Portfolio

One of the biggest questions you can have when looking for a website designer has to be "is their work really any good?" It is definitely a good question to be asking. There are many out there that claim to be high-quality, professional web designers - but their end product (or more correctly the output of their 'website-in-a-box' design software) tells the real story.

The portfolio below is a compilation of design work Fire Nebula has done for past clients. The portfolio should give you an impression of the kind of work that we can do for you, and how our abilities and design styles have grown and matured. We will let the sites and graphics speak for themselves.

Graphic Design Portfolio

WYASFAA Logo Design (2002)
WYASFAA Logo Design

This logo design was submitted to the Wyoming Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators (WYASFAA) as part of their logo design contest.

The text in the outer circle was added in order to give additional textual direction to the image's graphical message.

This design took Second Place in the competition.

CWC Webstudents Program Logo (2002)

This image was submitted as part of a student logo design contest for the CWC Webstudents program.

This design won the competition and was then featured on the redesigned CWC Webstudents page.

The concept behind the design was to show perspective using a gridded room lined with code and web-related jargon.
