Development Project

Closed Loop Cooking

The Project

Closed Loop Cooking is a fantastic platform that provides information on sustainable, low-waste cooking and living. Hawnuh, the designer and site owner, is an amazing illustrator so she wanted to incorporate her illustrations into the site giving it a fun, vintage cookbook vibe.

On this site, I wanted to make sure that it would be very easy to add new content. I set up several templates for different kinds of content that could all be managed from the back-end.

On the previous site, recipes were managed with a plugin. It lacked a lot of design options and some functionality wasn’t available without a subscription that included a lot of unnecessary functionality. Instead, I created custom fields that would create the exact recipe view Hawnuh wanted while still being SEO friendly and able to generate rich pins on Pinterest.

Jenn is one of the best developers I've ever worked with! As a designer, it's challenging to find a talented dev who can bring my work to life without much guidance. She's timely on her deadlines, incredibly knowledgeable, and makes bringing a website to life a fun experience. Highly recommend!
