We just designed these groovy (and loud) business cards for Smells Like Pop, an on-line music magazine with “music news, opinion, blather and snark.” The writers of SLP (of which I myself am one!) are for the most part all “Pops” (or at least old enough to smell like a pop) and hail from up and down the West Coast. You can read some reviews, editorials and features at smellslikepop.com...

We just did a soft-launch of the new Wordress website we designed and built for The Oregon-Israel Business Alliance (OIBA). The bright, friendly and professional site using the colors green (for Oregon) and blue (for Israel) in a fresh way to elevate this group’s profile in the business landscape. The OIBA connects companies, business professionals, governmental officials, universities, and economic development agencies to expand business and economic relations between the State of Oregon and the State of Israel. Our hats are off to OIBA Secretary, Jeff Katz for being a great collaborator on this project, making it a truly enjoyable work experience....

Funny how you can be so busy sometimes that you completely forget about what you've been working on! Today we made a visit to one of our local clients, Deco Distilling and were surprised to see these cards on their counter. Hey, who did these?! Oh, yeah ...

The website we designed for Distillery Row was built in Wordpress using a Woo theme as the base of the site. We're happy to share that the nice people at Woo Themes liked what we did, and have added the site to their Featured section of their showcase. Here's a bit of what they wrote: “I just wanted to reach out and say great job on the site! Seriously, it looks great and I definitely hope you’re enjoying the theme ...

Check out their new site (built in Wordpress for easy editing and updating) to learn more....

Deco Distilling is moving into their new production facility, complete with a Tasting Room that will be open on weekends, so they needed new business cards. We helped them out with a nice refresh that’s equal parts vintage Deco and rock-and-roll. While the spirits are hand-crafted, these cards are all about sales, so we put an ad on the back for their delicious new Coffee Rum. And, yes that is a Silver Medal from the 2011 World Spirits Competition. Thanks for noticing....

We've just completed a soft-launch for the new Distillery Row Website. There’ll be more content and features added soon, but the new site, built on the Wordpress publishing platform, is open for business! Take a look around and learn about the craft distilling revolution happening in Portland, and more specifically in the 20 city blocks of the SE Industrial Area. Meet the Row distilleries: Deco Distilling, House Spirits Distillery, Integrity Spirits, New Deal Distillery and Stone Barn Brandyworks, and plan your next tasting tour of the Row!  ...

Here's something a little different from us: a series of web banner ads for the 2011 Seattle Erotic Ball. The campaign we designed included posters, postcards, and print and web advertising, and was full of loud colors, grungy textures and gothic type. As you can see, we're fully adept at many different design styles and aesthetics. ...
