Hallway Concert Timeline Panels Installed

In Color and the Santa Barbara Bowl have completed our three-year project to produce a large timeline of all the concerts that have taken place at the Bowl since they began hosting such performances in 1978.
 
The project began as an idea by Art Fisher, house photographer for the Bowl, which has dozens of historic concert photos backstage. The location of this amazing photography is odd since it is only visible to the performing artists and backstage personnel but not to the patrons who come to see the concerts. The project was conceived to bring some of these historic images into pubic light, where the patrons can enjoy them.
 
As the idea of the project matured, we decided to add a list of all the performances. The layout as suggested by Mr. Fisher was to span four 40x60 inch metal panels. The background would be a photo of the crowd and venue during a sold-out show, and it would span all four panels. Then each panel would have two columns, listing shows on each vertical edge, and an array of photos from select shows listed therein.

The project is now complete and installed and documents over 700 concerts from 1978 through 2011 with over 70 photos.
 
We started this project in late 2009 and finally installed it this year in mid August. The entire project was produced by In Color and funded by The Brittingham Family Foundation. Be sure to check it out in the public hallway tunnel that goes under the stage. The project is located between the men's and women's restrooms.

Cool logo for Liliu.co

In Color has designed a logo for an upcoming web portal for outrigger canoe paddlers. The website will be called Liliu.co.

The name is derrived from the world's largest long distance canoe race, called, The Queen Lili'uokalani Canoe Race. This anual race takes place in Kailua-Kona on the Big Island of Hawaii, and it was named after the queen, daughter of King Kamehameha, the first king of the Hawaiian Islands.

Paddlers refer to this race by its nickname, Lili'u. The logo was designed by In Color principal, Art Fisher. It consists of five canoe paddles, arranged in a manner to depict a plumeria, a flower commonly used in Hawaiian leis, and one that is seen widespread througout the Hawaiian Islands.

In Color is currently producing garments, hats and stickers with the logo. They will be for sale on Liliu.co.

In Color has been recognized for our outstanding design and implentation of the Joomla Content Management System (CMS) for the Arlington Theatre's website.

TheArlingtonTheatre.com is running on the Joomla platform. According to Templatemaster.com:

This website is enhanced with interactive menu elements and a very spectacular background. Overall this design looks just like it should to represent a theater.

Together through their subsidiary, In Color Digital Communities, Tom Widroe and Art Fisher received the UCSB Recreational Sports' Pioneer Award for 2012.

Rec Sports has recognized Mr. Widroe and Mr. Fisher for their contribution as pioneers in creating GauchosPlay.com, a website portal for users and faculty of their department. Together with department head, Paul Lee and a team of avid student employees, in 2008 In Color built and deployed a massive website for their benefit.

Since then, the site has undergone major revisions, and with several "student webmaster" teams spanning four years, the site has grown to become a indispensable resource for the Rec Sports department. GauchosPlay.com hosts over a thousand different pages of valuable content, including forms, schedules, rules, facility pages, and contact information for dozens of Sport Club, Intramural Sports and Adventure Club departments. It's truly an enterprise-class website.

There to present the award, inducting Mr. Widroe and Mr. Fisher into the Rec Sports Hall of Fame, were student web masters, Rochelle Farnum, John Batikian and Zak Weinberg.

Website for Bradford Brown Law Goes Live

Bradford Brown, Esq., is excited about the "go live" of his new website. This site was a collaborative effort. In Color and Vox Media provided project management, design and programming skills, while Mr. Brown solicited his own contacts for technical writing and photogrpahy. What may look like a simple little site, is actually a culmination of a tremendous amount of precise communication.

Mr. Brown commented, "Awesome: Thank you very much. This is very exciting for me... I think it's time to celebrate."

In Color is happy to have been able to have been part of this project. The new website is online at www.bradfordbrownlaw.com.
