Orchard Hill Church

Responsive Web Design, Custom Ecommerce

OHC, a long time Blue Archer client, returned to our team for a design update that would support their new online positioning goals. In the past, OHC targeted a local community. However, as the church grew over the years, they developed extensive services, workshops, support groups, and even fitness classes that targeted the greater Pittsburgh area. The new site is a major modern facelift and communicates their updated brand to a larger audience.

Design & Imagery

OHC wanted to showcase active members in services, workshops and other fun activities to convey the powerful and vibrant sense of community at OHC. Our design and programming team worked together to build parallax full-width scrolling that allowed the images to take center stage.

The homepage image reinforces OHC’s desire to target the greater Pittsburgh area, and a simple update to the logo compliments the cool colors and modern feel of the new site.

Building Databases

Aiming to facilitate and simplify OHC’s administration workflow, our programming team built a back-end database for Life Groups, facilitating OHC’s administration workflow. The database allows site managers to specify group, category, locations, meeting days, and even childcare availability. A People database was also constructed to manage ministry teams, staff and members.

Registration & Calendar

Because OHC provides a plethora of services, groups, and workshops available to all of their members, it was crucial to include a simple, user-friendly registration module and event calendar.

Our team programmed custom accordions to house event and product information that function like simple folders in the back-end. OHC admin can now create and tag accordions when they add an event to the calendar.

From Our Project Manager

"This project really challenged me, and I enjoyed that. The design is something completely different than what we’re used to doing, but due to the flexibility of our Content Management System, we were able to implement it without a problem. It was gratifying to see the site come together."


- Amber, Blue Archer Project Manager

Custom Ecommerce Catalog

A secure custom ecommerce catalog ensures that OHC members can seamlessly purchase workshop tickets, support group memberships, and fitness passes all within the website.

Easy back-end management means that the OHC administration can easily track orders, export summary reports, and add new promotional discount codes at any time.

Conclusion

The new, modernized website now appeals to all ages, including their enthusiastic youth members. User-friendly event sign ups and integrated ecommerce strengthens the OHC community by making it easy for individuals to attend workshops, exercise classes, outings, and more.
