Mike Holmes – Roofing Images, (Manual)

Mike Holmes – Roofing Images, (Manual), 2012

Newly added To Portfolio, Mike Holmes – Roofing, Manual, Created for The Holmes Group. Technical Illustration. Architectural Construction.

Below I’ve posted a small number of illustration I did for an illustrated home manual (I’ll post some more in the future) These Illustrations were to be kept simple, on a white background and the text kept as legible as possible as the images were going to be used in many different formats. Quite often the images were to be placed fairly small so it was imperative that the outlines and text maintain their qualities so the viewer wouldn’t lose any information.

Above is an illustration showing roof vents and the purpose they serve. Roof vents are used to circulate air, keep the temperature in your attic mildly cool, protecting the climate inside your house and preventing ice dams from forming on top of your roof.

Speaking of which, the ice Damming Illustrations showing both ventilated and non-ventilated were featured in the February 2013 On The Go magazine which accompanied the Mike Holmes article titled “Ice Dams & Your Roof”

Below is an excerpt from the article on Ice Damming –

“Ice dams prevent water from flowing down. It will eventually back up, finding its way under the shingles and into the attic. A thick ice dam can damage roof flashing, fascia and soffits. It can even shift vent stacks and create gaps that allow water into your roof. that water can flow into your exterior wall cavities and end up in your basement. Or it can leak into your home and cause damage to walls, ceiling and insulation”

CVS Trade Show Booth

CVS Tradeshow Booth I created back in 2010

Newly added To Portfolio, CVS Trade Show Booth, Created for Sheridan College & Creative Visual Solutions.  Technical Illustration. Architectural Construction.  3D.

 

Technical Illustrator

The idea behind this project was to design a booth that was unique enough to stand out – but also one that could fit within the strict dimensions and guidelines of most trade show events whilst still being modular.

The size dimensions of the booth needed to fit within a 10x20ft space with about an 8ft ceiling, which is pretty common for most trade show spaces. In the original design, the roof stretched overtop of the monitor and floated just inches above the floor.  As the concept grew, changes needed to be made.  More thought was put into the construction and stability benefiting the overall design.

Technical IllustratorThe earlier design to the left came from a side profile sketch that didn’t include the front glass barrier and brochure stand.  As other elements were added the design became less organic and front heavy like it would topple over.  Changes were made to make it more open and inviting to guest.  In the final design the Monitor on the right was given some walls to keep sound isolated to guest seated at the small box seats which also doubled as storage bins.

VibroAcoustics – Vibration Isolation and Restraint Systems

Completed some work for VibroAcoustics a couple months ago and they just released their vibration isolation and restraint systems brouchure

Newly added To Portfolio, Vibration Isolation and Restraint Systems. Created for VibroAcoustics.  Technical Illustration. Architectural Construction.  3D.

I was contacted by VibroAcoustics last November to complete 12 Illustrations that showcased their various vibration isolation and restraint systems.  I started with their base mounted products first.  The idea was to keep it simple and in a greyish tone so that color could be used to highlight the various components of the system used to support and minimize sound in HVAC systems.

 

 

 

 

More about the company:

“Drawing on over 50 years of experience, Vibro-Acoustics focuses chiefly on providing the application engineering expertise and product solutions needed to achieve the desired sound criteria. This requires our Application Engineers to address both structure-borne and airborne noise.

“Vibro-Acoustics focuses chiefly on providing the application engineering expertise and product solutions needed to achieve the desired sound criteria. This requires our Application Engineers to address both structure-borne and airborne noise”.

Vibro-Acoustics writes project-specific specifications for vibration isolation, seismic/ wind restraint and airborne noise to save engineers time when reviewing submittals and to help avoid vibration problems post-design. Vibro-Acoustics also serves as a single point of contact for meeting sound criteria and for ensuring solutions are code compliant”.
