University Ministries















In Autumn 2007 I redesigned the University Ministries Website to coincide with the transition of Campus Ministries transitioning to University Ministries.

It was a fast process, I had to turn it around in less than two weeks and the end result was pretty cool as I got to incorporate some great design elements from my colleges in the UC print department.

This Autumn 2008 I got the opportunity again to  make some fun updates to the site. Since last year I set up a stronger style sheet, I was able to roll out some major changes in just a couple days. This newest version incorporates some wild design elements I adapted from Brian Glassco's print work for them.

I stuck to my design rules I set up[ for the web, but I also had some fun by changing out the background with a a small repeating star pattern  gif and I also edited a local version of the global style sheet so that all the reds became hot pink, reflecting the new print direction.

40 Creative Design Layouts: Getting Out Of The Box

Great new article by smashing magazine.

"Over the last months we have seen a strong trend towards more individual web designs. These designs often use realistic motifs from our regular life as visuals. However, apart from visual design elements one can also get creative with the layout of the site – its structure and the way the information is presented and communicated. To provide you with some ideas of how exactly it can be done, we have been collecting examples of creative design layouts."

Campus Card Services


We launched the first Campus Cards Services site:

Seattle-Tehran Poster Show


So, apparently there was this really sweet poster show at Bumpershoot.

But, it'll be shown again elsewhere on Sept. 4th.

I checked out the website and it looks amazing-- it's a show displaying posters from Seattle and Tehran (Iran) side by side.
What a really sweet idea.

But, don't take my word for it. Check out the website yourself.
Seattle-Tehran Poster Show


I had no idea there was such cool design coming out of the Middle East.
