Building upon the success of Collegewise, founder Kevin McMullin continues to develop resources to high school students searching for and applying to colleges nationwide. This resource is the largest to date, a 271 page book, available via print-on-demand and ePub. We designed a book cover and layout for the book, then created an alternative layout for the ePub version of the book. We also created a landing page for the book, complete with descriptions, and purchasing options from 4 online stores.

Developing an App for GAPs Anonymous was an awesome experience that stretched our collective talents at ASTER. The concept was simple: A user “likes” the page, fills out the form and submits a photo of their car’s gap, then invites their friends to support them by voting for their photo. GAPs was moving into a second year (first year being VERY successful), and the expectation was to engage the more than 250k Eibach Springs fans to become GAPs members.
To make the app successful, we brought in a one page approach so the user could see the entry steps, videos, prizes, effect of the product on their car to eliminate their gap, and (most importantly) see all the other member entries. The app also needed to be accessible on a mobile phone, so a user could simply snap a photo of their car and complete their entry from the driveway or parking lot. The campaign is a huge success so far, increasing the Eibach Springs fan base by more than 5% so far. Go support a member by voting.
A vocational college with a focus on the medical field, CNI College has created a brand to serve potential students in Orange County. CNI approached us to create a new website, mobile site an online student resource center. We also designed a new logo to give the college a completely modern look.
A new restaurant in a revitalized downtown Santa Ana, Chapter One needed a website that would show the vibrance of the restaurant, while also being able to manage the ever changing menu and boutique bar. Making the website accesible via mobile was key for the highly exposed window front, and brought possibilities for craft beer aficionados and crafted cocktail lovers to connect to a fresh menu via QR codes.
Kindle Street website was a chance to design an online editing app interface for designers who want to create their own shirt graphics online. Working with David and Ryan from Setwise on this “sky is the limit” project was challenging, but fun to see it come together. Check out their site, and start your own store to sell some swag.
Building a new modern image to present an already successful brand, CNI college was looking to gently refresh their logo to fit an updated website.
An industry leading printer and fulfillment company in Orange County, THE DOT needed to communicate to their clients that they have a broad spectrum of complimentary services in facilities within 10 miles from one another. Their successful brand has been carried by exceptional customer service, quality product and on time delivery. Our job was to accent what they were already doing through a logo and website that visually communicate the brand.
The icon driven site was designed to bring focus on each division independently, bringing awareness to the services one at a time. With a mobile specific site that works beautifully on the iPhone, the sales team was fully prepared to showcase the full suite of services complete with samples of work.
This highly personal brand hinges on the stories of the characters Joe and Joy. Each have their own personal approaches to the complexity of coffee consumption, but in the end they agree to disagree, and build a deeper understanding of how coffee transcends time into the “coffee moment”.
Building a website that would convey this story AND sell coffee is something we were excited about. Through these characters we were able to suggest taste and style, and allow the user to start sorting through coffee not just by roast profile of Light or Dark, but also through the preference of Joe and Joy. Interaction with Joy became tangible through her Pinterest account, while Joe was to correspond through Twitter. With these social media outlets, they journaled their adventures in life, love and coffee.
Building a brand that stands out in the specialty coffee industry is a challenging task. Trends are fast, but a building a brand that carries through with more than a logo and graphics is where the challenge begins. Enter Joe meets Joy, the 100% online retailer with the tough task of convincing America to brew at home, then to go out and find their “coffee moment”.
With simple stamp-like graphics of black, the logo represents the intersection of where Joe and Joy meet and experience the ultimate coffee separately, and then together. Building a narrative on the two extremes of the specialty coffee industry, Joe represents the tech while Joy represents the taste. Through lifestyle photography of each character in their coffee moment, the consumer feels a romance brewing through their stories, anticipating the coffee moment they share together.
