About the Wellstone Memorial & Historic Site

VantagePoint Marketing - Paul Wellstone Memorial SceneryNear this site in October of 2002, a plane carrying United States Senator Paul Wellstone crashed en route to the Eveleth airport. As the 20th anniversary of the crash approaches, we were asked to create a website for the Memorial Site to pay tribute to Paul Wellstone, his career, remember those who were lost along with him in the crash, and show website visitors this beautiful site, which has been kept largely undisturbed. We were honored to create this website, and are proud of the finished product. 

Website Design

For this website, we started from scratch. We created a simple logo for the website, based on Paul Wellstone’s logo during his political career. The website includes history about the memorial site, Paul Wellsone, and those who were lost in the crash, as well as acknowledgements and directions to the site. It was important for us to maintain a serious tone, and to not over-complicate the website. Visitors of the website will be able to see the natural beauty of the memorial site and understand the impact Paul Wellstone had.

The biggest component of this website is a Virtual Walkthrough of the memorial site. This is a feature we’ve never had the opportunity to add to a website and working with the Matterport team made it extremely easy. Visitors can take a virtual walk through the memorial site, read the plaques, and get an idea of what the memorial is like in real life. This is a great feature for people who are unable to physically visit the memorial site.

We are very proud of the work we put into this website build and are grateful to those who are involved with the memorial site for giving us this opportunity. Be sure to check out the Paul Wellstone Memorial & Historic Site website, and don’t forget to take a virtual walk through the memorial site. 

VantagePoint Marketing - Abiding Savior Logo with Sky Background

We recently wrapped up a project for the Abiding Savior Lutheran Church of Elk River, MN.

The project included a logo refresh and a new website design. We had a great time putting these together for Abiding Savior, and wanted to show off what we’ve done for them.

Abiding Savior Lutheran Church is located in Elk River, Minnesota. They came to us wanting an updated logo and website that gives users a feel for what ASLC is all about. They came in with an idea of what they wanted on their website, and we were happy to turn their vision into a reality.

Updated Logo

We started off by refreshing their existing logo. As with any Logo Design project, there was a bit of back and forth, but we ultimately decided on the logo you see on the left of this paragraph. We kept the cross icon the same from their original logo, to keep the overall branding consistent, but updated the fonts to be more modernized. Both our team and theirs were very pleased with the final product. We created several versions of the logo so that it can be used for various marketing materials, as well as a brand card, explaining how each logo should be used and suggestions for each. Once the logo was approved, it was time to get working on the website.

Website Design 

While the website was a pretty straightforward build, the ASLC team did want to include a few unique pieces including a Church Library accessible to the public and a Bible Verse LookUp too. On the website, you can find information about the church, pastoral services, and educational classes they offer. We believe we were able to capture their vision, and make it a functional site full of resources for their congregation. 

We had a great time putting this website together for Abiding Savior Lutheran Church, and are extremely happy with the end result. We look forward to continuing our professional relationship with the ASLC team. Be sure to check out the Abiding Savior Lutheran Church website to see what we came up with for them!
