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!...

May 15-24 is designated as International Pickle Week, though the days add up to 10 instead of the traditional seven. Maybe that's because pickles are so darn flavorful, that they can be fully experienced in just one short week! International Pickle Week was first celebrated in 1948, but pickles date back so far that no one can say for sure when they first appeared. The estimate for the origin of cucumbers in vinegar dates back more than 4,000 years. The fact that Pickle Week is an international celebration may be due to the variety of cultures that endorse the tasty treat. From...
