ARTWORK: Asheville Building

Asheville Flatiron Building

I am a big fan of the Asheville Flatiron building. The buildings placement in downtown Asheville creates a strong presence.

I drew the Asheville Flatiron Building illustration for a retail website. I created the graphic in vector, making the images fully scalable.

PHOTOGRAPHY: Product Photography

Asheville Local Business Photography

For many years Ny Native Ireland was a popular business in downtown Asheville. Over many of those years I got to work on a wide range of projects for the Asheville Business.

Beginning with photographing many of the popular product lines. I went to the store and shoot the images on location. For special, or difficult items to capture, I would take those to my Asheville photo studio.

Here is a small collection of the Asheville store product photography.

Asheville Retail Website Design

Oh, the days of Flash were a fun time for website design. Sure, connection speed was certain. And, smartphones or tablets were a far off idea. What Flash did deliver to the internet user was motion.

Screen Captures of Web Site

As a Website Designer and Developer, working with Flash was fun!
The My Native Ireland website was a project of passion.

I do miss my Curved Scroll Bar - it was quite fancy (even for then). I wrote the ActionScript to create the scrollbar to find the design of this website. The paint brushes I created in Adobe Illustrator.

The entire site had a sense of soft movement - which captured the Asheville store so perfectly.

ADVERTISING Print Ads

Series of Asheville Print Ads

The series of black and white print ads created for My Native Ireland (Asheville). The graphic design of the ads follows the company Branding and borrows graphics from the website.

The client hired us for Product Photography, Copy Writing, Graphic Design, Printing, and Distribution. We photographed the product in the downtown Asheville store.
