Church of the Incarnation

I spotted this site awhile ago (though I forget where/how), but am just now getting around to doing a write-up. It was done by talented designer Scott Bom of Wishingline. It is nice to see a “classic” looking site, and it seems to blend well with what the church is about.
The site has very liturgical look, and makes good use of serif typography to create a vintage feeling. There are also subtle touches like leafage on the edges of horizontal lines, and crosses with arms of equal length in the navigation. For a bit of trivia, this is called crux immissa quadrata in
The photography throughout this site are of the actual church and congregation, a big plus in my book for any community site. The tone of the pictures is formal, but also quite lighthearted. I like that none of the photos are of the church itself, except for on the About page – which is to be expected. This is the one requisite photo, so people know what to look for as new attendees.
In that same vein, there is also a nice interactive map to aid newcomers in navigating their way to Sunday worship. I also like that RSS and Atom feeds are made available for community events, enabling people to stay in the loop more readily. Overall, this is a solid design effort – quaint, friendly, inviting.
