New site designed and launched for Pep Ventura!

Seems like it’s been awhile since I’ve finished any new work and been able to play ‘show and tell’. Here’s the latest site I designed and built – launched today for Pep Ventura Studios in Irving TX.

I had a fun time making lots of collages and experimenting stylistically. I’m pretty happy with how it all turned out, it’s not my usual ‘look’.

“Hit So Hard : The Life & Near Death Story of Patty Schemel” site launches

Once again working with Los Angeles based design firm Riot Structure (who provided the graphic and web design), we coded out and built the site for this documentary about drummer Patty Schemel. Hit So Hard” Debuts at this year’s SXSW – check the site for additional screening dates and more information.

Hit So Hard s a pull-no-punches portrait of the hell-and-back life of Patty Schemel, the hard-hitting drummer of Courtney Love’s seminal rock band ‘Hole’ during its peak years. As a young girl who always knew she was ‘different’ from the other kids in her farm town home outside of Seattle, Patty never dreamed she would one day have her picture on the cover of ‘Rolling Stone.’ But she also never fathomed that she could lose it all. A true survivor of what we now know was the disaffected ‘slacker’ generation, Patty found herself, like her friend Kurt Cobain, embraced by the dark side. An unprecedented and unflinching inside look at one of the 90s most crucial and controversial groups.

“Where’s The Cap’n?” – Osaka Popstar pays tribute with new video and song.

One of this year’s most enjoyable projects was designing the landing page and promotional materials for the new video and song “Where’s the Cap’n?” by  Osaka Popstar. The video features rare footage from vintage Cap’n Crunch TV commercials from the 60′s and 70′s that should delight all who grew up seeing them air on Saturday mornings, their own bowl of crunchy goodness in hand. It was great fun incorporating classic Cap’n Crunch and Osaka Popstar imagery into something new.

The song is available as a free download, watch the video and get more details here:

I hope you enjoy watching and listening to it as much as we did working on the webpage!
