Final design screenshot
Couple month ego I created a website for Zichron Kedoshim congregation (read about first version of site design). At that time I have received information to fill up just few pages. It is very hard to build something when you have too little info you can operate with.

Anyway, one day I started to feel unsatisfied about the design, especially after some of the pages filed up with content. I asked my self – is it right? That congregation site looks like Blog? The answer was – not!
First I tried to save the situation by changing dimensions of the layout design.
It did not really work for me, so I started to search for other solutions.
This is a first sketch I made using Photoshop tools. What I was looking for is the right feeling that will match the congregation ambiance. This fast sketch looked for me much closer to the design for a synagogue website.
Rabbi Lesches – when I asked for his opinion about the design – his preference was for the first design version not the new sketch design.
The Rabbi’s preferences surprised me a bit. It is why I went back to the first design and start to modify it.
The first site version did not have a Logo, I decided to create one. Also experiment with two side bars (left and right sections).
Cutting off the header image.
Gradient and background image for widgets – blocks of the left and right sections.
Main content on black background - test.
The final design for this point looked like this:
