Gideons International is an organisation that spans the globe. It has an international web site as well as a UK one. However, the work of the Gideons is done by local branches that work within their own area and are supported by the local community.
In order to allow the Southport Gideons to communicate more effectively with this local community Datawise Computing designed a Wordpress based local web site that will allow for multiple branch members to contribute their own specific local news. The site was designed by modifying the default Wordpress template – this allows the maximum flexibility for customisation, and also for use by other branches.
The aim was to create a clean, uncluttered design that would draw viewers to the content. The Gideons logo has been converted to a single colour, and the heading type is a thin sans serif font. The result is visible branding without intruding on the content.
