These folders are a part of a larger branding/design project for the UNM Foundation. We have a lot of new work for UNM and other clients that will be showing up here soon.
Thanks for reading another installment of the 3 Bicycles Creative blog. Since the New Year began we've started working with a number of wonderful, new clients. We're kicking off print and web projects for Ripley’s Believe It or Not! Key West, Ripley's Orlando, Ripley's Grand Prairie and Beck Total Office Intereiors.
7 years ago today 3bicycles.com was born. There have been many iterations of this site. It started out as a place to experiment with web technologies and show off the occasional side project. Now it's the online home of a more traditional design studio, but the goal has always been the same: strive to create and promote serious design, while trying not to take ourselves too seriously.
Many thanks to our family, friends and clients for supporting 3 Bicycles Creative over the years. We're excited to be growing and helping more clients than ever moving into 2013.
Have a Happy Holiday and a Wonderful New Year!
The logo we designed for Rice Custom Cars went up in lights in front of their new facility last month. They provide high-end custom tinting, audio systems and wheels. Rice Custom Cars is a sister company of Rice Toyota / Scion in Greensboro, North Carolina, one of the largest Toyota dealerships in the Southeast.
We'll be creating a new website for Rice Custom Cars soon, so stay tuned for that. Also, take a look at another website we just launched for Rice Collision Center. It's a custom WordPress website with facility photo gallery, online estimate forms and a lot more.
We recently launched a new website for the Rio Grande Arts & Crafts Festivals. They have been running the largest arts & crafts festivals in New Mexico since 1989. The shows are consistently ranked among the top 100 in the country and feature the works from 280 of the best artists & craftsmen from all over the United States.
The new site has a completely custom design which is build on top of the WordPress CMS. Some features we baked into the site include: editable artist's photo galleries, newsletter sign-up form, HTML5 video, monthly cloud backups and scheduled reporting using Google Analytics.
We've had a number of new client partnerships in the past month that we're really excited about. 3 Bicycles Creative has started on web design and marketing projects with the recently opened Ripley's Believe It Or Not in Baltimore, Rice Toyota Scion, and Rio Grande Arts & Crafts Festivals.
Not only is a great to start new relationships, but it's nice to start them with people who are really passionate about their businesses. We already have 2 new pieces to add to our portfolio from Rice Toyota Scion and Ripley's. We'll be posting those in the next week or two.
Design matters. Give us a call if you want be our next client, and thanks for stopping by!
The world of SEO has always been a shifting, fluid medium. So it comes as no surprise that Google continues to refine its search algorithms, and in the process keeps us on our toes. But, with the release of Penguin and now Panda, I believe the core of solid SEO practices have not changed. Here is my number one piece of advice:
Write Content For Humans
Content is still king. The new Panda algorithm penalizes sites that have poor quality content. In the eyes of Google, poor quality content is unnaturally rich in keywords, and or is linked or copied from low quality sources. The solution: write original content for real people, and write it often.
The new WordPress FUSO Bicycles website is live. March 2nd marked the official relaunch of the FUSO Bicycles brand. Since the 80's, FUSO has had a cult following... now they truly are back by popular demand. Four FUSO models debuted at NAHBS 2012 in Sacramento: the FUSO Original, OS-Lug, OS-Tig, and OS Twin.
When Master frame builder Dave Moulton first introduced the FUSO in 1984, it quickly became a favorite with racing cyclists and road bike enthusiasts alike. The FUSO was the bike to own during the 1980s. Russ Denny, Dave Moulton’s former apprentice is now re-introducing the FUSO. All the basic design qualities that made the original FUSO such a great bicycle frame in the first place, have been retained.
Many of the earlier FUSOs are still owned by their original owners who bought them in the 1980s; others are sought after by collectors. The New FUSO also will certainly be destined to follow its predecessor, and claim its place in bicycle history. ENJOY THE RIDE!
3 Bicycles Creative has relocated to Albuquerque, New Mexico! Just a quick thanks to all of our clients who have been patient with us during the transition. January was all about tying up loose ends in North Carolina, but from this point forward we are back running at full speed.
It's been a very busy 2012 so far and I'm very excited to finally be getting settled and unpacked. We're already soaking in the mountains and the fresh air of the high desert. We have a lot of new projects in the works, some launching this week even. Check back here for more news.
