I read an article this morning that Yuppiechef has been named the best e-commerce site in South Africa for 2013. There was actually a conference to determine the winner.
The last few weeks I had quiet a few request about eCommerce websites , Now I must admit I never done one but I have been hard at work figuring it out. If responsive websites was the buzz word in 2012 then eCommerce is def the buz word in 2013. I had a look at Yuppiechef and the interesting thing is that its not a very fancy site , its actually very simple which brings me back to what I always tell my clients , a good website is more about content than design. Simplicity is key and the customer must never need to look hard for content. Your site layout is extremely important ,the info must flow naturally and the functionality must work 100% . This is what makes a great site in my opinion and this is what we strive for at Sparty Designs. Below is the full list of winners and runner ups of the eCommerce awards.
