Future Defunct: my Kenzo Minami homage/rip-off

In 2003 (like most graphic design nerds) I became obsessed with Kenzo Minami’s work. His gratuitously excessive vector designs are totally my bag. So I wanted to see what I could come up with while attempting his style of piece. I remember it took a good while to complete, but it was still a lot of fun. It was all created in Flash, because I really wanted to animate it eventually. There is just never enough time.

Check out his site, and be sure to keep a towel close by to wipe up your drool.

S6 Insignia and remorse for Export Controlled portfolio pieces

So for the past 2 years I have worked as a Multimedia Specialist for RTI International in the Digital Solutions department. The job was really spectacular, I worked with a super-talented team of folks. In those 2 years, we worked on basically 3 projects (to give you an idea of the scope of the projects).

Some of my tasks included Graphic User Interface design, simulating software apps and operating systems with Flash, prepping Flash components to function inside the 3D simulation environment, creating 2D mock-ups of potential tools within the sim, as well as tons of various graphic design tasks.

The down side: all of that work was very protected government property. So don’t expect to ever see anything here. Just trust me it was the best professional work of my life, and you DEFINITELY want to hire me full-time based upon that. =)

So anyway, here is one of only a couple of things that I can show off (and even this may bring about a C&D letter). This is a vector drawing of the S6 Signal Corps insignia created for RTI International.

S6 Signal Corps insignia for RTI International

This was created in Flash, because it is to later be used in a Flash environment. For extra fun (and because I desire your pity), below are the two source images that I used to make my version.

Examples of poor source material for creating my S6 insignia

I know it seems all “meta” and stuff, but this was a printed banner used to sell panoramic printed banners at Mustang car show. The client needed a sample banner that also acted as a sign used at the car shows.

Banner/splash image for Signal Festival 2006

Web banner/splash image used for Signal Festival 2006

This was the base graphic that I used for most of my designs for Signal Festival 2006. Later on I’ll post some of those projects on the site. Due to time constraints for the festival that year, those designs are all pretty much just spin-offs of this design.
