About the company

Acue-Tex Inc is located in Hubbard Oregon. They have thirteen machines on the floor specializing in injection molding, insert molding, and tool & die manufacturing. The company is known for building parts for the medical, dental, and veterinary industries.

Working with Nathan was great. He knew exactly want he wanted and all our meetings were straight to the point. Our mission was to build an eye catchy logo, business cards, and a company website.

Creating The Brand

Acue-Tex has been established for many years but their brand was almost non-existent. They tried out many fonts and had a drawing of a plastic injection molding machine. They just needed professional help building the vision. We almost knocked it out of the park after presenting the first draft of ideas. One concept was a line logo based on a plastic injection molding machine. This design was more realistic and was in line with the current company sketch. Since Acue-Tex builds a lot of medical equipment we thought it would be a nice touch to make one of the parts in the machine resemble a medical cross icon.

Our other direction was more abstract and it focused on the viewing window inside the plastic molding machine. The icon uses a neutral color palette and the gold shape represents plastic that is about to be molded. An innovative logo needs a timeless typography so we went with Futura. It was a hard decision but this design was chosen to represent Acue-Tex. The next step was to build matching business cards.

Responsive One-Page Website

When searching for Acue-Tex in 2019 on Google many industrial sites tied to this client pop up. But none of them were informative. This is because the client didn’t have a real website. We developed a WordPress one-page scroll site that tells readers who this client is and the industries they work with. This site is mobile responsive meaning it shrinks to fit phone and tablet displays.

What is Versoft?

Versoft Consulting is an investment management company that aids clients with the efficiency of their portfolio management and CRM software. They assist their clients with consultation and by updating software and optimizing software workflows and reporting.

They build long-term relationships with their clients and with this, empower them with knowledge, skills, and tools to streamline their business.

They came to us as a start-up, needing everything from branding and print materials to a website, with a need to stand out from the competition.

Branding

Creating the Versoft Consulting logo was surprisingly a smooth process. The client wanted a 3D brand that was just as interesting as the Advent software logo. Our design team started out with several wireframe concepts. After a few days of sketching the brand was recreated in CAD software. The uppercase “V” is modeled off the Helvetica typeface. It was heavily contorted to fit inside a spiral cylinder. We decided to use an Ocean blue in the brand because it symbolizes trust, loyalty, confidence, truth and intelligence. These are all traits the Versoft team uses in their everyday practices.

The brand has been 3D printed and the same V icon can be seen from both sides. In April 2019 we made a legibility change to the brand. We opened up the top of the logo slightly so the uppercase “V” is more visible. Overall this created a better looking emblem.

Web Design

The website has been through a lot of changes in the last couple years. In 2019 the site was information focused and used bold colors to offset short but dense text, highlighting their consulting services and training. In 2021 the site switched to a dark theme using nature backgrounds. This design choice is easier on the eyes and the photos provide a calming environment for clients. We also added a new section called VaaS. (Versoft as a Service) This section is a micro site found off the main menu with its own branding.

Logo Design

Melanie approached Graphicsbyte with a dream: quality, affordability, and accessibility in the eyelash industry. This is something she couldn’t find herself. Working in her Lake Oswego, OR salon, her passion and talent for eyelash extensions evolved into a love for education and training in the industry. She created a new company to focus on these endeavors. Volume is an eyelash extension supply company with a focus on education for licensed professionals, providing great products at reasonable prices.

What Volume needed was a voice. Melanie’s vision was high fashion and clean. With her ideas in mind we developed a golden geometric uppercase V monogram which could be used for embossing or printing in foil.

E-Commeerce

Volume is both an eyelash extension supplier and education platform. The website was designed to highlight both sides of the business. We worked with Velare Media and helped develop an e-Commerce site where lashes are easily sorted into shape, length and style. When training is available, licensed professionals sign up for classes straight from the site.

About The Brand

The future of inspections is through drone flight using infrared and HD cameras. Everdrone creates and executes streamlined workflows for image and data gathering for in-depth analysis of heavy equipment. Integrated with cloud-based software, they produce 3D maps, compare current data with projected data, and acquire educated insights.

While working with Velare Media the client approached us in need of a full brand identity and website to market their startup inspection business. We worked closely with their team to craft a voice to the ideas behind Everdrone and create a comprehensive website showcasing their workflows and analysis abilities. They needed a company logo, website, and marketing materials that can be handed out in trade shows.​

Branding with "Military" In Mind

Everdrone is a cutting-edge aerial company that uses drones to inspect heavy machinery. When the company first approached us they wanted their brand to look timeless and “military.” But overall they were very open-minded. We used the DJI website to find high-quality images of the Zenmuse X series cameras. These are the same cameras onboard the client’s aircraft.

We designed a hexagon line logo that is loosely based on the Zenmuse X45 camera. It was important to give this logo some personality so the we made the focal point of the lense resemble an eye that looks directly at the camera. The diagonal wings were then added to be a reference towards the Airforce brand.

Iconography

After building the brands visual identity we pushed the hierarchy father with a series of custom icons. Each icon represents a service that Everdrone specializes in. The icons are used on the company website, business cards and promotional materials.

4K image capture and video are key components of drone inspections. The website showcases these areas in great detail. We worked with Velare Media and helped capture some of the videos and images for the site.

Print Media

To help spread the word Everdrone participates in trade shows and drone conferences around the country. They wanted promotional materials that could be given away. Stickers were the first thing we created and these are currently being used on the company UAV’s, hard hats and other equipment. We also created several t-shirt designs, and 3D printed keychains.

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.

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.

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.

Conrad Lumber Company is a retail lumberyard that specializes in decking and fencing material. They are the only factory direct supplier of treated wood products in the Portland area. They provide building materials for both homeowners and contractors alike. The parent company, Conrad FP owns multiple plants, sawmills, and Conrad Lumber Company is their Northwest Sales location.

While working with Velare Media Conrad approached us with a want to have their own identity and differentiate themselves from their competition in the Portland area. We sat with them to come up with a game strategy, which included a large, info-driven website using their own branding (which is different from the branding of their parent company) as well as strategies for targeting their local markets.

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.

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.

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.
