Chive Blossom Restaurant & Bar
Chive Blossom Restaurant & Bar is practically a household name along the Grand Strand. They have won numerous awards and have had much acclaim with their delicious cuisine. So when they contacted us at Ellev Advertising Agency, we were very excited about having the opportunity to work with them and provide them with some award-winning website design, graphics, logo design, as well as award-winning food photography. When we started the project with Chive Blossom we needed to do an entirely new branding and look. Our goal was to do something modern but retro, minimalist but complex, vibrant but clean. We also had the task of incorporating the “Restaurant & Bar” in the name and moving away from the cafe’ branding. No simple feat, but from the reviews from patrons and the owners I’d say we achieved it!
With Chive Blossom’s new web design and logo, we wanted to be sure to maintain continuity to maximize branding. We made sure that we used complementary colors, fonts, and styles to make the new look cohesive in all its elements. We also designed the new website to be responsive (respond to the user’s behavior and environment based on screen size, platform and orientation) as well as a semi-parallax design so that we could highlight the new food photography by Ellev. We also wanted to feature menu snippets and interior page teasers to entice the viewer to delve further into the website to view the menus, social media, and other important sections of the website. We consider all these things when building websites for our clients as our goal is to maximize the user experience and to have them spend as much time as possible viewing the website. We do this to ensure that when a viewer visits your website that they get past your homepage and in your front door. If our websites don’t help bring you business, then we haven’t done our job.
When designing the new site for Chive Blossom – www.chiveblossom.com – we also made sure to make use of all the press and video coverage that the restaurant has received over the years as well as incorporate all sorts of social media. We even incorporated an Instagram widget in the footer encouraging Chive Blossom’s patrons to share their food photos and info from their visits. We also designed the food and drink menus so that they are text-based which makes them easily searchable and seen as content. We use these practices when building our client’s sites to help improve the website’s visibility which is mandatory for good ranking in search engines such as Google, Bing, Yahoo, etc. At Ellev Advertising Agency, we practice good web design techniques to make sure your website gets the best possible results!
