  • WordPress
  • Elementor Page Builder
  • Alumni Members Database
  • Photo Galleries

Lighthouse Community Centre

WordPress Web Design & Recreation Site Logo Design

A new WordPress website for Lighthouse Community Hall in Qualicum Bay, BC. This project included a new logo design for their Lighthouse Recreation project. The website is built using the Astra Pro WordPress theme, and Elementor page builder.

The Lighthouse Community Centre in Qualicum Bay needed a new website to replace an old Google Site, which was set to expire soon.   They also needed a new sub-site for their Lighthouse Recreation project, which they wanted to add without purchasing an additional domain name.

We built their website using WordPress, the Astra Pro theme, and Elementor page builder.  Using Astra’s custom header feature, we added a different page style, navigation menu, and logo for their Recreation pages.

We also designed a new logo for Lighthouse Recreation.  Their new logo reflects the natural scenery of Lighthouse Country on Vancouver Island.  As part of our logo design package, we included a horizontal and vertical version of the logo, as well as multiple file types (black & white, transparent, print and web versions).

As part of our Starter website package, we included basic SEO (Custom Title and Description Tags), a WordPress Security Checklist, setup for Google Search Console and Google Analytics, and training in WordPress.  The website receives an “A” performance rating from GTMetrix.com.

Our website was using older technology, making it difficult to update, and lacked an interesting look that would pull viewers in. Navigation needed to be improved as well. Crystal at Creatscape Design immediately understood what we were looking for and made suggestions that we were happy to adopt... It was a pleasure working with a professional who understood our non-profit and went beyond what we were hoping for.
