Project: Logo for social media company
This logo is for a social media start-up. They had a technology that simplified searching on the internet into one app and then applied social media to that. I also created a website for them, but they opted out against the design. Saying it was not enough mainstream for them. I however liked the concept. I have included the spec design of the site below for the home page.
Project: Website for Teenage Author
Her name is Anna Caltabiano and she writes books about serious teenage problems, but unlike most writing about these issues she is an actual teen. She is an amazing writer with a crazy cool imagination. This all comes to life in her trilogy of books. She wanted a website that spoke to her age. So the result is what you see. A collection of doodles on each page around the words all bound up in a school like notebook. Check out the site and her books too.
Project: Website for Venture Capital Firm
I go to be honest this is one of my favorite sites. The simple idea is bringing ideas to life. This firm would help fund, guide, and mentor companies or individuals who had an idea they wanted to be bring to fruition. The idea of the site was to sketch simple ideas on napkins next to the final result from that seed of an idea. I created the logo, tagline, and website for Voss. Sadly this company did not make it, but this site still lives on in my portfolio.
Project: Logo for Progressive Church
This woman had the most amazing church. That was not judgmental and welcomed all. Once I talked to her I knew I had to create her logo. I also created a postcard too. If only every church could be this accepting and loving.

Project: Full Branding for Outplacement Agency

Project: Website for a Gymnastics Facility
My kids go to a great gymnastics studio in my town. I noticed that gymnastics did not just happen there. They were loving it long before their first class. Climbing monkey bars at the park. Walking across pipes over the creek, and just rolling around in our backyard. So the tagline “What you already love” came to be. and even better were the amazing pics I had to go with it. Enjoy the site . Oh and try a cartwheel again. It will make you feel like a kid even if your bones don’t.
Project: Logo for non-profit striving to save sea life
Project: Responsive Parallax Website for non-profit Safari Company
This guy I worked with on many high tech projects including Sales Portal (in my portfolio t00) , but one day he got sick of stock options and started a company that not only shows folk the flora and fauna of Africa but allows you to help the people of Africa too by volunteering. So I guess you could say I went from Silicon Valley to the Serengeti with him. A year ago after he moved back to Africa. He decided to go with a local web company too. Makes sense when your goal is to help the people of Africa. I still got these screen shots though of the site.
Project: Responsive Website for Singaporean Restaurant
This is Singaporean restaurant I have been going to for almost twenty years even my kids love it. They tell me they dream of Shiok at night. If you are ever in Menlo Park CA stop by and ask for Dennis. Anyway after his last website could not keep up with the times I created a new modern responsive one for him. I even set-up the photo shoot for all this yummy food. Trust me all the dishes for the shoot did not go to waste either.
Project: Logo for a Business Advisor

Project: Logo for High End Custom Aquarium Shop
This is project still in process. Marine Scene is a company who installs custom aquariums in your wall and then maintains them for you if need be.

This project included logo, color scheme, tagline and website in the works.

Project: Non-Profit Website to Empower Kids
This non-profit does a great thing. They fund a child’s education in exchange for that kid going overseas in the summer to a third world country to help the poor and unloved people of this world. The idea is one person can inspire 1000 lives in a third whirl country and then that can keep growing and growing. Well you get the picture. The infinity symbol was the simple idea that grew into the logo and then the whole website.
Project: T-shirt for movement to support ‘Free Play” for kids
As a parent of two school age kids I am very concerned with how little time kids get these days to simply climb a tree, build a fort, or even play make believe. So I created this shirt as a reminder to all parents to pencil in free-time on their calendars.
Project: T-shirt for our church

This was a full branding assignment for an HVAC company out of Redwood City. The challenge take a mundane thing like heating & cooling and give it some life. The perfect solution color. Take the blue, oranges, and reds associated with keeping temperature balance in a house and apply them in a simple, graphical modern way. The color can’t help but make you happy. Needless to say the clent was smiling too.

Project: Full Branding for non-profit that supports kids with cancer
This is an amazing organization. The woman who runs it has a heart of gold. She lost her kid Frankie to cancer many years ago, but his dying wish was to have a foundation that helped families pay the bills like power, mortgage and groceries. After paying the hospital bills families are left with little money. So he started a foundation to support these families. I created their logo, website, tagline, and ad for them and I continue to help anyway I can.
