In 2012 I built the first website for certified Chef de Cuisine, Chef Brain Lumley (

My approach involved incorporating skeuomorphism into the layout in order to invoke an immediate connection to the kitchen, and food in the minds of visitors.

Integrating skeuomorphism was executed through the use of shaped wood paneling textures throughout the site in various ways, which would remind people of familiar surfaces such as cupboard paneling, and cutting boards. The use of curved, content containers with borders, and accented by flourishes was meant to be reminiscent of crockery.
