Website Redesign Project: Pueblo Viejo Grill Mexican Food Restaurant

Website Redesign Project: Pueblo Viejo Grill Mexican Food Restaurant

By on Oct 14, 2013 in Blog, Portfolio, Web Design, Website Redesign

Sometimes a complete website redesign is not always a good idea for your site unless you will be adding substantial value for your web visitors or if the design is very outdated. In the case of Pueblo Viejo Grill Mexican Restaurant, both were the cases. Pueblo Viejo Grill’s (PVG) original website was designed a few years back, and at the time, it only required a simple one page layout for their single Indio California location. Now that PVG has added a second location in Palm Desert, the time was right to come up with a new website design layout that would encompass what PVG was all about. And that would be, their authentic Mexican food. With a big photo slider top and center, their Mexican dishes are the stars of this new site. There’s no way that you will not want to eat at Pueblo Viejo Grill once you see all the delicious food on their website. Another must have feature that will add value for their website visitors is the blog. The blog will feature information about their dishes, events and other articles of interest for their target audience. Web content marketing will play a big hand with their new site as will social media in order to spread the word to more people about Pueblo Viejo Grill. As you can see from the picture below, the new site is a big step up from their previous website. The site will feature photos of their actual Mexican food, drinks and the restaurants, as well as an area at the bottom that lists their current special offers and events. Expect the new redesigned website to launch toward the end of November. You can view their current site at www.puebloviejogrill.com. Does your business website need a new look?

Website Design for Actors: Ed Diaz – Film, Television and Voice Over

Website Design for Actors: Ed Diaz – Film, Television and Voice Over

By on Apr 10, 2013 in Blog, Portfolio, Web Design, Website Redesign, WordPress

As an actor, having a website is essential. It’s a great way to display your resume, headshots and contact information. Ed Diaz realized this and took the first steps toward having his own website by registering his domain name and signing up for web hosting himself. But the next step was unclear to him. He wanted a basic site that would allow him to tell the world who he was and how to get a hold of him, but he did not know anything about web design or developing. That’s when he contacted JL Designs. The web hosting company that he signed up with offered WordPress, which is a content management system (CMS). WordPress is a very user friendly platform, but to the beginner, all the options can be a little  confusing. We installed WordPress for him and completely set it up so that he did not have to worry about any of the settings. His budget was very small, so we helped him select and install a ready made WordPress template theme instead of creating one from scratch. Ready made WordPress templates may be fine for basic sites, but they lack the individuality of a customized theme that is designed with the customer in mind. Therefore, we would not usually recommend these ready made templates unless you’re budget does not permit for a customized site. Once the new site was setup, we loaded in basic content that the client provided for us which consisted of his resume, headshots, contact information and even a few of the movie posters from the movies he appeared in. Ed Diaz has made several appearances in Film, Television, Commercials as well as performed Voice Overs for several projects. You can view Ed’s actor website and professional resume at...
