A shot of an infographic I have been working on for a client. Aimed at showcasing years of experience and total combined years of experience of the employees within that department.

(secret fact: the idea for the isometric graphic of the cubicles/desks came about after seeing the isometric guide lines that Kyle Jones had in one of his shots.)

Very nice! Subtle effects and colors

3. ## Pro Chris Wallace!

John. That's not a secret fact. If it were, you wouldn't have shared it with anyone. Now it's a public fact. :P

4. ## Pro John Neiner

@Chris, I'm pretty sure it still is a secret fact . . . because I used parentheses! :P

I keep thinking that the desk should be casting a shadow too? Great work so far.

6. ## Pro John Neiner

@Tyler, totally. Therein lies the flaw with the design. We worked out the math for the isometrics and saved them as actions in illustrator to make the building of the cubicles and desks go quicker. The shadows would have to be worked out by hand.

Probably would be better to render the floor plan with a 3d program.

Looking good. That's really interesting, using actions to help with the drawing. Would like to hear more about that.

8. ## Jesh Barlow

Yeah. I'm really interested in your Illustrator actions technique too.

9. ## Pro John Neiner

@Brad & @Jesh: I was going to type a description of my process then realized it was easier to actually share the isometric actions set for Illustrator with you.

Once you load it in Illustrator you can try it out by drawing a 1" square, select it, then run the action titled 'iso_top'.
Draw another 1" square and run the action titled 'iso_side_01'.
Finally, draw the last 1" square and run the action titled 'iso_side_02' and there you have it!

I usually have smart guides turned on so I can easily line up the anchor points to assemble the piece.

Looks great John. A 3D program does seem like a lot less hassle.

Smart.

12. ## Jesh Barlow

Thanks for sharing John. I'll check it out!

Appropriately posted on Feb 14, because I love it. (sorry)
That's a hard call to make on the shadow-casting, yes? Maybe if the edge of the shadow was super-blurry, it would be easily avoidable elsewhere in the 'model'. But the crisp line is important. Oh, that reality.

14. ## Henri Liriani

Really nice work! I'm loving the choices in type and color palette.

15. ## Pro Joshua Sortino

There's no other word for it: beautiful!

16. ## Wills Bithrey

This is pretty awesome. Love the shadow of the overall room, but if you had desk shadow you'd need shadows on all the desks and I think it would be a bit over the top, at the moment all it's pretty clean and looks great. Also love the Font used for the title, and somehow I recognise it but can't remember what typeface it is!

Great work

@Wills, I think it was plain ol' Rockwell Regular

18. ## Laura Helen Winn

I really love this.
