Over a year ago, a board member of Freedom Barks, Inc. approached me to redo their current website. The non-profit is in charge of maintaining a dog park in Medford, New Jersey. The park is inside a much larger area called Freedom Park. The dog section is called Freedom Barks. Get it?
I love seeing my designs go into the hands of people who will fill them up with the things that make them unique. A project handoff is a moment of minds melding, and, if you'll pardon my nerdiness, it makes me super happy.
Color is my favorite design tool, and I always connect with designers who seem to enjoy using it too. I also love how Lisher makes great use of grids without every design feeling the same or boxy. His gorgeous illustration work gives interesting shape to his work without sacrificing the utility of a more traditional layout.
Typically, I allow for one round of revisions with my low-budget clients. But here, because I'm effectively designing for two different people who aren't talking to each other about thep roject, we had to approach things a little differently.
