Website of the Week: Mexigo

This week's website of the week goes to Mexigo. Mexigo are a Mexican fast-food chain, with restaurants in Southampton, Bournemouth and one about to open in Poole.

Mexigo is a local business to us, which means we love to see it thrive.

Their policy is simple. Buy fresh, Cook fresh, Serve fresh….and that’s what they do. They purchase their meat daily from local suppliers that only buy from Farms that meet Farm Assured Standards. It is free from colourings, artificial flavourings and genetic modifications. They don’t do that stuff, nor do they do frozen, It’s always fresh.

Senior Project Manager Lanara started by creating a fully responsive one page website, using parallax scrolling and image hover overs. The back to top arrow features a nice slide transition so that people can easily navigate the site on all devices.

The website uses the clients branding which is a vivid bright pink and black colour scheme. The imagery is all of the clients own, which works really well in representing their product and what they do.

The website features social media icons so that people can visit the pages. Being active on Social Media can help you with search engine rankings. The website also features delivery information links, job vacancy information and franchising opportunities.

The font used is easy to read, and very clean looking. Google fonts like these make a change from the standard web safe fonts like Arial or Times New Roman. A softer, lighter font is very much on trend at the moment, and makes it look sleek on mobile and tablet devices too.

The website has some great call to actions, including pop up forms for people to fill out in order to get in touch. It's important that people feel that they can interact with your brand and get a response to any queries or questions they may have.

The website also passes Google's mobile-friendly test with flying colours, meaning that the website is responsive to the device it's being viewed on. This is a must when it comes to people viewing the website on the go!

The client kindly awarded us 5 out of a possible 5 stars and said: "Toolkit is very flexible and very responsive."
