Café des Fleurs is a coffee house in Rye with a difference, they sell beautiful flowers. Having recently moved from their original location on Strand Quay, they are now to be found next to the Railway Station, much to the commuters’ delight!
Lucy wasn’t content with just a geographical change and asked us to realise a website design by local photographer Richard Harris to compliment the new surroundings.
The resulting www.cafedesfleurs.co.uk has been developed using Zurb’s responsive framework Foundation. This enables the site to work on all devices intuitively. The large background images (which resize depending on the browser size) for example, are not shown on mobile and other smaller devices to reduce bandwidth demand and to enhance legibility.
Lucy has full control of her website using the WordPress content management system which she took to extremely quickly.
The bespoke WordPress theme makes full use of available theme features to help Lucy to manage such as custom header image, widget sidebars, custom menus, featured images and the gallery.
