Beautiful Video for Turner Boatworks

By | video | No Comments

We spent two days off the coast of Palacios, Texas, to art direct and produce this beautiful video for our client, Turner Boatworks, which makes high-end, customized fishing boats for very happy and discerning fishermen. This was two long, hot days on the water, but it was a lot of fun. And we learned a lot about what makes these boats special. John Turner, the designer, spent most of his career running a redfish farm on the Gulf Coast. He also has been a professional fishing guide for several decades. After Johen sold the redfish farm, he decided that nobody made a fishing boat exactly as he wanted it, so he started designing his own, and ended up turning it into a business. Woody Creative also designed the Turner Boatworks website.

New ad for Austin Beer Guide

By | print design | No Comments

Growler USA, the popular brew pub in Central Austin, near the UT campus, offers 100 freakin’ beers on tap. They are beer experts … beer nerds, really. No, they don’t make beer, but they know stuff about beer and they are all about educating patrons about beer, helping them find what they like, learning about the process of making beer, etc. They asked us to help design an ad for the Austin Beer Guide. We said, “OK.” Looking at this again, we find ourselves thirsty for … beer.

New logo for Deer Lease Moving

Deer Lease Moving logo project: Can you guess which one the client selected?

We have been working on a logo project for a new company called Deer Lease Moving (soon to be DeerLeaseMoving.com). It’s always interesting to see the iterations we come up with and to try to guess which one the client will like or not like. Here are three of the logos we presented to the client. Which logo do you think was selected by the client?

Drumroll …

The client chose the simplest logo (the first one), which is the circular logo with black, gray and green. Around the office we were convinced they would select the mostly green circular logo, which actually was our favorite.

Some new print stuff

Here are a couple of new print designs we developed recently for two different clients.

Retractable vinyl banner for Waterfall On Lake Travis

The first is a retractable vinyl banner, 32×80, that we designed for our client Waterfall On Lake Travis, a 36-unit luxury mid-rise condo on 950 feet of Lake Travis shoreline, slated for completion summer of 2016 (we also designed the website, waterfallonlaketravis.com). The client, Gene Arant Realty, wanted something biggish and splashy that they could take to locations and set up to make a statement in a room. The retractable banners stand more than six feet tall and the color and image reproduction is pretty nice.

Postcard for Chase Flooring

A quick postcard we designed to attract builders to the Chase Flooring Design Center. This one is a luxuriously large postcard size at 6×9 inches. Printed front and back the print costs are surprisingly low per piece, even on small print runs.
