Site Showcase: Openview Labs

29 November 2010 comment icon4 | Categories: best of, showcase, theme news

While browsing the WordPress Site Showcase today, I noticed a great new WordPress powered site for OpenView Labs.

What I thought was particularly interesting about this new website is the lovely content dropdown menus.

This design pattern is becoming increasingly popular with big sites like Reuters using these content menu dropdowns.  I’d love to know how they integrated these into WordPress.

They OpenView guys have also done an excellent job on the overall layout, typography and colour palette.

Well done guys and kudos to Kevin Leary for the design.

    Thanks Ed,

    I’m glad you like the design! The dropdown menus were meant to be a little out of the box, Reuters was actually used as partial inspiration. They were developed using an advanced WP_Query call.
