Two new design projects recently launched – a website for Philadelphia Illustrator Jon Krause and a website for Philadelphia Baroque Orchestra Tempesta di Mare. Jon Krause is a fellow Tyler School of Art alum and his works have been featured in Reader’s Digest, The Atlantic, Time, Wall Street Journal, and The New York Times – just to name a few! More importantly, he has a very cool beagle named Pickle!

Jon was looking to update his portfolio site and I have to say, it wasn’t too difficult to create a backdrop for his stunning, colorful images. Jon’s new website was customized using WordPress, including the fancy sliding “tear sheet” of his website featuring covers and spreads.

Coinciding with the launch of his newly designed portfolio site is the launch of his online shop in which customers can purchase high-quality archival prints of his beautiful illustrations. Jon has teamed up with independent print studio and fellow BBD client Fiber Ink Studio to create the prints of his work. Jon’s online shop was set up through Big Cartel and customized to create a seamless experience between his portfolio site and the shopping area. To celebrate the launch of both the new site and online shop, Jon is offering prints 50% off, so hurry up and purchase some beautiful prints today!

Another new year project is the new website for Philadelphia Baroque Orchestra Tempesta di Mare.  Part of the reason I love doing what I do is getting to work with such a wide range of people and organization and discovering new artists and groups in the wonderfully arts-oriented city that I call home! Tempesta di Mare plays baroque music (of course), performing internationally and debuting many amazing programs right here in the Philadelphia area.

The new website for Tempesta di Mare had to be sleek and sophisticated but also hint a bit at their bold style. I love that while working on the design, they requested MORE color! Sometimes I feel that my palette can get overwhelming, so I try to restrain myself. How fun to work with people not afraid of color!

My favorite part of the new site to design/program was the color-coded calendar pages. This color-coding carries over from Tempesta di Mare’s previous website and print materials. They have a range of different performance types as well, so organizing all of this in something comprehensible and easy-to-update was a fun challenge for me. But keep in mind, I’m a big dork. Hopefully these two projects are signs of good things and exciting work to come in 2011!
