BayWa requested a display that would demonstrate some of the money-saving qualities of their building materials. I worked in Illustrator to design multiple graphic layout concepts, and then Vectorworks to further refine details of the designs. Max Schmidt Von Braun was in charge of this project, and the final three images show the finished result set up at the trade show.
A new model of tractor was scheduled to be introduced by BayWa at this year’s ZLF trade show, and I worked on some initial concepts for the placeholder to stand in the new tractor’s spot until the new tractor arrived on site, sketch ideas for how the curtain could be pulled away from the tractor, design and render more finished images, and assemble presentation slides to be shown to the client – complete with fog machine!
At Heilmaier Messedesign, I used Vectorworks to plan out shelving for the gift shop at BayWa’s exhibit at the ZLF agricultural trade show. I also used Photoshop to add details to these early renderings. The final image is of the exterior of the main BayWa trade show structure, which contained the gift shop.
I worked with Max Pollner on the design, modeling, and graphics of two columns of rectangular forms that visitors could rotate to create different combinations. The first two images are my Vectorworks renderings, and the third image is a later, more finished rendering by another designer.
I worked on some graphics for Kennemetal’s parking signs, 3D modeling for a cow milking machine, and planning for the stripe graphics at the BayWa exhibit at this year’s ZLF agricultural trade show in Munich.
This summer I worked as an intern at the Exhibit Design firm Heilmaier Messedesign in Munich, Germany as the final step to complete my Exhibit Design degree at the Fashion Institute of Technology.
I wasn’t expecting my work to find its way into the hands of clients so quickly, but I found myself in the middle of a very busy time at Heilmaier – they were preparing for an agricultural trade show taking place alongside Oktoberfest – so deadlines were fast approaching. As soon as I finished some of my designs – whoosh! They were assembled into presentations and shown to the client. It felt nice to know that I was producing something that was useful to the company. I think that was my biggest surprise – realizing that FIT had taught me skills that were truly valuable!
After working individually on many of my projects at FIT, it was nice to be working as part of a team at Heilmaier – it gave me a chance to meet the designers and learn from them more about working in Exhibit Design.
