BluEnt's Method

BluEnt reviewed PinkMemo's requirements and recommended a custom content management system. After several rounds of discussions, BluEnt proceeded for design and development.

We designed graphically rich CSS/xHTML-based templates with integrated flash elements and custom plug-ins for social media integration and features like "Choose a City", "Szish Dish", etc.

The CSS made the site function well, keeping the loading time to a minimum. BluEnt divided the project into 7 major sections (modules).
