It’s Wednesday again, which means it’s time to showcase another great site. This week we are spotlighting Journey’s Coffee House, which is designed not only as a place to get food, but also as a gathering place. The site transforms one of Webs’ simpler templates, into something as chic as the coffee house itself. Take a look for yourself:
In particular, the site effectively uses Webs features such as:
- Locations App to display a map of their physical location and provide customers with an easy way to reach the location
- Calendar App to display upcoming events in a concise and organized way
- Photos App to share pictures with potential customers, showcasing what the coffee house is actually about
While there are a lot of things that can be learned from this website, the most important is that of simplicity. Journey’s Coffee House is the perfect example of a site where less is more. Often times, companies will try to enhance their site by cramming as much information onto each page as possible. But this site finds a good balance of information and simplicity. Each of the pages of the website contains useful and relevant information to visitors, but is written concisely so as not to overwhelm the site.
Another key tip to take away from this site is their customization. For example, they changed the header image to one that is not only applicable to their company, but is also of high quality and is visually appealing. The overall tone of the website mimics the warm and inviting nature of a coffee house, through the use of soft and neutral colors. Would you like to edit your website header/logo? Learn how.
