You'll notice these trends and other great design elements on this year's list! So now, without further ado (and in no particular order), I present to you our choices for the 15 best JCC websites of 2015!
The JCC of Dallas website is sleek and sophisticated, with a dark background and stunning photography. We love the pop-out menu and photo grids.
This website features prominent call-to-action links in the image rotator, as well as some really nice flat design elements.
In addition to a clean design with high quality photography, this website features a "lazy load" feature where content loads on a slight delay as you scroll down the page.
On the JCC of Northern Virginia website, the full-page image rotator has a great rollover effect that dims the image and reveals a caption and call-to-action buttons.
The Pittsburgh JCC website uses color overlays, flat design elements, and a long-scrolling home page to create a modern look and feel.
This JCC website features a really nice menu design and an image rotator with playful transition effects.
The website for this Oregon JCC has a full-width image rotator, prominent call-to-action buttons, and great flat design elements.
The JCC of Central New Jersey website has a clean design and a user-friendly navigation that allows visitors to browse programs by age or interest.
We really like the elegant way that alerts are displayed across the top of the Roth Family JCC website. On interior pages, icons are used to represent the J's different programs.
Soft, flat colors and a generous use of whitespace give the David Posnack JCC website a clean and modern look. At the footer of the site, you'll find an event lister and mini-calendar.
On the Rosen JCC's homepage, there is a section that allows visitors to easily toggle between programs, a calendar and membership info. We really like the photo grid and the way that the toggle feature economizes on space.
The Memphis JCC website is clean and simple, with a nice image rotator and photo grid for highlighting key programs. The embedded contact form in the footer encourages visitors to request more information about membership.
Subtle geometric patterns and soft colors give the San Antonio JCC website a cool, modern look.
The JCC of Youngstown website features an image rotator with an "echo" effect.
The JCC Greenwich website makes great use of fixed navigation and a monochromatic color palette.
