There are many websites on the internet, spanning businesses and brands from large to small. When you visit Nike’s or Pepsi’s website, you expect the their sites to be polished, an impressive experience worthy of the popular brands they represent. Typically, Internet users expect much less when it comes to website design for small businesses, often ignoring glaring errors or flaws in design just as long as they find the information they seek. However, even if you’ve got a website for your small business or lesser-known brand, you shouldn’t slack on quality just because you’re small fry – go the extra mile and make sure your site impresses visitors, even if they don’t expect it.
Website Design From Small Businesses Who Didn’t Slack
Following are six unexpectedly attractive websites that small businesses and brands have used effectively.
1. JM & SONS
This site is simplistically elegant. The pages are full of graphics of the handcrafted furniture that is made by JM&SONS. A lot of white space remains on their order page, making a clear delineation between available products. Their About page is not cluttered and they tell the story of their business in two videos. Page text is kept to a minimum until you get to their News page, which is text rich. This is a very attractive website design that provides marketing of beautiful furniture in a clean, easy to use environment.
Simple, informative and almost completely graphic, this site displays information on the use, growth and waste of food across the globe. It is not a site that sells anything or that wants you to join anything, nor does it provide any means of interaction. It is built to provide information only. What it does provide is data in a clear format that has you clicking from one page to the next.
Product specific, Juliana bicycles is a very eye-catching site that uses an attractive website design. The large high-resolution photography fills the page and makes you want to be there with them on their biking adventures. Their product description pages are just as clean, using uncluttered photos of their bicycles with only one per page that includes the product description in an easy to read format.
If this site does not make you hungry, then you have just eaten, otherwise you will want to jump the next flight to Buenos Aires to dine. Simple with very little verbiage, the pictures are amazing. Their menu page is also simple, with brief explanations of their offerings. This attractive website speaks for itself graphically. If only we could add aromas to websites!
