Getting Started

Cabinet Cures is a cabinet refacing and refinishing company. They have four locations around the United States. They are known for their custom stains and tinted liquors, with over 35 different options to choose from. Each stain is hand applied so it will never hide the natural beauty of the wood grain.

During 2014–2020 we worked with Velare Media and helped develop all the company websites, graphics, photography and various print projects. Everything below is displayed in chronological order from when it was created.

Updating The Brand

In 2019 the owners of Cabinet Cures wanted to overhaul their brand. The old brand used a red tone with an arch over the cc initials. The client wanted to keep the same typography but update the cabinet door to something they actually sell.

We photographed raw cabinet door samples and scanned their wood grain patterns. The chosen door style is called Sussex. It’s a cherry cabinet door with a Harvest stain. The logo update became optional. Currently only two franchises and the new catalog use the updated brand.

2017 – Current

WordPress Web Design

The first Cabinet Cures website was developed in WordPress. The site was then ported into Hubspot. In 2017 the company put in a request to be moved back to WordPress. All the franchises received a website overhaul. New photos, text and graphics were applied. This made each site more personable to their local audience. All the websites are still using this model.

Cabinet Photography

The best way to sell a kitchen online is though high quality photography. We took several trips to the Cabinet Cures showroom and captured the wood from different angles. These photos were then applied to the Portland and Inc websites. They were also used in different social media posts. We also took photos of all the cabinet doors to show the wood grains before stains and lacquers are added.

The Catalog

Shortly after updating the brand we received another request to overhaul the company catalog. Our goal was to build a design that complemented the websites. The last catalog was used for almost a decade before receiving an update. Our design needed to be timeless!

The catalog talks about all the products Cabinet Cures has to offer. It also has client testimonials and additional info about the company. The book has 20 pages designed around negative space.

Siempre La Guitarra Concert Series

Siempre La Guitarra

Music Festival Designs

Siempre La Guitarra is a classical guitar concert series featuring performers from around the world.

Music Festival Designs

Siempre La Guitarra is a classical guitar concert series featuring performers from around the world.

Origins of the event

Siempre La Guitarra,  meaning “Always the guitar” is a classical guitar concert series presented by David Tutmark and Oregon Guitar Studio. Each season will feature a series of concerts showcasing some of the finest guitarists of today.

David has been a friend of Graphicsbyte for many years. Over a business meeting we hashed out different ideas for the project. Unique illustration with a Pacific Northwest Lumberjack mascot was chosen to represent the brand. Our vision was to create a hip theme that would attract a younger audience to get interested in classical guitar.

Custom Typeface

The artwork for the concert poster is designed around negative space and round edges. To complement the design, we created a custom condensed sans-serif typeface. Currently, there are two weights being used in the campaign, regular and bold. The typeface was inspired by futuristic fonts from the 1920’s. The full alphabet has been made but it’s not available for the general public to use.

2018–19 Siempre La Guitrarra Tour Poster designed by Mark Sheldon Boehly - Graphcisbyte Creative

2018–19 Tour Poster

Late 2018 to early 2019 was when the event started. Our mission was to build a collectable poster we could sell at the merchandise table that represented the series. A lot of illustration work coming out of the Graphicsbyte studio during this time was geometric with lots of rounded corners. It only made since to introduce those practices into the poster. The poster size was 16 x 24 inches.

We created a fictional landscape with Mt. Hood as the focal point. The lumberjack was placed on a hill and was playing a tune while surrounded by nature. The concept was drawn on paper, scanned into Adobe Illustrator and textured in Adobe Photoshop. This was the first design the series had ever seen. It required maintenance. We swapped the dates and artist info at the bottom of each poster and printed a limited run to sell for each show.

2018–19 Alternative Poster

We created a secondary design that would complement the tour poster. This featured the same lumberjack pose but in a different composition. The design played with negative space and was also used in a small run of t-shirts. This was a popular choice at the event merchandise table.

2020 Siempre La Guitrarra Tour Poster designed by Mark Sheldon Boehly - Graphcisbyte Creative

2020 Tour Poster

A new tour poster was designed for the 2020 lineup. We kept the mountain theme from the previous year but introduced a new bearded character. The reason behind this is to expand on the lumberjack universe. The new design is masked into the shape of an eighth note. The design also features an Easter egg. The bird singing in the tree is using a real segment of music that David wrote.

We learned our lesson from the previous two years and this time added the entire lineup for the season on one poster. An icon system was introduced to help save space. This was because a lot of the performers were playing at the same locations on different dates. The key at the bottom of the poster corresponds to the icons and tells viewers where the event is held.

The design process of this new poster was created entirely in Adobe Illustrator. Due to Covid-19 the event was canceled and the 2020 poster only saw one show. This poster design may get recycled for a future date.

Individual Musician Posters

During mid 2019 we received a request to create additional posters that focused on the musician performing that night. This added another layer to the event and made each show more personable. Graphics were recycled from the illustrated series and the performers were photoshopped into the new designs.

The Merchandise Table

Mark and David have been friends for many years. One of the best perks from designing the graphics for the event was participating at the shows. Graphicsbyte was invited to run the merchandise table. Each show had two event posters available. One was the white alternative poster and the other was the tour poster. Guitar picks with event branding and stickers were also available. Eventually these two items were combined into guitar pick packs that included x3 picks and x1 sticker. The packaging told a backstory of why the lumberjack plays in the forest.

