The Swedenborgian Church

The Swedenborgian Church of San Francisco requested a website make-over to show off the features of their church and grounds as a perfect wedding location in their best light.

We sat down together to discuss the goals and options for the site and decided to focus on images of the beautiful historic building, create an easy-to use navigation and highlight the important pages to visit on the homepage.

I constructed a site featuring a full-width slider on the homepage as well a three featured pages that lead to the most requested pages.The overall look of the site takes its cue from the Arts and Crafts design of the Swedenborgian church itself: a color scheme of earth tones and greens, along with a simple yet solid layout. A subtle “art-nouveau” background texture enhances the period feel of the site.

Careful attention was paid to the selection of fonts. I chose the classic EB Garamond for titles, so complement the traditional feel of the church and the clean and modern  Open Sans as a body font, to make reading easy and the overall look balanced.
