We designed the Woodsman website as a strong visual introduction to the atmosphere of this Southeast Portland gathering spot. This is a place where someone in the neighborhood could stop in for a drink and a snack on their way home and young lovers could while away the evening making eyes at each other over a bottle of wine and the most delicious courses you could imagine. To this end, we focused on the gorgeous photography (courtesy David Lantham Reamer), subtle vintage elements, and lovely old type.
Uncompromising responsive design
We built the website in WordPress (it is important that our clients can easily make updates). We use web fonts from Typekit because we’re not satisfied with what comes on the average computer. We made sure that there are big, lovely photos as a backdrop to the experience. And, because many visitors will be searching for the restaurant on the go, this is a fully mobile, responsive website design. Do visit the site on your cell phone or iPad—it’s lightning fast. On the phone, we strip out all unnecessary visual flourish, so that folks can get the details they need as quickly as possible.
An integrated reservation system
Looking for a better way to capture reservations, we built an integrated reservation system right into the site. Visitors get an amazing and immersive photography experience while searching for the perfect table.
Newsletters to match
And, as is so often the case, we designed an email template that fits like a glove. Easy to view on on your cell phone or iPad — you can stay up to date on all the latest events and menu updates. Perfect when your stomach’s grumbling and good company’s calling.
