Terminus on Darby – Web Design
Terminus on Darby is a fresh and modern cafe, bar and restaurant on Darby St, Newcastle. Terminus had an existing website which they designed themselves using an online drag-and-drop site builder.
We were asked to refresh the website and create a design that would help capture the feeling you get when you walk into their store. As part of this project we used the following skills;
Terminus on Darby asked us to build a website that was fresh, modern and informative. We had to capture their brand and ensure that customers who visited the website felt the same as customers walking into the cafe. Ultimately our web design team had to ensure visitors felt welcomed and appreciated as every customer is at Terminus on Darby.
The website had to rank well, as is always the case, and be well supported by leading technology. The website had to have great content and the menu needed to be well-presented.
We designed and developed the new Terminus on Darby website using WordPress. WordPress is the world’s favourite content management system and we love it because of its simplicity and strength. We used an existing template and customised it to suit the brand of Terminus on Darby.
We used a few of our favourite plugins to make the web design process easier like Visual Composer and Yoast SEO. We integrated Instagram, Google Maps and social media into the site to help customers connect with the business and make the site as user friendly and personable as possible.
The eGroup Creative team used a few design techniques to create that modern, fresh feel requested by Terminus on Darby. We used a burger menu to minimise the disruption at the top of the page and streamline the system. We flattened the design by using simple fonts, a basic colour palette and image background.
