Nailed it / Failed it is a new periodical blog of website reviews that’s being created at WCB. Not only will these blog posts bring you the latest in innovative and creative design but it will also show you some examples of what not to do. First topic Coffee websites.
Fueling ambition with caffeine can be a risky move.
Coffee, a quest for caffeine junkies that are craving their next fix of roasted beans. Quick quack that speedy feeling is whack, the need for speed and the fuel for greed. Some of today’s designs have hit the mark; some are so far from it one could say they are on a different playing field. A slumber snapped out of being, by a warm rich aroma of Arabica. Below you will find 8 stunning and well thought out web site from the Coffee world. You will also be presented with 2 that are terrible.
Note: as is known websites are constantly changing an evolving, therefor I have displayed screen shots of each site. The screen shots are also live links to each specific site. But as you may find as time passes the sites will change, this is a significant point, as this blog post is being written, the Christmas shopping spree is on; promotions and special offers; many site will be slightly different or completely revamped in the new year.
8 from the great, these next sites have dynamic, contemporary and cleanly delivered designs. The sites have clear and distinct navigation and are laid out in a tasteful manner; the color schemes work out nicely and the site all bare a distinct call to action.
Simple, luxurious and tasteful; Verve coffee has a distinct look and a retro feel. Its logos and site design go hand in hand and add to the almost nostalgic mystique to the end users curiosity about the products on offer.
Following the flow of the 2012 minimalist cubism that is gaining mass popularity; this web site hits all the design essential for the year. Large Crisp fonts and a well-developed stick menu bar the site has some great design work behind it.
Great design with a rustic look, suited fonts, clean logos and image conception. This site is refined and remains up to design standards regardless it’s coming out of 2010.
2 to too the loo. These site, are in my option a joke without a punch line. Poorly designed and executed with a clear disregard for the end user.
Selling some of the world’s most expensive coffee Catass has fail to create a web site up to its products standards, the site looks unfinished, the lines don’t flow. The use of far too many different fonts gives it a feel of a geocities first web site attempt by a 9 year old. The general layout is poor, I feel this site could be a lot better.
