Maha Padma Yoga Temple, formerly Bija Yoga, is a studio in Union Square, NYC. Their year-in rebranding is spearheaded by a new logo by Hotworks Design, based on original art by Emily Brickel. Maha Padma means ‘great lotus,’ a metaphorical next step from Bija (‘seed’).
The new site, which I designed and built, showcases the studio’s lush, welcoming aesthetic with a clean, elegant layout. Pink and gold highlights are minimal so that the images take center stage. (Click for a larger view.)
Events are automatically added to a ‘portfolio’ grid view as they’re published – no need to constantly update the home page with upcoming workshops. I found this a very pleasing design solution to an everyday problem.
This site was built on WordPress for ease of administration and continuity with the previous site. From concept to coding PHP & CSS to load & launch, the whole project took one month.
