We recently had the pleasure of working on BuckForColorado.com, a high profile project for DaGama Web Studio. Wow, what a pleasure this was to work on. As the first political campaign website we’ve worked on, we got the opportunity to bring to life the vision and strategy created by DaGama. This project had everything: marketing, strategy, social networking, online donations, modern development, and great design. Not to mention the opportunity to work side by side with a future Senator and campaign team who were open to new ideas, to looking outside the box and stretching norms and past trends of political design and marketing.
Working with DaGama Web Studio, it was possible to focus almost entirely on beautiful aesthetics as well as having our voice heard when it came to design direction and strategy. DaGama did an amazing job at laying out the scope and direction for the project, and being conducive to letting us do what we do best - design and development. We would like to thank Lori (CEO, DaGama Web Studio) for including us in this project.
The 2008 presidential campaign of Barack Obama broke new ground with its emphasis on branding and marketing techniques by utilizing a variety of mediums based in social networking and online grassroots efforts to propel him into the White House. By thoroughly examining these efforts, as well as peeking at many other campaigners around the nation, DaGama was able to lay out a specific marketing and development plan that allowed us to deliver a dynamic web site and brand, entirely focused on creating a grassroots marketing effort to propel Ken Buck of Colorado into the United States Senate in 2010.
Taking on work on a pro bono basis can be very difficult to manage, but extremely rewarding. We try to take on as much pro bono as possible for causes and organizations that we feel are truly worth it, but it’s rare that we can take on more than one or two projects per year. (more…)
This was created as a presentation piece at an awards reception. I was honored with the Angie Southard Award for excellence in art, with an emphasis in graphic arts at the University of Northern Colorado in 2005.
Compiling quotes typographically with original photography and digital media, this piece is a visualization of my philosophy regarding design and communication arts at the time.
“the idea of one’s own self image is constantly being challenged…commercialized showcase continues to push forth superficial morals and values…as a whole are debilitating…progressively more and more difficult to stand up for the person and individual one truly is…the everpresent pressure of conformitynormality…it seems I have always been attracted to the subtleties of the internal aura which oftentimes affects the outside whole…many ideas are for the most part overlooked by the conventional stereotypes of beauty…it is this redirected thought of what makes something special that continues to push my imagery forward”
