The Future

So I’ve been doing some mobile development lately and I got to thinking about designing for a vertical viewing experience and within the context of our current smartphones.
What will marketing and advertising be like in the near future?
Maybe something like this?!
This is a motion-design concept I came up with and built with Photoshop/After Effects/Flash to demonstrate a smartphone-ready ad for Virgin Records.

My work in print!

My design for the 21st Annual Housing Colorado Conference has been printed and is in circulation!
I developed this while working at local design firm, Ryden and Associates. My design was chosen by the client out of several designed by the Art Director and other in-house designers. Don’t I feel special!

Full Screen CSS

Yes – it can be done! I’ve been working on a new site for Gretsch guitars endorsed guitarist Bobby Smith. I have some great live photos that I’ve taken and wanted to play with a high-impact look that uses a photo to capture the feeling of a live rock show. To really make it work, the photo needed to stretch across the entire screen – no matter what the visitor’s screen resolution is and the design should react to any resizing of the browser window with the content staying in a predictable location. One more thing – do it all without Flash! Well the solution requires some crafty CSS tips that I picked up here and I think it makes for a pretty impressive look.

New Logo for HMCAI!

The Historic Montclair Community Association is the oldest in Colorado and until now did not have a logo that represented the neighborhood’s proud heritage. After living in the neighborhood for 2 years I felt it was time to offer an alternative logo to the board. I submitted my design and a few weeks later learned that it had been voted-in as the new official logo – cool!

Cri de Coeur Fall 2009 Site

We’ve just finished building a new site for vegan shoe company Cri de Coeur from New York City. The site is fully dynamic allowing the owner to add content (news, new collections, press etc..) herself.

Good Grief Quartet Site

The Good Grief Quartet is an instrumental jazz group primarily dedicated to performing the music of Charles Schultz’s “Peanuts” cartoon as composed by Vince Guaraldi.
These guys needed to get the word out about their unique group and hired Get It Designs to quickly build a site. With no logo or even photos of the band, we first designed a band logo that would immediately evoke the feeling of Charles Schultz’s Peanuts gang without any trademark infringements.
The site was developed using WordPress as a Content Management System so the band members could easily expand on the site, update the calendar, add photos/music etc..
Check it out:

Le Vin Skin Care

Le Vin Skin Care is adding 3 new products to it’s Wine Therapy line and needed new labels and packaging that were unique to the products but remained consistent with the award-winning graphics of the existing products.
The process began with sketches and ended with digital files ready for the printer.
Look for these new products at better skin care boutiques soon!

She She’s Corner

She She’s Corner is an upscale resale boutique in Denver. As part of a team that included Corey Hart, LaTasha Hamlet, Scott, and Sandra Poortinga we built a new brand identity that included a new website.
The site uses WordPress technology to give the boutique’s owner the ability to update and add content to the site from any computer with internet access.
The site also incorporates Flash and video elements to evoke the feel and charm of the boutique. All work was done by our team including several photo shoots.

Pirates Galley Site Goes Live

PiratesGalleyTattoo.com is online.

The client was very eager to have a site which they could maintain themselves – adding and replacing content without any HTML knowledge.

The solution was to build the site using WordPress technology. Several designs were proposed – each utilizing the clients unique hand-drawn logo. Once a design was agreed on, a custom WordPress theme was developed and built.

The client has a great amount of freedom with this site, including the ability to add additional pages that will automatically add links in the main navigation at the top.

Below is a screenshot of the site and some of the rejected designs.
