Detail of illustration

I have just completed the illustrated map for the 2014 Yacht and Brokerage Show in Miami Beach. This is my fourth year creating the map. Last year I introduced 3D design to the map and this year I changed the color, lighting and made the treatment a little more fun. Below you can see previous years maps for comparison.

I also made some minor revisions to what used to be called the Parking Map and is now called the Shuttle Bus Pick Up and Drop Off Locations Map. You will find it helpful when choosing where to park and which bus to catch to reach your destination.

Also among the body of work was designs for the “You Are Here” signs. The map had to be rendered again from North and South and all keying had to be redone to reflect each view. This would have been virtually impossible using my old hand drawn technique.

The signs are about eight feet tall. They asked that I use a red background to match the sponsor’s logo.

Lastly I want to mention that I did the illustration that will be on the cover of the boat show program. I’m very proud to be showing some artwork at a boat show other than a map and I am hopeful that this will lead to more new and diverse projects. This illustration is also available as a high quality art print (with framing optional) from my Society 6 page.

Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show Maps 2013

2013 Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show Map

I’m pleased to unveil the 2013 Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show Map. It’s very exciting to have a new, more realistic version of the map. Of course working on one of the world’s largest boat shows and working on a project so close to home are also exciting. The map encompasses an area from Las Olas Marina south to the south edge of Bahia Mar Yachting Center. Buildings on the map include The Bahia Mar DoubleTree by Hilton, Illini Condominiums, Courtyard Marriot, The Venetian, Leisure Beach Condominiums, Jackson Tower Condominiums, Las Olas Beach Club and more. These landmarks should be of great help to visitors to the show in orienting themselves within their surroundings. The original, vector based map was also revised and is used in the free boat show phone app.

The map will appear in the boat show program available for free at the show and on signage throughout the show. It will also appear in the Fort Lauderdale Sun Sentinel.
If you are a magazine publisher and would like to print the map in your publication or if you are an exhibitor in the show and would like a map highlighting your exhibit area for your marketing purposes please contact me for a quote.

Among the other updates this year I redesigned the six double page spread detail illustrations of the major tents like the one below.

The Greater Ft. Lauderdale/Broward County Convention Center has also been upgraded this year with a new look and feel using a 3d computer model. This opens up more options for future maps and applications.

Palm Beach International Boat Show Map 2013

John Potter

I’m very excited to unveil the 2013 Palm Beach International Boat Show Map. This is just the latest of my 3D rendered maps, but in many ways the most ambitious and the first I have made a time lapse video from. The map encompasses an area known as the Palm Beach Waterfront and City Commons as well as extending south along Flagler Drive. This map includes a lot of buildings compared to most of my boat show maps. Buildings include Meyer Amphitheater, the PNC Bank Building, Esplanade Grande, The Strand, McKeen Towers, Trump Plaza and more. These landmarks should be of great help to visitors to the show in orienting themselves within their surroundings. The original, vector based map was also revised and is used in the free boat show phone app.

The map will appear in the boat show program available for free at the show and on signage throughout the show. It will also appear in the Palm Beach Boat Show special section of The Palm Beach Post and Palm Beach Daily News’ annual broadsheet section about the show. If you didn’t see my previous post showing the map/model from different angles please have a look.

The 3D mapping technique has required me to learn several new software packages. The work itself comes first and this is the first time I felt absolutely positive that I was proficient enough with the new software that making a time lapse video couldn’t pose any undue distraction. The project was large and lengthy as you can see in the video, but I left out large chunks of time from the video because even at a vastly increased frame rate it becomes a little tedious. You may notice that the final map extends further south and the docks extend further out than in the video. That was the result of late stage revisions. I skipped recording the setup of the labeling, keying and page layout as well.
I hope you enjoy the video and the final map.

2013 Yacht and Brokerage Show in Miami Beach Map Fly Through

Just a little in-progress update on the 2013 Yacht and Brokerage Show in Miami Beach map…

Show Management and I have decided to upgrade the 2013 map and use a 3D model built in SketchUp much like we had success with on the St. Petersburg Power & Sailboat Show map. As in that case, the model can be rendered from different angles making a new look from year to year much easier and creating options for other supporting material as well. This map has been a challenge to me and my computer’s capabilities. I still have some revisions pending, but I made a fun fly-through video of the project as it is now that is only a little over a minute long and I’m posting some renderings of other angles of the map here as well. Enjoy.
