Meridian Food Bank

Created a new look for Meridian Food Bank recently and will be utilizing it on their new website as well. The client stressed that it was important to keep the “bowl theme”, because that was a strong memory for he and his wife from their missionary work. “Too many empty bowls.” he said, during our … Read more

New look for Graphic Zen

Updated the site – call it spring fever I guess, or still striving for that “zen-like” state of the website. Looking to shake things up a bit – stay tuned for a new sister site, and something of interest for non-profit groups… Cheers.

Website tip #1.

This should be a no-brainer, own your domain name! We’ve recently been involved with projects with clients who let other designers or webhost providers register their domain name “as a courtesy to them”.

Success in Seattle

Cross one off the “bucket list”. Finished the Seattle Rock ‘n Roll Marathon on June 27th. To make it even better, proposed to my girlfriend afterwards! Now back to work!

Appears they are working the staff too hard, or they don’t hold the production staff to the same exacting ‘You’ve got to get this right’ mentality that I see being preached on The Next Food Network Star. Don’t get me wrong – I love the Food Network. It’s … Read more

Thought for designers (& business owners)

Attention entrepreneurs/business owners: what business are you in? Attended a great business seminar today and was asked that question by one of the speakers. If you answered, “I’m in _____ business”, chances are that you are not as successful as you should be. The speaker challenged us to think that we were all in the … Read more

Marathon..and on…and on.

Training continues for the Seattle RNR Marathon. Did 14 miles last Saturday and came to the realization that this is eating up a lot of life. Eat, run, sleep. Occasionally get some work in.
