Friends bought a bar on Market Street, and called on us to create a new site that would reflect the beauty of the property, food, drinks and mission (on a severe budget).
The bar owners had never designed a site before. They didn’t know what they wanted, what was current, how photography was handled, content and copy, menus, any of it. They also wanted to be able to manage the site in time.
My visual design partner and I guided the Orbit Room team by first asking for 5 examples of sites they like including bar and other sites if needed. We then honed in on one site that had a common thread, and started looking for a WordPress theme. We then went by in an evening when the lighting is best, and took some photos we could insert into the initial effort. After a few weeks, we had copy, professional shots, and within a month (around the time they opened on Halloween 2015), we went live.
