Delmonte.com Website Information Architecture

Objective
Redesign Del Monte’s consumer-facing web site so that it would effectively communicate a
new brand identity, increase engagement and improve usability.

Concept

Launch a new brand identity of “Plant the Seed,” along with a new mantra of “Let’s eat
better, do better and live better” through a robust and empowering website. This concept
positions Del Monte as more than just a seller of canned vegetables, but an active
advocate of healthy living.

Solution

Everything about the Del Monte web site was completely reworked – the strategy,
architecture, content, design and development. A new lifestyle section was added to increase engagement, along with interactive pieces aimed to educate the user on healthy
lifestyle choices. Product and Recipe searches were added to improve user experience.
“You may also like” and cross-promotional areas make it easy for users to find related
content.
