And the winners are…

1. Tim Collins

This week’s Web Top 5 winner is photography portfolio website, Tim Collins. A website which is characterised by its heavy usage of imagery, Tim Collins remains on trend throughout the entirety of the site. With a strong, someone ‘hipster’ persona running throughout the website, the site makes bold choices in terms of colour scheme, whilst the barber theme is consistent throughout the website. The blog content itself is extremely interesting and has a personal feel, whilst being typically characterised by the high-quality imagery from each shoot.

2. Hunter Boots

Second on the Web Top 5 this week is another image-heavy site by Hunter Boots. Characterised by a tiled layout with high-quality imagery throughout, the site foregrounds its products with confidence. Overflowing with festive cheer, the site is a perfect example of a Christmas website. Colourful, vibrant and upmarket, the website is a wonderful advert for what is an excellent Christmas present. The use of video also helps to add to the site’s vibrancy.
