Case Study: Custom Coded Directory Website

We were approached with a request to create a brand and a website for IBNET a directory for churched and ministries. The branding needed to reflect the idea of a network of churches and ministries. The website was requested to be built custom coded on the Yii Framework. 


After several conversations, we determined that what the client really wanted was a LinkedIn for Churches and Ministries with the potential for monetization down the road. The Yii Framework was very much out of our comfort zone and was going to be a learning curve for us. But we worked closely with the client who was a full stack php developer himself.

The Work

This site was an extensive site with many different features. We created custom code for all of the front end design to create a user interface that followed the brand style that we created and made for a great user experience. We advised the client on the marketing aspect of the website as well.

The Result

Our solution in the branding, marketing, and creation of the website coded from the ground up has created a fantastic online experience for anyone visiting

“Even better than I imagined.”

IFB Design has done some work for Reformers Unanimous, as well as for me personally, and it has always been even better than I imagined. Their work is the greatest proof that they have a natural eye for design. Combine that with their understanding of and love for ministry and you have an excellent combination. Conservative churches often have the right position, but portray it in such inferior ways. IFB Design possesses the skill for being fresh, yet not so trendy that it looks out of place with our message. I encourage you to use them whenever possible.
