Exposed brick and a deep blue ceiling are part of the bistro atmosphere at The Full Moon Cafe in downtown Manteo and were pulled into this website design as visual references of the cafe experience.
An example of a simple, small format website design template created during my tenure at OuterBanksThisWeek.com and intended to provide an economical web presence for small, start-up businesses. Though a small project, Agave Roja's website was one of the more enjoyable sites to design, as I took design cues from interior decor, the food and the colors and graphic traditions of Mexico.
During a reference photo shoot to gather info on paint colors, decor items, textures and other elements to work into the design, I came across this door upon which one of the owners had been experimenting with a blowtorch in an effort to inject an aged character into what was otherwise a brand new contemporary door. I took the photo sensing it would somehow find a place in the site design and when I returned to the office and was reviewing the images the idea of a Tequila Door suddenly struck me and the Photoshop fun began. Clicking on the Tequila Door leads site visitors from the home page to the About Tequila page where they find information about the types and grades of tequila and the distilling process as well as a menu of Agave Roja's extensive tequila selection.
The site has since been updated to a new, more modern design.
