Asheville Awards Presentation Graphics created by Gary Crossey of IrishGuy Graphic Design.

The journey with the Asheville Chamber of Commerce and the MEA began by setting up the Manufactured in Western North Carolina – where creativity and technology meet Innovative Solutions stamp. The graphic combines the Asheville Chamber of Commerce mountain icon with technology pixels. Working on the Branding team for Manufactured in Western North Carolina was an impressive project – bringing pixels to the Western North Carolina mountains.

We created all aspects of the graphics for the Asheville Chamber of Commerce award presentation.

Background Artwork

Beginning with my photography – I select a series of business buildings for the background artwork. Using Photoshop, I removed undesired elements from the photography – cleaning windows, deleting objects from the windows, mirroring the image, and coloring to red. The live version of the background artwork had graphical animations that ran the length of the building to the center.

TRADESHOW GRAPHICS – American Intercontinental University

There were so many parts to American Intercontinental University tradeshow.

The trade show booth had the five large posters installed toward the back of the booth with the multimedia presentation played in a loop.

Tradeshow Posters

There is nothing more fun than printing in large format. The American Intercontinental University Trade Show Posters were over 5 feet tall and mounted on to a firm foam cord. The five-panel poster installation looked awesome.

I began the project by creating the orange 3D circle. The circles were created with thin layers of digital glass. I was surprised that the tube like quality of the orange circle graphics actually printed so well – the sense of 3D really did pop.

The silver texture in 2000 was a digital challenge – which I was certainly up for. The silver texture was created with fine gradients, noise, and blur effects. The printer did an awesome job to preserve all of the reflective textures and surfaces – ONLY WORK WITH A TRUSTED PRINTER.
