BRANDING Asheville Business

Business Card Design for Asheville Firm

Asheville Business Card Design by IrishGuy Graphic Design

The Fastfwd Website Hosting Business Card design worked so well. The print job was perfect (and very cheap). The front of the business card is covered with a UV coat. The UV coat adds a layer of shine. The UV coat also saturates the colors. In the case of the Asheville Fastfwd Business Card design – the bold red to black design bars really popped!

Graphic Design by Gary Crossey aka IrishGuy. Business card design for Fastfwd Asheville.

The great thing about my design. I create all of it. The patterns I use I either photograph or draw. I am not online searching for the images I need to make my point of view. I control my design and development (unless its collaborative – even then with strong design options).

The first design option I have as a graphic designer. Create your own. With the Fastfwd business card design. I wanted the visual to be something grounding but with motion.

Weeks before I had photographed the Belfast Airport. The outer walls have these amazing piped walls. The grooves and highlights provided me with the motion. Including an element from home provided the grounding.

While most of Belfast Airport exterior photography does not include the wall fasting. I chose to include the fasting on the business card. The knot was the active working part of the walk – without the knots are work – the wall will blow away. The knots were the design and tech crew at Fastfwd.

The front of the business card design was the company overview. The back of the Fastfwd Business Card is a micro view of the personal contact information.

The back of the business card is the same image zoomed into a section of the photograph. The crop was tight to create the sense of self. One person. Following with heavy white type – I added the contact information.  With phone contact on the left. And online contact on the right. The contrast between red, black and heavy white was perfect for the cheap print job.  I am a firm believer, if you use cheap printing – do make it difficult.

The Asheville Fastfwd Business Card Design follows all the basic rules of graphic design. And, printed perfectly for less than $0.001 each! Now that is good graphic design.

NOTE: Fastfwd Media Design is now Fastfwd Online Services.

WEBSITE DESIGN Fastfwd Media

Web Design Sample Hosting Firm

Website Design

Website Design

All success sites begin with a mock-up.

For Fastfwd, the mock was clean and precise. With content in five central sections – and each chapter assigned a color code.

The website visitor could also access website content by click on 1 of 3 menu drawers.

  • Sections – with labels and color code.
  • News
  • Quick links – most recent content.

The Fastfwd prototype built with ActionScript. While the website framework is clean, open, and neat. The white background is serving as an interactive stage where the viewer can interact and watch content unfold.

Planning Website Content

Most businesses fail to spend enough time on considering how their site content is to present. For most websites, it seems sufficient to toss the content simply at the screen and run away.

Personally, I do not like that method of managing website content.

WEB DESIGN: Flash Navigation

Website Design styles are similar to an old pair of pants. Once, those pants were new. They were the pants wore on special occasions. The pants quickly start to look old and dated. But, a one-point-in-time those were the best pants!
