It was time for a new website for C.Kay International, and we were more than happy to take it on.
Our Work \\
Queer Geek! is a Seattle-based organization focused on networking and connecting LGBTQ folks interested in geek activities such as gaming, SF/fantasy, comics and anime.
Raygun Lounge, a self-proclaimed trashy chic gaming lounge and retail outlet in Seattle’s bustling Capitol Hill neighborhood was looking to refresh their image with an update to their branding and logo. The updated logo features a custom drawn depiction of a 1930’s Buck Rogers Ray Gun toy, along with a customized text font in a style that evokes a neon sign. We created both the wordmark and logo icon as separate elements as well to be used for both signage and merchandise.
The Pink Party is Queer Geek’s annual tentpole event. Taking place during PAX West, Seattle’s largest annual geek and gamer festival, the party is the weekend’s premiere queer geek event, drawing upwards of 600 attendees to Capitol Hill’s Neumos. The website is updated annually with each year’s new party info, and also includes links back to photos from the previous year’s parties.
End AIDS Washington is a collaboration of community-based organizations, government agencies and educational and research institutions working together to reduce new infections in Washington by 50% by 2020. Getting insured, getting tested, getting PrEP, and getting treatment are great ways to help stop the spread of HIV. Together, we can end the HIV/AIDS epidemic in Washington.
There’s a queer knitting club that meets in a local Seattle coffee shop every Saturday morning. One of those dedicated knitters decided they wanted to branch out and teach a series of yarn knitting courses. Recognizing the importance of branding as a vital part of their messaging, they contracted with us to create a sleek new logo, along with some other branding elements, that will certainly help them launch their program in style.
Gay City: Seattle’s LGBTQ Center formed in 1995 during the AIDS epidemic with a small group of LGBTQ advocates. Since then, the nonprofit has grown to advocate for LGBTQ health, provide free HIV/STI testing, foster the arts, facilitate youth groups within many King County schools, support the LBGTQ community, provide two online databases of resources and become home to the largest LGBTQ library in the Pacific Northwest.
We designed a new site for MCW Events to replace their older, Flash based site. We built the new site as a clean, single page based on a customized Wordpress template. It incorporated their refreshed company branding style. This project also included custom image creation and photo editing, as well as extensive copywriting.
