Reimaging a website for a chef to better connect to his audience.
I worked mainly on the development of the site but I had a chance to work on the initial design concept for the entire site. From scratch, I built a three recipe search system and a direct social feed which brings in Donal’s latest tweets, pins and instagram pics.
This project allowed me to get a better understanding of a project from start to finish as well as refining my design eye.
This function searchs all recipes for the ingredients input by the user, this was suggested by the client. I had to create a system to search all recipes and display the relevant ones without reloading the page and to integrate it smoothly with the recipe archive page. This function uses Ajax to load the recipes after searching.
I was asked to draw the initial layouts for this site to generate ideas for the wireframe stage. My sketches were influenced by sites the client had mentioned as well as elements I believed would enhance the user experience.
