Almost Done!

I went to the shop at night and got some great shots of the storefront. The neon lights really add character to the photographs. This was originally for the contact page but because Chris figured out how to embed a google map, we can stick this photo in the about gallery.

We went to the shop last Tuesday and Evil Don really liked our progress. We were able to get our 404 page photos taken.

One more week: here we go!

We have been putting the final touches on our photographs and formatting them the same way. We have three pages with many photographs, so they are definitely an important element to our site.

This week, I am going to try to take a photograph of the tattoo shop from outside at night and continue to help prepare the photographs for the site. I need to create thumbnails for the skin gallery.

So, Jenessa and Chris were able to go to Evil Don's shop last week and take a ton of cool photographs for the shop gallery and the fine art gallery. The tattoo gallery will be scanned from Evil Don's portfolio. I've spent the last week touching up the photographs and getting them ready for web. Above you can see a photograph of a sign Evil Don had made to match his logo. Pretty cool!

Ready for the proposal

This weekend my group and I got together and worked on our proposal. I think we have a very thorough creative brief, so that helped with the presentation! This week we are meeting with Evil Don on Tuesday to take photographs of him and his shop. It's nice that he has been so available to us for meetings.

My current task is creating a good "mask" for some of the photographs to give them a vintage-y feel.

So, we met with Evil Don today to show him some different ideas and I'd say it went really well! He responded positively to our ideas and our comps of the homepage. We showed him a few different type treatment options and narrowed it down to the lit neon-sign look.

We set a meeting with him for this Tuesday to come take some photographs of the exterior and interior of the shop. These photographs will be used as content for the website.

This weekend Chris, Jennessa, and I are meeting to finalize everything for our proposal on Tuesday.

All in all, still stoked about the website!

Update: Evil Don Tattoos

So, we have switched jobs around. Chris is now the Information Architect.

Last time we met with Don, he seemed really excited at the idea of having a website to showcase his work. He is the only artist at the his shop, so by default, the site will be all about him and his work.

He gave us a card with tons of photos of his tattoo work that we plan to use as content for the website. Some of the photos will be perfect for the portfolio portion of his site.

We will be meeting with him again soon to show him some ideas.
