Bold Turquoise Makeover Project

Our latest project! I {Becca} was able to work with one of my best and dearest friends on this one, MacKenzie of BOLD Turquoise! This complete custom makeover of her blog was both a challenge and a creative delight for The Geek and Me. Original and custom – everything!

My favorite part? The graphics – don’t you just love all those amazing fonts and nifty decorations?! Completely out of my personal box…and I love it! So clean and simple, yet bold (ha!) and perfectly reflective of MacKenzie’s creative style and sweet personality.

The Geek’s favorite part? Learning lots of new geeky things about lots of geeky technical stuff. {Yeah, that’s about as “normal-person” speak as I can reword what he just dictated to me – you’re welcome!} So, What does this mean? {yes, I happen to be Lutheran} It means we’re now evne more equiped for whatever you can throw at us, technically speaking. Thanks MacKenzie! 😉

Ironic Adventures version 2

The first featured project we’d like to share with everyone is the redesign of  ironicadventures.com.  This is a total redesign from the client’s {haha, yes Geek, the “client” was me!} previous blog and is done almost entirely in HTML5 and CSS3. The only javascript on the entire thing is used for the accordion sections on a couple of pages. My wife The client wanted something playful, modern, and fun. The design was inspired by “the client’s” love of scrapbooking as well as the idea of “posting” ideas and things on a cork board.

We’re very proud of this design and we hope you enjoy it as well. {yes, thank you, my Geek – I love it!}

A New Beginning

So, with every new year comes a chance to start over again. With that in mind, “Sola Gratia Designs” is now “The Geek and Me.”  My wife and I have decided to officially team up to do web design and computer work together (though we’ve  been doing it unofficially for years). While it’s sad to see the previous incarnation of this venture disappear it’s also exciting to start something new.

We’re excited to get started and hope everyone else is as well. Here’s to a new year and new possibilities!
