Read Local San Diego

Monday, December 7th, 2009

Read Local San Diego (www.sandiego.readlocal.org/) is one of the most elaborate blog customization we’ve done at Monkey C. The portal is powered by a Word Press blog, with a log-in module for subscribers. I had a lot of fun coming up with the background, frame, and banners. Read Local San Diego is a new forum for local South California authors to connect and mingle. Stop by and support our local authors! J Frizza

Divine Betrayal

Thursday, December 3rd, 2009

www.divinebetrayal.com has been one of my favorite projects this year at Monkey C. Author Graceann Deters trusted us with the promotion of her remarkable memoir “Divine Betrayal.” The book recounts the author’s life as a young girl, daughter of a missionary man working in Brazil. Designing the website and print collateral was a pleasure indeed; Graceann’s old photographs and story are a mind-blowing archive replete with vivid memories. J Frizza

The Waterman

Tuesday, December 1st, 2009

At Monkey C Media we just finished another fantastic Word Press Blog customization. This new blog site is home to Norris van den Berg’s new book “The Waterman,” a historical fiction novel set in the time of the American Civil war. Check it out: www.norrisvandenberg.com. The book’s theme gave me the opportunity to include patterns, script fonts and art in the design … the overall look of the site came together nicely. J Frizza

Documentary: “Restaurando a Héctor”

Monday, October 19th, 2009

My talented sister Dea, a film maker based in Barcelona, Spain, created and produced a fabulous documentary that follows the restoration of a Rhinoceros’ head. She put me in charge of all the graphic aspects of the project: Titles, credits, posters, DVD cover and some of the drawings and photographs featured in the film. The final movie is amazing! It won awards and has been featured in film festivals. Take a look at the trailer …

Website Design: “Fusion Economics”

Wednesday, October 14th, 2009

“www.Fusion Economics.com” is a handsome new customized Word Press site I recently finished designing for a Monkey C Media client [Art Director: Jeniffer Thompson.] The site is a useful platform to promote Switzerland based author Randy Charles Epping’s book, and showcase his TV appearances.

The book “Fusion Economics,” a guide ‘to survive and thrive in the new global marketplace,’ has been translated in several languages and received a lot of media attention. It is indeed, a handy manual to understand the state of the economy these days. J Frizza

Need a handyman? My friend Markus and wife Genevieve are setting up a new company dedicated to help anyone in need of repairs around the house. They hired me to come up with the logo for such enterprise. In return for the art, Markus came and fixed the broken kitchen window… I love bartering!

Logo: Aguara

Saturday, September 26th, 2009

“Aguara” is the name of the native Paraguayan red fox. Aguara is a word in Guarani, the native language of Paraguay, that literally means fox.  Aguara is also the name of my sister’s new venture, dedicated to promote and export native crafts from Paraguay, including pottery, textiles and such. She asked me to come up with a logo to suit the endeavor. And here it is! The playful logo is a cute memorable emblem, combining the concepts of the fox and the native pottery… What do you think? JF
