District Dish: Blue Water Media Designs Mouthwatering New Website for Metropolitan Washington Restaurant Week
Posted: February 1, 2013
The Aesthetically Appealing and Easy to Use Site Provides a Digital Haven for DC Area Foodies
The Restaurant Association of Metropolitan Washington (RAMW) just launched a revamped website right in time for this year’s Restaurant Week. Created by DC area web design firm, Blue Water Media, http://www.ramw.org/restaurantweek/ will increase digital visibility for the week-long culinary celebration and help DC foodies get discounts on the best dishes in the district.
The unique site layout and high quality food imagery draw users in and create a fresh and appealing feel. Simple navigation and strong call-to-actions to find a restaurant and subscribe to exclusive deals on meals drive desired users to engage with the site, and prominently placed pricing, Restaurant Week information, links to social media channels, and the Restaurant week hashtag (#DMVRW), further encourage visitors to participate in and promote the event. Lastly, an API with Open Table allows users to make dining reservations easily without leaving the website.
Blue Water Media’s implementation of the Drupal content management system allows RAMW to more easily update the site with restaurant information and details, ensuring it remains a comprehensive resource for the DC dining public.
