Website Design for Fishing Lure co.

Dynamic Lures, a fishing lure company out of Grand Junction, asked me to design an e-commerce website design for them. They design custom lures along with lifestyle apparel for the fishing fanatics in North America. They’re currently using WordPress, which is a great platform for building an information site. 99% of the sites I build are on built using WordPress. However if you’re looking to build an online store, Shopify offers a much better platform. The cost increases quite a bit, however the user interface is designed specifically for e-commerce. With an endless amount of detailed reports, Facebook ad integration, Mail Chimp integration, coupon promoting and analytics out the wahoo, Shopify is awesome! Check them out.

Below is my website mockup for Dynamic Lures. All imagery is filler and probably copyright protected somewhere. But this is just a sample to show the big boss man.

Breckenridge Distillery Logo Wall Painting

The folks at Breckenridge Distillery asked me to paint their logo on the new restaurant they were building in Breckenridge, Colorado. This was a pretty simple job, and that’s probably why it turned out so good. The carpenter used some materials to give the wood a charred finish, love it, looks awesome. And being that the logo is pretty vintage looking, it makes the painting look that much cooler. Thanks to Bryan for letting me take a crack at this project, looks great.

The painting was done using a projector and some basic house paint from the folks at Ace Hardware.

By the way, if you haven’t been to Breckenridge Distillery or if you haven’t tried any of their spirits, I highly recommend it. Great flavor, high end flavor, and always goes down smooth. Awesome folks working their as well.

Home Care Business Card Design

I’ve been working on some branding for Heroes Home Care out of Colorado Springs. Logo, letterhead, business cards, etc. Below is a mockup for a business card design. This is home care so I didn’t go with anything too flashy, keeping it simple and bold. I think about the audience who’s receiving the information and it reminds me to keep everything crisp and legible. Not that I ever design anything too outlandish, just putting it out there.  web designer colorado springs, web designer denver, home care website design, home care logo design, home care logo, home care website, graphic designer colorado springs, logo designer colorado springs, home care business card, home care logo

Home Care Website Design

Website

Heroes Home Care out of Colorado Springs asked us to put together a website design mockup for them. Below is my breakdown of the homepage along with a JPEG mockup. All images are temporary fillers but you get the idea. Designing sites in Illustrator, prior to actual construction, is a great way get a good visual reference of the direction you’re going to go in. It can also save you a ton of time. Work smarter, not harder ding-dong.

Header – Logo followed by call-to-action on the left
Menu – Services will have a sub menu for the services offered.
Main photo – This area can be a slider to navigate through various images or services offered however I don’t think it’s necessary. I like the single image with your logo and slogan, along with another call-to-action. I imagine the audience isn’t going to be too tech savvy, simple is better. This image is nice, would be better with a senior veteran in place of the elderly lady.
About us – Simple message that lets the audience know what you do and the area you serve. This will help with SEO as well.
Services – Simple and direct, each image will link to a separate page about each service with detailed information.
Testimonials – We can rotate out new testimonials as needed, this is great for building trust with new clients.
Call us today – Another call-to-action (I use the word call instead of contact because I know how important it is to have that personal experience with someone and emails just don’t deliver). I think you’re more likely to get someones business by making it personal.
Footer – Another logo for brand awareness with a short description about your business. Followed by navigation and contact info.

Hockey Website Design

Website

Out of the goodness of my heart, and being that the boys that run the Bud Cup Hockey Tournament are so generous to me, I offered to design a website for them. They don’t really have any online presence to promote this hockey tournament so I thought it would be a nice idea to put them on the map. Below is a JPEG mockup of the hockey website I designed. I did use the Budweiser logo for a bit of influence on the website layout. Not a lot of imagery, just some cool graphics. The actual site is already underway as I type. Should be wrapping up in the next week or so.

Logo

The logo concept is based off the new Bud Light logo, the new Budweiser logo and the old Budweiser logo. I didn’t want to completely rip off Budweiser, but I think it turned out pretty nice. Clean and simple, nothing to flashy and nothing to contemplate. It just works. I also used the old time AB crest, it adds a nice touch and helps to push the Budweiser theme a bit more.
