Logo and Website Design

First and foremost, I'm a software engineer and although I can make a sensible UI that follows the main presentation patterns, my abilities fall way short of producing a polished and professional look. There are many companies that provide logo and website services, including those affiliated with some of the other services I've already used: LegalZoom, GoDaddy.

I'm fortunate to have a few graphics designers as friends. I was fortunate to get my buddy Jay Jimenea to carve out time from his family and kids to create a logo for the company and give me a hand with the website. He was quickly able to translate my vision to a really cool logo. Jay has yet to work on the website but I can't wait to see what he comes up with!

You can see the evolution of the website for yourself:

  • Stage 1: Initial website by a software engineer; heck ya, check out that AJAX!
  • Stage 2: Logo, color and fonts by a graphics designer applied
  • Stage 3: Website massaged with the magic wand of a graphics designer (in progress)
