Jacob's Well Church
8 comments | Posted: 16 December 05 in Featured, by Nathan Smith
I checked my email recently, and was pleased to see this nicely done site had been submitted for consideration. It was designed by Scott Raymond, who if you have not heard of yet was one of the people involved in making Blinksale. He’s one of those new savvy Ruby on Rails developers that are causing such a buzz around the ‘Net nowadays. Another popular Rails site is A List Apart.
Well, enough about the designer, here’s what I like about the site: It’s clean, soft and inviting. For those of you who are visiting it shortly after the date of this posting, you might say “The church building looks imposing,” but fear not. From what I can tell, the initial image is on a regularly changing schedule, and I’ve seen some other cool ones in the past few days. These header images are all done by local artists and photographers, a very cool notion. The background colors for the page also change, according to litergical season.
There are only a few minor points that keep this site from being perfect. The navigation breaks down after a few text resizes, which is no big deal because it can be scaled up a few “clicks” comfortably before the tabs start to overlap. Secondly, there are a few CSS errors, caused just by leaving off a pound sign
# before colors. Aside from that, this website is pretty exemplary of what a small church website should be, an extension of the community it serves.
