MacPherson Opticians was looking to update their existing website to make it more attractive and modern.

The DreamDog Foundation has been one of our oldest and best clients. We have worked together on many good-willed and sorely needed projects like helping school children develop a love of reading to writing lyrics to music videos they create. This new site helps deliver the message DreamDog so earnestly fosters and shares with all children – Visit the DreamDog site.
BAR – Beverage Alcohol Resource
The BAR site has been upgraded and is now ready for the next season of the BAR 5-Day Certification Program. If you are a bartender or interested in mixology this program is not to be missed. Students can apply online, make payments and do it from any desktop, tablet and mobile device thanks to the innovative responsive design we created. It’s an easy site to navigate no matter how you get to it – check it out.
Founded by BAR member Doug Frost and one of the leaders in the spirits and drink world, DrinkSkool allows pretty much anyone old enough to think for themselves to learn a boatload of knowledge about mixology. Zenarts worked closely with Doug to create a comprehensive website for students to learn about this mysterious craft. Check it out.
Petswelcome is the largest and possibly oldest website for people with pets who like to travel. Governed by a board of canines and a feline that keeps them all in line, it is one of the best run organizations on the web – or so they like to think. Check it out for yourself – if you and your best friend hit the road make sure you visit this site for all your pet-friendly accommodations. Zenarts works almost daily on various aspects of the site to make it the best possible web travel experience.
Cleaning Up The Class – k12

In The Presence Of Spirits – National Museum of African Art
This is a virtual tour of the exhibition of highlights from the African art collection of the Museum Nacional de Etnologia in Lisbon, Portugal. This was the first time such an exhibition highlighting their African collection has ever traveled to the United States and very few of the objects in the museum’s collection have ever been on view outside of Europe. We were honored to be selected to create a web presence for the exhibit. Take the tour.
Zenarts Design Studio was approached by Augusto Odone of The Myelin Project to help visualize the process of myelin breakdown in the human body so doctors and patients alike could better understand the nature of this devastating disease. We worked closely with Augusto whose son Lorenzo was stricken with the ailment at a young age. The movie Lorenzo’s Oil starring Nick Nolte as Augusto Odone and Susan Sarandon as his wife Michaela, helped make Lorenzo Odone’s story famous throughout the world. You can learn more about Augusto, Lorenzo and the movie on the Myelin Project websitesite.
The creative and driving force behind many award winning children’s books, music, videos, and hands-on classroom appearances around the Washington, DC area, Rainey is a whirlwind of positive energy. Learn more about what Rainey can bring to your kid’s classroom at Rainey.tv.
Zenarts Photographic Services
At one time we explored the idea of offering photographic services to collectors but after looking into the legal and insurance pitfalls we found it was much better to spend our time kayaking and playing music ’til the cows come home. Since we don’t have any cows, we’ll just keep playing our favorite jazz tunes. Check out our music section to hear what ditty’s we’ve created. Oh, and don’t forget to at least pay a short visit to our rather cool online photo book. Enjoy!
Interactive Flash Examples (and a Video)
Here are some samples of Flash work we have created for clients that are used either as online educational materials or in museums as displays.
Everybody starts somewhere. Well, here are our first website designs from the early and mid-2000’s. Both of these sites were designed in Flash and served us well for many years. We present them here as archived museum pieces. Someday, when Flash goes the way of the 8-track these will fade to a distant memory – maybe for the better. Ha. Enjoy them now while you can.
