Our New Look Website for 2021
Three years ago in March 2018 I built a new website, and in March of 2021 I felt it was time for a change. I have been meaning to update the website, but I just couldn't find the right layout that I wanted.
So I hunted through the theme store and finally found one that works for me and hopefully works for you! Our site had been essentially the same with a few updates since 2018, so it was time for a change. And I found a layout that had the main features I wanted!
I wanted to improve your user experience and offer you some features like a search function at the top of the page as well as a trail of breadcrumbs for you to follow back to where you were. It can be so frustrating losing your way on a website. This should all help you to navigate the store. I also aesthetically wanted few more curved corners and a bit more style. I wanted you to be able to add to cart smoothly and also not lose your place along the way.
Some of what I will be focusing on will be:
- updating images
- adding in new category pages to help you navigate the site
- defining our brands more clearly with brand categories
- squaring those pesky rectangular photos
- reducing the size of the home-page
- improving the accessibility for mobile users
- designing new pages including a new "About" page
- updating our FAQ
I am also planning on writing more love letters (aka newsletters) to you and it's not all about the sales pitch! I am working on adding in more blogs, items of interest, some of my favourite accounts to follow etc as well.
