The cans we designed for Pearmund Cellars are available on July 1st. See below for more information.

CAN YOU BELIEVE IT?!

WE HAVE WINE IN CANS!

CLEARLY is the choice when a glass isn't enough, or a bottle is too much. Each CLEARLY Can holds 8.5 ounces, and is mobile. Great for the beach, pool, ball game, PTA meeting, you name it...we won't judge.

We are the first winery in the world to have wine in clear cans. It's not plastic, but a polymer that acts like an oxygen 'sponge', maintaining shelf life and stability of the product for months. The packaging and can is 100% recyclable and 100% made in America.

Cans are available in White, Sangria and Rosé. Available to purchase at the winery starting July 1st.

We just revamped the Affordable Cleaning Servicess LLC website Affordablecleaningnova.com The goal was to create a clean and easy-to-use site that is mobile-friendly and highlights the end results of their service more than the same old cleaning products other cleaning sites use as their main imagery.

If you are in the Northern Virginia area and are looking for a cleaning service that values its clientele either residential or corporate/office cleaning look no further.

Presented at MVES career day to all the 3-5 graders and was a hit with explaining marketing and design. I had them design a logo of whatever they wanted and had a name that logo quiz. All was going well until the MedVac helicopter showed up. How can you compete, lol? ... See MoreSee Less

You have got to love old war posters. Here are two from one of my local sandwich shops called the Covert Cafe www.covertcafe.com. Highly recommend them! They also have a great spy/WWII theme to the place. Pecan bat, San Pelegrín , Cuban sandwich and some chicken poblano soup. ... See MoreSee Less

Orcada Media Group would like to present Vint Hill Craft Winery's new website www.vinthillcraftwinery.com. This is one of our latest projects.

Vint Hill's winery is located in ‘The Listening Post’ (aka Monitoring Station #1) on one of the nation’s most covert Army bases. Their building originally served as a dairy barn for more than 100 years before becoming a secret Army post. Fascinating history and fabulous wines are served there. With a 100-barrel capacity, they boast small quantities of a wide variety of varietals – there is something new to taste on every return trip! Located in Warrenton, VA. Vint Hill labels are based off the Pin Up girl which originated during WWII with the nose art that was displayed on American Bombers and Fighters.
