TART Collections UPDATE and site facelift 2009

This year TART decided to mix things up a bit. They wanted to lose the horizontal lines and shape elements that have been the foundation of the layout. They never want to spring for a whole new site design so these kind of requests are a way to make the site look new and different, but you cannot just take out of a foundation without adjusting something else if you expetc things to remain standing, so I worked with some of the patterns they provided for this season and came up with an elegant solution that gave them a new look at the cost of an update.

Landing back in San Francisco in 1994, graphic designer Sean Brennan, immediately went native and started his own design studio: PXLFORGE. As a graphic artist with years of experience designing for media platforms ranging from print and the www to DVD interface and 3D product design, Sean and PXLFORGE handle projects large and small.

Recently Sean's work has been seen all over bus stops and bulletin boards in San Francisco's Castro in the form of ads, posters and logo designs for TRIGGER, Comedy in the Castro, Buddies with Benefits, Forward March, ACTIVATE! AsiaSF, the New BOC - Bar on Church and Lord Martine Global.

Sean was the designer of PALz - a line of block-figure toys from the now defunct Palisades Toys based on popular Fox properties Buffy the Vampire Slayer and the X-Files. He also worked as a production artist on the 900+ screens of the deluxe Lord of the Rings trilogy DVD collection.
