WordPress Web Site – Cox Photo

Tuesday, December 3rd, 2013

WordPress Web Site - Cox Photography
Mojoe.net has launched a new WordPress web site for Patrick Cox Photography. Mojoe.net is very honored to launch www.coxphotography.net. Not only did we consult with Patrick on the development of his site in WordPress but this site is  a fully responsive WordPress web site but with an added twist.

The images on the home page fill the screen up no matter what the device: desktop, tablet or mobile phone. The site and the images are optimized for improved performance on mobile devices like tablets and phones. Patrick wanted a site that would not only be easy to update by using WordPress as his Content Management System but wanted a site that would show the beauty, technique and creativity that he puts into each and every shot.

We customize the site to display full screen images on any page of the site but we also customized the WordPress login screen especially for Patrick Cox Photography. This site has been developed with its own unique navigation for the home page and draws upon a plugin that has been customized to deliver the experience that Patrick Cox Photography wanted to achieve when visitors come to his web site.

Cox Photography is the premier photographer in Greenville, South Carolina and has been published in major magazine and publications.

Responsive WordPress Site

Thursday, June 27th, 2013

What is a responsive WordPress site? Responsive designed web sites are becoming all the rage. Its basically a site that scales to fit the device that is viewing the web site. You dont have to have multiple version of your site. You have one version of your site. Having a responsive WordPress site means not only will your site adjust accordingly to the device that is viewing the site but you can also update the site via the dashboard and it will update all versions. Why you ask?

The reason is simple. A Responsive WordPress site is controlled by the Cascading Style Sheet or CSS for short. This one page of code controls the look, feel, colors, fonts, and how the site looks on multiple devices. And now everyone is developing responsive web sites. Some are content management systems and some are not. At Mojoe.net we have been developing all of our responsive sites in either WordPress or Drupal. We make sure to custom code all of our sites, so you are not getting a template. You are getting a one-of-a-kind site that is responsive. Not sure exactly what we mean by Responsive then check out this article we wrote.

Here are some Responsive WordPress web sites that we have recently developed some our still in production and others have already been launched:

Designing and Developing a web site | Web Design Greenville, SC

Friday, June 17th, 2011

So what happens when you design and develop a web site?

Well, there are quite a few steps that happen when developing and designing a web site. So, we are going to take you through the process step by step with a real live client. (Yes, the client is actually real.

First, we begin by having a two hour discovery meeting with the client to listen to what the client needs, wants, and would like to have happen with their web site. During this meeting we ask incisive questions and develop a list of services that will need to be performed in order for client to receive the web site that he/she would like. In the midst of this process we educate our clients about web design, programming, search engine optimization, and all aspects of web development.

So enough about the process lets actually start off with our client which is www.mysolor.com and our contact is Alex Swire-Clark. Alex has come to us to re-design and develop their web site. So we have already meet with Alex Swire-Clark and discussed their site. During that meeting we spoke about what he would like the site to do. What goals they would like to eventually achieve with their site as well as what functions they would like the site to perform. (You can break a web site down into 4 parts; one is the design of the site, two is the structure of the site, three is the behavior of the site, and four is the SEO and Social integration of the web site.) We also discussed content management system and educated him on the difference between two platforms Dot Net Nuke and WordPress. (During this meeting we filled out our Creative Strategy with Alex so we could get a clear understanding of his wants and needs.) While we filled out the Creative Strategy we also educated Alex on each step of the process everything from colors, pictures, text to responsive design .

Once our meeting was finished we sent Alex an email letting him know what we heard during the meeting, after receiving his reply we filled out our estimate proposal and sent that over to Alex. We then concluded our contract with Alex and have begun the development of his web site.
So what’s next?…………………..to be continued.

Here is the initial design of the web site for www.mysolor.com
