Website Design for Rosies and Starboard Restaurants

The Starboard Restaurant is all about enjoying a cosy evening overlooking Crooklets beach with a cooked pizza from an open stove wood burner.

As I had already done the branding, it was a natural progression from the designs to the website. The task was to build an interactive WordPress website that scrolls (a one page website).  But rather than just having big images spanning across the width of the page, I wanted to do something a bit more quirky. So instead, a curved wood textured with a rusted pipe to separate the sections was designed.

As well as the Starboard website, it had to be combined with Rosies Kitchen website. This meant revamping the current website. And Instead of having images spanning across the page again, I decided to use hand drawn icons with a rough pen line to separate each section. These icons were designed to be friendly and enjoyable to match the bright branding colours of red and white.

To combine both of these websites together, a landing page was also put together. This allows visitors to pick one of the two restaurants. Both logos were positioned in the centre allowing the sunset background image to be seen. To show the stunning views of the beach from both restaurants.

Dean recently created an excellent animated logo for my website, Bude & Beyond ( What I never realised at the outset was how much time, effort, discussion, creativity and dedication goes into producing a logo. After an initial discussion, Dean created many versions, in different colour schemes and formats, which he also animated. He sought appropriate feedback and went the extra mile to ensure that the colours and design were absolutely spot on. I was very impressed at his determination to get it right and to re-create and adapt until both he and I were both very happy with the final result.

So, I’d say Dean’s major strength is communication. I’m not IT-focused, but I appreciate a good-looking website/logo, so it really helps that he is able to discuss ideas in a friendly and accessible way, without over-use of jargon. He explains things well, and will interpret ideas in a client-focused way. He is extremely responsive, so wait times are very short. He listens to his client and creates ideas based on what he hears/understands. He checks all along the way (wording, colours, images, positioning) and will ask: what if we try this? He is also very open to constructive comments. Therefore, he provides plenty of guided choice.

I’m rather proud to now have a Dean Wronowski animated logo already in use on my social media and ready for my website (currently undergoing a major revamp). Dean’s designs are his trademark. Fresh, colourful and lively, they always try to encompass the nature of the product he is working with.

He is a remarkable talent which Bude is fortunate to have
