Welcome back and sorry for abandoning you. Between a holiday in the sun and a VIP 70th birthday, we’ve been locked away putting the final touches to our new look site and HERE IT IS!
It’s been a labour of love getting the site to this stage; every image had to be re-sized, all our blog posts have been edited and shuffled into their rightful place, not to mention the hours spent to-ing and fro’ing with a very patient graphic designer and a clever web developer. It’s been well worth it and we’re thrilled with our new look.
Why the change? To be honest we’d fallen out of love with the bubblegum Barkarama of old, and if we didn’t love it, we’d have a hard job convincing you to. As cute as it was, we felt the site’s design, which we first shared with you 18 months ago, no longer suited the pup culture and modern dog lifestyle posts we’ve enjoyed sharing with you to date nor were they always delivered to you in the most pet-owning, friendly manner. Also Basil the Boston Terrier wasn’t in our life when we first launched and he's the apple of our eye, it was important that he had a more integral part in the blog - spot the Boston Terrier silhouette!
With this in mind we’ve kissed goodbye to our pink paws, candy stripes and dizzy layout and said hello to a cleaner, simpler, easier-to-navigate Barkarama. We’ve still got our retro Americana vibe but we’ve given the logo and colour scheme a shake-up switching to blue with pops of lime. Knowing that it’s more than just our looks that you’re after, we’ve also made a few editorial tweaks and additions including:
Our new look has also given us the confidence to be more social so you can also find us on: Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest, as well as @BasilBarkarama on Twitter.
We look forward to your next visit and hope to see you back here very soon.
Alex & Basil
