Our Friends at foodconnect.com have a new layout

I have posted about the awesomeness of www.foodconnect.com before (check it out HERE), but wanted to post again as things have changed on their website.

First and foremost, it is crisper and cleaner.  What I mean by that is, the site is easier on the eyes, more intuitive, but still has a great deal of information.  It’s just easier to navigate through all the greatness!  I think that many sites run into problems because they have such a variety of information to offer-sometimes it’s hard to categorize things correctly so that the site is user-friendly.

I think that Foodconnect.com has figured out a proper way of grouping the many aspects of the site.  They have a section for Recipes, Restaurants, Cookbooks, Articles and Member Reviews.  I feel that each section is separated nicely by colored borders.  You eyes have a place to rest in the website so as not to get too bombarded all at once.  I don’t know about you, but I find myself leaving some websites in a matter of 30 seconds because I don’t know where I want to click first OR I don’t even know where to click.  I feel that Foodconnect’s new layout avoids information overload by using imagery instead of text.  That’s a plus in my mind.

As a member, the log in section is super easy to find, if you want to become a member, it’s not tough to see where to register.  All good for everyone involved.

Foodconnect managed to simplify their design without simplifying their content.  Three cheers for them!
