Quinceañeras are big business. This Latinx tradition is like a sweet sixteen (well… fifteen) meets a debutante ball.
This website was the brainchild of founder Cindy Calderon while she was working on her Masters in Business Administration. The goal here, to combine the very traditional event that is the quinceañera with the tastes and sensibilities of young women in the 21st century. (When she came to me, Cindy said, “grandmothers want a quince, but granddaughters don’t.”
The “birthday girl” always wears a tiara and usually a gown. So this logo has a crown. It is a tiara of lowercase M’s. Which means the Q can stand alone. I’m also a big fan of having a logomark that tells the story without needing all of the words.
I don’t design a ton of blog-forward sites, and My Modern Quince is just that. The most recent appear on the homepage and on the user’s account page.
When a vendor is “premium,” meaning they’ve paid for their placement, their listing will appear to any user, but any vendor can create a free listing which displays to users who’ve created their free account.
It is free for a user to create an account, and — when they do — they get a free dashboard which allows them to set their budget, track their vendors, plan their playlists, create guest lists and even includes a countdown clock that displays that the top of every page.
