New work: Crossroads Prison Ministries’ E-commerce Site

Nov 13, 2018

In August, I launched the new website for Crossroads Prison Ministries Canada. (Read the original blog post.) That launch was the first of three phases of the project. Today, I’m excited to reveal phase 2: an e-commerce shop.

With the e-commerce shop, Crossroads can now explain their ministry by sharing their specific needs and requesting funding in specific areas. In other words, you can ask Crossroads to put your money towards sending Bibles to prisoners, or sending Bible courses to prisoners. You can even help pay for postage (which is really expensive for bulky lesson plans). Check out the catalogue.

The website’s new e-commerce addition is powered by WooCommerce, but features an entirely unique front-end design. It’s designed to be intuitive to use on mobile and desktop, and to make browsing and checking out as quick and easy as possible. Crossroads’ blog has also been re-designed to match their new storefront, so the website’s aesthetic remains consistent.

Finally, I had the exciting opportunity to take all the pictures for the catalogue. I couldn’t be happier with how they turned out. I would love to take more pictures for clients, so consider this your infrequent reminder that I offer professional photography as part of any design project.

Work like this is always a result of close collaboration between the designer and the client. The folks at Crossroads have tremendous taste and are a pleasure to work with. If you haven’t seen Crossroads’ new website yet, you can check it out here.
