When Michael, the owner of Portland-based CoopRising, called to tell me about his company and the product he needed a website designed for I was immediately on board. A fresh mango fruit puree sweetened with agave nectar and made in small batches in central Mexico. Committed to fair and respectful trade practices, he donates a percentage back to cooperative grower associations and their families.
The challenging part was he need a quick turnaround (one week!). Fortunately he had his content ready to go and some good photography to work with. Then left the design in my hands. My kind of client.
I prefer working on short deadlines. My adrenaline gets pumping and I love racing against the clock. Much better than a project that drags on for months.
The site launched last week and Buenísima Blends Mango Nectar will be available (starting in the Portland area) at grocery stores early this fall. Michael gave me a box to try and we used it to its full potential – making mango smoothies, mango ice cream and Jason put together a delicious marinade for grilled pork. Visit site
