Sneak Peek at New Website for St. Louis Metro Construction Company

Posted on February 5, 2015

Visual Lure, in collaboration with Cohesion, is currently working on Holland Construction Services’ new website. Cohesion is a St. Louis, MO based strategic consulting firm and a full-service marketing agency, and Holland Construction Services is a top St. Louis metro east commercial contractor. Holland specializes in providing full-service construction services to commercial, educational, government, industrial, multi-family, recreational and religious organizations and businesses.

The new website is being built in WordPress utilizing a fully custom theme with a plethora of custom features. These include a leadership page where member’s photos are black and white, when selected, they turn to color and move to the foreground. A custom admin section is also being created so that the Holland team can easily add, edit and remove featured projects. The new site will be responsive so that users have a pleasant viewing experience no matter what type of device they are using to view the website.

Cohesion was responsible for the messaging, copywriting and the design of most of the main pages. We then took what they delivered, modified the design so that it could be converted to a responsive layout and we designed the rest of the site staying true to the provided aesthetic.

View the sample pages below, along with our initial proposed home page design (at the very bottom), and check back soon for the official launch.

Niche Photography Website Launch, Branding Package Update & Brochure Design

Posted on January 21, 2015

Visual Lure recently launched a new website for Niche Photography. Niche Photography is a St. Louis area wedding photographer specializing in portrait, baby and high school senior photography. They are located in Mascoutah, IL and service the entire St. Louis and St. Louis metro east area. In addition to their new website, we updated their identity package and designed a new pricing brochure for them.

The new website was built using a fully custom designed, search engine friendly, responsive WordPress theme with a multitude of cool effects. The new site features a “sticky” menu that always stays at the top of the page. The logo mark elegantly fades away allowing the menu bar to use less vertical space. Other features include an easily maintainable home page slideshow, a unique rollover-effect for recent post on the home page, and masonry style responsive galleries. Click here to visit Niche’s new website.

We also updated Niche’s visual branding package by switching his logo to all grey (the logo mark was originally a Tiffany’s colored teal blue). Niche felt this switch made the brand more neutral or more appealing to the masses.

We wrapped up all these upgrades with an engagement and wedding pricing brochure. They will hand these out to potential bride and grooms at local bridal shows.

Update: We recently received printed samples of the new brochure and had a chance to photograph them. They turned out fantastic!

Website Redesign for St. Louis based Professional Photography Consultant & Educator

Posted on May 18, 2012

Visual Lure has been helping Salvatore Cincotta build his brands from the beginning, including his photography company, his album line, his editing company and his professional photography consulting/education business, Behind The Shutter – which brings us to the new redesign.  Behind the Shutter will soon be changing its content/format into a digital interactive magazine. It will feature videos, industry insider’s best kept secrets, exclusive interviews along with Sal’s expert business advise. Sections of the magazine will be free with signup while other sections will require a reasonably priced upgrade to view.

Using design elements taken from the new magazine layout, the new website will be built in a custom designed WordPress theme along with custom PHP coding to make the site easier to maintain.

Below is a sneak peek at the new home page design. Check back soon for the new website launch.
