Art Car Fest Web Site Redesign

DNL Builders Web Design

DNL Buildersweb site is finally up and running the way I wanted it to. This web design project came from a simple business card redesign I did for DNL builders. I saw what they had and asked if I could “massage” it a bit. DNL and their clients were so happy with the results they asked me to do their web site as well.

DNL Builders is a full-service construction company in Sonoma County and the greater Bay Area that specializes in Custom Homes, Custom Remodels, Project Management and General Contracting.

One of the features of this site that I am really excited about is the gallery page using spry tabs in Dream weaver CS3 in order to display multiple projects on a single page. I used the rollover feature to be able to quickly scan through each project without having to click on every thumbnail. The other feature I managed to figure out on this web design project was building the navigation tabs in CSS and making the tabs active for each page shown with a glowing house behind each word.

This web design project was very personal to me, not only because DNL is a great clients but because Darrel and Nicole Lancaster are close friends as well. My goal was to create a site that reflects the quality of work they provide to their clients in custom homes and I think I did it.

One thing I know for sure is that if you take care of clients there will be plenty of work, even in this economy.

Chapala Market Logo Design

I just finished the Chapala Market and Deli recently and wanted to post it here. I used Seagull BT Heavy and used the rise warp option in Illustrator CS3 to distort the text to fit the banner.

Broken FM Logo

The Broken.FM logo has been one of the funnest and most exciting projects in a very long time. I met Keith and Rynie, the station owners, some time ago…they had a vision to start an alternative christian rock station in Santa Rosa,CA. The Press Democrat recently wrote an article called Christian Rock Fills Santa Rosa Airwaves” which did a great job of capturing the essence of Broken.FM. I was approached in the early stages to design their logo and I jumped at the opportunity help develop the look and feel of this really amazing station. After many revisions the look for Broken.FM was born and we ended up with the Broken “Screamer”, a young boy obviously listening to really loud and edgy music– an image that is both recognizable and memorable. Keith Leitch said in the article that the station is folks of all ages who enjoy hard-edged music with a positive message. I think this logo captures the essence of what Broken.FM is all about, young, edgy, hard core, loud and fun.

The original logo was created as a banner for the web and then the blog. But I also created the “screamer” as a stand-alone image with the word inside to be used as an identity for Broken.FM’s, Facebook, MySpace, YouTube and Twitter Pages. The idea was to create consistency throughout all the social networks.
