Scott is an accomplished author with five best selling books to his name. But with over 1,500 blog posts and tons of other content nearly impossible to find, there were improvements to be made.

With a focus on the content, Minion Pro was the chosen font, set in generous sizes for increased legibility.
Maybe the first restaurant website you don’t want to punch in the face.
Local Myth Pizza is — surprise! — a pizza restaurant. They have an eclectic vibe and fun atmosphere, and wanted to capture that in the site.
The design is all about the customer: they want to know when they’re open, where they’re located, how to call them, and what’s on the menu. This design makes all of those easy as pie (rimshot!), and includes some photos at the bottom for people who don’t know what pizzas or restaurants look like.

Note: We’re not taking on any new projects at this time.
