Winnetka Community House Website

The website for Winnetka Community House

Winnetka Community House Website
The homepage shows sliders with upcoming events and highlighted programs. The sidebar has buttons to connect via social media as well as easy access to frequently used tools such as online registration and the event calendar.
When rebuilding the Winnetka Community House website, I wanted to go beyond HTML or registration sites many similar organizations rely on. I wanted a site that could support frequent news and updates and that offered a lot of flexibility both graphically and functionally. 

I chose Wordpress and customized a theme to reflect the style and brand of the organization. It gave the organization better tools to connect with users, publicize events and programs, display its facilities and get metrics on usage. The site proved tremendously successful, leading to increasing site visits year over year. 
The weddings page shows video, a photo gallery and describes the historic Arches Garden ceremony space and indoor amenities offered for weddings hosted at the site. The page also includes a form for brides to request more information online. 
The Programs page shows sections of the seasonal program guide broken down by section. The registration system used offers limited functionality for searching/browsing, so we offered users a way to easily browse the current course offerings.
