it comes to web design, the key word is design!
All the bells and whistles in the world won't save a poorly
designed site. It takes innovative, intelligent design to

graphics, why not your website? When you're ready to make

||Tuskegee Top Gun
James H. Harvey, III was an original Tuskegee Airman who flew P-51 Mustangs
with the 332nd Fighter Group during WWII. He then went on to fly F-86's and other
jets during the Korean Conflict. In 1949 he was one of three Primary Members of the
332nd Fighter Group Weapons Team that competed in the "First Ever" USAF Weapons Meet
at Las Vegas Air Force Base. They won that event becoming the "First Top Guns."
This website is an important educational resource detailing the history of the
Tuskegee Airmen, as well as providing the only place to purchase one-of-a-kind
|War Eagles Air Museum
This truly outstanding air museum in Santa Teresa, NM offers one of the finest
WWII and Korean Conflict era warbird collections in the country. After visiting them
in October of 2000, we offered to donate our services to them in developing
what we feel is one of the finest aviation websites in the world!
For this site we developed a rather extensive "backend" which allows the museum staff
to update their exhibits and manage the guestbook and links pages without
our help. We are also in the process of developing a custom Photo Search function
that will allow scale modellers, researchers and general aviation enthusiasts
to find specific photos of aircraft, automobiles, motorcycles, etc.
||Eighth Air Force Historical Society, Colorado Chapter

all members of the Eighth Air Force made toward preserving the precious freedom the United States
and the free world enjoy today.

|Thomas Ravin, M.D.
This warm and inviting medical clinic website was carefully developed for
Thomas Ravin, M.D. and his Denver based Prolotherapy Clinic. Dr. Ravin first approached
Art Works Studio to produce the dynamic cover art for his upcoming medical
textbook Principles of Prolotherapy, the first major textbook on prolotherapy,
published in 2008. Tom contacted us after first being introduced to our
print work featured in the "Photoshop Studio Secrets, 3rd Edition" computer graphics textbook.
As fortune would have it, on top of producing both Tom's original book cover and website
for his medical practice, Jones worked to instruct Dr. Ravin on a weekly basis for over three
year while training him from the ground up to master the graphic skills necessary to produce
his own medical, "cut-away" illustrations for his book. Learning to become not just
proficient, but highly skilled in multiple advanced design and 3-D graphics software
programs to produce top level medical illustration was a challenge that Tom took on
with a passion. Through his extraordinary focus and
discipline, Dr. Ravin produced over 100 stunning original
anatomical illustrations now featured throughout his new critically acclaimed textbook.
We have nothing but the utmost respect for this fine leading physician, and now brilliant
computer artist. We salute you Dr. Tom!
