barrel-y made it

The Football Helmet Ice Barrel resulted from a challenging client request to design something striking for football season using only a standard ice barrel.  Originally, the design included a vacuum-formed helmet that rested on top of the ice barrel.  After this proved to be outside the client's budget, I graphically incorporated the helmet onto the barrel and attached a dimensional face mask to the front.  This provided the client with a cost efficient solution, even with the shape limitations of the ice barrel.

The graphic wrap was designed in Illustrator along with the die-guide for the face mask.  Textured and rendered in XSI, and finished in Photoshop.  Assembly Instructions created using XSI, Photoshop, and Indesign.

The "Counter Crawler" Display presented a challenge of incorporating movement and dynamism to an otherwise basic display.  The client request included dressing up a small counter-top unit that would not hold much product and would have strict size limitations, particularly in height.  I knew early on that I wanted Spider-Man to "jump out" from the display.  Through the use of three corrugated pieces, I achieved a 3D effect, and transformed a boring, boxy wire display into something unique and exciting.

After initial sketches, I designed the concept in XSI and Photoshop.  From there, I created a Solidworks model and engineering drawings.  Die-guides and graphics were created in Illustrator.  Textured and rendered in XSI, and finished in Photoshop.
