That’s some tasty layout

I’ve been doing some photo, branding, design, organization – basically I’ve been acting as a marketing/ad agent for a local company.  These guys —–> Wonderland Lanes.

It’s a bowling center in Commerce, Michigan that’s about to relaunch their grille as a no-holds-barred rockin’ restaurant.

Maybe a couple months back, I dropped a sneek preview at some of the food photos.  Now, we’re in the midst of full-on advertisements.

Don’t drool on your keyboard – it’s bad for it.

A Wonderfully Delicious Series

Hey!  I shot a menu!  It was a delicious day…

You may have seen this post (in fact my very first post).  For the past 8 months or so, I have been acting as visual/marketing coordinator for a local bowling center (Wonderland Lanes in Commerce, Michigan).

There’s been stuff like advertisement photos, event coverage, high school leagues – basically full coverage.  Even busted into logo and business card designs.

Recently the hard and heavy phase of projects got under way.  Wonderland is home to The Mad Hatter Pub.  However, unlike the everyday bowling bar – this place has some tricks.  Comedy night’s a huge hit, as is Wonderband.  Basically there’s some ambiance you wouldn’t expect.

Of course the food is a welcome surprise, as well.  That’s where the menu comes in.  A little bit ago we began getting the raw “ingredients” set up for all the upcoming promotional material.  With the culinary mastermind, Bobby Durrant, the whole shoot got knocked out in one day.  Now, extra-designy Ashley Lawler is in progress of menu layout.

There’s to be a heck of an unveiling for the new items, but – for you folks – here’s a little sneak peek.

Blatant Filler Post

Hey guys –

Sorry I haven’t gotten a post up in the last few days.  Things got crazy busy over the weekend and they pretty much required my full attention.  BUT DON’T FRET!  As soon as a spare hour or dozen pop up this week, I’ll have some super-awesome stuff to share.

For now, let us dwell on the unseasonably favorable weather we’ve been having.  Even though things have dialed back to a more spring-like temperature (which is good) I still have the upcoming summer right on the forefront of my mind.  Many people think of things like picnics, camping, or family trips.

I love food.

Specifically I like to cook.  A lot.  Grilling too.  OK, not “too.”  If I had my say, almost all of my food would be grilled.  Except soup.  That get’s tricky.

But vegetables.  Grilled vegetables are the way to go in the summer time.  In that regard, I present you with the vision of summer dancing in my head.  And yes – I grilled all these myself.  But not on a grill… on an electric stove.  I did, however eat that garlic.  It was fantastic.

I wish this picture was “click and smell.”
