Since then we have been involved in projects from underwater photography websites, to custom programmed educational programs.

We try to keep it simple and clean looking. Let the subject speak for itself.


The Design Team

  • Joel Cotton


    Joel was inspired at an early age when his father, Jack, a talented watercolor artist took him to the valleys and mountains near their New Mexico home to learn to draw and paint. Joel's love of nature led to a stint as a forester in the Southwest. All the while, he was painting and photographing the subtle beautry of the area. His passion for sharing the beauty found in nature led to a career in teaching at Colorado Mountain college where he taught computer, photo an design classes. He founded Meadow Hawk Digital Design as a web deign company originally. Meadow Hawk Digital Design has branched to computer programming, photography, as well as web design. The last few years, Joel has expanded and improved his underwater photography studio, Spending the winter months in Cozumel allows him to dedicate himself to his new craft. Joel has over 500 dives in remote locations around the world. Joel and his wife Marcia recently returned from a photo trip to Bhutan and Nepal where they trekked to some of the highest and most remote spots in the world, with the goal of recording the natural beautry and the local people and cultures. In addition, Joel has come up with some new inventions to make camping outside more enjoyable. The Road Shower is a rack mounted solar shower that fits on the top of your car and heats water while you are traveling. The patent was issued in June 2012. Joel continues to seek other patents to make our camping lives easier. He would be happy to provide some consulting on obtaining your own patent without and attorney.
