Al Dente Past Bar & Kitchen in Norwich
NEW WEBSITE DESIGN & DEVELOPMENT FOR THIS FRESH PASTA ARTISANS IN NORWICH
“‘Al Dente’ is an authentic Italian pasta restaurant located on St Giles St, Norwich.”
Last year we were asked by Al Dente owner, Adriano to integrate a shopping cart into their existing site that was built for them a few years ago by another company.
Once we started working with Adriano and he came to trust us that we are a company that actually does what is says it will do and not 6 months further down the line, he asked us in January to design and develop a new website for Al Dente so it is ready for when the Coronavirus restrictions start to ease and we are all let out of the house again!
The visualise studio developed a rather funky home page for the new site, initially showing the promo video for Al Dente and having a really cool scroll down feature. Simply pull the page down on there mouse and the site takes over and moves to the next frame and sits perfectly in the browser whatever size the screen is.
We wanted to produce a more simplistic design for the Al Dente website but without compromising on the functionality or impact. We kept a lot of white space on the site so as to highlight the plates of pasta which are promoted around the site pages. As well as creating a bespoke style for the Deli Shop which allows for payments to be taken on orders and then a click & collect for the order to be picked up from their restaurant on St Giles.
Keeping the brand of Al Dente at the forefront of each page of the site as well as complimenting the colours of cream and black, has allowed us to create both a visually stunning and very functional website.
A bespoke coded side menu was also created allowing for the full page of the site to be visible when viewing and only calling on the navigation when needed.
