Designed the background, header and avatar for, the pure source of HipHop, Old School & Classic HipHop fashion.  Their urban hip hop & streetwear brands include: Wu-Wear, Pyromaniac, Mahagony, The Joker Brand and Playerz69 (

The avatar was their logo but overlay with a white border and high-res to bring out the logo more when viewing their tweets and on mobile devices:

The header used was the flying Shaolin monk from their website banner – I wanted to retain something from their website that was recognizable and the image was beautifully grainy and raw, something like you’d see out of a Saturday afternoon kung-fu flick.  It was a great contrast against the background which consisted of clear vector logos (more on that later).

The header was sized so that when the avatar sits on the image on the main page (, it doesn’t cover up the flying Shaolin monk.  I also made the header image a bit darker to bring out the white lettered information better.

The client wanted all the brand logos that they sell to be patterned across the background, so I converted and built each logo into vectors that can be easily sized and displayed much more clearly.  I created a pattern with the logos and lightened them so that they are not too bright and more subtly blend into the background.  The backdrop used a dark wood theme that was used on their old Twitter design, gave it an overall kung-fu dojo feel.  It was also sized so that those with larger monitors can see more of it.  Basic info like the URL and brands they sell are on the side:
