Crowthers Cake Studio, part of the Devonshire Bakery in Frodsham, are expanding their range of products and need an brand new online presence to promote their amazing range of cakes and cupcakes.
I was recently approached by Rebecca and Rob Crowther to redesign their sites and was very happy to take on this project for the well established family run local business. The three website design concepts you can see above are designed to show off the comprehensive range of wedding, birthday and celebration cakes on offer. I’ve used bright vibrant colours where possible to reflect the creative nature of the work carried out by Rebecca and her staff.
Below is a brief summary of each website design option which outlines the various features of each concept in more detail.
- Design Option 1 – A big bright background panel for the header with a logo design sporting a cupcake, image loop, tabbed navigation, studio shop and intro text occupy the top half of this design. The lower half holds three main category boxes with links through to all top product information pages. The footer design is clean and simple with a cupcake pattern background.
- Design Option 2 – With a ribbon effect banner logo, pale blue background and subtle navigation menu this is the most traditional design out of the three. The content area features an image slider at the top to promote various areas inside the website. Three category boxes with site links followed by some information about the site sits at the bottom of the content area. The footer here is also quite minimal and uncluttered with social media links and a rosette style logotype.
- Design Option 3 – Last but not least this is a slightly different format with a wider variety of colours etc. A pale green header, contemporary logotype, full width navigation menu and big bold image slider fill the upper part of the page. The three main category boxes are colour coded and show a fun selection of products on offer. The footer area of this design is again simple and clean featuring site wide links to all the most important pages.
Now that you’ve seen the three designs above and read a little about them please feel free to leave your comments in the box below, it will really help Rebecca, Rob and their colleagues in their final decision!
