My Role: ui • ux • IA • HTML • PHP • CSS • Social Media
My main goals were to modernise the site's appearance and to make it responsive for mobile devices. I also would assist them with their social media activities. After consulting the owners of the restaurant to understand their needs, I got to work; the only requirement I had was to keep the existing colour palette (yellow reminds them of Japanese curry, Muracci's speciality).
The first thing I did was establish an architecture for the site, as the original site was sorely lacking structure. I did a little research on how other local restaurants structured their sites and came up with a possible site map to present to the Muracci's owners (at the time, there were three locations in the Bay Area as well as plans to transfer the old blog to the new site).
Once I got the approval from the client, I implemented the site using HTML, PHP, and CSS. The site was launched shortly after the opening of their newest restaurant in Berkeley. I also worked with them on setting up social media accounts (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and Yelp) for their restaurant manager, as well as creating some menus and other promotional items for the grand opening.
