Here's a submission sent to us recently that completely exceeded our expectations: an in-house redesign of Covenant Seminary's website that is one of the best, if not the best, academic/religious institution website we've seen in quite some time.
Our in-house creative team at Covenant Theological Seminary in Creve Couer launched a brand new site that we wanted to share with the St. Louis Egotist. We’ve consolidated all the great free resources from our previous sites into one more intuitive and engaging site and have added 10 new full-length, master’s-level courses, with more planned for release soon! Unlike many higher educational websites, this one offers an experiential design that we hope provides a more accurate picture of who we are and who our students become as they live, learn, worship, and grow in grace with us.
Get to know the city we love to call home by flipping through this online magazine that highlights the museums, recreational opportunities, attractions, parks, and much more that St. Louis has to offer. And what's more, you'll find that many of these activities are free!
Fulfilling our mission of training pastors and ministry leaders shouldn't stop in the classroom. For the many future students, alumni, friends of the Seminary, and even ministry leaders across the globe who may never be able to attend Seminary, we want to share the excellent teaching that is happening here on campus. To access nearly 40 master's-level courses, as well as lecture series, sermons, and Q+A's—all provided for FREE—simply sign in or sign up on the new website. All resources can be streamed live or downloaded to enjoy later. Use the My Queue feature to keep track of things you want to listen to as time allows.
This site contains some incredibly solid and thematically consistent design work. We also can't stress how beautiful and necessary the photography and image selections they've made are - in combination with tasteful type and placed in a functional grid system. All these elements come together to make us totally interested in an institution that we would otherwise have absolutely no interest in whatsoever. That is the sign of successful work.

Many of our prospective students travel to visit us before committing to our programs… and we wanted to provide a visual that would help make the decision to travel here even easier. This video sets the stage for a weekend visit in St. Louis and at Covenant.
Very nice, cohesive work. The video titles mimicking the camera movements are slightly annoying at first, but then seem to get better when they begin to 'Explore St. Louis'. Congratulations in-house team of Covenant Seminary. Seriously, you have no doubt created the finest web presence and promo video of any seminary or educational institution around.
Your move, Eden & Concordia.
