I know what you did last summer (part 2)

One of the things I designed while working for the IT department, was their website portal. It was just awful (white page with blue hyperlinks) and needed a revamp. I created over a dozen maquettes and one of them was chosen by the employees after two rounds of votes. I was surprised to see that the IT employees had chosen a really dark background since the college identity is dominated by a light color palette, but hey… that’s democracy for ya! I have no clue as to when the page will be implemented within the college website. NOTE: All these designs were created with Adobe Illustrator.

School project S2 – Vector Art : Spitfire

This is our final project for the Adobe Illustrator CS4 class. We have to recreate a photo-realistic object using exclusively illustrator. This WWII Spitfire fighter plane was mostly done with the mesh and gradient tools. The biggest difficulty in this project was the uneven surface of the fuselage and special attention was needed to recreate the light reflections. The airplane canopy including the pilots were also quite a challenge. It took me around 60 hours to create and I am very proud of the result. Click on the image to see close-ups of the design.

School project S2 – Lottery Scratch-card

For this project, we had to design a lottery scratch-card in Adobe Illustrator CS4. I basically created a Battleship scratch-card. The game is simple, scratch your 20 shells and scratch the position indicated by the coordinates on the map below. If you sink a ship with your 20 shells, you win its value. Below are the unscratched and scratched version.

School project S2 – Red Pepper vector art

This red pepper was created in Adobe Illustrator CS4 using the mesh tool. This was practice for our final project which is a detailed photo-realistic object. I will be posting that project at the end of the semester.
