Y Delicacies - Website design, Illustration, Animation and Branding


Yvette’s Jemison dropped us a line earlier this year. She was looking for someone to create a website to share her recipes and, in future, sell her cookbooks. We’ve worked with several clients in the USA, but this one sounded especially suited to Tash’s visual style. Yvette used the words ‘whimsical’ and ‘modern’ - perfect!

This was exactly the kind of project we love; branding and website in one.

Tash visualised her Louisiana kitchen filled with spices and organic ingredients and got to work on the branding. Thanks to Yvette’s photographs of her pantry and cookbooks, not to mention her recipe shots we had lots to work with. Yvette was keen to incorporate illustrations throughout the site, so Tash created a wide range of headers, icons and drawings using pen and watercolour. We especially loved how the pantry page turned out, with the lovely hand drawn ingredients.

One of our trademarks is hand drawn social icons and for YDelicacies Tash created some awesome mini jars, that feature in both the site’s footer. Another great touch is the subtle animated GIF in the logo, which loops as the visitor explore the site.

We chose a Squarespace template that was fully featured and suited to blogging, making the most of the ‘summary block’ option for displaying specific blog categories.

No doubt Yvette’s site will draw readers from around the world, it was such a pleasure working with her. We even have an invitation to visit New Orleans and sample the recipes first hand!

"When it comes to designing a creative and effective website, Yesh & Tash will surpass your expectations. Every detail, with regard to design, was noted and evident in the final product. They worked closely with me every step of the way. Their skill level, with regard to branding, design, custom illustrations and animation is impressive.  Their outstanding customer service continued to provide assistance even after my website was completed.  I consider Yesh & Tash an intuitive and dedicated design team, and highly recommend them for your website needs."
