Website Launch: WA Imports

I am giddy giddy giddy to announce the launch of a brand-spankin’ new website for client WA Imports!

Check out the sexy new site here: http://waimports.com/

With the lightning-quick work of Canopy29, I was able to work with web developer genius Jonathan Domanus to get launch approval within the hour of sending the website to the client for review. Whoohoo!

WHO IS WA IMPORTS?

WA Imports is an ingredient driven company, partnering with some of the world’s finest artisanal growers and processors. WA Imports offers a wide variety of specialty food products that allow the professional chef and chef at home to add a little something special to their recipes.

I had the joy of using their Yakami Orchards Yuzu Juice with seared ahi tuna, and it made me look like a cooking rockstar. (And trust me, I am *not* a cooking rockstar. That’s what my husband is for.)

Cocktail enthusiasts behind the restaurant bar and at-home bar alike can also use WA Imports’ products to build creative and sophisticated drinks that elevate the palette to another level.

I know that mixologist extraordinaire Adam Seger (also a wonderful client), likes to use WA Imports’ products in some of his masterful cocktail creations.

SERIOUS STREET CRED

WA Imports has some serious street cred too. They have been featured in The New York Times, Food & Wine Magazine, Tasting Table, and the Chicago Tribune Magazine.

THE WEBSITE DESIGN

The client previously had a clunky site that did not reflect the premium nature of their products. My goal was to design a site that was very clean, open, elegant, easy-to-use, and sophisticated. White space was king here. Most importantly, I wanted to let their products be the star of the show, and I am excited to say that the design accomplishes just that.

I must also put in a great word for Canopy29’s Content Management System. When I was populating the site with content, I found their CMS was fast and extremely easy to use. I felt like a pro developer CMS-ing away!

LIKE AND FOLLOW!

Aside from the client wanting a “fast and slick” site, they wanted to get on the social media hub, so I worked with Canopy29 to get WA Imports up and running on Facebook and Twitter. So LIKE and FOLLOW WA Imports to get the latest on their new, mouth-watering products!

A SERIOUS DEADLINE

What’s even more exciting is that WA Imports will be featured in the Fancy Food Show in San Francisco this weekend January 15-17, which is a huge annual show for them. We launched just in time for them to show off their brand new site to their booth visitors and fans, which will be imperative for WA Imports to spread the word about their phenomenal products.

(Did you know that Patti LaBelle once visited WA Imports’ booth at a food show and professed how much of a fan she is of their products? UMMMM… AMAZING!)

Congratulations to WA Imports on their new website!
