The Design-O-Blog 5000™

Logo and business cards for new internet television site, Open Affairs that will examine transparency in all aspects of technology, government and healthcare. The red "person" is a combination of the O and the A of the name and also symbolizes a transmission tower broadcasting to the world and (if you squint really hard), a keyhole for unlocking previously hidden information....

Meet this cute new Wordpress website we created for Muffinhead, a local start-up that makes dog jackets from recycled "people clothes." This lovable scamp is just a puppy now, but thanks to the powerful back-end tools in Wordpress its owner can help him grow into a full-grown "big-dog" of a website....

We designed this quick flyer for the newly-formed Distillery Row, a guild of 6 local distilleries all located in Southeast Portland. The flyer will be used at this year's PICA TBA:10 festival where the distilleries will be hosting a special bar as part of The Works at Washington High School from September 9 – 19th with a special Distillery Row Happy Hour on Tuesday September 14th. Next up: branding and a new website. ...

We've been working on this site for a little while now with San Francisco firm, Feldish Design and we're pleased to announce that the official website for Fullbloom Baking Company is now live! This was a very fun collaboration with Creative Director, Debbie Glass of Feldish, who brings a refined eye and playful sense of color to all of her work. The Fullbloom branding developed by Feldish was indeed a pleasure to work with, and you can see for yourself how the design just makes you feel happy. It's also a nice reflection of the core values and progressive philosophy of...

DBD just completed a new Wordpress-based website for Passive Investment Advisor Marketing expert, Wendy J. Cook Communications. The site nicely reflects the company's sensibilities and no-nonsense approach to addressing its clients' unique marketing challenges. Company founder, Wendy Cook is not just a great writer and marketer, but a very nice person to work with as well!...

It's nice to take a pause in our creative work every once-in-a-while and give a hearty "thank you" to our new and continuing clients! Obviously our business would be nothing without our clients, but we like to think of them as our partners--after all, we're all in this together. We've been fortunate that almost all of our business comes from referrals -- here's some new clients we'd like you to meet: Muffinhead Dog Outerwear for dogs locally-made from sustainable and recycled materials (people clothes!) Website coming soon...

This is a new logo we just completed for Wendy J. Communications, a small marketing firm that specializes in writing, editing and presentation services for Passive Investment Advisors. The logo mark works on 3 levels (and maybe more): The concentric circles create the two "C"s of "Cook Communications", the triangle space is a pencil tip with the type completing the shaft, and it's also a target with an arrow hitting the bull's eye. The typeface? Archer, of course. We’re also working on a cool new Wordpress-based website for this business that is launching soon!...

We just revised the branding for Peter Champ, a Portland area realtor and long-time supporter of DBD+A. The updated brand is punchier (Pete was once an amateur boxer), greener (he's Earth Advantage S.T.A.R. certified and a Trade Partner with the Energy Trust of Oregon), and just plain cooler (Pete's very cool for a Brit). Now we just have to update his website to match! See the previous version of his logo here....

The Better Burnside Alliance, a group of neighborhood citizens and businesses who are proposing a better plan for the West Burnside and NW Couch Couplet in Portland, wanted a new blog-based news website in a hurry. And, we delivered this cool little Wordpress website that can grow as big as needed – conveying news, updates, links to other articles and studies, and more. ...

Here's an e-blast we created and coded for Feldish Design and FullBloom Baking Company. Got a message you need to get out to your email list? We can create an email that is cross-platform compatible, smart-sized, spam-compliant, and pretty too!...
