Battle Born. Battle Ready.

We’re very pleased to announce the launch of the redesigned Battle Born Beer website! We built the old website many moons ago before things such as “responsive design” and quite frankly it was showing its age. Our friends at Saint Pierre Creative have been working to improve the brand’s image and they asked us to step in and develop the new website. We were more than happy to oblige!

Although it is just one page right now, we will be expanding it very soon with a custom “Beer Finder” app that will allow visitors to track down a Battle Born near them. It will also distinguish between retail locations and bars/restaurants.

We’re very happy to see this brand get “reborn” and wish them nothing but continued success!

Logo Projects

It always feels good to take a break from your normal routine and do something different every now and again. We’ve been fortunate enough to have couple of logo projects come our way in the last couple of months. When you spend countless days writing code and going over analytics numbers it can be really refreshing to put away the command line and open up Illustrator. We look forward to doing more of this and working with more great companies in the future.

First up was a little logo refresh for our friends at hangglidingtahoe.com.

Old logo


New logo


The second project was for a new client, Certified Pool and Spa. This was a ground up rebranding of an established business in the Reno-Sparks area for the new owner of the company. More on this one to come, but here is a preview of the final logo.

Getting Responsive with it!

Lisa came to us looking for a company that could fix some broken functionality on a new website she started with a friend. She had been taken to the cleaners by another developer who not only failed to fix the problems, but then would not tell her what he had done. We went in and repaired the site so it would function correctly. It was critical these components function flawlessly because the site relies on user submitted content in the form of pictures. Any pitfalls the user experienced during the submission process could turn them off of the site for good.

Once we had the site working flawlessly Lisa wanted to take it to the next level by adding some additional functionality in the form of a “Like” (in this case a heart) type function. She also wanted to make the site fully responsive so users to access, browse, and upload photos directly from their tablets and mobile devices. The existing layout of the site was to remain unchanged. We went to work on the theme and completely stripped it down before rebuilding it on the Twitter Bootstrap framework. It lended itself perfectly to the grid style layout. With the addition of small screen specific dropdown navigation items the experience is very fluid.

We invite everyone to check it out at theaccidentalheart.com. We know you’ll be seeing hearts!
