Recently helped a friend launch a small business as a miniature painter in Sydney, called ‘Brush with Destiny Studios‘. It’s kindof a niche market, giving me the chance to really have fun and design something a bit quirky.
The logo has a slight coat-of-arms feel to it, using elements of both the Warhammer and fantasy miniatures that Douglas Taylor paints, and also incorporates some painting imagery as well.
I haven’t personally seen the printed business cards yet but I’ll add a photo as soon as I get a sample.
The client was after a low cost, low maintenance website and was prepared to do a fair bit of the work himself of maintaining content and figuring out how to use the CMS, so we went with a Hover URL forwarded to a WordPress blog, using the Structure theme and I added a few template posts to illustrate the potential.
So far its a roaring success! The new website had over a four hundred pageviews this week and the client has had a lot of good feedback on the business cards, which he plans to place in hobby shops and Games Workshop outlets around Sydney.
