When designing the site I looked at the existing print design for the village in order to create a unified connection between print and online marketing.
The site is portal for news about what is happening in the Lynn Valley Village, photographs and video from events, but also filled with general information about the businesses in the Village. The Facebook page for the Lynn Valley Village www.facebook.com/lynnvalleyvillage and the twitter account www.twitter.com/lvvillage will also report on upcoming events and specials that the stores are offering any given time.
Technically about the site. It is built in Joomla 2.5 using framework from Yoothemes (HTML5 and CSS3). In addition I am using an event module from JCal Pro, RS SEO from RS Joomla for the Search Engine Optimization.
Hope you check it out. Here are some screen shots.
