Just wanted to let some recent sites that recognized Astrel know how much I appreciate it. I was featured a while back on Creattica and I’d encourage you to make us a favorite. I was also recently featured in an article on Design Shack. More features include an Honorable Mention on The CSS Awards and features on Make Better Websites among others.
It’s been a crazy past year as I went from running Astrel Creative full time to being picked up by Odopod as an Art Director in San Francisco. Now that my family and I are settled out here it feels like I can finally breathe and get things back to normal. 2010 will be an amazing year for design as IA and UX come to the forefront. For the first time it really feels interactive is growing into a legitimate role in the business landscape, where sites are approached with the same integrity and scrutiny as a company’s product. I am excited to see where things go over the next decade and can’t wait to play a role!
I just had the chance to add quite a bit of new stuff to the work section. New projects feature the all new Beatport, Battor Country Club, and Ford Vehicles. On the Ford project make sure to click “View Photoshop Process” for an inside look at how some of the feature spots were made.
Well, it’s been a long time coming. Welcome to the new portfolio website for Astrel Creative, home of my design work. Astrel Creative is the branded name for the freelance work of myself, Dave Soderberg, and my network of other freelance designers and developers that I pull in from time to time on projects. Hope you enjoy the site and check back for updated work and information.
I finally flipped the switch and decided Astrel Creative should go full time. Today is officially my first day on the job! Huge thanks to Beatport for 4 amazing years of employment.
The New Beatport microsite has gotten a lot of recognition lately. Really excited about the success of the campaign and the buzz the site has been getting. Big thanks to the sites that have been posting and linking to it. Awards received thus far include: Dope Award | Website Design Award
