My favourite websites

I am passionate about the area that I live in, and have decided to showcase some of the lovely businesses that are in the Neath area. Every week, I will showcase a local business and say what I like about them. It may be that they have an awesome website,or maybe it's a social media post that has grabbed my attention. Whatever it is that I've found, I will showcase it on my blog and social media posts.

For my first local business showcase, I have chosen 'Baroc' in Neath and their website. What do I like about it? I love the overall look and feel of the website. There is clear branding and consistent use of fonts throughout. There is clear contact information on the header and footers. Products are really easy to find, and there's a nice balance of image/ text.

It's a busy website with lot's of products for sale, so it's important that the customer can easily navigate the site.

Is there room for improvement? If I had to be super critical, I'd consider making the font larger and putting the physical address of the shop more prominent on the home page. I'd also add a 'home' button to the top menu system so that people can revert to this page from anywhere in the site.

Great job done by the team at Baroc in Neath! If you're ever in Neath, why not pop in for a browse?
