TheArlingtonTheatre.com is pretty much our flagship website here at In Color. This site garners well over 300k page-views per year, and it is adorned with a litany of beautiful photography from In Color principal, A. Arthur Fisher.
This website is also an example of a project whereby it's banner advertising pays for the project development and management. Although it is truly a labor of love for In Color to run, the benefits definitely outweigh the costs. That is why we are proud to announce a complete visual overhaul for this great destination.
The site now hosts some of the latest and greatest in bells and whistles, and it chugs along on a super speedy website, providing a feature-rich experience for users whether they are on desktops, laptops, tablets or mobile phones. If you haven't visited the site recently, please check it out, especially the reviews section.
Together with our affiliate, Terrain Consulting, In Color has taken our latest developed website, ERGCalifornia.com, live. This website is a public relations project designed to exemplify the benefits that a well-run energy company contributes to the local society and economy.
Terrain Consulting is a public affairs company in Santa Barbara, specializing in building relationships between its clients and the social community. In the construction of this website, Terrain provided client relations services, project management and copy writing skills, while In Color produced the photography, graphic design and programming.
This website utilizes the latest HTML5-compliant, Responsive Width design, allowing for a single layout, together with appropriate programming, to re-purpose itself for a multitude of different screen widths. This concept is important for today's websites, as a single layout template serves for screen-widths from a large computer display, to a small-width tablet display, to a single column smart phone display.
The site also utilizes a dynamic multimedia slider on the home page.

In Color is happy to announce the "go live" of a very classy and modern website for friend and client, Nils Larsen. Mr. Larsen is a contractor and builder based in Santa Barbara, but he does big projects all over the country.
Mr. Larsen's website, larsenfinehomes.com, features an animated slider on the home page, which is a little more dynamic than the typical slide show. These images were all taken by Mr. Larsen, but they were color-corrected and optimized by In Color.
Additionally, there's a portfolio page which links to Mr. Larsen's most interesting projects. Each project has it's own image gallery of photography supplied by the client. The copy was all written by long-time In Color affiliate, John Hollis, who has teamed with us on many different past projects.
In Color has completed an upgrade to thearlingtontheatre.com. This heavily-trafficed website was running an older CMS platform, and we deemed it ready for a state-of-the-art upgrade. Originally built in 2006, this is the second major upgrade this site has undergone.
With its new platform comes some new plans, too. Over the next several months, we will be creating a mobile version to address the growing number of mobile users. This version will be formatted specifically for smaller devices and displays, while delivering important content along with our sponsor's advertisements, in a user-friendly way. We also plan on adding a subscription and notification system, so users can receive information and update alerts as we get them. We have received several requests for this feature over the last couple years.
Along with the upgrade, we decided to switch to a more modern theme. The new look is a big "edgy" while it still utilizes the basic layout struture we honed over many years of optimization. So the new site has the best of both worlds. If you frequent The Arlington Theatre, we hope you'll like the new resource.
Today, In Color has officially gone live with our new web portal, designed specifically for Outrigger Canoe paddlers. Liliu.co is named after the biggest long-distance canoe race in the world. Lili'u is the nickname paddler's give to the race's namesake, the Queen Lili'uokalani Canoe Race.
The Lili'u takes place annually in Kailua-Kona, Hawaii, during the Labor Day weekend. In Color has been working long and hard to get the site up and running before this year's race. We will be in Hawaii for the next couple weeks, shooting new race photos and promoting the website.
