While I was working as a contract designer for LM Restaurants, the company bought a great space in downtown Raleigh that was to be the new home for their Greek restaurant, Taverna Agora. At the time the restaurant’s website was hosted and managed by a third-party vendor. LM had limited control over the content and would incur fees if they needed the vendor to make edits for them.
Since the restaurant was going through a complete rebrand I took it upon myself to design a fully functional WordPress version of the existing site. I scheduled a meeting with the Art Director and presented my version and explained that switching to WordPress would not only give them more control over their own content but it would also save them money.
The Art Director loved the idea and gave me the opportunity to completely redesign the site and build it out in WordPress.
