Introduction

New Dawn International Worship Centre is a community of believers and a parish of The Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) based in Oakville, Ontario, Canada.

Pages and Features

I worked on this CMS project with a UI/UX designer colleague who took the responsibility of a reviewer while I was saddled with the following tasks:

  • Welcome landing page with social media accounts so that visitor can follow us.
  • About us page.
  • Events page showing events for the year per month (we should be able to populate and update this).
  • Meet the team page that shows tile photos of our pastors and ministers.
  • Sermons page (where we can upload audio of sermons with artwork for each sermon).
  • Gallery for uploading pictures.
  • Community page.
  • Contact us page, where people can send a mail and our phone numbers and Location.

The Solution

After a discussion with the client, we realized that our web design had to be:
mind-blowing, orthodoxical, emotional, pleasant and easy to use.

I performed an analysis on the URLs of other churches provided by the client as websites of their taste, we also looked out for more ideas and concepts, after which I continued work by creating High Fidelity (HiFi) wireframes for all required pages showing features highlighted in the list above, we sent it out to the client for review and also to get approval. Iterated until the best possible outcome was reached.

Getting the theme for this project was one of the easiest of all as well as the event plugin. The theme we chose was so pixel-perfect with terrific attention to details, flexibility and performance, it was absolutely easy to import content.

Completion

With the help of the HiFi wireframes, the UI/UX design and development stage was smooth, it took two weeks, during which the web design idea went through many transformations until it was finally brought to completion.
