g-Blu Design | Hallowell, Maine
a.k.a. gipsyBlue, a.k.a., gitanoBlue

Spending our days making beautiful things…it doesn’t get any better. 

g-Blu began designing web sites as gipsyBlue, back in the early part of this new century. We are a small company founded on the belief that a handful of talented people can design wonders with cutting edge web technologies. Since our launch we have found a demand for beauty from our clients and they are right. The only way to stand out on the web is by distinctive design.

Our belief is that the world needs more beauty and we settle for nothing less with our web design work. Our strength lies in using our real world art talents in conjunction with our knowledge of the ever-evolving web technologies to create sites of function and beauty. g-blu designs are built from the code up. As a real world painting needs to be crafted on good canvas with top quality pigments and mediums, a beautiful web site needs to be built on a foundation of solid code.

We are located in Hallowell, Maine but with the wonders of the internet age our clients are as far afield as Seattle, Washington and Houston, Texas.

Chris Cart the founder and owner is also and primarily a fine artist.  He divides his time between the easel and interesting design projects.

byte the muse


Do you live in central Maine? Near Hallowell, Augusta, Gardiner?  And do you mess around with Adobe software, either professionally or for fun?

I run the Byte the Muse Adobe User group.  We meet every second Monday throughout the year.  We are mostly a group of artists and designers and photographers.  The meetings are fun; we trade tips and Adobe sponsors us with goodies to give away.

We usually meet the second Mondays of the month at 7 pm  at 160 Water Street, Hallowell, Maine.  Check out the current schedule on the site.  And you can sign up to be notified about meetings via email as well.
