ERA404 loves work
Luke Simon hired ERA404 to design the logo for Maize, a Farm-to-Table Eatery based in Ida, Michigan. His concept was to create a brand evocative of the old-fashioned values of wholesome food from honest work and a labor of love.
The final design includes an intricate woodcut style design that will be etched into signage and painted on packaging to reinforce this feel.
Deb Deffaa of Trident Network hired ERA404 to create the strategy, design, encode, and development for their remote social network, Seamate. Seamate includes eight main sections, including: Social, Messages, Videos, Music, Pictures, Games, Cards and an online ecommerce system. ERA404’s strategy and design spanned all eight sections while the encode and development focused on Seamate Social.
Trident Network projects a worldwide product launch in late 2014.
U.S.S. Target – Holiday Pop-up Store
Rand Burrus, of RANDM, approached ERA404 in 2001 to design his vision for the Target Holiday Boat. ERA404 worked on all onsite design work for the USS Target and its adjoining three tents. The event included a display of 92 of the retailer’s hottest products for the holiday season, a redemption center, Internet ordering stations, gift-wrapping, refreshments, and Santa Claus himself, decked head to toe in a Target-dotted suit.
“It is a great benefit to be able to show a client exactly what you have in mind for a project. With my latest project, the comment I heard most often was…‘It looks exactly like the renderings. This is unbelievable!”
Rand Burrus, President
Crypto Mining Software
Our client has been designing and building heat exchangers for over 60 years. This experience uniquely positioned them to provide a solution for the rest of the immersion systems industry, including the fabrication of temperature-controlled immersion tanks for cryptocurrency mining.
With the creation of these systems, they hired ERA404 to design and develop their immersion software, which monitors and reports diagnostics from the hardware that regulates the fluid temperature and the ASIC miners, themselves. Users can communicate directly with all levels of the mining systems to adjust hashrates, control power, and fine-tune operations from the entire site down to a single chip.
The software is built on VueJS and Bootstrap 5 with PHP and MySQL running under the hood.

Photographer Jeanne Moutoussamy-Ashe has produced a wide-ranging body of work examining the ramifications of the historical outcomes of slavery, the expressly intimate moments of a family in the face of personal tragedy and a broad engagement of the history of photography.
ERA404 worked with Jeanne to create an online archive of her work, including hundreds of high-resolution photographs and an anthology of content spanning the length of her career. Visitors are invited to explore the world through her lens and even inquire to purchase fine art prints.
In the past, ERA404 has worked with Ms. Ashe on the design and development of ArthurAshe.org and the identity and branding for Arthur Ashe Learning Center.
