Elephant & Co is a new restaurant in Pietermaritzburg. The space is exquisite, with creative flair and attention to detail in everything. The team wanted a new brochure-style website to reflect the style and charm of this inspiring place so as to entice people to visit. The website needed to appear in Google search results and work beautifully across devices, since many people would be visiting the site from their mobile phones.
Design, with impact.
Create a charming digital experience that mirrors the Elephant & Co atmosphere. Attention to detail and communicating the brand’s message visually were key features of this project. I built a custom back to top button (a flamingo) and created different homepage layouts for desktop, tablet and mobile viewing. On a restaurant website the menu is particularly important. I designed the menu so as to be easy-to-read and elegant. It also displays beautifully across devices.
For this project I structured the website and suggested they add an events page showcasing their regular and one-off events. Each event can then be shared on social media, leading back to the website. I also helped the client set up email addresses and designed their email signatures.
