The Brentwood Kitchen
Jump into the full project for one of the leading restaurants in Essex, The Brentwood Kitchen.
Back in October 2017, the management team at The Brentwood Kitchen contacted me and expressed their interest in having a new website developed. This initial conversation lead to a 2 year spell working for TBK designing not only their website, but all menus, promotional assets and more during this time.
Brentwood Kitchen were looking to increase their online presence with a new website and have a place to house their menus, event promotions and amazing gallery of food & drink photos…
Opposed to some other food and restaurant based sites, I wanted to create a simple and user friendly experience for The Brentwood Kitchen’s website. Users are mainly visiting to either Book a Table, get directions or find contact information for the restaurant, and so I pitched the idea of a limited number of pages and 2-3 colour design for an overall sleek and simple site.
"Your websie is amazing!"
Social media is one of the biggest advertisements for websites and so creating a mobile friendly, optimised site was crucial for TBK. 80% of the website traffic on the Brentwood Kitchen website came from a social media redirect. As of July 2020, 98.3% of Facebook users access the site using a mobile device. Therefore, an optimised site not only for The Brentwood Kitchen, but for any of my clients is paramount.

As mentioned, my spell working for the guys at Brentwood Kitchen not only included the website design and management, but the design and creation of food and drink menus, social media assets and event promotional graphics.
My key vision behind all menus and graphics created for TBK was to have a consistent theme, uncomplicated an easy to use design throughout. I developed accompanying vector graphics, as seen below, to spice up the designs and link to the pieces in question. For example, the quote “I don’t like food, I love it” used on most menus.
