We've just finished a refreshingly quirky site for London based restaurant chain, Belgo. Featuring Belgo Bill, singing lobsters and even Jean Claude Van Damme - it's probably one of the weirdest sites we've worked on, but also one of the best. Clickety Click for a gander.
For those of you who may be unfamiliar with the brand, here's a little copy and paste for you - "Belgo has been a hit since it opened back in 1998 and a destination for tourists and Londoners alike ever since. Well known for its high quality Belgian food and drink, accompanied by unbeatable service and a stimulating environment, it has won a Best London Restaurant Award and was also runner up in the Best Family Restaurant Award 2000"
The site itself uses a prominent flash header to add life to the pages and convey the quirky nature of the brand, whilst the site functionality remains strictly usable - allowing visitors to book online, find their nearest Belgo and view all the menus that are on offer. We had some great fun dreaming up and animating all the python-esque characters you'll find scattered through the site - adding the finishing touches to a piece which we hope really engages the visitor and is a true extension of the brand itself - but I guess you'll have to be the judge of that one.
