St. Francis / St. Joseph Catholic Worker House : Websites Project
The St. Francis - St. Joseph Catholic Worker House is an emergency shelter for homeless men in downtown Cincinnati widely know for its above average success rate for rehabilitation and employment.
Our mandate from the Board was to develop a website that would communicate to the volunteers, contributors, and the community at large. Founder of the Catholic Worker House movement in 1933, Dorothy Day once said that “God meant things to be much easier than we have made them.”
With simplicity in mind, we focused on the quality of the text and designed an extremely simple site wrapped in a warm and inviting green and red color palette and an easy to read sans serif font. Even the set of photo albums use basic back/forward buttons, and next to the Donate button, the site describes what is needed by way of contributions and volunteers.
The site archives a digital version of their quarterly Newsletter which, to this day, is still printed in black and white and mailed to homes.
