DIY Refacing Experience

The DIY scene is in full force. Jamie came to us with her brainchild, Outside the Box. She saw this as an opportunity to provide a hassle free experience for users to pursue DIY cabinet refacing. Already knowledgeable in cabinet refacing herself, she wanted to create a start to finish, all in one shop and learning center.

We worked with Velare Media and developed a web experience to accomplish Jamie’s goals. It teaches all the skills needed for cabinet refacing with a video series and the store stocks their quality custom doors and refacing supplies. Users can order unfinished cabinet doors and supplies but they pride themselves on their custom stains and tinted lacquers.

Product Photography

Outside the Box wanted the website to focus on the quality of the product they produce, from solid wood doors to their hand-applied stains and glazes. We scheduled multiple photoshoots with our photographers and their team to take photos during each stage of the manufacturing process. We highlight these photos in the product information sections of the site.

steam power Branding

Our client builds one of a kind costumes and accessories that look like they came straight out of a science fiction film. Many gears and ornate decorations are found in their work. Since the movement is inspired by 19th-century industrial steam-powered machinery. We wanted this logo to capture the Neo-Victorian side by playing with filigree and clockwork. We used two ornate typefaces that normally would clash together to pull off the vintage retro look.

Responsive website design

We worked with Velare Media and rebuilt the layout for Steampunk Maniacs. The site is fully responsive. This means the site shrinks to fit cell phones, tablets, and desktop computer displays. This is a must have for an optimal viewing experience.

Bold Oregon Wine

Parrett Mountain Cellars a small winery and tasting room run by a husband and wife duo. The winery specializes in bold red and Pinot Noir and the wine is yearly limited production runs. They run events throughout the year and more recently built a lodge-style tasting room. At the time of contact, their new tasting room was in the early stages of construction.

Making wine is their labor of love and they needed an update to their website that reflected this. We worked with Velare Media and updated their website from a build-your-own GoDaddy site to a full-fledged WordPress site.

Photography

They had very little in the way of photography and what they did have was low resolution. We met up with Parrett Mountain Cellars at their old tasting room and winery in order to take photos for the website. We took photos of the tasting room, their wine, and their small vineyard. During this time the lodge was still under construction.

Wine Club + E-Commerce

Parrett Mountain Cellars sells a good portion of their wine online so we created an eCommerce shop for them using WooCommerce. They also have a wine club with Silver and Gold tier, built right into their storefront.

High Temp Applications

Western Industrial Ceramics has expanded since 1971 to serve clients in the ten Western States of the US. Their two locations in Portland, OR, and Los Angeles, CA are complete with refractory contracting, manufacturing, and stocking.

While working with Velare Media we were approached by Western Industrial Ceramics with a need for a visual overhaul to their website. Their last site update was in 2009 and their website looked dated even back then. They were interested in increasing their visual face as their old site was barebones and lacked in images.

Quality Photography

Western Industrial Ceramics was interested in displaying their facilities with pride. Because they are able to do many different thermal management solutions, they wanted to show first hand what they offered. We were given a tour of their robust facilities for us to take photography and video.

Color Coded

Our team created a color system on the Western Industrial Ceramics website for organizational purposes. Orange for refractory installation services, blue for solid refractory products and supplies, and yellow for soft refractory products (e.g. textiles).

Trade Industry Printing

In 2001, Rick’s Printing opened in Portland strictly devoted to providing trustworthy print services for trade print suppliers. With multiple printing presses, quality print jobs, and a quick turnaround time, they gathered a large list of clients often through word of mouth. As other printers sprung up in the area, the one place they lagged behind was in their web experience.

We worked alongside Velare Media to rebuild a fresh printing website. Our goal was to reflect their attention to detail in their print work with a sharp website that highlights the company’s strengths. We worked closely with them throughout the creative process.

One Page Scroll

Their original website was barebones. Rick’s Printing did not want to stray too far from what they already had. Because they wanted something simple and straightforward, we opted with a Single-Page Scrolling website. We placed their printers at the forefront with large images and printer statistics. A looping video as you enter the site shows one of their printers in action.

We met up with Rick’s Printing at their printshop for a full photoshoot. Video and photos of their printers, the shop, and the close-knit staff were taken for the website and for promotional use.

Dear America What Would You Change

Dear America What Would You Change? Project by Mark Sheldon Boehly - Graphicsbyte Creative

Dear America What Would You Change?

Public Opinions Matter

Have you ever wanted to interview the public and get their opinion about changes they would make in America?

Public Opinions Matter

Have you ever wanted to interview the public and get their opinion about changes they would make in America?

The Purpose

In 2013 I, Mark Boehly studied graffiti in my senior thesis class at Portland State University. I was inspired by an artist named Steve Powers. He painted fifty murals on the rooftops of West Philadelphia. Each mural was a part of a fictional love story where a man was trying to get the attention of a woman who rides the nearby train. The series was called “A love letter for you.”

In my thesis class, I had to brainstorm and execute a fictional project of my own as if it were a real event. I decided to use a similar model as Powers only my story would relate to current events. I wanted to know more about the people that surround us every day and give them a voice that could be expressed through art. Part of my commute to school was to ride the Green Line Max. I surveyed over fifty passengers’ and asked them “if you could change one thing in America what would it be?”

After the survey was completed I realized a lot of people had the same views. I choose the best opinions and designed a series of posters out of their answers. I wanted the design to be as raw as possible so I went with a hand-drawn look using stacked typography. I branded the event and created a DA monogram using the projects question as the tagline. This logo was strategically placed inside each of the posters so they could stand alone if needed.

The designs were printed on large four foot black and white posters. To keep the project authentic, I made homemade glue known as wheatpaste and sealed the posters to a tarp for mobility.

The Final Steps

I originally wanted to break the opinions up and display them in different areas around Portland. But due to legal issues, I decided it would be easier to stitch the tarp together so all the answers could be displayed side by side. The final location of the project was near the Lloyd Center in Portland, Oregon. This area was chosen because it was the main Max stop where the survey first took place. The location also had an easy access fence where the banner was strung up. It was directly facing the commuters on the train and easily seen by pedestrians in the area.
