It’s been about 16 years since the internet really started going mainstream, and these days we take it very much for granted that most organizations will have a website. Baha’i communities around the world have been slowly but steadily getting online for some time now. What is exciting to me as a web designer is that through further iterations some of our online Baha’i sites are actually starting to get pretty useful and full-featured.
Today I came across the beta version of the new Bahai.us site and was impressed with how it’s been progressing through successive versions. The new site is up for use at Next.Bahai.us and I think is an improvement on the current site which you can still see (for now at least) at Bahai.us.
The US Baha’i site has always been packed full of content with a newsletter, continuously updated articles, podcasts and a lot of multimedia content. The new site wraps up a lot of this content in a more engaging interface with far more images and a fantastic news homepage. It looks like the site is still being worked on from a few loose ends that I came across, but overall it’s looking great.
