New layout and logo for 2014

You may have noticed the Creep Machine has been redesigned. The website is now easier to navigate (hopefully), is responsive so that you can enjoy on it your smartphones, and continues our tradition of focusing on the artwork that inspires us. We hope this new layout aids in your viewing pleasure, and most importantly exposes you to some new art and artists.

First, we have a new custom-made logo by the typographic mastermind Chris Parks from Pale Horse Design. Chris was amazing to work with and exceeded my expectations of what the Creep Machine logo would look like. Since the beginning of the site back in 2007, I have relied on free fonts to create the logo for the site, and while some of them looked pretty good they were in no way unique or truly represented what this site aims to be. This new logo finally does this. You can now see it on all of the various social media outlets for the Creep Machine, and we will also have this logo available on apparel in the near future.

The other major graphics change is the background image. Previously we used damask patterns offered on free stock sites, or canvas textures we photographed. It was time for something unique. Joshua Harker created a pattern that fits the site perfectly and shows off that amazing style he is known for. Again, this exceeded my expectations and I hope you enjoy staring at it as much as I do. Love the ‘CM’ he was able to fit into the design.

If you have been following us on Facebook, Twitter, or the new Instagram profile, you might have seen a post talking about a magazine from the Creep Machine. This was a goal of mine years ago and I am now working on the first edition. I will have some more details later, in the meantime please enjoy the new site, share it with your friends, and check us out on one of the many social media profiles you can find us on.
