Old Ellicott City

  • Website, Design System
Representing a town with an independent spirit

Old Ellicott City is a beautiful, historic main street and a thriving downtown with an ever-expanding mix of exciting shops and restaurants. While working at Ashton Design, we created a responsive, high performant website for the town that fully represents its quirky, independent spirit.

Old Ellicott City was built among seven hills—represented by a 7-pointed star in the identity, which inspired the design concept for the website. The points of the star are carried throughout the design system.

The town continues to rebuild after two devastating flash floods. The website highlights businesses and events in the historic Maryland town and fosters community involvement.
