Here’s something a little different from DBDA: a series of web banner ads for the 2011 Seattle Erotic Ball. The campaign we designed included posters, postcards, and print and web advertising was full of loud colors, grungy textures and gothic type. As you can see, we’re fully adept at many different design styles and aesthetics.
Here’s a fun poster we just did for the Pearl District’s Claus and Paws holiday benefit event for Dove Lewis. If you have a dog or cat, or even something more exotic please bring your little friend down to Lexidog Pearl on Sunday, December 5th from 11AM to 3PM and have their picture taken with Santa Claus.
Yes, that’s where the name came from. Did you think that it was the exciting story of a cranky cat who drinks too much and a seemingly dim-witted, but actually quite intelligent dog who work as extra Christmas help in the Pearl District, but then crack unsolvable crimes at night. That would be a great show … Anybody?

Not all advertising has to be full-page to make an impact. Take for example these two quarter-page and sixth-page ads for Wilfs restaurant that make some noise with breaking the advertising budget. They’re small, but still have plenty of impact. Contact us today to help you with your advertising plans, big and small.
It’s almost that time of year again. Time to deck your halls with Holiday advertising and marketing materials.
