Winter in KILMERHANSENland

posted on: Monday, January 30, 2012

Hi all! In what is usually a slower time of year with the holidays and tax time approaching, KILMERHANSEN has been pleasantly busy. With three web projects already in various stages of our design process and a fourth project’s work agreement just in the door, 2012 is already starting as our best year yet. 2011 and now 2012 are showing us a more diverse set of businesses as well. Our web design clients range from photographers, foundations, and health associations to financial advisers and lawyers.

2011 also gained us three website maintenance projects, welcome tasks to fill the hours between major design work. We are excited to continue to offer this service to individuals and businesses who need small changes made but don’t have the time or knowledge to complete them.

Thank you to our past clients who continue to spread the word about our services!

for hiring us to build or improve their online presence. We look forward to their continued success. To view larger screenshots of these websites, read about the companies, and view more of our website design work please visit our web gallery.

Grays Harbor Roller Derby Logo

posted on: Thursday, June 2, 2011

Grays Harbor Roller Derby has been newly founded and approached KILMERHANSEN about a logo to represent themselves. Based in a logging town, the woman wanted elements that reflected tools of the trade like axes and saw blades. They also needed to identify themselves as derby girls with either rollerskates or helmets. Through several revisions (one included a Lumber Jill!) the Grays Harbor Roller Derby logo was born. Sweet but tough, they are sure to make their mark (and maybe leave some marks!) in the derby world. Good luck ladies!!!

Bella Vista Photography Logo

posted on: Monday, March 28, 2011

Bella Vista Photography specializes in real estate, architectural, and design-related photography. A line art, brush stroke combination of a camera and a home was created to show exactly what this company provides. A logo that can stand alone without text if needed and still capture the essence of the company.

Cool Green Cabin Logo

posted on: Monday, March 28, 2011

Cool Green Cabin is a Seattle-based design company focusing on architecture and consulting. We were hired to design a logo and business card for the owner. He runs his office out of a small green and yellow caboose, the inspiration for the logo.

Shift Massage Logo

posted on: Monday, March 28, 2011

Sometimes a dramatic and fun design change is on order! This was the case for Shift Massage, a craniosacral and massage therapy company run by Kathy J. Rose. Her motto “Where Head Meets Heart” got a literal translation with the design of her new logo.

Japanese “kawaii-style” characters represent her fun and happy nature and break away from the traditional look of businesses in the massage industry. Shift Massage is truly a welcoming and relaxing massage location in South Lake Union.

The logo has already found a new home on redesigned business cards. Up next? A new website!

Waggin Tails Pet Care

posted on: Sunday, October 18, 2009

Waggin Tails is a local dog walking and boarding company owned by Jacki Phoenix. Jacki was looking for an online presence that showcased her company as fun and safe for dogs. This project was great as it allowed us to play with bright colors and playful design elements like dog paw prints and bones.

Although the Waggin Tails site design is now completed, Jacki takes advantage of our monthly maintenance offering to make sure the site is up-to-date and always changing.
