Band Venue Poster Graphic Design

Mishawaka Poster Design

This live concert poster was created for the Mishawaka Amphitheater to promote a summer show at the venue, as well as promotions around the Colorado Front Range.  Wish We Were Floyd is a live band that recreates the the Pink Floyd experience at their shows, so the design had to quickly communicate the connection to Pink Floyds' music by using classic imagery and font treatments that are unmistakably "Floydian". The title font treatment was modernized by creating a 3D vanishing depth on the lettering, and then adding highlights to enhance the effect.  Strong and bold event info at the bottom pulled ...

Virginia Time-Lapse Star Trails Photography

Virginia Night Sky

This time-lapse photograph series was taken on May 10th, 2010, between 12am and 1:45am, just outside Charlottesville, Virginia. Over 80 individual exposures, each lasting 30 seconds, were later assembled in Adobe Photoshop to reveal the star trails and movement of the night sky. The light against the horizon is minor "light polution" from the city of Charlottesville, and just out of view in the upper left corner of this photo is the North Star.

Boulder Colorado Website Design

The Prairie Club Website

The goal for The Prairie Club project was to take their existing flash website and site functionality, and convert it into an SEO friendly HTML website with a custom built content management system.  The primary challenge was to maintain the clients' current branding, look & feel, and overall user experience using only HTML, CSS, and Javascript libraries. Full flash websites are inherently bad for search engines, and generally don't produce high results in organic search listings.  By converting this site into HTML for the Prairie Club, not only are search listings and organic results greatly improved, but they are able to ...

Black Dog Timberworks

We met Rusty Partridge, owner of Black Dog Timberworks, through a client referral in 2009.  Black Dog Timberworks is located in western Maine, and the scope of the project was to create a great looking logo, and then build a website that highlighted his custom timberframe structures and others services that he could manage the content of going forward.  Moving into the online realm was a big step for Black Dog Timberworks, but we were both convinced that with a great site, highly optimized for Search Engines, his business would certainly grow in 2010 and beyond. Black Dog Timberworks builds hand-crafted, ...

Indian Peaks Golf Course

The Indian Peaks Golf Course logo redesign was awarded to Cloudburst after an open call for proposals.  The Golf Course was interested in updating the Course logo and overall public image, and then using those new brand standards on their new website and merchandise. They asked for a logo that symbolized their name, set them apart from the competition and conveyed a professional, elegant, and contemporary image for their Golf Course.  We held weekly design feedback meetings with the Board, where we presented design concepts and discussed new ideas to explore the following week.  Out of this revision and feedback process, ...

Denver Colorado Logo Design

Sigma Logo Design

Sigma Development Group is a Denver software development company that contacted us late in 2009 to create a new logo for their company as they went through a name change in anticipation of an upcoming product launch in early 2010. They had a very clear direction and color scheme in mind for the logo design, and we worked closely with them on color variations as well as font treatments on this design. This project was happening at the same time as the company name change, so we experimented with many different tag-lines on the logo, and finally settled ...
