An Out of the Box Hamper Solution Delivered for Just In Time Gourmet

Who doesn’t like receiving gifts? What’s more, gifts packed full of foodie treats? Just In Time Gourmet’s products and hampers are truly divine and yes, we’re speaking from experience!

We had the privilege of working with this family business and owners Jodee and Justin Wearne to redesign and develop their new website. The existing site had been tarnished with black hat SEO and outsourcing by a local provider so Jodee and Justin very cautiously handed their baby over to us.

The new responsive website showcases some exciting features.

Just In Time Gourmet Home Page

Our primary goal was to promote Just In Time Gourmet’s 3 core services: Individual Products, Hampers and Create Your Own Hampers. This was achieved by creating a primary and secondary navigation, you’ll see that the site actually has a quite a few pages but these have been streamlined into tidy menus all accessible from the home page. Customers are able to shop for one of these services or combine all three. The process of this is key and is explained quite simply on the Create Your Own Hamper page.

We cleverly transformed our cart and checkout system and created a super cart (My Order) that allows custom packages to be created. Customers can purchase individual hampers, customise Just In Time Gourmet hampers or create their own hampers. These orders are collated all within the My Order page and makes the ordering process nice and easy.

Also unique to Just In Time Gourmet’s checkout is the ability to send orders to numerous delivery addresses. This means that I can spoil myself with some truffles and create my own hamper with only the products that my family like in Melbourne – no olives, no crackers and definitely no turkish delights! The bonus is that my truffles will be delivered for free! because free shipping applies to orders within Perth Metro. Win win!

Ah, the beauty of Tentacle! It has the wonderful ability of adapting to our clients needs and means we can create the perfect solution for the day-to-day operation of any business. It makes life so easy and earns us lots of points – it’s out of the box hampers made easy!

We think you’ll agree, the website is beautifully designed and totally functional. We’d love to hear your thoughts but most of all we encourage you to visit the site, who knows this maybe the perfect gift for the next birthday, thank you or get well gift that you need to buy.

HMS Popup Launches Retro Rumble With Double Crumble

The Retro Rumble is a two day festival of all things retro, with 11 soul, R&B, 60’s garage, rockabilly, blues and swing bands facing off against each other for Rumble in the Underground and a free public event with more bands, markets, food stalls, popup wine bars, fashion shows and plenty more goings on.

To complement traditional print promotional materials, we created a website with a poster look to it, but with more interactivity so that each band’s profile can be viewed. The result is this bold, bright and energetic responsive website. The really impressive part—if you’re part-nerd like us—is that the band lineup and event details are all editable in WordPress, and get automagically fitted into the list thanks to some fancy coding by devmaster Kieran.

The Retro Rumble

Even though I had nothing to do with the project, on behalf of ryhme-lovers everywhere I declared that the Launchcake for Rumble must be Apple Crumble. To match the colour themes for the two events, we ended up having double crumble; one with rhubarb, one with blueberries. It just felt right.

Perth Theatre Company Debuts New Responsive Website

Perth Theatre Company has been part of the Perth arts scene since 1983, taking up residence at the State Theatre Centre in 2010. Their old WordPress site was in need of an overhaul to accomodate an increasing amount of content in a way that was easy to manage. We created a whole new responsive design for the website and customised pages with flexible content areas and many custom fields to keep the layout of show details consistent. The changes were dramatic, resulting in a site that is not only easier to update, but allows for more flexiblity in the way content areas are used.

The home page features a dynamic banner area, automatic preview of the latest blog post, newsletter signup field, Facebook feed and two static feature areas for promotions.

The pages for shows use flexible content blocks with two size options, allowing a number of eye-catching previews to be set up with ease.

The blog offers glimpses behind the scenes of PTC productions and all the latest news from the company.

Our somewhat metaphorical LaunchCake was an apple and blueberry strudel from Corica Pastries. Like a good theatre show, strudel is complex and has several layers, leaving the consumer with a sense of fullness afterwards. (This is less than 1/3 of the strudel…the whole thing was so long it wouldn’t fit on our cake stand!)
