Go Media worked with Synergy Physical Therapy to plan, execute, and deliver a fully responsive website design. The website design focused on showcasing the services offered as well as encouraged visitors to check out their Wellness Blog. The minimalist design allows visitors to easy find the resources they are looking for when searching for a physical therapy provider as well as provides them with patient information and tips to staying healthy. We kept the look-and-feel clean to make navigating the site a breeze. We also kept the look cohesive with their brand image so that patients would immediately recognize Synergy Physical Therapy upon viewing the site.
One area where Go Media really wowed Synergy was with the rotating slider banner on the homepage. With bold text and snappy icons, prospective patients have a fun and eye-catching way to find exactly what they are looking for when they visit the site. By offering navigation in the banner, key pages will receive increased exposure and visitors will more easily find what they are searching for which can decrease your bounce rate and increase your SEO efficacy.

The designers at Go Media are proud to approach each and every project with passion. But we must admit, our ongoing partnership with COSE and specifically, our assistance with the launch of their Warm and Bright campaign, has us feeling all warm and fuzzy inside.
Not only did we have a ball coming up with the festive concepts for COSE, but more importantly, we wholeheartedly support the cause behind the designs. You see, when anyone visits COSE’s Warm and Bright landing page and clicks to share, COSE donates $1 to families in need.
The donations, made in each visitors name, will be made through Dominion EnergyShare, a heating and cooling assistance program that helps families in need. Last year, the program donated $4 million to those suffering financial hardships related to unemployment or family crisis.
What do you say we top it this year?
Head to the Warm & Bright site and COSE will donate $1 in your name!
Some of our customers came to us with a concern. They wanted top notch quality, but simply didn’t have the budget for a fully custom website.
We took their challenge head-on.
Go Media has been creating innovative web solutions for more than a decade. Over the years, we’ve tested a wide variety of web technologies and have curated a selection of reliable and trusted core solutions. What has resulted through our experience is the Go Media Framework – a fully responsive, feature-rich theme that was hand-coded and is lovingly supported by the talented developers here at Go Media. We leverage a powerful, award winning Content Management System (CMS) as the foundation for back end administration.
The Framework allows us to quickly customize and deploy highly functional websites at a fraction of the cost. We’ve integrated eCommerce, tied it to social networks, and used it as a foundation for image galleries. With our custom toolkit and the vast array of plugins and modules available, we can achieve nearly any goals. However, ensuring that any technology we implement have been thoroughly tested for reliability and usability is paramount. As we say: “On the cutting edge without bleeding.”
Not only are our customer’s wallets happy, but they’ve each launched their own unique sites quickly and on their own terms.
Thanks to the users of our first design mockup web application from Go Media Shirt Mockup, we realized that designers were looking for more than just t-shirts. This inspired us to create Mockup Everything.
Mockup Everything is an easy-to-use online platform for applying your designs to a variety of print products, including apparel, devices, business stationary and more!
Graphic artists, can visually prototype their merchandise designs and save jpeg snapshots to share with their clients or marketplace. This is a great way to test a product’s market potential as well as explore how it might look before going through the expensive manufacturing process.
Go Media has always been a strange combination of passions – art and business. So, it was no surprise that when Go Media started we were consistently thinking about the business systems side of being a graphic designer. How do we keep track of our projects? How do we track our time? How do we deliver proofs to our clients? We were anxious to start building these systems for Go Media.
It wasn’t long before we digitally designed the original Prooflab v1. It was a very simple online tool. Users would fill out a form and select proofs. Prooflab would automatically build a web page with our client proofs on it so that we could avoid any mishaps with client’s being unable to open .jpegs in email attachments.
It took us about a year and a half to build Prooflab v2. It was a major leap forward in functionality from Prooflab v1. The basic structure of the site was as follows – both the client and the designers would log-in through the web. Once logged into the system, they would see a projects queue (a list) of all their projects. The list would include things like project number, title, client (or designer), status and deadline. You would click on a project to see the project details. The details of the project included items like: general description, project specs, hours logged, correspondence, proofs and design team. From there, the user could post/review proofs, send an e-mail or edit/request changes to the project.
Finally, on the third go at it – things started to click. Of the utmost importance to the version 3 upgrades was the fundamental structure with which Prooflab handled the organization of the information. Additionally, we were constantly asking ourselves how we could keep the interface as simple and ergonomic as possible. The system had to be so simple and intuitive that a child could use it. And yet, it had to manage very complex projects and piles of information. With this in mind, we tried to build intuitive layers of information; giving the user only what they need at any given moment with a clear path to more information.
Smog Veil Records asked Go Media to create the album art for the special edition Double LP for legendary 80s hardcore punk band The Guns. This is their pièce de résistance; the epic collection of nearly all the band’s recorded material. We kept Vince Rancid’s original illustration from the 80s as the cover and designed the rest of the package, labels, and liner notes.
According to their website, “Scott Eakin and Dave Araca formed the band originally as a 2-piece, later adding to the lineup some amazing rippers in the form of Sean Saley, Bob Ries, and Scott Silverman Though a couple compilation appearances is all they managed back in the day, this release collects those tracks plus all other studio recordings, as well as some choice live cuts. The LP also features Vince Rancid’s original cover art as commissioned by the band in the 80s.”
The band sent us dozens of flyers and old photos. We wanted to capture the essence of what it was like to wreak havoc in the 80s hardcore punk scene. We purposefully kept things black and white aimed to match the photocopied, cut, pasted, and stenciled look.
Since the band has such a rich history and a few of its members have died (RIP Scott and David!), The Guns have taken on many forms. The liner notes tell full story from beginning to end. This is a true taste of Midwestern hardcore punk in the 80s.
Crowell Advertising contacted Go Media to create the next t-shirt design for I Got Brains Fest 2012, a two day art and music celebration in Blacksburg, VA hosted by Flannel Gurl Records! After two years of organizing shows around southwest, VA this was the only way we could think of to say thank you to everyone we have met along the way so far!. They describe themselves as “a symbol of independence, of freedom from control, and of the smoke-free lifestyle we embrace.” We liked the message and were happy to work with them!
OGR is very focused on music, art, and culture. Every month, they feature an artist and make the t-shirt and poster they designed available for purchase. Go Media’s own Jeff Finley was the featured artist for June 2012. You can get the shirt here.
We started by researching other diagrams used to explain these concepts. We took the best of what we found and vetted it against F.I.T.’s particular training philosophies. Next we established a color code to represent effort. Red equaled maximum effort, yellow was minimum effort. Overlapping gradients were used to create the look of a smooth transition combined with segmenting the phases. These diagrams became the backbone of F.I.T.’s marketing materials. Used on both print and web marketing materials, they communicated the sophistication of F.I.T.’s approach to training and physical fitness.
Pete Harrison of the fashion brand Funkrush asked Go Media to do a few designs for him. This was in 2007, and we had been doing a lot of 3D typography design experiments. So we thought it would be fun to try something out for Pete. Most of the work was done in 3DS Max and some post production done in Photoshop.
Jeff Finley’s former band Parachute Journalists (which also starred former Go Media designer Adam Wagner on vocals and guitar) played a show on January 9th in Lakewood, OH. This is the poster for the show. The band played with Lowly the Tree Ghost, Panoramic, and Lost in Society at the 5 O’Clock Lounge.
