Newest Work and Highlights

cart-pros-home-pageLOGO DESIGN – The Cart Pros is a company that services golf carts in southwest Florida. The owner of this  new upstart company worked closely with me to come up with a logo that he now loves! Excitement is abound as the business is taking off on a new venture.

critchfield-postcardsPOSTCARD CAMPAIGN – Critchfield Construction is a high end Design-Build Contractor with a long history of excellence. The company needed to change agencies and start with a postcard campaign. Over the last year we’ve progressed with three messages to date, and reports are back that they are getting calls directly from this mailing. So now they’ve enlisted me to give their website some design tweaks and a small overhaul of content and navigation.

out-of-the-fireNEW WEBSITE DESIGN – Out of the Fire is a faithful client, fun to work with, fantastic food and environment, the whole package. I designed their original website, and kept it updated. As the story goes, the site needed updated for mobile responsiveness, and the client would like to be able to make certain minor changes on their own. I had a hand in much of the new photography as well as the complete new site design. Fun fun fun. Check them out if you’re ever in the area.

Hearth-wfEVENT LOGO REDESIGN + COLLATORAL – HEARTH has been a client of Hot Designs for many years. Everything from the website to logos for events, to marketing materials for the events. The logo for the annual Wine and Food event was in need of an update, so taking a nugget of the original concept, this new logo was developed. New invitations, email invites, ads and event tickets followed.

NEW WEBSITE DESIGN – As mentioned, HEARTH has been a client of Hot Designs for many years. Originally I was called on to “freshen up” an existing site. That site was in .html and I maintained all changes to it for a long time. Recently, a new site was designed in WordPress to keep up with mobile devices and to allow the clients to begin regular maintenance on their own. Changes are needed weekly and it was no longer practical for the client not to have access to the site. Besides needing a newer look. Nothing can sit for long any more, changes happen fast.
