Koox is Lon­don’s first take­away cre­ated by Miche­lin-star chefs. The com­bi­na­tion of vivid il­lus­tra­tions by Jeanne Morel and Tris­tan Dion with sub­tle par­al­lax ef­fects cre­ates a tempt­ing of­fer­ing. Blue Cheese Stu­dio has cre­ated an en­tic­ing web­site that’s sim­ple to use.

Where you would tra­di­tion­ally ex­pect a PDF menu, you are pre­sented with an in­ter­ac­tive ar­ray of dishes. The com­bi­na­tion of pho­tog­ra­phy and il­lus­tra­tions gives a clean fin­ish, cap­tur­ing the tone of the restau­rant and the qual­ity of the food.

Per­for­mance has been con­sid­ered through­out, with WordPress REST API utilised to re­trieve data in JSON for­mat. This avoids load­ing un­nec­es­sary el­e­ments, pro­vid­ing a smooth user ex­pe­ri­ence. Im­ages are also loaded in dif­fer­ent sizes de­pend­ing on the res­o­lu­tion, so help­ing to cut load times.

Tex­turePacker pro­vides a fur­ther per­for­mance boost, be­ing used to cre­ate op­ti­mised spritesheets for many of these vis­ual as­sets. Li­braries used in devel­op­ment in­clude Light.js, a cus­tom frame­work based on web-com­po­nents by Nico­las Ri­ciotti, one of the de­vel­op­ers on the project.
