. Web site for Mario’s Cafe, a traditional Italian family-run establishment in Kentish Town, North London.
Probably best summed up by local film maker Roland Denning. "It’s a meeting place for a community that ranges from plumbers to rock stars, from vagrants to families, a little island of resistance against the onslaught of corporate culture."
It’s famous too. Having been featured in a song of the same name by the British pop group Saint Etienne. It was also the place to be during the height of the Britpop phenomenon that gripped Camden Town. It’s been featured in the press and on TV and the cafe continues to attract visitors from all over the world.
The site aims to capture both the cafe’s rich history as well as the energy of the photographic exhibitions that are regularly shown within the cafe interiors.
For this very personal project I undertook the UI, UX and complete site build.
