Newest Work and Highlights

The studio has been busy!  Check out some of the latest projects hot off the press:

Out of the Fire Café – Brunch billboard – look for it on Route 31 – on the way to Seven Springs

Main Street Wine Bar – Hot Designs created the original sign for the wine bar, post, lamp and all. Now we’re adding some “riders” to the bottom, as the client feels there’s a need to make it clear it’s also a Restaurant. Now there is a new store going in so we’re adding to the sign. Still in progress.

Main Street Wine Bar – An exciting new project for the wine bar, the liquor laws changed, so they are expanding and opening a wine store in the bar! These are front and back table cards. More to come …wine-bar-table-cards-store

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

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. Read more and go to live website >

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 so it’s responsive. Then as annual 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 pieces had to be redone also.
