2015 Year in Review

2015 Year in Review

2015 brought steady growth for Triplet 3D. We had the privilege of working with many great companies on a variety of exciting projects. Everything from a motion graphics piece for a full-feature documentary about Back to the Future, explainer 3D animations, editorial illustrations, and a host of other projects from all over the United States. Aside from the new projects, Triplet 3D exhibited at Comic Con, Weapons of Mass Creation Fest, and spoke at an NAWIC (National Association of Women in Construction) event.


2015 Project Highlights


Hinkley Lighting

One of the first projects this year was for Hinkley Lighting. The illustration below is being used as a two-page spread to demonstrate Hinkley Lighting’s products and show how to use them to illuminate outdoor surfaces in their Landscape Lighting 101 catalog.

From start to finish the project took about 5 weeks to complete and included 9 total illustrations. This time frame included concept development for the overall look and feel of the architecture, line drawings, and renderings.

Back in Time Animation

One of the most exciting projects of the year was for Back in Time Films creating an explainer video about the technology behind the hover board. Director Jason Aron is using the animation in a full-feature documentary about the movie Back to the Future.

The goal for the overall look/feel of this animation was to make it look somewhat trippy, with a 1950’s mad scientist vibe.

RelateCare Explainer Animation

Another exciting animation project was for RelateCare, a healthcare consultancy and outsourcing organization that assists healthcare providers in improving and optimizing their patient access strategies.

Triplet 3D was commissioned to create an animation that combined character animation and motion graphics elements to explain RelateCare’s services. The project consisted of 7 unique 3D environments and 7 individual characters. Triplet 3D’s responsibilities included modeling the 3D environments, rigging the characters, texturing, lighting, animation, and post-production compositing.

Form Explorations Series

These pieces are from a new series I started that combines 3D visualization and illustration techniques using Cinema 4D and Photoshop. The process, discovery, and freedom are really what these pieces are about. Without using plans, sketches, or preconceived ideas allows for each piece to become whatever it wants, whether playful, upbeat, sad, subdued, colorful, monochromatic, etc. It is a stream of consciousness approach to making art.

Comic Con Cleveland

We had the pleasure of exhibiting at Wizard World’s Comic Con Cleveland from February 20-22 at the Cleveland Convention Center. It was our first time attending and exhibiting at Comic Con, and to be honest, we really did not know what to expect when we signed up for an artist’s alley booth.

Needless to say, the entire weekend was a blast. Upon entering the convention, we were greeted by Batman at the main entrance, and met dozens more Batman’s throughout the weekend, as well as the troublemaking duo Harley Quinn and The Joker. Hundreds of people attended, many dressed as their favorite comic, cartoon, and movie characters, including The Ghostbusters, The Avengers, Ninja Turtles, Darth Vader, Lord of the Rings, and countless others.

See you there again this year from February 26-28.

WMC Fest

The Weapons of Mass Creation Fest is one of the top graphic design conferences in the U.S., presented by Go Media in Cleveland, Ohio. WMC Fest 6 was held this past August at the AllenTheatre. Triplet 3D had the opportunity to be a vendor at the festival. A lot of great speakers, artists, workshops, and more made this years festival great to attend.

After exhibiting at an AIA Ohio event in 2014, I met Amy Hewis who invited me to speak at an NAMIC (National Association of Women in Construction) event. NAWIC provides its members with opportunities for professional development, education, networking, leadership training, public service and more.
