We're excited to begin work on this project. We had a great kick-off meeting at the LDSTech Conference on March 30th. Our goal is to come up with a new brand and look for the festival, along with marketing materials including a responsive website, pass along cards, and printed materials.

Meeting Schedule

We are looking for 2-3 developers to help with the next phase of the project. Meetings will resume the week of August 13th and are held on a weekly basis. We will set the meeting time for next week when we have enough volunteers to begin the next phase.

Washington DC Festival of Lights

Each year, thousands of visitor attend the Festival of Lights, held on the grounds of the Washington D.C. Temple. Part of the success of this event is a website and public announcements that encourage visitors to learn more about the Savior and His Church. This year, we would like to update the look of the website, along with the printed brochures and pass-along cards available at the visitor center. We are looking for volunteers to help design a new responsive website for mobile visitors, along with a great design for the Festival of Lights. The project will include:

  • Marketing material for the Festival of Lights
  • Print Brochures
  • Pass Along Cards
  • Website design
  • HTML5/CSS3 markup

The project resources are available at:

You will find the following:

  1. Photoshop files for 2012 designs

To keep everyone in the loop, I will post regular status updates on this wiki. This will allow new members to stay updated about the project status.

Skills needed

To contribute to this project, you should have expertise with "mobile first" and responsive design. We will be developing and coding this site. CSS3, media queries, HTML5 should be technologies you can use with ease.
