We are always proud to be chosen to work with local businesses. This was very much the case when Archie’s Food approached us to create their new website. Based just down the road from our Fulham office, we’d already become fully acquainted with the delicious food their kitchen creates, so we were excited to assist Archie’s in communicating their catering business successfully online.
From the tagline ‘Catering Through the Seasons’ , Hector dreamed up moodboards, and website designs that made our mouths water just looking at them! This web design was particularly enjoyable because of the trust Archie’s put in Hector to design from a basic brief. He displayed his talent by crafting a clean and stylish design that simultaneously felt welcoming and user-friendly. The designs, to which Archie’s were very complimentary, reflected his natural eye for colour palettes and understanding of the ability of a picture to say a thousand words.
After discussion with and approval by the Archies team, it was time to incorporate the design into a functioning website. A key feature in the creation of the Archie’s site was the incorporation of sample menus to exemplify the type of delicious food they serve at events they cater for. It was pivotal that this was easily accessible and simple to navigate to look appealing and encourage users to look at what Archie’s offer. Ive created an awesome style of menu that combines professional appearance with smooth functionality:
We think you’ll agree that this menu feature looks super smart by refraining from revealing all info at once, whilst keeping navigation clear via icons and a drop down style. This displays how Foundry are skilled at ensuring both design and usability are priorities in our web designs. Hector’s icons of sketch style effectively reflect the handmade, personalised ethos and service that Archie’s provide, whilst fitting in seamlessly to the Archie’s colour scheme.
Archie’s are hugely passionate about delivering good, honest, delicious food, so they needed a site that looked as tasty as their culinary creations are. In our dedication to presenting Archie’s Food as the fabulous company that it is, arranging the images of food and events was a carefully crafted process.
As you can see the outcome is pretty impressive, with the slider images looking good enough to eat! The use of sliding headers effectively displays a range of what Archie’s do, showing both the culinary delights they cook up, as well as the stunning events they’ve put on when appropriate.
We are happy to have contributed to Archie’s journey, and predict they have a bright (and yummy) future ahead of them!
