“The report is highly interactive. It’s a unique blend of digital media and handcrafted artwork. All graphics were handmade and photographed-not computer generated. This is reflective of our community, a small, progressive city in the Appalachian mountains,” said Stellar Studios owner Bill May. “The site is packed with highly interactive technology that still relies on the reader’s curiosity.”
“Stellar Studios recognizes that this achievement was only possible due to the input and support of Robert White and J.T. McSpadden of Johnson City Power Board Marketing, and artistic and technical contributions of Christie Leach and Alex Logue, Stellar Studios designers,” said May. “There were graphic contributions made by many stakeholders that reflect the true flavor of the community and they are also credited in the report.”
