  • TYPE / Web

    ROLE / Design, Concept, Development

    TECHNICAL STUFF / PHP, CSS, JavaScript

    Conceptual site that expanded from a school project into a potential 2011 site for DVLP Clothing. This full-screen site featured seasonal collections of all their sweet shit. Unfortunately, they went out of business after 5 strong years of inspiring and delivering to the fashion community. Guess they needed this site sooner. R.I.P. DVLP.

    A class project in identity creation quickly transformed into an opportunity to work with this client in the genesis of a full branding package. This consisted of a new logo, business cards, poster campaigns, flyers, and other branding applications. 2010 saw the creation of a Flash site, using 3D page-flip effects and fullscreen image backgrounds, while the current 2011 site displays an effective one-page development.

    The proud owner of Crema Coffee House, Noah Price, asked me to create an identity for the shop. (Thanks Noah!) After my hand-crafted wordmark was approved, Crema opened shop in the fall of 2009. Less than a year later, I had the opportunity to design and develop a typography influenced website that also has a mobile version. Growing to be quite the hotspot of Denver, CO, Crema is known for its monthly artists, eclectic music, damn-good coffee, and the handsome folks that run the joint. Crema loves you.
