So Shirts Up has been pretty hectic over the past few weeks due to an expansion happening. And the WebSmith office happens to be located within Shirts Up, so there’s been a ton of tearing down, cutting, framing, finishing, and all other sorts of projects going on… But the dust has finally settled and all that’s left are some final interior touches to make the office/retail side look awesome!
As for current WebSmith projects, we are currently working on the website for Evans Sinclair photography. We started with branding and are moving onto getting things live on the web.
Evans Sinclair Photography is actually ran by Corey Hester. Evans Sinclair is a play off of one of his mentors in photography who had the last name of Sinclair. So, to fully expand how the name should be taken in, it should read like Evans portrayal of Sinclair style Photography…. Make sense? Here’s the logo we came up with:
Also on the upcoming list is the finalization of the 907 Ice website, it’s already in beta testing and can be seen here for a sneak peak. And there are a few more projects that are currently in the works for getting finalized. We’ve gotten the OK for around 4 future contracts, but until the pen hits the paper, anything can happen.
Kyle Armbrust taking to the webs
Pro Rider Kyle Armbrust just dropped by the shop and had WebSmith do a little tweaking on his site. Nothing major, we just add some social media buttons with CSS transitions for a little extra punch and created a slideshow background that highlights some of his better photos.
Feel free to check it out here. It’ll take about 5 seconds to get the whole experience, but it’s a good 5 seconds.
It’s been a very busy couple of weeks for WebSmith! We finished up some branding for Fat Mayan Coffee, a coffee grower based out of Guatemala, as well as helping with design in preparation for The Culmination which is set to kick off tomorrow night at 6pm at the Dena’ina Center. For those of you who didn’t get tickets, bummer. It has been sold out for weeks… But WebSmith and Shirts Up will be there!
Also, there may be some big things in the works for WebSmith in the very near future. We had an offer to join an Advisory Board with a locale advertising specialist, hears a snippet from the release:
The Innovate Advisory board was developed to bring fresh perspective to the ever-changing marketing landscape. All Advisory board members are independent professionals, not employees of Innovate, and for good reason. We like to work with industry leaders that stay true to their craft and are current and active in their discipline. This prevents our work from becoming stale and instead creates a culture of constant growth, improvement and progress. Combined with a requirement of being passionate about their discipline and top professionals, each individual serves to recommend, inform and sometimes perform services relevant to the needs of Innovate clients.
And for a tiny bit of bragging, I (Vern) just went to Coachella Weekend 1 and had a blast! Outstanding performances: Beardyman ( absolutely incredible and if you are at weekend 2, see him!!!), alt-J, Major Lazer, Phoenix (only when R Kelly came on stage), Pretty Lights, 2 Chainz, and others… If you get the chance to go, either weekend, I highly suggest you do it!
Born and Bred are at it again!
Just spent the weekend working with the crew over at Born & Bred to revamp their site for the Spring / Summer line. We mixed up the colors and gave the overall site a facelift. All of the major functionality is still there, it’s just a little prettier .
Joe Hamming from Scenery Creative is the design leader over at B&B and he supplied 99% of the design changes. WebSmith took a few liberties with functionality and interactive graphics. But all in all we love working with those guys and look forward to the next batch of changes!
