New Auckland Web Design company gets global recognition

Foodlovers.co.nz, a 'foodie' website developed by Quirk Web Design for Auckland based foodie Helen Jackson, was launched with delicious success this month. The site gained international recognition when it was handpicked from 1300 new international sites for the Yahoo New site of the Day listings.

Hits to the site skyrocketed overnight as USA visitors woke up and logged on.

The site features over 500 recipes in its searchable database, using fresh, simple, New Zealand based ingredients. It was designed to complement Helen Jackson's radio show, TV appearances, and many news and magazine features.

The site was developed to be fast loading, to work on most browsers and computers, to be highly visually appealing, and to offer a quick and easy way for visitors to search the recipe database of over 500 recipes. Quirk used PHP/MySQL for the recipe database and search, which makes it fast to load. Web based administration sections were created, making it simple to add or edit recipes.

The site has been a resounding success. It was featured as New Site of the Day on Yahoo, Featured Site of the Week on NZCity.co.nz, and was also recently featured in Netguide magazine.
