The making of the Demilie website

Overview• Process

Talking to the client. The new product needs a full website and even though the product is already available, the website is still at a planning stage. It means we need to come up with an info page where people will see and want to buy the creamed honey and can find ways to contact the producer.

Looking at the company’s corporate identity and drawing first sketches.

Honey twists which means we need to show it with something rotating.

Deciding to divide the website into two parts, a standard text page and a virtual reality section which is where we’ll have rotation. The client likes the idea.

To make sure everything fits, creating subsections for each information block and a menu to switch between them.
