Web Applications

Web-based application development - using a web application to establish and maintain records of customers, clients, products, etc. - is just one advantage of an online presence. Accessibility to records by many people in many locations is another.

    The state director of the Master Gardener Program for Kansas provided me with a "grocery list" of features and items he wanted for his on-line reports database application.

    The features include the ability for a county-level program coordinator to create a unique county profile for their EMG members consisting of annual hour requirements and custom sets of volunteer and training opportunity categories. Features also include the ability to keep track of prospects for the program and print mailing labels both for entire member lists and specifically for those without email addresses. And of course, th ability to run a variety of reports and export to the Excel Spreadsheet file format (.csv) is standard..

    Also included are Tutorial Videos showing how to use the site to Master Gardeners (such as how to enroll, submit Volunteer Hours Reports and Export cumulative reports to .csv files) and to County Level Coordinators (creating a county profile, run reports and print mailing labels.)

Recently Completed Projects
(April 2014)

Economical Graphic Design according to your needs and budget completed and delivered on time.

We strive to accomplish this on every project we undertake - from business cards to billboards.

The RJ Jacob Design Logo features typographic symbols.The test of a well designed print media piece is, "Does it communicate? Is it understandable? Is the intention of the creator easily received?" Often the design gets in the way of the message and the intended audience misses the point entirely. So much attention gets paid to special effects and fancy tricks that the design becomes the message. This is especially true in web design but is also found in print.

Color, layout and text all should combine into a unit that clearly conveys a meaning. "Keep it simple and effective" is our mantra.

Print Samples

  • All About Windows Brochure
    The client chose the color scheme, text, logo and photos. The rest was up to me.
  • Branson Entertainer Delene Concert Poster
    A poster created for a performance in Appleton, WI. The collage idea was suggested to me by her marketing manager at the time.
  • Missouri Master Gardener 2009 Conference Logo
    The only stipulation for the design was to have the state-shaped symbol inside the "o" of "growing." The "Missouri" font and water reference behind it are a tribute to the old state license plate.
  • Delene Entertainment Tri-fold Brochure, outside
    The question was, "How best to promote Branson area entertainers for off-season engagements?" We came up with the idea of "Where do they all go..." and went from there. The colorful block design was inspired by a web page for a California art museum. Another requirment was that the brochure must be ready for mailing with first class postage.
  • Lewin Productions Show Ad
    The artwork was pretty much in place. I made several modifications for the client.
  • Business Card for Massage Therapist
    I used a "hands on" theme with photo and background to match Stacy's coloring.
  • Signature Records Nashville Logo
    This logo was intended to be an upgrade from an earlier one which was really just an italic font. There was a desire to include "SRN" as the company was expanding beyond the basic functions of a record distribution company into other areas of the entertainmcontentent business. The idea was to eventually drop the "Signature Records Nashville" entirely for the "SRN" graphic.
  • The Club Tri-fold Brochure, inside
    The challenge continued on the inside spread of this brochure. How to promote comedians without knowing who they are or being able to use any pictures? (No contracts had been signed!) We went with stock photos to represent the idea of comedians and relied heavily on the other features of the venue.
