Chef Database

Chef Database is a specialist job portal and community website connecting chefs with opportunities in the hospitality industry.

The Brief

The way the catering industry recruits is in need of an overhaul. Chef Database needs to act as an efficient platform for both chefs and companies looking to employ chefs, to enable them to communicate effectively without the need for expensive third-party recruiters.

The Platform

We selected Drupal to build the website on, as it needed to feature two types of users and some robust search functionality. It also needed to be easy to use, quick loading and easy to manage. Drupal fulfilled this criteria, and so we created an entirely custom theme on which to build the Chef Database website.

The Brand

We designed a logo along with guidelines on colour scheme and typography for Chef Database, resulting in a combination of brand assets which come together to form a rustic, homely and memorable brand identity.

The Outcome

We created a visual identity and functional, responsive website for Chef Database. The result being a community-driven jobs board that connects chefs with prospective employers.


It has been a pleasure working with both Matt & Will. They have provided exceptional design and development and their ideas have helped shaped our business you see live today. They are both very attentive and worked hard in ensuring all our objectives were met, whilst also dealing with our constant barrage of emails!
