• Pollinate Helps Wilson Celebrate 100 Years

    / Comments (0)

    Celebrating 100 years of being a business is quite an achievement. We did a little sleuthing and there are only 21,000 companies that can make that claim around the world. Pollinate recently helped sports equipment company Wilson celebrate their centennial by creating a site that retrospectively explores the company's long history.

    ␄Wilson asked us to create an experience for sports enthusiasts to enjoy the deep heritage Wilson has in inspiring and shaping the game of tennis, golf, baseball American football and basketball among other sports,” said Levi Patterson, Co-Founder of Pollinate. “Fans can now be a part of the journey, decade by decade, to experience the true love Wilson has for sports over the past 100 years and to have a chance to win their big ticket to the US Open tennis grand slam event.”

    The site is quite extensive and does a great job of exploring Wilson's history by decade. Some of the ads featured in the sections are fairly humorous. Take some time to check out the site and see some of the interesting history of this interesting company.

  • TEDxPortland

    We're apparently doing a double decker this time around as we shift our focus from the TEDxPortland event to the TEDxPortland website. We were struck by the fantastic monochromatic imagery and sweeping side to side panels that just look great on a wide screen monitor. The site is steeped in minimalism and uses very little color paired with a rock solid content structure. The site works fantastically across devices while staying with it's panel-style, anti-scrolling single screen presentation.This year to accompany the site and the event, there is even an ios app that you can download and use in conjunctions with the event.

    We're not sure who had their gifted little hands in this design, but we are kind of smitten (not in a &$8220;Her” kind of way) with this site and the design tlc that went into it.

  • Turnstyle by Design

    One of the most interesting projects in our minds are the ones where a designer is asked to employ their talents in designing a site for another studio. Hood River designer, Brett Schwager, recently finished work on a new minimalist site design for Seattle graphic design firm, Turnstyle Design. The new site replaces an older Flash style site and was designed to be fully responsive and device agnostic. We really like the minimalist approach taken with the design and how that slight framework places the work of the small firm front and center, allowing clients to quickly get into the work. Designers working for, and with, designers. Wonderful.

  • Field Armor 2 Moto Boot

    Industrial designer, Justin Pyle, recently posted the designs for the new Field Armor 2 Moto Boot from Icon. He and his soft goods design team, JBird Collective, worked on the motorcycle footwear crafting it from a list of materials that sound more like they belong in military gear than in men's footwear (Leather and ballistic nylon chassis, axialmetric steel shank, etc.). The resulting boots are simply futuristic cool. They look well suited to protecting your feet while giving you a touch of that Road Warrior spirit.
