Project Description

Website design brief for Velveteen

Velveteen is a bespoke wedding cake business in Wimbledon, London. Our target clients are successful young professional who live in the local area. We will attract them by offering aspirational cake designs with a focus on sugar flowers and a variety of interesting flavours. What we’re not about is cutesy, frilly cakes like the majority of designers offer.

We’d like you to design a website in Wordpress and install it to We have some ideas on what we like from other websites (see [url removed, login to view] and url’s below) but we’re looking for creative input from you. To help facilitate discussions, we propose to have a separate Skype conversation with Freelancers who are interested in the project so we can understand your ideas and how best to proceed with the project.

Must have’s
• Have an editorial, aspirational and grown up style (absolutely no pinks and frills!)
• Simple and easy to navigate, not too many clicks to find what the viewer is looking for
• Pages load very quickly
• facebook, Google+ icons linking to relevant facebook and Google pages
• Copy and photographs easy to update and change through Wordpress
• Correct screen sizing on the main web browsers and automatically adjust to fit different screen sizes including ipad.
• London phone number and contact email address on every page

Would be nice to have
• A magazine feel and look
• Ideally avoid a traditional layout of a webpage with a page bar at the top – can we make the website flow from one page to the next without being annoying for the viewer
• We like the attached font (another_typewriter) in a dark grey but happy for your input on the most suitable font
• Black or dark colour back ground
• Use different picture frames to frame content
• Copy and pricing next to the image of each cake
