At the risk of everyone crying “nepotism!” and looking like we’re handing out self-congradulatory pats on the back, I have decided to feature this site by the duo of Rob Soulé and Mark Steinruck, even though Rob is a Godbit writer.
When I first saw this forum thread, I was immediately impressed by the quality exuded by this site. I like how it takes the tried-and-true header + two column layout, and playfully breathes new life into that layout format. The index page places the current sermon series front-and-central, and the rotating header shows the many facets of the church, ranging from liturgical to zany.
noscript tag to replace the header with a static image, in the event JS / Flash is not available, as explained on Maratz.
Rob has informed me that this is on the to-do list. To be fair, I am jumping the gun a bit by featuring this site when it was just posted to solicit feedback. There are also a few minor HTML errors, being caused by the search form, but those fall within the 10 error limit for our featured site gallery criteria.
All in all, it’s a very nice site, and I’m eager to see how the rest of it is fleshed out, particularly the photos area. Subtle elegance abounds, from the typeface in the logo, reminiscent of hand-cut metal printing, to the cool logo in the bottom left of the main page, depicting Bible, tree and world simultaneously. Rob and Mark are each solid designers individually, and their teamwork here: superb.
