Before Lancaster Church of the Brethren had me redesign their entire site, they asked me if I could spruce up their homepage for the Christmas Holiday while leaving the existing website to function normally. I offered them what I call a “facelift” that would change the backdrop and banner for the website without changing the underlying functionality at all. I also made a video to promote their Christmas Eve Candlelight Service and gave the banner a flash animation to make the Star of Bethlehem glow on supported browsers (this animation is not visible in the images below).
Here is a before and after shot of the changes made to the banner and backdrop. You may adjust the sliding bar to reveal more of either the before or after image as you see fit.
