The Centers for Spiritual Living (CSL) initiated a branding campaign as part of its strategy to create a consistent presence across its various centers. Elements of the new branding strategy include consistent logos, naming conventions, collateral, and websites. The templates for the websites were created in Drupal and Joomla and contain comment content and navigation elements.
de Lorm Designs was involved in the initial beta testing of the Joomla template, which included installing and customizing a website and providing updates to the documentation. Also included was creating additional pages and application updates as needed to provide for a complete website, as well as participating in a branding meeting targeted towards educating the centers on the branding strategy and providing input to the organization regarding branding next steps.
Since the initial beta, de Lorm Designs has installed and customized websites for several centers across the country. This includes incorporating each center's logo, creating specific pages to meet unique needs, and updating content and layout elements as desired. Also included is creating user profiles, implementing the desired template color scheme, customizing module components, testing, and hosting coordination. Custom client content management training and project oversight was also provided to the centers, as were ongoing marketing consultations and updates to the sites and supporting applications.
In 2013, de Lorm Designs created an upgraded version of the Joomla template. The new template contains additional functionality implemented to meet Center needs, including forms that integrate with Constant Contact and a podcast component that allows visitors to listen to podcasts without leaving the website. The template was created on a framework that provides for easy customization and migration to future versions of Joomla and has been installed as part of a migration or new install for several CSL Centers.
The template has been updated to be responsive for mobile devices and tablets, with layout varying according to the dimensions of the device. The new responsive design is being rolled out to the Centers supported by de Lorm Designs.
