A 20'x20 exhibit proposal I helped ExhibitQuest with is up for an Exhibitor Magazine Award! As a team we specialize in the "Portable Modular" area of exhibits so it its nice to be recognized. You can vote for the display here! I also have a step by step how to on my process page of how this display came together here.
After a lot of work and diligence my client boulding blocks has launched a kickstarter campaign ! These extremely unique 3-D brain puzzles are the culmination of years of research and refining. I had lots of fun helping Mark Boulding with the 3-D models for 3-D Printing and prototyping on this project. I also crafted all the animations and videos for the kickstarter site to aid in visualization and explaining process. Good luck boulding blocks!
Check this out! I am helping my friend and client Mark Boulding develop a series of 3-D brain puzzles. Marks vision is to help satisfy the need for tactile and mechanical aptitude while being very entertaining at the same time. This model is available for sale as well. I modeled the 2 individual pieces in 3-D Studio Max 2015 and we had Shapeways print the pieces. It was really fun to make these hollow and remove all the mass we could to make it as inexpensive as possible. It also ended up making them incredibly light. More puzzles to come so I will keep you posted!
Here is a small animation I did to help my neighborhood raise funds for these new sign they want to put in around the neighborhood. Animation is HD and took only about 6 hours to render.
As part of their presentation, Anderson Hallas Architects needed a short animation that showcased a new entry design for the McNichols Civic Center Building in downtown Denver . With only 1 day to craft the animation I worked closely with David Miller from AHA to develop a sequence that showed the current entry being removed and the new entry falling in from above piece by piece. It was important to AHA that the animation communicated the path of people so an arrow was chosen to float up the stairs and then through the building painted with an X-Ray texture. The building model was supplied by AHA as were the two different entry ways and this helped speed up the process of key framing all the different pieces into place. The animation was done in 3-D Studio Max and video compositing done Adobe Premier Pro.
This 20'x40' island exhibit presentation for ExhibitQuest is a typical example of the core components assembled in a typical proposal. Consisting of both 2-D and 3-D elements, these presentations are meant to communicate the complete story within a short time frame. ExhibitQuest likes to print out large flat boards the client can actually hold for quick reference and to follow that up with a 3-D fly-through animation to complete the explanation process.
When constructing an animation I look to cover the entire exhibit without going to fast or too slow. For this fly-through I chose to start with a wide shot and then zoom into and highlight a kiosk while returning back to the wide shot to complete the segment.
And below here are the actual photos of the exhibit's first show in Florida!
