The Hole 3D: Furniture Design

Sunday, November 22, 2009 posted by james

While I spent a large amount of my time filling Dane’s Sketchbooks I did also contribute to some of the set design – in particular I designed allt he furniture for the nightmare version Brownstone living room. With all the planes on the set warping as if in a funhouse, the furniture needed to follow suit. Top and bottom are my original drawings for the furniture and in the middle is a photo taken on set.

The Hole Wins at Venice and Toronto Film Festivals

Friday, September 18, 2009 posted by james

Through the end of 2008 and early 2009 I worked on The Hole, providing illustrations for the lead character who takes his sketch books with him everywhere he goes.

The Hole is about a single mom and her two boys moving to a small town where the boys and their neighbour find a hole in the basement which unleashes evil to this world.

Given the current popularity of 3D films I’m excited to share with you that The Hole won best 3D film at the Venice Film Festival.

Salmonbellies Celebrate 125 Years

Tuesday, September 15, 2009 posted by james

It’s been another fun year working with the New Westminster Sr Salmonbellies. This year  was very special since the team was celebrating it’s 125th year and the city of New Westminster has been celebrating it’s 150th! The Salmonbellies made us all proud winning their second straight WLA Championship before losing the Mann Cup in overtime of the 7th game.

Picking up on the celebration the ‘Bellies had a 125th Logo developed, and we ran with it – creating the season poster, programs, and promo materials again. From a design standpoint we worked to elevate the game materials beyond what we adopted in the first year. The programs are more visual and feature up to date photos from recent games or events. Even throughout the season we were still tinkering with the program and finally came to the visual versions seen to the right of the samples below:

We’re looking forward to doing this again next year!

Design: Carbon Fibre FX Business Cards

Business Card Concepts

Initial Business Card Concepts

These are some examples of some concept work I presented to a client. Throughout the design process the idea was to include some graphic references to the carbon fibre and the car body parts that they manufacture such as hoods grills and panels. Above are some of the initial concepts before the logo graphic was defined. You can see the silhouette of the negative space in a hood construction carried the graphic. Below are some of the final concept proofs which include the final logo. Gone are the silhouetted graphics but the angled text layout remain and now the logo itself contains some reference to both the fibres and the speed of the vehicles when they race.
