Hebrew Rest Cemetery Association
Location: New Orleans, LA
Profile: Hebrew Rest Cemetery Association is charged with the upkeep and maintenance of Hebrew Rest cemeteries in Gentilly and Dispersed of Judah Cemetery on Canal Street to serve the needs of members of Touro Synagogue and Congregation Temple Sinai as well as the Greater New Orleans Jewish community. The Association was formed as a non-profit organization in 1959.
HRCA had zero web presence or branding, so we got to start from scratch! In addition to branding, logo and graphic design, we worked with and directed a local photographer to capture captivating pictures of the beautiful properties, majestic old tombstones and statues, and other ornamental elements in order to represent the beauty of the HRCA cemeteries on their website.
Additionally, we directed the process of sorting vast amounts of burial data, cleaning it up, and integrating a custom burial search system. We also implemented a slick timeline feature to help tell the story of the history of HRCA in a linear time format.
