Quick takes are brief interviews with the C3 staff getting their insight into recently developed projects. Today, April Pollock answers questions about the website for Mel-O-Dee Restaurant & Catering in New Carlisle, Ohio.
What were the main objectives for the website?
Prior to the launch of the new site, Mel-O-Dee Restaurant did not have a web presence. The goal was to establish a presence that allowed patrons to easily access menus, promote the new catering venture and allow customers to submit a carryout or catering order online. We wanted to make sure that the history of the establishment was captured as well.
What can you share of the graphic design of the website?
For the overall feel of the design, we captured their landmark sign and worked it into the logo, and pulled the color palette from the interior of the building. We used those elements they are known for such as the musical notes and worked them into the essence of the site.
What is your favorite feature of the site?
Personally my favorite feature is that the site is responsive. For a restaurant, it is important for the menus and information to be mobile friendly as I know I often check this out on my phone if I am in the area and interested in a new spot.
