JNCO Jeans | Architectural Designer | 1995-1996
I was hired by JNCO jeans in early 1995 as a Graphic Designer. This was in the early days of Photoshop 2.5, and Illustrator 3.0. As the company grew, which happened very fast, my architectural background became more the focus, and I started their in-house trade show and P.O.P. program. Until then they had outsourced all of this work. The first thing that I designed was their trade show booth. Modeled and rendered in an early version of FormZ. After this, I designed the first and only JNCO Store to be built on Melrose Avenue and Martel in Los Angeles. I produced all the mechanical drawings, dealt with the permitting office , and oversaw the construction.
JNCO Store Design | Modeled and Rendered in FormZ
These are some of the renders that I did in 1995 for the design of the JNCO store. Modeled and rendered in FormZ an early architectural 3D program. For an early program FormZ was great, especially if you were trained as an architect. It was also one of the only raytracers out there with an interface as well as the only real choice for years on the Macintosh platform. I used to render these at 1024X768, hi-res for the time. I would hit the render button when I left for the day, most often the single render would be done by the time I got in, but not always.
JNCO Jeans | Store Design Mechanical Drawings
I produced all the mechanical drawing for both the furniture fabrication and the architectural plans. All the 3D work was done in FormZ and then I translated the vectors and did the orthographic drawings in Adobe Illustrator.
