Rebuilding this website was a challenge, balancing our design sense with some zany suggestions from La Palapa management and their marketing expert.
First, we created Flash elements for the home page. The stars twinkle and the neon pulses in the banner, while the food images fade in/out, giving visitors an enticing glimpse of La Palapa's menu.
Still, we kept our Flash "conservative", so the marketing text doesn't get ignored. Remember -- a website gets 60 seconds to make its point.
Next, we went with cartoony navigation (see those chiles?), and kept the layout loose. Finally, our photography highlighted their colorful food and entertainment, adding a professional touch that always helps online credibility.
We think the design works, and our clients agree.