In 2020 a limited run of nail files was created. These were mostly gifts for the performers but the extras would be sold at the table. The files were made of glass and had a wood handle with the event branding burnt in. T-Shirts and Trucker hat designs were also available as online order exclusives. We wanted to encourage the audience to explore the Siempre La Guitarra website and shop online. The booth had several other goodies available. Graphicsbyte was allowed to sell their own merchandise.

The Website

The most rememberable websites have good branding and are easy to use. Luckily we already created eye-catching graphics for the posters. That language was carried into the website. The site currently uses the same color palette and illustrative imagery from the 2018­–19 posters. The site was designed in WordPress and allows fans to buy tickets, learn about their favorite performer, and walk away with some new merchandise. We also added a section where companies can sign up to be a sponsor.

Acue-Tex Inc brand and logo developed by Mark Sheldon Boehly - Graphicsbyte Creative

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.

The Metal Sculpture Experience

Have you ever wanted to visit an alien world full of metal? Truax Designs is an experience where people not only interact with sculpture but take a piece home.

The Metal Sculpture Experience

Have you ever wanted to visit an alien world full of metal? Truax Designs is an experience where people not only interact with sculpture but take a piece home.

The Backstory of two friends that built an alien world.

Several years before Graphicsbyte was formed Mark Boehly took a sculpture class at Clackamas Community College. In the class, he met a student named Christopher Truax. The two became good friends but eventually lost contact. In 2013 the two randomly reconnected at an art gallery in Portland. The show featured Christopher’s metal sculpture. He had articulated robots, tall animals inspired by Salvador Dali, a robotic DJ, and even a flying toaster. As a solo act, it was nice to see an old friend living the dream as a master sculptor.

The gallery event took place a few weeks after Mark graduated from Portland State University. This was a good time to look for new opportunities. He agreed to build Christopher a website and a logo. The payment was a trade for a custom piece of sculpture. Before the website and brand were finished Christopher shared a prototype where objects were infused in metal. The sculpture looked like it came straight out of a science fiction movie. Instantly Mark knew this was something worth exploring. Mark decided to join the team and learn how to build his own sculptures. He then agreed to market the new product know known as “Karbon Kast.” (The sign in the photo on the left uses this process.) Together Christopher and Mark formed a creative friendship and still continue to produce new works of art to this day.

The Logo

In Early 2014 Truax Designs reveled the Karbon Kast at the AFRU Gallery in Portland. It was an instant hit. Over 60 items sold on the opening night and a dozen more throughout the week. When the event was over Mark and Chris started to produce hundreds of sculptures. They were preparing for their next show at the Portland Expo called America’s Largest Christmas Bazaar.

This event was also a huge success. Karbon Kast attracted dozens of new fans and this was when we presented the company logo for the first time.

The brand was designed after a robotic angel named Lily. She is fully articulated and was built for stop-motion animation. Mark designed an enclosure logo that showcases the robots most iconic features. Red became the brands primary color because it matches Lily’s brother Apollo who is also an articulated robot in the series. The physical color of the two robots together are both light and dark. This formed a Yin & Yang in the color palette.

A condensed san serif typeface was created to fit in the enclosures negative space. Today that type has become the brand’s main focal point. Wings are a common element found in the brands metal sculptures. So it only made since to add graphic wings to print media such as business cards and flyers.

The Website

We first launched the Truax Designs website in 2014 at the Portland AFRU Gallery. This was during the first Karbon Kast art show. The site was mostly informative featuring Christopher’s portfolio. After a couple years of updates the website started to turn into a real brand. It now features an e-commerce shop where customers can buy sculptures online or put in a request for a custom order. The about section is no longer focused on a single individual. Truax Designs has always been a team project. This page talks about the three main artists who have developed the look and feel of the company. The site also keeps fans up to date with an active events page and video log.

As were now in the age of Covid-19. It was important to incorporate our Etsy page into the site. Etsy has been a good selling point for the Karbon Kast. This page has helped inform new and old fans about the other types of sculpture Truax Designs is capable of producing.

Karbon kast & Illustrated Hybrids

Creating the art is one of the best perks of working with Truax Designs. In 2017 we started to create 3D printed prototypes. These prints were infused in the metal and turned into success stories at events like Comic Con. We also created some mixed-media hybrids using Graphicsbyte art as the focal point. The Karbon Kast was then used as a secondary texture.

The Pop-Up Gallery

Towards the end of 2017 Truax Designs created a pop up gallery in Oregon City called Truax Gallery. Mark and Chris spent a year here selling metal sculptures to the general public. About three months into the project we needed another line of art. Graphicsbyte received an opportunity to sell prints and sticker packs. This added a splash of color to the gallery and attracted a different audience.

Even though the gallery was short lived the experience was everything the artists hoped for. The following year the gallery packed up and moved to West Linn. The new location had a storefront connected to the same building the Truax Designs workshop is in. This move was going to speed up production… Soon as we were getting ready to officially launch the second chapter of the gallery Coivid-19 came to Oregon. We were forced to cancel the project.

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.

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.

Website Design

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.

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.
