good stuff is happenin' all the time

Thanks for checking in on all that's happening here, I get pretty excited to post in this section because it means the creativity is flowin'.

Key City Public Theatre, Port Townsend's high quality "Big Stories / Big Theatre" community theatre company has chosen workin' man creative to create all 2015 season printed and digital media. 

Thank you to Marc Weinblatt & Zhaleh Almaee Weinblatt for chosing workin' man creative as the service provider for the esteemed Mandala Center for Change's new website!

Less actually can be more. Port Ludlow Dentistry along with Francine Rose came to workin' man creative when they needed a simple, easy to update and low cost website design.

The family of Robert Feasley, a well-known northwest painter, was referred to me by Keven Elliff to create a database of their father's artwork.

I'm very proud to say that along with the excellent College Advancement team at Peninsula College, the 2013-14 academic year's Course Catalog won a silver National Council for Marketing & Public Relations Pragon Award for "Electronic Catalog and Class Schedule".

I've been commissioned to work on the graphic design & production by the City of Port Townsend for the PR related to their upcoming drinking water treatment facility capital project.

Recently at the College we introduced a new sub-site within the Drupal build the helps the Foundation standout and provide pertinent information for helping the college raise funds, and thus help students and faculty succeed.

So happy to work with the great people, especially Francine Rose, at Port Townsend's storied Rat Island Rowing & Sculling club.

Another project where I worked with Keven Elliff to create a simple and cool portfolio site for renowned blacksmith and metal artist Steve Lopes.

Recently the Port Townsend HVAC/R database software company XREF Publishing Co. asked me to improve their really outdated site design.

This was a great site to get to work on because owner Todd Stephens is a top notch artist in his craft, and it's always nice to do work for people who love what they do.

A simple and cost effective website option for artists. This is a Tumblr. page created for Lilly Gulden of Flashdance Fabrication, a custom welding & metal artist in Port Townsend, WA.

Thanks Keven Elliff & Puget Sound Express for the opportunity design my first billboard! Check it out on Highway 20, coming into Port Townsend around Four Corners.

In what turned out as more of a partnership than a client/service provider relationship, I got the opportunity to design a new logo, business cards, communication materials, signage and more for the premier concrete contractor in Port Townsend, WA.

Another fun to design publication for Peninsula College with a 50k mailing list!

I was lucky enough to work with Thos. Baker to create a Google Display Advertising design language recently.

The title says it all! I was fortunate to get to work with Gary Ingbretson to update the identity and business communication tools for his manufacturers representative company based out of Port Townsend, WA.

Happy to have worked with Wild Goose Tea to help with the launch of a new e-commerce store by creating product labels for super good tea and green tea infused beauty products.

Very happy to have gotten that chance to get to know Will & Heidi, owners of my favorite Port Townsend cafe while designing this simple, mobile friendly Wordpress website.

Thankful for the opportunity to design an updated donor envelope for a great organization like the Jefferson County Community Foundation. Look for this in a PT Leader newspaper this fall!

By now you should have recieve one of the 18k UGN mailers sent out to Jefferson County residents! We hope the new design and added information will make you want to donate to the super worthy cause directed by people who genuinly care.

Check out my article in the recent Jefferson County Chamber of Commerce's newsletter, which goes out with every PT Leader paper:

The largest job WMC has designed to-date. The new website for Peninsula College is live after an intense 6 months of architecting, designing and developing. Without local Drupal developer Pat Teglia at 33rd Prime this project would never had been possible.

It was a mad dash but we designed and developed this Drupal website inside of a month!

How cool is it to walk around for a week and see the work of your your business (WMC) in every store on the front page of the local PT Leader!

One of the coolest projects WMC has been awarded was the logo/identity for POURHOUSE, a new Port Townsend craft beer taproom and bottlehsop.

We did it! A grueling process to start with as the person doing the design and production for 20 years left PC and handed everything over to WMC. I'm excited to get to be the "go to" publication designer at Peninsula College.

WMC Completed the newly designed Pirates Basketball program for Peninsula College. Thanks to PC for being such an amazing client to have!

Along with Keven Elliff (marketing), Morgan Kay from Alchemy CS (theme development), and the Swan's marketing team – WMC designed a new website for The Swan Hotel of Port Townsend, WA.

Workin' man creative was asked to create a new website and business card design for Port Townsend General Contractor Bell Homebuilding.

A project sure to grow into something great! WMC worked with the Jefferson County Chamber of Commerce and Keven Elliff to create a tourism website in the hopes of planting the seed for great things to come.

This spring we worked with Poulsbo, WA based brick-and-mortar & online store Peninsula Outfitters to re-brand their existing Zen Cart website.

WMC is excited to announce the launch of the new North Olympic Salmon Coalition (Port Hadlock, WA) web design!

Port Townsend's Peninsula Sportsman awarded WMC their web design project earlier this spring and we're happy to say it's launched and working awesome.

This has been a very busy first half of the year for WMC, Author & Speaker Don Mordasini's new website is just one of many new websites we've launched.

In a mad rush, workin' man creative designed and developed the new Swan School website in 3 weeks.

We're a bit late in announcing this, but none the less – checkout the new Chimacum Corner Farmstand website!

WMC has launched a highly customized WordPress website for Barbara Stanny, best selling author and the leading authority on Women & Money.

Working for All Ports Media Group and Kenmore Air, WMC has completed the design and production of the winter issue of our flagship print project; HARBORS, The Kenmore Air Destination Magazine – a 64 page full color magazine.

I got the chance to not only update the design and convert the site to a WordPress based CMS, but to re-design the information architecture and content flow – which was very satisfying!

WMC has had the pleasure of working with Winds Eye Design and proprietors of Elevated, Julie & David McCulloch, on their new venture into the world of the web circa 2010.

Wow – we did it! This was a project directed by an intelligent artistic author and we put more work into it than knew possible. The outcome is a highly customized, very "alive" website for renowned author Jeff Brown.

Thanks to the best clients WMC could possibly have, the new Bainbridge Island Athletic Club website was launched yesterday without a hitch.

The Jefferson County Chamber of Commerce talks WMC up about our official full-time status.

Taken from the newsletter:

"Jefferson Chamber of Commerce redesigns its website", workin' man creative is always a happy camper when our work gets mentioned in the press!

Currently WMC's favorite project is the latest WordPress social media blog based gimme everything you got website for the Jefferson County Chamber of Commerce.

Thanks to Keven Elliff at Windridge Solutions for working with WMC to create a blog based, fully capable social media website for Puget Sound Express, one of the main Port Townsend tourist attractions.

One of Port Townsend's long time tourist landmarks worked with WMC to re-design and update their printed brochure – a piece widely seen across western Washington.

WMC has been busy. While it's very true that I hope Port Townsend's economy grows more from industry than tourism, I've been fortunate to work in the currently leading sector of economic development this last year.
