Karass Website

After creating The Karass Inn’s logo I set to work creating a website for them. They used checkfront.com to handle the booking side of things so I was left to simply create the presentation side.

I used the Make Theme with only slight modifications to the CSS. Mainly to create the pop-ut Book Now button. The site looks great on mobile too:

The address, phone, and email at the top work incredibly well on mobile. By using proper Uniform Resource Identifier schemes with the links available applications will launch when they are clicked. You’re probably already familiar with mailto: which almost all email links use, it looks like this:

<a href=”mailto:TheKarassInn@gmail.com”>TheKarassInn@gmail.com</a>

While the phone uses tel: like so:

<a href=”tel:8028755878″>(802)-875-5878</a>

So when you’re on a phone and click the link it automagically launches the phone application and makes the call.

I love being able to add these little details!

If you’re ever in Chester Vermont you should stay with The Karass Inn

Two Old Guys Go Hiking Book Cover

My dad recently wrote a book about hiking on the Appalachian Trail. He reached out to me to do a book cover, here’s what I made him:

old-men-book-cover-DRAFT1

I used one of my favorite fonts: norwester and integrated a public domain hiking icon from the noun project

The real fun bit was that the original photo he wanted to use only had one old guy hiking, so I used some photoshop magic to add in the other old guy.

A surprisingly quick project that came together really nicely.
