Most of the websites we design in Swansea are for businesses that are proud of their roots and want to broadcast their location. This may be because they are local businesses with a premesis in Swansea, or because they are a national business that wishes to differentiate themselves by focussing on what makes them special.
One of the best ways to tell website visitors where you are from is to include images of iconic scenery in your website design. Luckily for Swansea businesses there are many different wonderful parts of Swansea heritage, landscape and culture that can be included. Here are a few ideas for some scenic shots for Swansea businesses that want to highlight their location:
Many businesses are now based in SA1 and Swansea Marina. This area has a vibe all of its own. The old dock buildings blend with the new flats and tower blocks, all set around the water, fishing boats and yachts. This area has some perfect imagery to include in a Swansea website design for city centre based businesses that want to portray an urban, up-and-coming atmosphere.
If you are based in Swansea city centre and are in the retail industry then a picture of Castle Square is perfect for your website. Castle Square is in the heart of the Swansea retail district and has the very recognisable fountains and castle so website visitors know exactly where you are.
Mumbles lighthouse features in the branding of many Swansea-based businesses and rightly so. It is a wonderful building that is full of local history and sits perfectly against the back drop of the dramatic coastline.
We must not forget Swansea’s best known feature – Swansea Bay. The long sweep of the bay is what draws many residents and businesses to Swansea. There aren’t many towns or cities in the country with such wonderful sea views. An image of Swansea Bay in your website design will leave people in no doubt that you have a business in Swansea.
Only 30 minutes from Swansea city centre, Rhossili Bay is the most famous part of the Gower coastline. It is regularly voted as one of the top beaches in the world and draws visitors from all over the globe. The unique attractions of the Gower coast set Swansea apart from every other city in the country, as no other city can boast such incredible countryside on its doorstep. Rhossili Bay is instantly recognisable and will place your business on the map.
