Houston’s First is a large campus with influence that spreads beyond Houston. The church not only has multiple campuses, but also ministries, media, volunteer opportunities, events, staff, live broadcasts, and connection paths to consider.
With so much content it was critical we begin with a comprehensive content strategy and information architecture that would scale with a growing church. The site needs to be searchable, responsive, and intuitive across a broad demographic.
Houston’s First is a thriving and diverse community of real people experiencing real life together. Our strategy was to engage people in the culture.
Houston’s First home page is dynamically-created for each campus. It’s organized to engage users in opportunities to gather, grow, and give.
Houston’s First has multiple physical campuses. It was important to design the campus picker to be simple, intuitive and informative.
