Welcome to the first video in a new series called WOW – World of WordPress. In this series, I’m going to be looking at established businesses large and small, at individuals known and unknown, who are using WordPress to power their sites in unusual, inventive and potentially ground breaking ways.

Part of the impetus behind this series comes from a very talented web designer called Milo. I’ve already showcased her website and work on wpliving as part of my WordPress Community Series. If you missed it, it’s called “Milo and the Radical Edge of WordPress“.

The first website I want to look at in this new series belongs to an Italian restaurant called La Gallina Che Fuma. Part of the reason I’m interested in this site is because it makes very imaginative use of the single page WordPress theme type. If you watch the video, you’ll see what I mean. I think it’s a great example of a company using web design and the simplicity of WordPress to convey a strong sense of brand identity. It’s bright, bold and playful.

Let me know what you think about this design. Also let me know if you have ideas for new sites to look at. Please send me any suggestions via the contact form.
