As noted above, after our team spoke with the owners of Cappuccino Catering - we were excited to take on their project. With a lineup of Frozen Cappuccino's, espresso, latte's, Berry Chill frozen yogurt, ice cream, and more - it was time for Cappuccino Catering to offer a fully loaded website. CappuccinoCatering.com provides users with the sense of a coffee shop but also something so much larger.
From a portfolio gallery, to a blog, to AJAX, Cappuccino Catering features a jam packed website filled with their brand language (content) and brand. Educate your mind on coffee innovations, ingredients, bean history, and more. Our overall goal during the design and development of Cappuccino Catering was to provide their brand and online presence with integrity and a professional appeal that spoke their language (coffee).
The portfolio load colorful and vivid graphics of the product/item, along with the name and description (ingredients) of each service clicked on. Following the Cappuccino Catering brand, we designed icons for each service that pre-loads the portfolio gallery. This section is editable by the administration in the backend login specifically designed for the site owner.
A video player is a great and affordable way to provide a feeling of closeness and personal connection with your online audience. Cappuccino Catering requested a video player to highlight their artistic work in action. You will not only have a taste of their skills by reading content and viewing static images. Now, users can actually watch a short clip of a barista using the necessary ingredients to make coffee. Check it out for yourself and you will notice the change of feel between a static image and a video.
After browsing on CappuccinoCatering.com - you will notice how fast the pages open. What you are experiencing is titled AJAX. Our developers use AJAX for the quickest load speeds and for clean and smooth page transitions. Cappuccino Catering's portfolio gallery, roll overs, and slides are all developed with AJAX. After the page has loaded on your browser once, you will begin to experience the visual results of AJAX. Since it saves the user time, AJAX enhances the visual experience with instant gratification. It can sometimes be beneficial in reducing boredom on a standard or basic website but overall it gives the impression of saving user time with every click.
If you have reviewed our case studies, you may remember reading that any product or item must be described to its fullest extent prior to a user making an eCommerce purchase or calling via the phone to place an order. With that said, what better, more efficient and affordable way to do this - than the lightbox function. Lightbox's are used to provide clarity, detail, and vividness to items and products. Cappuccino Catering understands the art of coffee and their airorating and foam designs on their cappuccino's and late's are marvelous. Using a lightbox, we brought the photography (beverages/food) to life.
