The Portland Garden Club
The Portland Garden Club was founded in 1924 and is a member of The Garden Club of America. Their mission is to stimulate knowledge and love of gardening to help protect native trees, plants and birds and to improve the quality of the environment through educational programs and action in the field of conservation.
As requested by our client, we built a membership site which means a portion of the site is only accessible to Portland Garden Club members. New visitors can learn more about the club and monthly speakers and programs on the public pages, while members can log in and find information about each horticulture group. Each group has their own homepage that features news about the club and any upcoming events. We also built an eCommerce portion of the website, where members can buy tickets to events, lectures and dinners. Our client can easily view new registrations, add new events and manage/process orders in the backend of the site.
The logo design was also an integral part of this project. We wanted to create a classic logo that illustrated the city of Portland by implementing pine trees. They represent not only the Pacific Northwest, but the Portland skyline. We used a contemporary sans serif font that is displayed throughout the site in a forest green, a perfect color that characterizes nature.
The result was a timeless WordPress site with beautiful slider images, call to action buttons that pop and an ease of use for not only our client in the backend, but their members and public visitors.
