Responsive Website Design

The Diocese was looking for a fully responsive and accessible website design that looked great on all devices. Talent’s implemented a modern design and built it out in a CMS that would allow for easy future content changes. 

Data was used to drive the initial UX design. Data is also used to adjust the design and layout of elements as time goes on if it’s needed. 

"Know Your Story" Functionality

The Goal

The Diocese of New Jersey wanted their website users and church members to be able to share their testimony on the website. They requested that the stories go through a approval process on the backend of the website and that they be filterable by topic. 

The Solution

Talents developed a custom solution that allows congregation members to submit their story to the church website. Once the story was submitted it’s added into the back end of the website for review and a website admin is notified. Once the story is looked over it can be published to the website with one click. The stories are displayed in chronological order and can be filtered based on the topic the a website user may be interested in. 


The Goal

The Diocese requested that their website be easily switched from English to a few other specific languages. 

The Solution

We sourced the Google Translation API and integrated a solution that would allow a website user to change the language the website content was displayed in. With a simply dropdown menu selection a user can have the website display in one of four languages in the matter of seconds.
