Peter Bakes

A baking recipe website for GBBO winner 2020



The client

Peter Sawkins is a passionate baker and is the youngest winner of Great British Bake Off. He has released a couple of cookbooks already detailing his tastiest recipes.

The goal

Peter has over 250k followers on Instagram and he needed a space to write and publish more in-depth recipes for people to enjoy. Peter approached me to create a design for his website and add the functionality he needed with room to add more functionality as his website grows in the future. Since Peter has a lot of recipe categories, he needed a fast website that separated each recipe into multiple categories with ease of navigation. Notably, the website had to be mobile responsive as the majority of people would view the website through a mobile device reading the recipes.



Working closely with Peter, I came up with a lighter design for the website using colours from his new book. I have created a recipe catalogue page containing every recipe where the categories are easily accessible from the navigation menu and sidebar sections. The website is also extremely fast and navigable on all screen sizes keeping viewers engaged. I’ve also included recipe cards on each recipe page with print functionality. In addition, I’ve added search functionality to the header that instantly loads the search results making it easy for viewers to find the recipes they want. The end result is a website that turned out extremely well, and Peter can’t wait to start adding his delicious recipes for everyone to enjoy!

This is a concept project that was created as part of an exercise to show my clients what I can do for them. Therefore, this website wasn’t created by request, but as a means to showcase a dynamic blog website that can easily be updated from the backend.
