The goal of this project was to create an updated clean and informative version of the Mid-Kansas Jewish Federation’s website using WordPress. I worked closely with Julie Fruhauf, the Director of MKJF, on this project in order to not only follow their branding guidelines, but also to ensure that the site functioned in a way that met the organization’s goals and self-management needs.
Throughout the process I researched and utilized dependable plugins for custom functionality and relied on my HTML, CSS, and Photoshop skill set to add further customizations and assist with asset creation and editing.
Additionally, I used Elementor, a page builder plugin, which allowed me to add custom responsive design settings and custom elements to page layouts. The basic framework for the site came from the Genesis Framework and the Outreach Pro child theme. As a static site, it was also important to establish keywords and utilize SEO best practices to ensure that the target audience is reached via search engines.
Important aspects of this project include a popup newsletter sign-up form, embedded PDF links, an event calendar, and CTA buttons strategically placed throughout the site.
I am honored to have been given the opportunity to work on this project for the Mid-Kansas Jewish Federation. As a freelance web developer and designer, I enjoy using my skill set to empower non-profit organizations by creating a bold online web presence for them to help them reach their goals and build their communities.
One of my favorite aspects of the project was helping create the photo collage on the homepage. I absolutely fell in love with their community outreach and love for one another.
My goal for this project was to create a gorgeous website that not only told the story and declared the mission of the Mid-Kansas Jewish Federation, but also visually expressed the beauty and resilience of the Jewish community.
