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.

Posted on November 15, 2013

Visual Lure recently completed this “design only” project for a Colorado based programming/web development company.  The website is for a WordPress inventory plugin that acts like a shopping cart, but without the e-commerce functionality. We were simply contracted to design and layout three main pages and they would take it from there.  Here are those pages:
