SUSHI ZO 

site redesign

 
 

OVERVIEW

THE OPPORTUNITY

We had the opportunity to sit down with developers and redesign a restaurant's website. We chose Sushi Zo, a beautiful sushi restaurant awarded a Michelin Star for it's elegant and mouth-watering sushi. 

THE APPROACH

THE CLIENT

THE FINAL PRODUCT

The designers and developers all came together and we kicked off the redesign with a design studio. Together we all pitched in our two cents about the direction we should go when redesigning the site. After finalizing a general layout, the designers created wireframes taking them to high fidelity. Then using Zeplin, we handed off the designs, all while keeping an open line of communication between us and the developers.

The dev team is still working on the product, but here is a sneak peak into the final site redesign.

 

DESIGN

THE STUDIO

Like mentioned earlier, we kicked off our sprint with a design studio with the designers and developers. This helped us all have a general consensus on the layout of the site. 

THE DESIGNERS

We then took this blueprint and began researching about Sushi Zo's approach to their approach to serving food, which is called Omakase which translates to "I'll leave it up to you"; leaving the menu up to the chef.

Sushi Zo's attention to detail in what they serve makes the vibe of the restaurant minimal, but in actuallity, there is a deep history and artform to their food and atmosphere they provide their customers.

Below is the style guide we created to help us as we created our high fidelity mockups.

FINAL DESIGN

Below is a brief overview of the high fidelity mockup we created for both desktop and mobile

 

HANDOFF

ZEPLIN

We uploaded all of our wireframes into Zeplin, allowing our developers to have the most accurate details when it came to developing and coding the final product.

We established multiple stand-ups to get each side of the team caught up on the development of our redesign. Allowing us to be available to developers for any questions they had or the suggestions they made.
