Mountain City Club


Submitted by Josiah Roe @josiahq.

Interesting new site for 125 year old club in Chattanooga.

Nicely branded site for the Mountain City Club. The colors, type and detail work are all really nice. I think I detect a table in the code, but it’s for the login form. Overall great use of custom photography, you have to be a little jealous when you get the chance to work with nice photography on a website project.

  • Tables aren’t all bad, are they 🙂

    Photos were a combo of in-house at Medium and a great Chattanooga photographer named Lawson Whitaker. He does great work.

    Thanks for the mention! Much appreciated.

  • Hah, no, not all the time, sometimes you need to use tables. Just poking fun there.

    Nice site!

    The design is suitably elegant and luxurious. It’s cool how a simple gradient or two, some contrasting edges, and dark glows can create that look.

    Arial is a safe choice for body text, but I think a serif font like Georgia would have completed the classical look.
