PUBLIC SPEAKER ~ Custom WordPress Website with Integrated Bookstore
A decade after creating the Martin and Gracia Burnham Foundation, Gracia Burnham and her team approached Lee Media Group about building a fresh new website that was SEO-friendly, mobile responsive, and featured an easy-to-use bookstore.
During the first meeting with Gracia and her team, I found myself in awe. Gracia is tiny in stature, but has a mighty presence. I kept that strength and courage in the forefront of my mind as I worked on the content. ~Dani Stone – Creative Writer
Website – Modern, but True to the Past
We knew we wanted to modernize Gracia’s website, yet still have a memorial of Gracia’s story. Recently, Gracia met figure skater, Dorothy Hamill, on a book signing tour. During a conversation, Dorothy reminded Gracia, “Your website should reflect the time that made you who you are.” Echoing the sentiment, we took the gritty photos from Gracia’s captivity and paired them with a bright, modern color palette.
Christian Color Theory
Despite the darkness of her story, Gracia’s personality is bright and lovely, and we wanted it to come through in the color palette. Using Christian Color Theory, we selected light hues with a deeper meaning. Blue represents heaven and acceptance, while coral represents good – separating and leaving evil behind. We’re honored that Gracia and her team chose Lee Media Group to build a website that is not only special to the Burnham family, but also has the ability to help people in need, across the globe.
Logo – Simply Gracia
Every time Gracia signs a book, she uses the same big, beautiful “G” with swooping cursive letters and a line directly beneath. The signature logo is featured at the top of every page on the new site.
Gracia and her team were open to different creative ideas, and incredibly helpful in the design process. ~NIck Bishop – Graphic Designer
