In this new, monthly recurring series, we will present to you a website made with Xara Web Designer. The websites featured may vary in range from businesses (restaurant, society, beauty salon) or just a website for mere hobby purposes. With our What You See Is What You Get (WYSIWYG) interface, anyone can design their own website. No technical knowledge such as HTML is needed. This is especially helpful for beginners. At the same time, the software offers enough functionality for advanced users.
The website of ‘Laberinto Art&deco’ from Mexico is the first featured website. The index page looks inviting and professional. The mouse-over effect makes browsing easy and clearly marks that the images are click-able and hence there’s more information awaiting the visitor. We added a tutorial on how to get the mouse-over effect at the end of this article. The website uses a lot of images. For an art & deco business, images say more than a thousand words. It’s better to show your products than to describe them – right?
A contact form is also present on the website, under the ‘Contacto’ button. Next to telephone, e-mail and fax the owner also implemented a Google Maps widget, making it easier for customers to locate their business. On top of that, potential customers can also take a look at Labertino’s portfolio and clients. Doing business over the internet is getting more popular by the day. Labertino Art & deco seem to be aware of this. After all, your website is your online business card.
