For our latest production, the Ultimate Choice website, we were intent on designing an experience that would move beyond the usual brochure sites standard for local home repair companies. And when Nohra from told us we could be creative as we wanted, we were also resolved on having a bit of fun in the process. We think we’ve hit the nail on the head by creating a site that was both a blast for us to build and visually enjoyable—a long, single page with an illustrated house and landscape as a frame to Nohra’s craftsmanship.
J&R Group owns and operates a number of properties in the Portland area. They came to us to create a website with a youthful and visually interesting approach.
Summer is swiftly approaching and, as a tease of warm days ahead, we worked with Salt & Straw to get their new and improved shop up. You heard us right: you can order their ice cream right from your little ol’ computer. How do they ship ice cream, you ask? Swiftly. (And with much love.)
Congrats also to Kim and Tyler also for making Portland proud as one of Oprah’s favorite ice creams in this month’s O Magazine’s Best Ice Cream Roundup.
A simple redesigned website for our Aspen friends, Ute City Cycles. The Gotham Rounded logo? Couldn’t help it!
We have just wrapped up a major redesign in collaboration our friends at Savoir Flair. This new iteration makes it even easier to find more of the stunning fashion and runway coverage these ladies have become so well known for.
We’ve just launched a new website for Vignette Brand Communications.
We knew we were in for a treat the first time we stopped in to meet the Vignette team; we’ve never been to a studio with such genuine warmth and as many smiles (the adorable baby was a bonus). This group is top notch. Brands need communication — these are the people you want telling your story.
We are upgrading client websites to Sonny (WordPress 3.3) this week. We think some of the new features are rad, especially the responsive admin area. Don’t just take our word for it, check out all the new features.
We have just launched a website for The Woodsman Tavern. This is our kind of place: the whiskey is plentiful, the oysters are bright, and the folks are genuine. We had an absolutely delightful time at their soft opening this past weekend. The doors are open now (5 to 10 daily); do stop in and say hello.
We designed the Woodsman website as a strong visual introduction to the atmosphere of this Southeast Portland gathering spot. This is a place where someone in the neighborhood could stop in for a drink and a snack on the way home or young lovers could while away the evening making eyes at each other over a bottle of wine and the most delicious courses you could imagine. (And, the website is a mobile-friendly, resposive design. Of course!)
As the Northwest sun finally joins us in the last month of summer, it seems completely appropriate that we would put the final touches on a new website for Midlothian Dermatology, located in Midlothian, Virginia. (Fact: Midlothian is the inspiration for the town of Middlesex, Virginia in Donnie Darko.)
Completely unsatisfied with dermatology websites that currently existed—”I want something different…I want design!”—Dr. Bohannon-Grant approached us to create a clean, minimal website with personality. We took the office’s passion for their work (they were, after all, just voted Richmond’s best dermatology office), art, and design to heart and created a site that is clean and modern with a friendly, upscale, artistic flair.
The end result is a far cry from a typical, sterilized doctor’s website (but, of course, has all the necessary accouterments: downloadable forms, easy access to information, easy to update). Midlothian Dermatology now has a site that reflects their honest, engaging office atmosphere and personality.
