All Naturall Site

naturall web site

I recently wrapped up and launched a small web site for Naturall Products, a division of ABM (whose site I also designed and developed). Naturall Products wanted a web presence to call their own, without being completely separated from their parent site. And since they are still developing their full product line and partnerships with retailers, a microsite was a perfect solution since it is more flexible than printed promotional materials, and in most cases more cost-effective as well.

Northernlight Filmworks

As a business owner, I can definitely agree with the statement that referrals are the highest compliment a client can give. So I was flattered when Jennifer Driscoll (whose blog I designed and developed) put me in touch with John and Jennifer Moon of Northernlight Filmworks. John and Jennifer are talented cinematographers (mostly for weddings) and together we are rebranding their company, from logo (seen here) to web site and blog. They are a fun team and do great work (check out their current blog) and I can’t wait for the process to continue. Stay tuned!

A Short Getaway

Andy and I decided a while ago to head out of town for the holiday weekend, but last week we made a last minute decision to make a break for the beach. Based on a combination of great flight prices and hotel deals, we scored a great trip to Vero Beach in Florida. Our hotel had some unique amenities and despite dodging a few rain storms while we were there, we had a wonderful and relaxing weekend.

In the Bag

I have been searching for quite some time for a purse that is stylish, versatile, large, affordable and (here’s the biggest challenge) eco-friendly or non-leather. I kept being drawn to the shiny styles of department store designers, but was not impressed with the price tags or the materials they were made of, so I took my search online. And I must admit, when I saw this purse, I knew it was the ONE. Unfortunately, even on sale it was still more than I wanted to spend. However, lo and behold, a little online searching and I found it at for a fraction of the price.

I love that this bag from Matt & Nat uses recycled “Japanese paper” instead of leather and the faux suede interior lining is made from recycled bottles. Now that’s what I call a fashion statement

A New Site for Paws & Think

paws and think

I have mentioned Paws & Think more than once on this site, and a perk of being my own boss is that I have been able to not only increase my involvement with their volunteer programs, but also offer my professional skills as part of the tech team.

That being said, I did what I do best and redesigned and developed a new and improved site for the organization. I took their old site, which was just using a generic template with a confusing navigation structure, and gave them a custom template that I integrated with my favorite content management system. Next up will be designing a custom e-newsletter for the organization to send out mass emails about upcoming volunteer opportunities and events.

Design talk aside, if you have been looking for an organization to donate your time, talents or financial support to, I highly suggest you consider Paws & Think. I can say that I have experienced first hand the positive impact it has on both people and pets.

Another record-breaking Mutt Strut

Yesterday we packed up Skyler and headed down to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway for the 6th Annual Mutt Strut. Having also gone in 2008 and in 2007, this year’s 8,000+ participants raised over $350,000 for the Humane Society of Indianapolis and blew away last year’s record-breaking 4,000 attendees.

Despite the heat, we had a great time and were glad that we could be join by our friends Brian and Liz and Scarlet.

Sunny California

We’re fresh back from a long weekend in California, where we go at least once a year to visit my brother Nathan, Allison, Adam and Logan (shown together above, lounging in sand hole we dug at the beach). Since we only had a short time there, we skipped San Francisco and Monterey and stayed close by instead, visiting Coyote Point and Half Moon Bay.

Upper White River Watershed Alliance


Web design and development is typically my most requested service, however, I do love the occasional identity/logo development opportunities that arise. One such recent project was to develop an identity for the Upper White River Watershed Alliance. Not only did I get to design the logo for an environmentally important organization, but I also got to collaborate with Jon Eynon — a talented developer and great guy to work with.

Interested in some of my other logo work? Check out what I designed for ClearWish, A Recipe For Wellness, The Chicken & The Egg and more.
