I just completed the “You Are Here” sign illustrations for the 2014 Palm Beach International Boat Show. To see more about the map visit my previous post. Be sure to come to the show on March 20-23, 2014. For more show information visit showmanagement.com.
I have some existing illustrations with print rights available for use on your project. Usage rights are negotiable up to and including full and exclusive rights. This artwork is top quality and comparable to previous illustrations I have done for highly successful events and ongoing projects.
Of course I am also available to create one of a kind custom illustrations as well.
I’ve created a few mockups to give you an idea of the possibilities…
It’s once again time for the Palm Beach International Boat Show (March 20-23, 2014) and I have just completed this years map design and illustration. For this years map we changed the angle some and used color to bring emphasis to the boat show and away from the surrounding architecture. I stuck with an elegant palette that suits Palm Beach. I made the time of day in the illustration closer to noon this year rather than having the long, dramatic shadows of last year’s map. I also switched to a sketchier rendering method rather than the more photo-realistic method I used last year.
I want to share a couple of images that show the underlying work involved in the creation of the map. I combine many rendering techniques to achieve the final look. This can require extensive knowledge of multiple software packages. Skillfully and selectively combined, these renderings can create an illustration with quality that far exceeds the sum of its parts.
Maps from previous years…
I want to share some examples of my illustration and map work as it is being used at the 2014 Yacht and Brokerage Show in Miami Beach.
As you see above I illustrated the cover of the boat show program directory. The graphic design work was done by Paul Brown and Steve Sheer of Show Management. You can see a zoomable version of the illustration and order art prints including some nice framed copies here. I also have a posting that goes in to a little bit more detail about this illustration itself if you are interested. I am available to create an illustration like this for your event or whatever you may need it for. Contact me if you would like a custom illustration or are interested in purchasing print or usage rights to an existing illustration.
North Miami Beach has been thoroughly decorated with these pole banners featuring my illustration work. I spotted them almost the minute I arrived on the island on I-195. They look really great and once again the graphic design work was done by Paul Brown and Steve Sheer of Show Management. I have never seen my work reproduced on such a scale and displayed with such prominence before. They look very appropriate for Miami Beach and the colors are nice and bright.
Boat Show Visitors Map
I once again designed the primary visitors map for the show. as you may have already seen. Versions appear in the boat show program directory, on Show Management’s website, MyBoatShow phone app and as you see above in the March issue of Yachts International Magazine.
You Are Here Signs
Here I am standing next to one of the “You Are Here” signs I illustrated and designed for Show Management. They seemed to be working great. I saw lots of people using them and they all walked away looking confident that they knew where they were going.
Bus Routes Map
Used in both the program and on signs, the bus routes map was handy. I personally parked on the beach (timed city parking) near lot P1 and took the purple line bus (you can tell by the 8.5"x11" sheet in the front window) down to the show and back. Look for the bus route signs for pick up and drop off locations.
I hope you enjoy the boat show and have a great weekend!
