My intent was to design a modern and user-friendly experience while still celebrating the props that Annie Atkins so thoughtfully designed.
This clip demonstrates the reservation request flow. As users scroll down and navigate through the site, the nav bar element becomes a flyout. Thus, users are encouraged to make a reservation at any point while visiting the site.
