finding place/meaning

In my work, I am lucky to collaborate with talented designers;  those that talk about space, place and meaning.

As a design/illustrator, this becomes a reciprocal process. Formulating ideas and working back and forth and scheming in the 3rd dimension is magical. There are many ways to describe space, but the one on one with a pencil in my hand is where the key communication and collaboration unfold.

Asking:

Who is the audience? What is the story? What will bring people on this space and why?

Shapes and planes, and values, colors, textures, beauty and scale are just a few players in this iterative process.

The design is unique and the drawings become a great starting point in the architectural design process.

clear communication is key

Illustration requires a keen sense; specifically, collating strong design concepts; collaborating with creative team members and utilizing every tool available to represent appropriately information for a specific audience.

As I gather clues and sketch out rough diagrams, I ask my clients “Is this what you have in mind?” The team gets inspired to see their ideas in 3 dimensions and even more flow of ideas are evaluated and discussed, strengthening concept. Soon, I am ready to get to work; combining and reinforcing the views with a dynamic viewpoint, typically eye-level; how one would truly experience the space.

Below are a few examples of ‘final’ though appropriately conceptual perspectives for an interior project recently created.

Collaboration is everything!
