In 2016, I developed a website for Cordoba House, a nonprofit based in New York City. Working alongside a designer, I built a custom child theme for the Genesis Framework for WordPress, which features a robust “Programs” section with information about the organization’s work, a “Community” section featuring blogs and articles, an event calendar, donation form, and several custom registration forms for the organization’s programs, all in a clean, modern, and attractive design.
User Experience Considerations
This website required several pages to showcase different changing content – a community blog, a list of news items of interest, and a list of media generated by the organization and its founder – which the organization wanted to keep separate in different parts of the website. I achieved this by creating three posts pages, each with their own sub-categories and navigation.
Cordoba House’s mission is to “a beacon of transformative spirituality for the American Muslim community in New York and beyond.” As such, the website’s design should ideally reflect both the traditional, Islamic aspect of the organization as well as its placement in the contemporary United States. The website’s design achieves this balance via a creative blend of whitespace and clean lines and Islamic images and patterns.
