What Kristen was looking for
Already having a wealth of professional experience Kristen was turning her hand to a new venture, a passion in fact: cheese. More specifically, providing for a gap in the UK market in the area of quality Mexican cheese for professional kitchens and the UK food scene in general from a dairy in urban dairy in Peckham, London.
She already had some core design aspects and principles in place, and was looking for a very specific feel to the site design overall. It was also important that the site had functionality in line with the company’s younger target markets, so being usable on mobile was a target as was integration with Social Media sites to help promote the Gringa Dairy products and events.
What we did
First things first we had to be sure we had a look for the site which worked with the fledgling Gringa Dairy brand. Following a process of discussion and shortlisting we landed on a style which felt was the perfect vehicle to get Gringa Dairy going, and got going with a secured manual install of a WordPress system to be the foundation for the site. Automated backups were set up, a firewall security scanner implemented and some simple Search Engine Optimisation imrpovement.
Once the key technical work was done the site content was put in place, and then the layout and design further stylised to work with it and provide that feel Kristen was looking for. Social Media integration was set up, the mobile-responsive design tested (including a mobile-responsive Google location map) and a simple purchase process also embedded into the ‘Buy’ page to make it that step simpler for customers to order the products
Once all was completed, the preview and review stages completed and any amendments implemented, we provided Kristen with her documentation and guides on making use of her site in future to ensure she could get the best out of it in the long-term and could be confident of knowing how to change things with the site if she ever wanted to in future.
We’re really pleased with the final website, stylish and functional and perfectly in keeping with the style and colour scheme that Kristen was aiming for. It’s mobile & tablet responsive, so works excellently with a wide range of devices, but isn’t swamped in mod-cons rather keeping a good, clean look which focuses on what’s really important about Gringa: the excellent cheese they provide to a range of happy customers!
More important than what we thought about the final product though is what Kristen felt, and we’re chuffed she’s please telling us:
“THANK YOU for all of your help Geoff – really super happy with the site, thanks again!”
