Cafe Lago

Nested on a corner of the Montlake neighborhood and serving classic Italian dishes, Cafe Lago is everyone’s ideal place to grab dinner. They were in need of a new responsive site that displayed off their delicious food, charming interior, and family style dining area.

My Role

I was tasked with taking this project from concept to completion. Along the way I designed wireframes, hyfy comps using Sketch and InVision, and communicated with developers to ensure the project met the deadline. The team included Andrew (Creative Director) and Brad (Lead Dev).

Goals of the project
  • Provide easy options to order online or make a reservation
  • Create an easy to navigate menu page
  • Integrate testimonials as part of the site to better tell the history of Cafe Lago

Cafe Lago menu

With the menu having quite a few different sections, adding an easy to navigate secondary nav is a nice way to keep related menu items together. Each section has the ability to have a little menu or expand with many subcategories. This approach kept the sections of Cafe Lago’s menu organized and intuitive.


Cafe Lago had a really quick turn around with a shoe string budget. Working on this project taught me how to meet tight deadlines while collaborating with teammates to ensure the highest quality of work.
