Newest Work and Highlights

RACKS CARDS – The idea is to get these into the hands of tourists in Aruba. A pretty fun project!

ANNUAL APPEAL – Each November, HEARTH sends a mailer to loyal supporters and other lists, for the purpose of fund raising. The theme this year was Action.

WEBSITE UPKEEP – CUBM has been a Hot Designs client for many years. I developed and designed this site and maintain the changes to it on a weekly basis. All graphics, functionality, everything on the site. The slides are designed and rotated as events come and go. Click the graphic to read more and go to live website.


NEW WEBSITE DESIGN – Out of the Fire Cafe is a local favorite with a following from all over. We designed a new WordPress and mobile friendly website in 2016. I took a lot of the new photography you see throughout the site also.


WEBSITE OVERHAUL AND NEW EVENT GRAPHICS – I redesigned HEARTH’s website in 2006 and have maintained it since then. In 2016 it was time. Things move fast in the internet world, so we did a complete overhaul of the website, putting it into WordPress and make it responsive. Then as event dates came around, we freshened up some things there too. The Wine & Food logo was in need of some love, so we kept the concept but redesigned it, adding color and additional graphics, and just tightening it up. And of course all of the marketing for it were redone also.
