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.

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 launched for St. Louis Metro East Auctioneering & Real Estate Company

Posted on April 28, 2014

Visual Lure recently re-designed and launched AdamsAuctions.com. Adam’s Auction and Real Estate Services, Inc. is a full-service auctioneering and real estate company located in the St. Louis Metro East, serving Illinois, Missouri and nationwide. Their auctioning categories include real estate, estates & consignments, bankruptcies & business liquidations, railroad/industrial and charity events.

Adam’s recently had their website re-designed by another company just this year, but it could not be found on search engines, it did not match their brand, and customers complained about it not being mobile and user-friendly. So Adam’s Auctions contracted Visual Lure to get it done right.  The new website (built in WordPress) is now simple to use, a responsive design that makes the site look and function great on desktop computers, tablets and smart phones, and it ties seamlessly into their very complex auctioning software making it easy for staff to maintain.

If you don’t want to have to re-design your website right after you’ve had it re-designed, then GET IT DONE RIGHT THE FIRST TIME by giving Visual Lure a call today.  All our websites are search engine friendly & optimized, responsive, aesthetically pleasing and quick loading for a great overall user-experience.
