SillyCar Design was asked to create a new logo and website for Melander’s Martial Arts Academy when Sensei Jeff Melander returned to New York after some time working at Safety America Karate in Sugarland, Texas. We were very honored to be asked again after having created a logo and website together with Sensei Melander for Red Dragon Karate School back in 2015. This time Sensei Melander had an idea for the logo which we helped bring to life in two versions. Most people might not notice that the two silhouettes are of Sensei Melander (one as a child and one as an adult). The new website is more compact than the previous one and easier to get around quickly. It features a large map with topography turned on to show the cool mountains that are near the new dojo at 217 Dix Avenue in Glens Falls, New York. We were also fortunate enough to be asked to create some temporary banners for the front of the building (which were designed to be repurposed for a second use being carried in parades) and to create graphics for the front door and windows of the facility.
Joel would like to thank a great friend and fellow business owner for choosing to work with SillyCar Design. If you or anyone you know have any interest in martial arts at all, this is a great place to check out!
