About

Who:

Whisknladle Hospitality started simply with the serendipitous meeting of one talented chef [Ryan Johnston] and one young entrepreneur [Arturo Kassel] in 2006. Convinced that what San Diego needed was a farm-fresh restaurant that served from-scratch cooking without all of the fine dining fuss, the pair opened Whisknladle in the heart of La Jolla in 2008. This back-to-basics approach to cooking – or gourmet comfort food – has firmly planted Whisknladle in the hearts of locals and tourists alike.

The Process

I was contracted out by Elevated Marketing Group to design and develop a Squarespace website for WNL Hospitality. WNL Hospitality manages 5 different restaurants in the San Diego area which include Whisknladle, Catania, Milagro Farm Winery, Gravity Heights, and Park Commons. The problem was that WNL Hospitality needed a website to showcase their various restaurants while also having a central hub for for their users to learn more about the company, apply for jobs, and book private parties.

The focus on this website design was to keep everything clear and concise for the user to find the WNL Hospitality restaurant properties. While this build came out relatively at ease, one problem we ran into was the functionality of the main banner images. The problem came with the original template that we chose which didn't come with the banner slideshow functionality. However, instead of switching templates half way through, I added custom css which allowed a style tweak in the banner design so that we could achieve what we set out for in the design process.

Overall the website project was a success and we ended up with a super easy to navigate website design while giving it some custom elements to help it stand out from other Squarespace websites.
