Polyurb Website Builder
Role: Custom Development, System Administration, Website
Polyurb is a WordPress-based website builder. Our goal with Polyurb was to reduce the cost and complexity of having a quality WordPress site. Polyurb combines the ease of management and predictable monthly subscription costs of platforms like Shopify and Squarespace with the power, scalability, and deep and broad feature set of WordPress and its ecosystem.
Our extensive experience in WordPress development meant that we were able to launch within two years.
Founded in 2012, streetwear designer Cultural Blends sells their own clothing and accessories line. They also retail vintage threads and collector sneakers.
Cultural Blends’ old wordmark wasn’t reflective of what the brand had grown into. We assessed the brand’s history and customer demographics to design a new wordmark. The new wordmark respects the brand’s street wear and sports heritage, while appealing equally to men and women. It’s also visually compatible with the existing logo symbol, which carries a lot of brand equity.
BeSpoke Speech and Language
Role: Custom Development, Game Development
BeSpoke Speech and Language is a resource for interactive, digital language therapy materials.
They needed several speech therapy video games ported from Windows to the browser. They also needed a way to embed the games in a members-only area of their website. We developed browser ports of the games and the website embed feature. Our expertise in software development meant we were able to do so cost effectively.
M Solutions LLC is a Portland, Oregon area business that provides property maintenance and other services.
M Solutions sought a logo that reflected the company’s values of service and achievement. We delivered a clean design with bold lines that would be easily recognizable from a distance and have good eye appeal when applied to vehicles.
Irvina Kanarek is an author, speaker, consultant, and non-profit founder. She has written over 700 articles and been published in the Orange County Register and Los Angeles Times. Her preventive healthcare non-profit helped over 6,000 people in the United States and abroad.
Irvina needed a centralized place to market her services and new book. We stepped in to handle the technical issues and add the final visual polish to give her website a professional and cohesive look.
Blast Kids’ Parties is a children’s birthday party character company. They’re on a mission to make the world a better place. In addition to doing awesome birthday parties, they’re giving back with a character development program for kids.
We delivered a fun visual identity that taps into the child in all of us, without feeling cheesy or cheap. We also developed a custom WordPress site and made them visible in search with an SEO campaign.
Superheroes in Training is a character development program for children. The program is run by Blast Kids’ Parties, a children’s birthday party character company.
The client wanted a deck of cards designed for the “7 Special Superhero Powers” — responsibility, respect, honesty, safety, forgiveness, health, and teamwork. Each child that participates in the character development workshop receives a deck. The client supplied the text for each card, and we conceptualized and produced the artwork for the front of the cards and the design of the backs. The art captures elements of the company’s homegrown superhero Blast’s mythos. We felt this was an important touch because the workshop is taught by Blast. We kept the cards visually connected to the brand through use of the company color gradient and fonts.
Ken Rosenfeld Glass Art
Ken Rosenfeld is a glass artist specializing in contemporary lamp work paperweights. His art is in the permanent collections of the Museum of American Glass in New Jersey, the Canterbury Museum in New Zealand, and the Bergstrom-Mahler Museum in Wisconsin. It has also been featured in the Smithsonian Institution’s catalog.
We revamped the site’s front end to more closely match what the client had envisioned and fixed the broken eCommerce setup. We also migrated the site to our web hosting platform to stop the outages the site had experienced previously.
Raiders of the Lost Clam!!! is a feature-length comedy/sci-fi/horror film produced by SCi CO Films.
SCi CO Films needed a cover design that met Amazon’s art requirements and fit within a modest budget. We watched many scenes from the film and talked extensively with the filmmaker to ensure we could communicate the feel of the film to viewers. The result of our efforts was this genre-blending, surreal design.

Straighttalktv is a local-access cable TV show. It features interviews and entertainment from local entrepreneurs, artists, comedians, musicians, and more. If you don’t have cable in Oregon, catch it on Facebook Live or watch past episodes on YouTube.
Straighttalktv needed an upgrade from their old site on a free website builder. We made them a basic site that allowed them to easily update their own content.
Bach in Socket is 14 compositions suitable for a variety of instruments. The compositions deconstruct and reconstruct J.S. Bach’s compositions, blurring the line between high and low art.
This project required branding that would work on many variations of album covers and black and white sheet music. We created a logo set that would work for the required applications. We also designed album covers that embodied the pop art aesthetic of the music.

Author David Cross is the CEO of Indispensable Leadership, founder of Bow Tie Tours which was awarded “Best Tour Company in Pennsylvania” by Travel & Hospitality magazine, and was a successful criminal defense attorney for 25 years.
The client needed book and cover design for paperback, hardback, and Kindle editions of Indispensable. He also desired that specific visual elements be included in the cover design. We produced work that reflects that the book is historical, but not unapproachable, and incorporates the required visual elements.
