Design and Launch of Magnificat Ministries Website

Magnificat Ministries Frontpage, Design

Magnificat Ministries is a Catholic lay apostolate which has been actively engaged in the New Evangelization since 1993. The apostolate is built upon the spiritual foundation of our primary vocation to marriage and the call we’ve discerned to live the hidden life of Nazareth; characterized by personal contemplative prayer, silence, solitude and manual labor. Magnificat Ministries is located in Ontario.

Marcel Dion and his wife Linda, the founder and foundress, of the ministry were looking for a website that would convey the history, power, and beauty of the work that God has put on their hearts.

Rich, deep burgundy and bold blues highlight the features of the site.

One of the unique aspects of the site, is being able to use the power of imagery to communicate depth. As the designer of the artwork, I thought that it could be communicated through aged papers, and software more subtle lines, rather than hard lines and stark images.

The testimonial pages use bright, excellent photographs to highlight the speaker.

On this site there are actually two blogs, one for each of the authors, that work in different ways. WordPress templates allow for customization depending on code, I added this in so that the requests of both of the authors could be accommodated.

It was a pleasure to work on a creative site that took time to make it just right. Both the client and the designer are very happy with the outcome.

Magnificat Ministries chose to start their design from a WordPress Template. That template was then customized and adapted to their needs, and the graphics and layout were changed to suit what they wanted and needed for their ministry. I work with PHP, MySQL, and templates almost everyday. WordPress, Joomla, and Drupal are the content managers that I work with the most.
