Old St Paul's is a historic, beautiful and growing church in the heart of Edinburgh, just off the Royal Mile.
I designed and developed a new site that highlights the church's busy calendar of services and events, and seeks to communicate something of the essence of the rich liturgy, lively community and architectural heritage that makes Old St Paul's special.
Hard working news and events sections are complemented by a Services section highlighting the church's liturgical calendar. There are pages dedicated to the church's art and architecture, history, and musical tradition. All of the church's many groups have their own page and news and events listings.
The design makes extensive use of photos of the architecture and services taken by me and members of the congregation: a dark colour scheme helped the images stand out. The site's typography was carefully crafted to reflect something of the dignity and lyricism of the church's liturgy.
The site is integrated with the ExpressionEngine content management system to make it easy for church content editors to maintain the site.
