Ocean Jet Ski Rental • Small Business

Website re-design for Ocean Jet Ski Rental, a young company based out of Wells, Maine.

The client asked for a colorful, "fun vibe" so we went with a light blue and white theme with plenty of photos on display throughout the pages.

Project included a new custom logo design, an option for online reservations, as well as a heavy emphasis on getting found in search engines. The company is currently #1 for Google searches of "jet ski rentals maine"

Gino Vannelli • Recording Artist

Working on Grammy-nominated artist Gino Vannelli's website was a huge project in every way imaginable.

We built a fan-comment driven blog using Wordpress and focused on keeping high resolution live concert photos as the emphasis to give a high class look.

Integrated Facebook widget, an extensive interactive discography, and tons of embedded YouTube videos make this project one of our largest in recent memory.

Enabler • Recording Artist

Extreme metal band from Milwaukee, signed to Southern Lord.

Due to the nature of the band, we wanted to focus on keeping a dark/gloomy vibe as far as aesthetics, and we feel we accomplished this goal quite well.

Enabler's website is powered by Wordpress with embedded YouTube videos for live concert footage and a custom sidebar to display the band's online merch store, Twitter and Facebook.

Cutting his teeth in the music industry for 10+ years, Great Pond Design owner Ryan O’Connor spent time on both ends of the spectrum – touring internationally, as well as working behind the scenes – booking national tours and managing independent artists.

After developing websites for various recording artists, from extreme metal acts like Enabler, to Grammy-nominated soft-rock legend Gino Vannelli, it shouldn’t come as a surprise to find that O’Connor has merged his two worlds. O’Connor admits, “Surprisingly, web development and working in music aren’t that much different. They both require a creative thought-process – you can’t be afraid to think outside of the box and take risks.”

Settling in a quiet lake community in Central Maine, in present day, along with handling day to day operations at Great Pond Design, O’Connor still finds time to part-time for V2 Concert Promotion, a global operation with offices in LA and Norwalk, CT, as well as co-owning and managing Florida-based record label, Think Fast Records.
