Since I was starting to get comments about how www.erotisphere.com looked like a realtor website, I decided it was time for a change. Two good friends of mine worked with me to create a new logo, an illustration for the homepage, and icons for the business categories.
Marcella Joshlin volunteered to design the logo. I gave her many conflicting, cryptic instructions, and she came up with some awesome designs. The ideas culminated in our new company logo, which is now proudly displayed in the banner at the top of the site.

Stefan Saito was responsible for the new illustration on the homepage. I gave him a crudely drawn sketch from my notebook, and he turned it into a masterpiece. I then turned his image into a clickable map, so it can be used to quickly navigate to different categories in the Adult Business Directory.

Stefan then designed icons to represent the various business categories. Each business listing is now tagged with an image so that users can quickly identify what kind of business they're looking at.
I had a great time working with these two incredibly talented artists. They both did a phenomenal job. I believe they're available for hire as independent contractors, and I would highly recommend their services to anyone. To reach them, check out marcellajoshlin.com and stefansaito.com.
Also, here's a cool video by Stefan:
