Website Design, Wordpress Development, Client Training
Star Pizza hired me to redesign their outdated website and provide a responsive, mobile-friendly website. Today, more than 60% of Star Pizza's traffic comes from mobile devices.
- Client - Star Pizza
- Date Completed - Summer 2013
Star Pizza, Houston Press Reader’s Choice Best Pizza in Houston, has 2 family owned and operated restaurants in Houston. When I first came in contact with the owners, the Star Pizza website was in a lot of repair. We quickly got to work, sketching out ideas while simultaneously trying just about every pizza on the menu and more (I recommend Starburst on Wheat).
The former Star Pizza website was outdated and didn’t work on mobile phone. Not working on mobile phones not only is bad for customers (over 60% of web traffic is on mobile), but also hurts your Search Engine rankings. Google punishes companies that don’t think about mobile experiences, and it’ll hurt business a lot if Google doesn’t like your website.
I set out to give Star Pizza a website that looked like their brand, gave customers easy access to the menu, learn about the Star Pizza family history, and look great for mobile pizza lovers.
The website involved setting up Wordpress, designing and developing the website, photographing pizza, photoshopping banners to match the restaurant marquees, and teaching the managers of Star Pizza how to edit the website incase items come on or off the menu. The project started by sketching designs with the client, moving to website graphic design, and then to the Wordpress development.
