Balanced Care for Women WordPress Website Redesign

Posted on April 25, 2016

WordPress website Balanced Care for Women

Balanced Care for Women is a team of three OBGYN specialist in St. Louis, MO made up of Laura A. Baalmann, M.D., Holly Hiroko Kodner, M.D. and Donna N. Senciboy, D.O., M.H.A. Their offices are located right off of I-270 on Olive Boulevard.

Balanced Care for Women came to Visual Lure when they wanted to redesign their existing website. Their old website was dated and non-mobile friendly which provided a bad user experience. Visual Lure’s new design was built using a fully custom, search engine optimized, responsive designed WordPress theme.

The new site now renders beautifully on all phones, tablets and desktop computers. New features include a form to schedule appointments, an e-commerce section that allows customer to pay their invoices securely online, a custom admin section to manage staff profiles and a sticky header. The sticky header keeps the logo and navigation at the top of the screen, no matter how far down you scroll, always making it easy to navigate the site. We also added elegant CSS animation effects to give the site a sense of sophistication.

Sneak Peek at Visual Lure’s New WordPress Website Design

Posted on March 8, 2015

One of our most difficult clients to please has always been ourselves.  We have had the same website since 2004 due to multiple reasons. 1. We have been so busy taking care of our clients that it’s been difficult to find the time to fully take care of our own needs. 2. We as designers, find it hard to design for ourselves because we are so critical of our own work, plus we constantly like to explore new design aesthetics, and 3. Web design trends are constantly evolving and we find ourselves always wanting to utilize the latest and greatest ones.

However, there comes a time when things must be done – and for us – that time was now. What truly motivated us was the announcement from Google that on April 21st of 2015 they will be releasing a new algorithm that will effect search results for websites that are not mobile friendly. As of January 2014 all the websites we design and develop for our clients have been done so utilizing responsive (mobile friendly) website design, but our site has yet to be completely converted.

Responsive web design is the practice of designing and developing websites so that they automatically transform to fit the screens of the devices they are being viewed from, including desktop computers, tablets and smart phones. This technique ensures that users have a great user experience no matter how they are viewing a website. For instance, font sizes may increase on the tablet and mobile versions so that users don’t have to zoom in to easily read text, and layouts may shift so that the content remains logically structured while increasing or decreasing in size.

Our current blog is responsive, but the rest of our website is not. We currently rank on the first page of Google for all our targeted search terms and we don’t want to take the risk of dropping due to this update. With that being said, here is a little sneak peek at some of our unused designs over the years along with our new design that is currently under development.  Our new site will be built in WordPress utilizing a fully custom theme. The new theme will feature custom admin sections making it easy for us to update our portfolios. It will also have tons of cool CSS effects and animations. Look for the launch of our new website coming soon!

Custom WordPress Development for St. Louis Wedding Planner

Posted on February 27, 2015

Visual Lure had the pleasure of working with Kristin Weis (again), and Cheree Berry Paper, to develop Kristin Ashley Events’ new custom WordPress website. Kristin Ashley Events is a premier St. Louis, MO full service wedding and event planning company that provides proposal planning, full wedding coordination, month of coordination along with à la carte options. Without doubt, they are one of the best wedding planning companies in the greater St. Louis area.

The fine designers at Cheree Berry Paper provided the new design and Visual Lure took those comps and turned them into a fully functioning responsive WordPress website. The new website features swaying roll-over frames on the home page and custom admin sections for the portfolio and press pages making it easy for Kristin to maintain. Visual Lure also designed the new contact and blog pages staying true to the aesthetic we were provided. This will be the third website we’ve developed for KAE.

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!

Custom WordPress Website for St. Louis & Illinois Window & Door Company

Posted on November 14, 2014

Visual Lure just helped Wilke Window & Door launch a new custom WordPress website. Wilke is a window and door company with showrooms in Shiloh, IL, Fenton, MO and St. Charles, MO. They serve the entire St. Louis Metropolitan area and all of Southern Illinois. In addition to windows and doors, they also carry columns, copper roofs, cupolas, fire place mantels, locksets, shutters & siding, skylights, staircase railing and trim & mouldings. They’ve been in business for over 50 years with a simple business model based on offering high quality products and treating customers right (our favorite types of business to work with).

The new website was built in WordPress using a fully custom designed theme. WordPress will allow Wilke to edit and maintain the entire website in-house (with less than a couple hours of training). The site is responsive, rendering beautifully on all types of devices, which provides for a great user experience. It also features a sliding Request a Quote form, a custom testimonials widget, an accordian showroom contact section and more. In addition to web design and development, we also provided search engine optimization (SEO) services.

Below is the new home page design. Please visit www.wilkewindow.com to view the new website.

New Website Design for St. Louis Area Breast Cancer Charity

Posted on March 25, 2014

Swing Fore Hope, a St. Louis metro east 501c3 charity dedicated to finding a cure for breast cancer, recently contracted Visual Lure to re-design their website.  Since its creation in 2007, Swing Fore Hope has collectively donated over $250,000 to the fight against breast cancer by funding cancer research and helping families with financial struggles due to this horrible disease.

Even though their existing website was created in WordPress, the way it was set up makes it difficult for our client to update.  We will be building the new site with custom admin sections solving their current issues, adding e-commerce so donors and tournament participants can easily donate and pay on-line, and we will be converting the website into a responsive design to ensure a pleasant user experience on ALL devices such as desktop computers, tablets and smart phones.

Below is our proposed home page for the new website design. Check back soon for updates and the official re-launch.  In the meantime, check out their existing website at swingforehope.org.

On a personal note, my mother is a breast cancer survivor, and we are always happy to help clients fighting for such a great cause!
