What's Offered

Web Design

Like putting together a perfect cup of coffee, Abstractionz brings the cream and sugar to your project by combining design and development in our service. The result: a website that is appealing to look at, is well organized, informative, has everything you need (and maybe didn’t think of), and flows smoothly.

 

Branding & Graphic Design

A visual identity that vibes with your company is important. From your logo to your letterhead, each element of color and style should tell the right story.

 

 

Print Design

Even in this fast-growing digital age, you may need an old-fashioned flyer, business card, postcard, and other printed goods for advertising.

Logo Design

Logo design services include new logo creation or redesigning your current logo. 

 

About

The Designer

I’m a freelance website designer operating under the name Abstractionz. Having been in the biz since 1998, I bring a lot of creativity, experience, and ideas to every project.

The first website that got me started was a fan website for my favorite band, The Monkees. Over the years, I’ve had the privilege to work with a wide range of clients from all different places—municipal, musicians, non-profit, artists, digital content producers, businesses large and small. 

My hobbies include hiking, video games, and photography. I’m a past president and served four years on the board of the Kankakee Area Jaycees. In addition, I’m a current member of Rotary 609, operating out of the greater Kankakee River valley area. 

Websites are made while sipping coffee and listening to rock-n-roll. ☕

Reviews

As a public water supply operation, providing information and online billing to our users is important. Abstractionz developed and maintains our website in a prompt, professional manner at a very reasonable cost. I can not say enough positive things about our dealings with this fine business.

-Joe Cosgrove, Godley Water District

Abstractionz redesigned two websites for us with quick turnarounds, and maintains/updates them for reasonable rates, including dealing with some hosting transfers and other confusing background work. Great to work with and maintains contact via several methods.

-Jessica Johnson, Mounds Theatre

My business hired Abstractionz to redesign our website, and it was a great experience. We have a great working relationship, the service was very reasonably priced, and we couldn’t be happier with the final product. Highly recommended.

In 2021, we shook everything up by shifting some of the design elements to give the website a retro feel while updating how information is displayed.

About The Client

The Mounds Theatre was originally built in 1922 as a venue for silent movies and live entertainment. In 2001 renovations began to restore the theater after it was used as a warehouse. Today, the theater had become a part of the community featuring a range of entertainment and small productions.

What Was Done

The website had gone improperly updated for some time. Abstractionz worked with the theater to update information and give the website a new look. A special touch was added with an animated recreation of the Mounds lighted sign featured on the front of their building.
