Adobe Max 2019

Article / 11 November 2019

What an amazing time I had in LA at Max this year. Thanks for the Adobe 3D and Substance teams for inviting me out to present and a big thanks to Nvidia who loaned me one awesome RTX4000 Boxx laptop to do it on.

We are really looking forward to working more and more with Substance at Volvo and cant wait to get stuck in!

Beijing Design Week

Article / 09 September 2019

I was lucky to be invited by Beijing Design Week and the SketchUp team to speak at an event in Beijing this weekend. Not only did I get to give a presentation on Sci-fi Design but also be on a panel discussion with some extremely talented Chinese and Japanese designers including Professor Min Wang, Design Director of the Beijing Olympics! 

And some aviation keep points I got to ride in both a 747-800 and A380!!

Volvo Sweden Rock Edition

Article / 06 June 2019

It's not often that I get to show any work from my actual job but happy to be able to share this truck striping I made with my two colleagues Nigel Atterbury and Fredrik Folkestad.

Volvo Trucks is one of the main sponsors of Sweden Rock and this year we produced a special one off truck to be displayed at the festival. The concept was to visualise the 'sound' of the truck itself and turn that into a unique design.

We recorded the D16 engine, turbocharger and air intakes, taking a range of different frequencies. In After Effects, using Trapcode Sound Keys and Mir3 we were able to create an animated plane to visualise the sound itself.
We found a pattern that displayed the frequencies we wanted to highlight and converted that into Vector Graphics. We used silver metallic film to be printed and applied to the vehicle itself, an FH16 750 8x4.

The end result was great and we had an amazing spot right next to the main festival stage!!
