Graphics enhance the image of you, your company, and your website.  We can craft your own unique design, either based on your ideas or set us loose to create one for you!  Either way, you'll be setting yourself apart from the crowd.  
  Sometimes making a logo turns into a research project.  Such was the case with the logo for, a historical interest site.  The site's name was taken from a reference to a room aboard the ill-fated (and later Hollywood blockbuster) Titanic.  Our first idea for a logo was to combine the following elements: the oval shape of a stateroom number plate, the background coloring of the Titanic's owner flag, and an art-nouveau font.  You can see the results above.  While this made for a great small logo, we wanted something much larger and more expansive for the top of the website.

That's when we hit the history books.  Not really sure what we would find, we wanted to see if there was any source material available on the Cafe Parisien itself.  What we found was an old black-and-white photo taken of the Cafe before the ship sailed.  A-ha!  This had possibilities.

Move your mouse over the pic to see the color version we created!
The first thing we wanted to do was bring some life to the photo by use of color.  This involved researching the few available descriptions of the actual room, as color photos do not exist, and "painting" over the photo bit-by-bit until we came as close as possible.
Next we took the completed color photo and applied the same oval "stateroom number" frame, resulting in an oval photo with a gold border.
Here we have the "house flag" of the owner of the Titanic, the White Star Line.  This element will also find its way into the finished banner.
The remaining element to be added into the mix is the name of the site itself.  Here you see a font very reminiscent of Paris of old -- no Arial or Times-New Roman to be found here!
And here is the finished banner!  Taking all of the separate elements, arranged on a lightened "gold leaf" backdrop, with an inset box frame and subtle shadow effects adding an illusion of depth on an otherwise flat computer screen.
