Cocktail Site UX


The Problem

A cocktail enthusiast friend had an idea for a cocktail site — a “virtual cocktail library”, but they were frustrated when trying to translate it to a WordPress site they’d built. (I should mention, this was before food blogs and recipe-centric themes had come into vogue). They brought me this ┬áchart for inspiration.



The Solution

In order to build the site, the taxonomy would have to be use the pre-existing WordPress tags and categories, which I was familiar with. I simplified the grid to show the client how the categories worked, and we talked about how the grid could then generate recipe suggestions.



The Result

Unfortunately, the client found another job, and the project never got much further than that — one of my greatest regrets! I include it here in the hopes that someone else will want to implement it.
