Chilin Solutions Datasheets – 2012

Here are a series of datasheets I have created for LCD/LED Monitor company Chilin Solutions. These are the technical readout sheets for each of their individual monitors. The datasheets were based on old templates that were set up in Illustrator, as they wanted new templates set up in InDesign. I performed the layout to original specifications in InDesign, processed new images of monitors, matched the original typography and layout, updated recovered graphics and maintained an update schedule as technical changes were made available.

Vacations Ahead!

Vacations AheadThe weather outside is nice. So nice, we all start thinking of road trips. Here’s to that. This is Laura’s newest letterpress post card, naturally entitled “Vacations Ahead”. It has this old cut that, although we have no idea what the original intent was, the message is clear. You can get yours in the Platemark Etsy Store!

West Linn Residence – 2011

This was one of the recent cases I had worked on for Pinnell/Busch. A house had been moved to a new property. The contractors that moved the house had built the foundation at a higher elevation than what the original plans had called for. This series of graphics explains the reasons for the changes. I started with a two-dimensional topographic map of readings from the preliminary assessment of the property and created a three-dimensional topographic contour in Sketchup. On this landscape I constructed a model of the house to specifications found on existing plans. The house was set at two different levels: the as-planned elevation and the as-built elevation.

Here is the model I constructed in Sketchup to be used in all pertinent exhibits. This view is the As-Built condition, as it exists in the real world.

As-Built Excavation

As-Built Excavation

Here the exhibit shows the amount needed to be removed from the terrain for the footprint of the foundation.

As-Built Excavation

This is the three-dimensional representation of how much was removed. The exhibit was to read the cubic yards of fill that was removed.

As-Built Excavation (Front View)

This is a front view of the excavation needed for the foundation with the model of the house and foundation.

Same as previous, but the side view.

As-Planned Condition

As-Planned Condition

This is the same house at the As-Built condition, but placed at the As-Planned elevation. Notice that half the house is underground. This is not a mistake. Well, not my mistake, anyway.

As-Planned Condition (Translucent)

Making the terrain translucent shows the house and foundation and the position under the terrain level.

The first of two sections, this was to show where the terrain levels would be in the As-Planned condition.

This is the excavation necessary for laying the foundation at the As-Planned level.

Here is the three-dimensional representation of what would be removed in the excavation for the foundation. When compared with the As-Built excavation, it is easy to see the volume difference of fill to be disposed of.

Here is the house in a frontal view showing what the excavation looks like under the terrain level. The orange above the dotted line is above foundation level.

This is the first in a series of three slides to show how much of the terrain would have to be removed to make the As-Planned house elevation accessible, all at additional cost.

Photo Stitiching for Pinnell/Busch – 2009 – 2010

Here are two different photo-stitch jobs I had completed for projects at Pinnell/Busch in 2009 – 2010. These have been reduced in size quite a bit. Higher-resolution versions of these images can be made available.

Gettin’ all the chicks!

Here’s the latest in Laura’s post card printing spree. It’s quite an odd thing to find a block like this, and it just begged for such a caption. I helped with that. Go Ralph! I particularly like the eggs for where the stamp goes. You can get it in Laura’s Etsy shop here!

This art is insulting!!!

Here is one of my favorite things right now. This is the recent book Laura has made in collaboration with Portland artist Iris Porter. It’s called “26 insults” and is a hand-letterpress book with a stitched binding. The content of the pages feature 26 cleverly chosen insults, alphabetically listed from A to Z . . . that is from “Asshat” to “Zipper-Sucking Zodiac Ho”. The idea is when you need to insult someone in a very passive-aggressive way, you carefully choose the insult that best matches the deserving person. Then you tear out that page (all the pages are perforated for ease of tearing) and hand to that person. Then make a quick getaway depending on the passive or aggressive tendencies of that person.

The book is truly a work of genius . . . or geniuses. Laura has it for sale in her Etsy store Platemark X for $6.50. That’s 25 Cents per insult!

New Em Space Poster Design!

Here’s the latest letterpress poster Laura has produced. This one is for the Em Space “Back To School Open House”, based on the old, classic Pee-Chee folder design. Not familiar with Pee-Chee? Then you probably had Trapper Keeper when you were in school. I remember both of them, so I guess I’m only kinda old.

“Epiphany” CD Cover Layout and Design – 2001

Here is a CD cover I created for Portland-based band Written In Ashes. All photo credits are myself unless otherwise noted.

Front and Back of CD Insert

Front and Back of CD Insert

This is the CD "Epiphany" of Portland band Written In Ashes, released in 2001. I was responsible for creating the cover art and layout. This is the front and the back of the CD insert. Both front and back photos were my own images. You might recognize the front cover photo as from the stitching demo in another post in this portfolio.

Inside of CD Insert

This is the flip side of the CD insert.

CD Tray Back

This is the back of the tray card.

This is the image as it appears on the inside of the tray card. Photo credit is Marshall Serna. I was still responsible for the layout.

On-Disk Printing

This is the image as it appears on the actual CD. Again, photo credit is Marshall Serna. The image was arranged so it would appear in the same place on the CD and the CD tray insert.

Raincloud Records Logo

Raincloud Records Logo

Raincloud Records was an offshoot of Rainforest Records that came into being with the release of this CD. The owner of the record label had me create this logo at the same time as the CD cover art.

Suburban High School – 2010

This is a Sketchup model I drew from specifications on existing plans. Views of this model were used in graphics pertinent to a case we were working on for Pinnell/Busch. The Photoshop exhibits I had worked on have been deemed too proprietary or legally sensitive to feature on the website.
