These guys wanted to take their business to the next level. They needed a trusty, rusty, earnest and hearty look, to create a brand few (if any) bloggers have attempted. I harnessed my mania and went to work. The work was worky. The work worked.
Strategy, story, gentlemanly advice, design, color, texture, copywriting, development, implementation, and a good deal of Bin & Jitters.
Chase is one of the most alarming people I’ve ever worked with. The problem is, he doesn’t know when to stop. He keeps surpassing all of your expectations, over and over (in the best way). It will be hard to work with anyone else after this.” Jonathan Mead, site owner/operator
Is Chase Reeves the hottest designer out there right now?
Yep. He is. He doesn’t know how to dress himself, but he sure knows how to dress up a website.” Derek Halpern, July 12, 2012
For designers, finding that perfect balance between aesthetics and usefulness is often an elusive goal. Chase knows how to find the sweet spot where form and function intersect, as evidenced by his simple yet bold, typography-driven designs.” Chris Pearson
Innovative new site from @jonathanmead.” Brian Clark, July 12, 2012
I’m so proud and excited to see @jonathanmead unveil his re-brand and redesign... Way to go, JM!” Charlie Gilkey, July 12, 2012
Congrats on the re-launch, Jonathan! The new site looks incredible, and the focus feels a lot tighter and truer to what you’re all about. Well done!” Tyler Tervooren, July 12, 2012
It’s here & it’s explosive...” Jenysha Polk, July 12, 2012
Unbelievable. You guys nailed it. Big time congrats — looking forward to the journey ahead.” Brett Henley, July 12, 2012
The site looks amazing. I love the focus on the content and the Backpack rocks! I can’t wait to share the link to it with everyone I know.” Jennifer Blanchard, July 12, 2012
I’m completely blown away by the simplicity, elegance and focus on value + adding subscribers.” Ryan Hanley, July 12, 2012
@jonathanmead Redesign is hot, man. Great work. Also, looks sooo Portland. :)” Dusti Arab, July 12, 2012
The site is absolutely gorgeous... looks unique, and not like a generic ‘high conversion’ wordpress theme. It’s clear that a lot of thought went in all around.” Ethan Waldman, July 12, 2012
A close collaboration to bring the brand, messaging, and story up to “pro” status. These guys want to be a market leader. Now they look like one. It’s one of my favorite things to be a part of: bringing the substance of the experience up to the quality of the content.

Floored by this killer Thesis design. Responsive with a rockin' color palette.” — Chris Pearson (@pearsonified) May 30, 2012
Dude, you guys are amazing. I have to say this is definitely one of the best blog designs I’ve seen in a VERY long time, and it’s making me re-think my own design as well. Kudos to you and your entire team!” — Pat Flynn May 30, 2012
My buddy @CorbettBarr just unleashed a super polished new design for Think Traffic. Really neat.” — Adam Baker (@ManVsDebt) May 30, 2012
Just going through this right now, and I’ve got to say that I love some of the attention to detail.” — Derek Halpern May 29, 2012
This absolutely just blew my mind. You guys took things to a completely different level. Words can’t describe it – seriously. Hat’s off. With how I feel right now, I can’t imagine how fired up you guys are. Let the celebration begin... Here's to raising the bar!” — Scott Dinsmore May 29, 2012
Dude... LOVE IT. That’s it. I’m still catching my breath!” — Chris C. Ducker May 30, 2012
This just might very well be the best blog redesign I've ever seen. Huge congrats @CorbettBarr!” — Juha Liikala (@juhaliikala) May 30, 2012
I’ll be the contrarian. I don’t like it so much. It seems like you’ve made changes similar to what Google has been doing. Having said that, I still wish you much success with the changes.” — Shlomo May 29, 2012. Editor's Note: This was too good not to include! My bad, Shlomo!
These phenomenal women needed a brand to move them forward, a welcoming and uncluttered site, and some expert help with lead generation. I did my best, it turned out great.
