Georges At The Cove is a nationally acclaimed establishment, voted San Diego’s “Most Popular Restaurant” by Zagat; I am proud to mention they have been my client for 12 years. We just have launched their redesigned responsive website. As the amazing food imagined by Executive Chef Trey Foshee speaks for itself, one of the main objectives was to use large, appetizing photography assets and videos to immerse the visitor in the dining experience and to invite him to the table. I produced photography assets all these years for Georges. In addition, for the new website I have storyboarded, filmed and edited three short stories to depict the three different physical levels of the restaurant, delivering three different experiences: California Modern, high-end, fine dining cuisine on the first floor; a more casual bistro experience with George’s Bar, a local favorite on the second floor. Finally, Ocean Terrace with its breathtaking view nominated “World’s Hottest Rooftop Restaurants” by Travel+Leisure… Bon appétit!
