Using Adobe Illustrator, I drew inspiration from pop culture icons including Nintendo’s Fire Emblem, Marvel Studio’s Infinity War along with a few others to produce something that would be instantly memorable and recognizable for the company. After a series of four ideas, we chose the current design.
The four colors represents Quick Mount’s traditional prop values, all flowing into each other to complete the cycle, demonstrating QMPV as a complete solutions provider. Techniques included were using gradient meshing, texture wrapping and manual lighting for each prop value. Additionally, a responsive version was designed as well for compatibility across multiple screens and resolutions.
Personally, I would have to consider the “Complete Mounting & Racking Systems” as my lasting legacy for the company. As they had attempted to introduce a new line of products called the QRail, this was a crucial design campaign where I had the largest imprint on the company. It was the longest cycle, the closest that I had to work with our engineer team along with NDAs that had to be kept away from even some of my old co-workers until everything was ready.
Other projects that were involved with the QRail visual design launch included designing packaging, product datasheet and redesigning the company’s HTML email template for a 20-30% increase in click throughs for sample requests. As the marketing manager was looking for a new, more vibrant template I decided to use the visual looks of our existing catalogs in order to create something that was both new as well as familiar to our customers.
