Mormon.org has been redesigned

by Rusty Lindquist on September 24, 2008 · 0 comments

In case you didn’t notice, www.Mormon.org recently underwent a redesign.  While the old site was really good, this new one takes a really clean, simple approach.  Things are easy to find, and what’s more, there’s LOTS of videos (really illustrating the church’s savvy recently on leveraging online video – e.g. their YouTube channel reaching the youth).  This really makes learning about the gospel, and what Mormonism is all about, very easy, very comfortable, very non-invasive, and a very rich experience.

For those who are not members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, www.Mormon.org is really focused on the fundamentals of Mormon doctrine.  Basically answering the questions “what is Mormonism all about?”, while www.LDS.org is focused primarily on being a resource for Latter-day Saints (Mormons) for lots more in depth information, manuals, and much, much more.

The new www.Mormon.org website breaks down their content by 5 main categories, each of which are then broken down into further detail.  Each page is very explanatory and almost all of them have rich video content.  If you haven’t yet seen it, click here.

Also, don’t forget to look at the bottom of the site to see the videos on “Mormons Worship Jesus Christ”, “Mormons are Christian”, “Jesus Christ is Real”, “God Speaks Today”, “Gods Words Never Cease”, “Answers to Life’s Great Questions”, and many other videos.

Or click on one of the Main topics below to see the many sub-options and videos under each category.

The Restoration of the truth:

“God is your Father in Heaven. He knows you personally. Jesus Christ is the Son of God and your Savior. His life and teachings are the way to peace and happiness.”

Heavenly Father’s Plan of Happiness:

“God’s plan of salvation and happiness helps you understand the purpose of life and your relationship with Him. Centered on Jesus Christ, God’s plan teaches where you came from, the purpose of life, and what happens when you die.”

Jesus Christ:  Our Savior

“Our loving Heavenly Father sent His Son, Jesus Christ, into the world to show us how to live meaningful and happy lives and experience eternal joy after this life.”

The Commandments

“Your Heavenly Father loves you and wants to bless you in all aspects of your life. He has given commandments through His prophets to help you live a happy life”

Membership in Christ’s Church

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is organized to perfect and bless the lives of God’s children.

I checked this out a couple of weeks ago and it’s great! Very user friendly. For questions you can just ask Rusty under “Ask a Mormon a Question”.

I will check this out, Rusty, and seek to interact a little more with the video face.

To be honest, I was really disappointed with the redesign of mormon.org. I think the overall feel of simplicity was taken to to the extreme of of being “too simplistic”. The color pallet could be nice, but was executed poorly, there is not a high enough contrast between the stark white, yellow and grey’s used. I know this site was designed by http://northtemple.com/ and I guess just compared to high ratings others had given them, I was just expecting a lot more.

The video functionality is nice but felt is could have been integrated within the site better. The video “pop-up” player seems to be a little off in alignment as well.

So yeah, just a little disappointing, also the the “liquid” layout feel looks a little finished with the box at the bottom, and how it is just centered on the page. I hope this isn’t the last revamp for a while, I hope something else better comes along soon.
