Parsons Realty

Parsons Realty Group already had a pretty recognizable logo around Northern California. They came to us asking for a little modernizing and a little polishing of their logo and identity system while still remaining true to the original color scheme and professional perception. We jazzed up the logo by treating it with custom lettering. We're proud to serve the fine folks at Parsons! If you're looking… View More

Crown Camera

Crown Camera has been a staple in the Redding community since 1957 so we didn't think twice about helping out with their new logo design. Crown approached us looking for an updated look that would help them both retain their long-time customer base while getting the attention of the younger generation of photography enthusiasts. Bottom line: they wanted to up their "cool" factor. A business with a… View More

Client Responsibilities: What’s my role?

The design process can be pretty overwhelming at times. We totally get it — random design jargon is being thrown out left and right, designers going off on color story and type treatment options, talk of target demographics and competition, the whole bit. As part of a marketing team, we live and breathe design every day so it can be easy for us to forget sometimes that clients can be totally… View More

Tehama County Website

We are so glad we had the opportunity to help out Tehama County with their website refresh. Since this is a site that gets lots of traffic from people looking for government-related information, it was super important that the site was more functional than ever. Aside from looking nice, we were also looking for a way to make the site more intuitive for users over time, while still storing the tons… View More

HOW Design Live Conference

Last week part of our marketing team got to go to the HOW Design Live Conference in San Francisco. The team came back re-energized, with our minds full of new information and ideas. Individually we came back with exciting experiences but I think we'll let Amanda speak for us as she summed it up best in saying... If I have one thing to say about my HOW Design Live experience it would be that I felt… View More

Friday Show and Share

Formal introductions of our team will come soon but we can't wait to share how much we love our programmer Nate. Not only is he a great guy to have around, he is a problem solver who loves a challenge and always finds a solution. Above is a picture of his wall and when we walked in we saw how crazy his "diagram" looked, he said with a smile,"dude, this solved so many problems today!"  Nate, although… View More

We are wrapping up and… View More

Love Is In The Air

Anyone who’s met Kristin and Michael Good knows they’re a match made in Heaven… but West Coast Marketing paired with Goods is a dream come true, too! We really loved working with these two to create a functional, affordable, and simple wedding system for their big day in beautiful Trinidad, CA.   The Goods were looking for a classic and sleek feel that suited the overall theme… View More

Douglas City House

We’re stoked to announce the launch of DouglasCityHouse.com. This home is a beaut! Located on the Trinity River in Douglas City, this vacation/retreat rental house is perfect for organizations, churches, or families to get away. The owners of the “DC” house, as it’s been lovingly nicknamed, came to us looking for a way to spread the word about their home, and right away we… View More

MD Imaging

We get to work with the awesome group at MDImaging. How lucky are we?! We’re proud to say that we serve behind the scenes as web developers for a range of MDI’s web projects, but recently we had the opportunity to design two brochures and a pricing card for them as well. The goal was to integrate the same look and feel of their current “Love Your Legs” campaign and to do it… View More
