Company: Discovery Expeditions & Adventures
Summary: Discovery Expeditions & Adventures is a travel company that specializes in adventure trips to Israel, Petra, Africa and Peru. They also do custom tours to just about anywhere you want to go. They needed a logo and web design that matched the adventurous feeling of their trips.
The client had scanned an old ink drawing of a camel that he wanted to incorporate into the logo. I used Adobe Illustrator to create an old-style travel sticker for the logo. I then used Adobe Photoshop to design the site. The site is programmed in ColdFusion using standards based html and css. I used Adobe Flash and SlideShowPro to create the photo gallery on the home page and the jQuery Lightbox plugin to create the individual photo galleries on each trip’s page.
I also started a social media campaign for the client including a tumblr blog and Twitter and Facebook accounts. I carried that brand across to these sites as well and gave the client a tutorial on how to best use them to increase business.
It was a very fun project to work on and I am very pleased with how it turned out.
