2011 was the 400th anniversary of the publication of the King James Version of the Bible and therefore the Evangelical Alliance identified a unique opportunity for the Church to focus its attention on the Word of God.
By the end of the project, more than 285,000 pages were viewed on the Biblefresh website, and across the whole project more than £74,000 was raised to enable the Bible to be translated into two languages.
My volunteer role as a web developer and designer on the project involved assisting the lead developer in creating pages on the website. The logo and colour scheme was already agreed and in print before I joined the project to work on web development and design. I was involved in design work and CSS, HTML and some basic PHP development for the website. At the time, the website was built on a modular platform where content blocks could be added, so we had to work within those constraints.
Here are a few screenshots of the original website I helped to create:
The Biblefresh project finished at the end of 2011, but I enjoyed working as part of the team and learnt a lot from my experience working on the project.
