The challenge with working with Kismat was to create a restaurant website that did not feel or act like a typical *Indian Cuisine* Restaurant. This demanded high quality photos of the food produced by Kismat as well as high quality photos of the restaurant itself.
Being a forward thinking company, Kismat wanted a mobile first website, but also a website that would be appropriate for desktop. This meant that a responsive site was needed, something which scales to all devices; mobile, tablets, and desktops.
The size of the menu was also a challenge, especially for working on mobile devices; should the text be small to have a lot on the page, or should the menu be spread across multiple pages. Spoiler alert, we opted for the former.
Our strategy does not change much between projects. We work closely with the client to understand their needs. For the restaurant, it was very easy to understand that they wished to get more customers in-house and sell more take-away meals. How to do this in a clear and concise manner is the difficult part, as we wished to make a website that was not a generic piece of work as with most websites, but to keep it within the very limited budget of the client.
To accomplish this, we needed a plan of action, with a concrete design created initial by Scenegraph, and discussed on multiple meetings with the client.
After this, the decision to create a multi page website, 3 to begin with. Wireframe designs were to be created before content is placed within that website.
We have created multiple websites (to many to list), and the approach does not change too much between projects, but this project was different due to the nature of selling more than just food, but selling an experience through branding and high-res photos.
The results speak for themselves. The client is happy. We are over the moon.
“Dave and Scenegraph helped us get our restaurant online, from helping with logo design, suggesting designs, and taking care of all the hosting. We asked for a site and got so much more. Thanks Dave.”
