Over 100 years ago, riders came from around the country to race one of Rock Hill’s three velodromes. Thousands of fans would circle the track to enjoy the spectacle of speed. With the advent of the automobile, bicycle riding and racing declined and Rock Hill’s velodromes disappeared.
A century later we’ve gone back to the future as we partner with Ride Rock Hill to celebrate the opening of a new velodrome along with the vibrancy of cycling in it’s many forms. With a website around the corner, we are racing to bring news of these amazing venues to the world. In the meantime, check out photos from this weekend’s Grand Opening.
After months of cross-country collaboration, we are excited to officially launch a veritable treasure trove of work for a delightful new client, Swash & Buckler.
The young start-up launched itself into 2012 with a spiffy new identity featuring a set of custom icons and gorgeously letterpressed stationery (shout out to our friends at Copper Dog Press!) The tagline “Adventure is Waiting” stakes a claim in the world of learning and entertainment while allowing them room to explore new markets.
Finally, we brought Swash & Buckler online with a whimsical video introducing their app to health care providers. Built with mobile devices and tablets in mind, the site is adaptive and scales seamlessly. Complete with floating clouds and undulating waves, the nautical theme was carried throughout their site.
This past Saturday we wrapped our latest video project for a bright and shiny new client, Swash & Buckler. Based on the West Coast, we’ve been loving every cross-country minute of working together. Kisa, the owner and visionary behind the progressive new start-up, possesses an uncanny blend of bubbly and brilliant.
Big thanks to the Williams family for allowing us to shoot in the beautifully restored, historic Cotton Factory. And a very special thanks to the Sharp family, local dentists extraordinaire, for bringing their natural talents to the set.
Scheduled to launch with a new identity and website before the holidays, the video will be a whimsical introduction to an app for health care providers. As we say at Swash & Buckler, adventure is waiting!
‘Tis the season for all things magical and our latest collaboration with Paul Frank (yes, that Paul Frank) and his savvy sidekick, Susan, has been nothing short of dreamy!
Without exception, Paul and Susan are the sweetest, most gracious clients we’ve worked with to date. Our ideas were always embraced — such as the subtle stitched element that runs through the site or our request for a hand-sewn “Paul” to adorn the “about” page. The veritable grab bag of imagery that was at our disposal, from lovely vector textures to adorable characters, helped us co-create a site showcasing Paul’s whimsical, handcrafted artwork & accessories.
In addition to keeping the design minimal, we labored to create an adaptive site that functions seamlessly on mobile devices and iPads. We also shared DIY video tutorials with the dynamic duo, making it easy for them to update all aspects of the site going forward.
If collecting amazing art and supporting deserving artists is on your wish list this holiday season then head on over and get you some parklafun.com!
We’re super proud to finally show off months of hard work for Revolution Clothing located at the Epicenter in Uptown Charlotte.
