The “Doors of Bethlehem” is in essence a contest whereby many of the businesses in downtown Bethlehem compete to win best holiday decorated door. The site initially consisted of a printable map of the doors and a voting form. To better compliment the campaign Ternstyle (in close work with Element Media) was asked to create a fresh look that would allow for easier voting, easier ways to find the physical locations of the doors and most importantly feature images of each door in the campaign (All photography by Marty Desilets.).
Ternstyle employed a randomly ordered slider of thumbnails of each door on the homepage to showcase the doors front and center. When clicking through to each door an inline form for voting, contact information for the respective business, commenting by way of the plugin “Disqus” (implemented by Element Media), a large image of the doors which zooms when clicked and an embedded Google map displayed at will all help better tell the story of each business and each door.
Ternstyle’s “ternCal” – online calendaring plugin was installed to run the campaign’s “Holiday Calendar” and lists the events in an agenda view as well as displays the events in an AJAX month-at-a-glance calendar overlay which allows you to page through events by month, week or day without ever leaving the page you’re viewing.
Ternstyle’s “Posts in Google Maps” plugin was installed and customized to allow each door to be showcased as a pinpoint in a universal map. Each point when clicked displays the name of the business associated with the point, the address, a link to view directions to the location through Google and a link to view the page on the campaign’s website associated with the door.
