Café Parisian de Vancouver


A site for a fictional café in Gastown, Vancouver, this project arose from the desire to create a company with classical French aesthetics, while incorporating modern design elements. The combination evokes a fresh, elegant feel that remains simple and accessible. Large, high-contrast, colourful images paired with the stark white and grey block sections help to balance the site and encourage scrolling. Parallax and animated gifs keep the site trendy, while use of grids and tables lay out menu information in a clear and pleasing way.

The favicon was created to show a teacup, at the same time representing the French flag.

This site was created with the Resto framework from All photos are from and All content copyright Allyce Kranabetter.
