Behindtheshutter.com WordPress Web Design Sneak Peek

Posted on January 22, 2014

Visual Lure is currently working on an all new Behind The Shutter website for Salvatore Cincotta. Behind the Shutter is a free online photography training and educational website and home of the free online Shutter Magazine. This will be the third version we have designed for them.  The new website will once again be built in WordPress, but this time with a custom responsive WordPress theme.

Responsive web design, a relatively new way to design websites, uses one website/content source but displays it differently depending on what type of device you are viewing the site from.  Therefore, no need for a second mobile friendly website. This is all done through cascading styling sheets (CSS).  Having a responsive site has also become an important ranking factor for SEO as Google, and other search engines, view it as being the best practice for an optimal viewing experience.

Below is a sneak peek of the new squeaky clean design.  Please check back soon for the official launch.

Visual Lure Launches New Website for a St. Louis Based Photo/Wedding Album Company

Posted on March 6, 2012

Visual Lure recently launched The Signature Collection website.  The Signature Collection is an online photo/wedding album company that was the brainchild of Salvatore Cincotta.  Sal is an international award winning photographer who felt the market was lacking a user friendly photo album solution, so we helped him develop a website that was easy to use, easy to order from and easy to upload images to once the order was placed.  We modeled many of the store’s features after Apple’s platform with real time pricing, sliding previews and more.  The front-end of the website is built in WordPress so that their staff can easily maintain those sections, and the store, along with the Virtual Album Builder were built in PHP with a fully custom admin section.  The Virtual Album Builder allows registered users to build their albums online with a preview of the product and real time pricing.

Check out the new website at www.scalbums.com.

You must be a professional photographer to register and order their products. (We also designed the logo)

Logo & Web Design for St. Louis Area Based Titanium Fastener Manufacturer/Store

Posted on January 12, 2012

Visual Lure was recently contracted to design a logo and website for RaceTech Titanium, an Edwardsville, IL based company that sells Titanium fasteners for motorcycles, race cars, dragster, mountain bikes and more. The final logo is show below, the large logo on top, along with some of our other logo design options.

Since the mass majority of their clients are in some type of racing industry, the logo design they chose features a “finish flag” in the circular motion in which it is waved at the end of a race.

Logo Design for a Collection of High-End Photography Albums

Posted on October 3, 2011

Once again Salvatore Cincotta Photography has turned to Visual Lure to design a new logo.  They are in the process of launching a new collection of high-end photography albums.  The new album line will be called The Signature Collection.  The only direction we received from Sal where these five words: elite, rich, boutique, modern and artisan.

I imagine the logo will be embossed into leather, possibly even stamped into metals or carved into wood, so the logo needs to be simple.  Below are our initial proposed logo designs.  The top left logo features a stack of photo albums that create the letter “S”.  The top right logo features a “SC” monogram which stands for both Signature Collection & Salvatore Cincotta.  The bottom left logo features a stack of three albums, the top two create the letter “S” and the bottom one creates the letter “C”.  The bottom right logo simply features an elegant script font.  Check back soon to see where these initial logo designs take us.
