Our brief was to plan, design and build a a digital solution to represent the region’s food and drink assets that allows visitors to easily find what they are looking for. The new website needed a fresh, clean design to showcase the best of Dumfries & Galloway’s food and drink offering to locals and tourists alike, as well as a fully-responsive database.
We developed and integrated a database-driven map-based listings directory to make the process of browsing and finding details about any of the regions food and drink producers and venues as easy as possible. Using custom post types created within WordPress, we set up the flexibility to be able to easily list, update and manage events (food festivals, farmers markets) and listings (venues, shops, restaurants, producers). Users are also be able to sort and filter by location and/or type (e.g. ‘Restaurants near Portpatrick‘).
