Darren approached 4CDesignWorks for social networking and marketing help.  He needed a brand to communicate his goal of swimming the “Ocean’s Seven” and raising money for the “Forever Fund,” a charitable foundation that he and a friend established. His logo was designed with the influence of water and waves, to reference his intense passion for swimming.  Once his logo was created, a stationary system was devised along with a website with online donation capabilities.

After becoming the first American to complete the “Ocean’s Seven” (and the only athlete to complete the swims 7/7 on the first try), Darren came to 4CDesignWorks again to tailor his brand toward his passion for professional speaking. With requests coming from local non-profits and various companies within the financial industry, he wanted a simple site that would communicate his endurance athletic accomplishments, provide a platform for his established blog, link to his social sites, and highlight that he is available for booking. To accommodate the booking aspect of the site, a request/schedule form tool replaced a contact form and was made available via call-outs throughout the site. A more visual photo driven approach was also utilized to put the emphasis on Darren, his personal and motivational speaking capabilities, as well show his athletic achievements.
