The owner of The Buckley House Restaurant initially approached me to develop a logo for the new restaurant, so this piece consists of both identity and web work. I also photographed the chef and restaurant space for the rotating images featured on the site.

An essential page for any restaurant is that which contains contact and directions, without it patrons would never be able to locate their destination. In this situation, I utilized Google Maps to allow site users the flexibility of obtaining directions tailored to their needs quickly and easily.

The redesign for www.chautauqualakerental.com was one of my first forays into using CSS exclusively.

The client wanted a refresh of their existing site to showcase the charming atmosphere associated with the relaxing property, while also being a quick load for users with slower Internet connections.

As is standard with all my website set ups, I included Google Analytics so the site owners will receive monthly emails of traffic to their website. From this information the owners were able to conclude that site traffic dramatically increased once the redesign was complete.

“Working with Samantha was pleasure. She listened to our thoughts and desires for the site and implemented them accordingly. The traffic to the site www.chautauqualakerental.com has more than tripled. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for any web design work.” – Andreas R. Tabor
