So, I thought I’d be putting H15 through it’s passes a little too look at performance improvements … In my experience, reusing “old” workflows – that have proven to be able to create great results many times over – often yields fun surprises, so I went back to the old POP-Solver (NonDOPs) and had a play.
WOW!!!! I stopped at 4.24BILLION particles taking around 5gb RAM!!! Coulda done a multitude of that on my laptop easily) Nice one SideFX! Read more →
The tax agent office “Steuerberater-Untermain” needed a couple portraits of their team to showcase on their new webpage. A quick trip to the office with a couple builder spotlights was the most convenient and budget friendly option for the client. No studio portraits but decent results for what we had. Great experience and good fun shooting.
A local politician needed a micro site fro the coming elections. Not having on much else, I took an existing CI and incorporated it into a webpresentation … quick n easy
An old friend was in desperate need to brand his new Tattoo Shop shortly before opening the doors officially. He had a name and basic idea of looks for his business card so this was mainly pixelpushing and filling a facebook template I was given. Always glad to help out a mate!Read more →
Commercial for brand developing company Vanilla Horizon. Focus of this tvc lies on the companies ability to improve clients’ business performances throughout branding. Logo and company name were integral in the following story development: Read more →
Andy needed a fitting pic for his new record also to be used for his social media presence … had a hard time getting him to the beach that early in the morning … the grumpy looks suits him well though
Australian Surf Foundation and Bondi’s Sahnia’s (a host for a few good nights all through summer 08/09) threw a beneficial art exhibition and live music gig to help fight world’s killer number one – malaria.
Also on board: one of my two most favorite Bondi local bands – KINGTIDE.
So when they were asking if I could take some shots of the night I thought “Sure – always up for some voluntary work – especially for a good cause” … and “surfing” is one of ’em :P.
Awesome gig and a great crowd.
Making her way into running her own business as masseuse, Kobie was in need of a Logo, Business cards and so forth. She came to me with an idea for a logo that I then cleaned up, optimized and integrated into a CI. Knowing and appreciating her skills made it easy to come up with something representative. You should give her a call and get yourself a treat. She mostly operates in Bondi, Sydney.
Living in Australia pretty much left me without much desire to travel to tropical destinations, pristine beaches and so forth. However when I got a call to get flown out to Vanuatu for a couple of gigs including shooting for Island Time MagazineRead more →
Quick one for Sydney’s Ryan’s bar … Logo animation to be shown between other content running on several flat screens throughout the bar … nothing fancy and low budget, fun little project nonetheless 🙂
Being happy with my other design a couple months earlier, Toyota came back for more when they needed another template for their launch of the brand new Land Cruiser 200. Again focus was set on a simple yet efficient design template to present a lot of data rather than the actual car design itsself.
On this one I only helped art direct and design some stage designs that were then manufactured elsewhere. Took only a couple hours but with a great team and actually getting designs made into real stage props rather than just existing in a digital world made it a lot of fun and memorable
For this years Franchize Awards we decided to go with a nature theme, with the panels for the projection areas spinning and leaving water movement behind. Fun gig.
Before New Zealand’s national rugby team the mighty All Blacks headed to Paris for the 2007 Rugby World Cup, major sponsor Adidas threw a show including a life gig of OpShop (New Zealand Music Award Winners). Gear for the world cup in France was given away including two custom Adidas-AllBlacks guitars manufactured by Fender.
To promote both the All Blacks and Adidas we produced a video of said event to be shown in Adidas stores across the contry. My job was to take the raw footage, convert it, create a story out of it and cut it all together timed by the life performed song of OpShop. After that (being new to the country myself) I finally knew who they were. Good luck boys!!!
Whilst in NZ Porsche GT3 Racing knocked on the door asking for a concept and delivery to promote their racing circle in showrooms of their car dealers. We used available material and setup info stands with a video cut of races running in a loop. Back in the days all still standard def …
Speaking of jumping in at the deep end … first gig fresh outta uni … vaguest brief … using Watchout for the first time, BUT I DO love my challenges. Luckily I found out New Zealand’s Prime Minister Helen Clarke was to speak in front of my graphics only when I got to the event at the Auckland Hilton :P.
Toyota NZ summoned all of their national car dealers to their annual awards event and needed a presentation template for that. I ended up designing a New Zealand themed template that would not overwhelm the main focus – the content. Above only represents the empty template for obvious reasons. A job done in a couple hours including all meetings.
As Hannibal says, I like it when a plan comes together …
Looking forward to start working in Auckland just in time for the snowboarding season to kick off, I decided to spend a couple hours to design and create a board mockup I would get custom made. Thematically the horns of the skull resembles the Auckland Sky Tower. The design recently drew some attention to a German snowboard company and you might see it on the slopes soon ridden by more than just me.
SAE / Middlesex needed a represntative guest invite for the final presentations of the year’s bachelor projects … they came to me asking if I could help. Not my best work, but I guess ok whilst trying to finalize my own final research and paper …
Had a couple hours to spend in the office while waiting for sims and was dreaming of the coming snowboard trip to the Southern Alps in NZ. Why not use a DEM from NASA and create my vision in 3D?!? Done.
Guess having 24cores leaves some room for a quick timelpase too :P.
Shane lives, loves and breathes in Bondi. He is one of the most positive and fun to be around guys I know, also he is a plumber with his own company called rubber duck plumbing and was in need of an appropriately themed CMS … go check him out if ya need help – he’ll make ur day!!
Daniel Völker Photography wanted a web presentation to showcase his work. The brief was to have his work sit in a subtle 3 dimensional space where that didn’t overpower teh main content – his work. Also possibly disabling viewers to download his art without prior consense was a priority. The solution was a flash based template with mouse as well as keboard navigation. A glass frame with a lense reflection was to hover in a darkroom (referencing photography) that would spin to reveal each new art work. To emphasize on the actual artwork said space was to be minimal in color to contrast the colorfull atwork. Press play above for a preview.
