We set out to create a visually appealing and stylistic website while keeping true to their circular facade motif and current logotype. The site was developed in Flash to add fun animation elements and create an immersive experience, we made sure to also included an alternate HTML site for SEO and mobile devices, as well as create a custom CMS for both to make updating a snap.

First started as a pro-bono project, All-City Computers Manhattan Beach wanted a completely new logo and brand. A simple logo was chosen to offset the complexity some people experience in dealing with computers. This logo was used as the inspiration for the website, Gillespie Design’s first foray into a Flash website. The site was built to be compact, simple and have engaging animation elements. We made sure to develop an alternate HTML site for mobile and SEO purposes, as well as initial Search Engine Marketing (SEM) services. Attractive letterhead, envelopes, business cards and brochure were also designed to round out their brand.

Working with Cause Farm Creative, Gillespie Design helped design a logo, Sponsorship Opportunities Booklet, letterhead and designed HTML email. A simple yet rich design was achieved with clean typefaces and vignetted stock photography. The HTML email was coded and developed for maximum consistency on all email platforms, and included intelligent tag attributes leveraging user’s calendar and phone apps.

Merging the past and present, this new home community was built in the Anaheim CA, Colony Historic District. Colony Park was designed as the larger parent enclave, which included 2 separate communities within, Legacy and Harmony (one of which is shown here). A timeline was utilized to show how far the colony has come, referencing things like when citrus groves flourished and when Disneyland was first created. From concept to execution to completion, this project was design every step of the way by Gillespie Design.
