GLAMBeauty Bar

When it comes to putting GLAMBeauty Bar’s name on everything and anything, we are the team for it. We developed the exterior and interior signage for two locations, as well as their print collateral - everything from business and appointment cards, to rack cards, and temporary signage for pop up shops. Our team also managed the production and installation of these items. It doesn’t get much better with a creative time, to be honest.

Simple style can be difficult to master. Whole Assistant is a no nonsense brand that wants to optimize their client’s work life. To do so, they hired Markon to optimize their website. We took their primary goal - to get prospective clients to download a free guide - and reworked the style and layout of their website to make it easy for visitors to get all the right information and leave with the freebie. That’s content driven web design for you.

Classically Curated

We built a gorgeous commerce and blog site for our friend at Classically Curated. To make sure that visitors get to the right destination, categorical browsing is the central attribute of the site’s design. No matter where a visitor found themselves on site, no matter how they got to the site, we wanted them to be able to get to the right category of apparel, or blog topic, so that they can consume the content they came looking for. The site does all of that with a bit of Charleston, South Carolina charm.

GoKid App

Good user experience and user interface design will carry any company far, no matter their size, age, or mission. GoKid came to Markon with two issues: an inconsistent expression of their brand’s visual identity across their website; and a need to better guide their customers to the right content. We conducted a thorough site review and provided our analysis and explicit direction to redesign their website to ensure brand consistency and a sense of logic to their content and navigation.

Treat

Treat is known for bringing the sweet stuff to downtown Vancouver, Washington. Though their brand identity is strong, it wasn’t quite the right fit. Markon was commissioned to modernize their brand identity, by creating a single logo that could be used online and in print. We abandoned their previous script and icon and went for literal clean lines and san serif font. To give the new logo a first run in life, we designed a simple ice cream cup with the brand’s new color palette. The result literally looks edible.

Anderson Parking

Web design shouldn’t be overthought. The internet is crowded and some websites are way too clunky. Anderson Parking hired Markon to update their website and after getting to know them, we knew we needed to build something clean, modern, and streamlined - much like their business - to serve them well. The Atlanta-based valet service now has a website that is simple in its structure, but robust in its brand expression and content.

Kaiti Orf

Style can be enticing. Great content can be convincing. Kaiti Orf came to Markon with a dream to own her very own blog and from that dream we built a website that Kaiti could use to express herself in a clean, streamlined, and well-organized way. The site is an example of how organization and aesthetic simplicity can elevate actual content, which is what it’s all really about anyway. Now Indianapolis, Indiana can claim one more blogger with a great website to its cultural conversation.

The Cottages

As with anything, websites need a little bit of tender love and care. Sometimes they have to be rebuilt from the ground up. The Cottages came to Markon with a website built on an obsolete platform that they could no longer maintain. Using the general layout and content of the existing site, we built a fresh new site with an updated aesthetic to appeal to a modern audience. Embedding new features, such as in-page application forms, made the site functionally modern as well as stylish.

Columbia Commercial

Times change and so do companies. When Columbia Commercial changed some of its mission they decided it was also time for a brand refresh. Using the existing branding as a guide we made simple style changes to elements of their logo that make for a significant update. People should never forget the power of typography, color, and arrangement. There’s a lot you can intentionally, or inadvertently communicate when you combine the three. In this case, we signaled to the community that Columbia Commercial is still relevant, still making waves, and ready to innovate.

Salt MD

The founder of Salt MD wanted to take as many steps apart from the rest of the visual identity of her industry as possible. To do so, we took this high-tech medical esthetics brand in a direction so literal that we came back with some mildly abstract rifts on the literal name of the brand. The result is a brand identity, website, and business cards that have an elemental feel, while also communicating a sense of luxury, precision, and expertise.

Full Circle Dance

Function has to come with style. That’s the rule of this game. Full Circle Dance offers gender-neutral dance classes in the Denver, Colorado metro region. Markon was hired to mature the young dance studio’s logo, which was not quite complete, and to finish a website that had not yet reached its prime potential. Our team refined the existing logo concept, re-structured and re-styled the website, to create two products that can represent and work for both the studio and its audience.

Jenny Be Art

Entrepreneurs have to share two things: their craft and their passion for their craft. To help Jenny Be do just that we built a website that could be described as both airy and precise. We used ample white space to give the pops of dynamic color, which defines her art, room to expand and entice. The straightforward site layout makes it easy to navigate between blog and shop and back again. The result is a website that helps the Temecula, California based artist sell her most exquisite works.

CX Advisors

Responsive design (read: mobile-friendly) is an absolute must. It’s so fundamental we rarely talk about it because we take it for granted. Yet, creating a responsive design that can scale down from the screen of a 21” iMac to a standard iPhone isn’t always so simple. CX Advisors hired Markon to resolve image scaling issues on their website and to audit their content for both message and format. We delivered the client a script of custom code to resolve their scaling issue and then we provided a report with our recommendation for improving their site’s value as a brand and marketing asset.

Julia Otis

We love a good digital portfolio. Julia Otis came to us with a dream to build a gorgeous web portfolio. As a UX designer and business pro, she had great ideas, but no resources to implement along with all of her other life responsibilities. Markon was hired to take her dream and build the nearest representation of her ideas as possible. The resulting website is a marriage between her design guidance and our technical implementation.

Brewganic Coffee

An aspiring quick service food brand needs a website as enticing as the scent of its product. Especially when it’s coffee! This Auburn, Washington based coffee brand came to Markon to help launch a simple, concise website. We took Brewganic’s existing brand identity and built a website that’s meant to be a hearty sip of all the brand has to offer. Just a sip, though. You have to go out into the real world to have the whole experience.

Lord Interior Design

Content is king and the structure of your website is the thrown upon which is rests. Lake Oswego, Oregon based Lord Interior Design came to us to build a new portfolio website. They brought with them thousands of photos and hours worth of dialogue describing their identity, process, experiences, and services. We took the breadth of all of those things and built a website that has an editorial feel, so that visitors feel like they’re comfortably browsing a publication as they learn more about how Lord can help them live beautifully in their home.

Foode Cafe & Catering

A brand built on the principle of bringing all things fresh has to look fresh, too, right? Right. Foode Cafe & Catering had been bringing the meals to Vancouver, Washington for a hot minute before the founders came to Markon and asked us to give their visual identity a fresh squeeze. We took their request to use the color green and a single letter and then gave their logo a total redo. Our deliverable included a solid gray iteration of the logo as a tool they could use to stand out, too.
