nestldown site is visually stunning, with large images and a video art directed by Leap. It’s informative and easy to navigate. And it’s engaged in effective storytelling, helping to capture the heart of the Nestldown brand and re-position them as a premier event destination.
