Two Cases of Unmistakable Identity


I've been spending a lot of time in web-world these days, with some new and exciting projects to report. But, before I go into them, here are some items I've been working on lately:

Northwoods Coaching Logo

Northwoods Coaching incorporates mindfulness, meditation, and other Eastern practices into its life coaching services. The owner, Frank Gladu, is a real pleasure to work with, and I would recommend him to anyone. He has a quiet cool and a broad, beaming smile, and I imagine his clients will benefit greatly from his advice. Northwoods Coaching is only one among many ventures for him, and I'm currently working on another logo and some visual aids for him.

Wentworth Motorsports Business Card

I've worked with Wentworth Motorsports for several years now - in fact, since 1979!

Full disclosure, the owner is my brother, Alex, who created his business out of a garage once he graduated, and I'm perpetually amazed by his technical and business skills. He's the kind of guy who used to dissect radios and put them back together at 8 years old. Stellar. And I owe him big time for all the help he's given me on repairing my beat-up autos over the years. His shop is constantly busy, and the crazy thing is, he's never advertised. His entire business is built on word-of-mouth, which is a real testament to the quality of his work.

Aside from being family, I really believe in the work he does. As far as combustion-engine autos go, he is pretty sustainable. Many of his parts are refurbished or salvaged from other cars, and instead of continuing the throw-away trend of buying a new car when the old one wears out, he does his best to resurrect even the most crippled cars and keep them from heading to the scrap heap. He treats his customers with the utmost respect, and bends over backwards to make sure they're happy with the work. Socially-conscious as well.


So, that's some of the print work I've had lately. As far as web work goes, I have two great projects right now. One is a website for a sustainable furniture craftsman, and the other is a redesigned website for Aryaloka Buddhist Center. And, I continue to assist freebuddhistaudio.com with their work online. More on all this at a later point! Be well!
