Book Trailer – Unventional: Ideas Too Good To Patent

by Tom Giesler

Years ago when Vectorvault was just getting started, we discovered Tom’s work. As an accomplished patent illustrator, he had already achieved a great deal of respect. Technical drawing is a specialized form of illustration that draws upon several disciplines. And Tom is very good at it.
Trust me. I’ve tried my hand at it. It can be challenging.

Big Fans

His new book looks amazing.

But it was Tom’s whimsical images that captured our attention. His artwork has shown that technical work can have personality and in the case of his new book: create smiles.

Adam Jarvis – Creative Director – Proprint Creative Engine

I love retail POS design

For the past 3 years I’ve been working very closely behind the scenes on a very exciting brand building project. Proprint has been serving as a secret retail POS design laboratory for me. And I’m very excited to finally be able to tell people about what’s going on there.

First of all

We’ve established a retail pos industry blog that serves two purposes. The first is to inspire those who love retail pos production as much as we do. And the second is to showcase this unique company. Your comments, likes and shares are so appreciated. Thanks.

Special circumstances

Proprint is like no other company I’ve worked with. What makes them special is not just an arsenal of incredible technology. It’s not even the fact that Proprint is positioned at the starting line and the finish line. What makes Proprint unique is the people. I’m happy to be a part of the team.

Covering all touch points

I watch projects come in on a cocktail napkin and then successfully activate at the retail level. It’s literally a one-stop-shop. They make it look easy, but the truth is, this team is a production symphony. One that has allowed me to sit in the back with my triangle and participate.
I know first hand the level of quality, and client service that is required for effective packaging and engaging retail displays. I know this, because I have observed it in action.

Creative Direction for Retail Point of Sale

I have been challenged to solve brand puzzles in 3 dimensions. Each project continues to bring with it, new things to learn and pass on. Both for myself and our clients.

Game of Thrones – Season 5 – Finale

Another amazing season

*No spoilers – just pictures
There were so many incredible twists in this final episode. I really enjoy where this story is taking me and I cannot wait to see where it goes next.

If you’re not watching Game of Thrones, I gotta ask you:

Just what exactly are you watching?

Zootopia – Teaser Trailer

The animal kingdom – civilized

The modern mammal metropolis of Zootopia is a city like no other. Comprised of habitat neighborhoods like ritzy Sahara Square and frigid Tundratown, it’s a melting pot where animals from every environment live together—a place where no matter what you are, from the biggest elephant to the smallest shrew, you can be anything. But when optimistic Officer Judy Hopps arrives, she discovers that being the first bunny on a police force of big, tough animals isn’t so easy. Determined to prove herself, she jumps at the opportunity to crack a case, even if it means partnering with a fast-talking, scam-artist fox, Nick Wilde, to solve the mystery.

Vectorvault is 10

A decade of vector art

This year, Vectorvault celebrates 10 years of searching the world for the most inspiring and creative vector art. What an education. What a ride.

Now, this is not what I would call a “success story“. At least not in the traditional sense. In many ways this is a cautionary tale marinated in stunning digital art. Some of the best I could find.

So, who am I?

Just some guy.
You could look through my portfolio if you wanted or glance at my resume, but that won’t really tell you who I am. At times, I question it myself. To really know what makes me tick, you’ve gotta know what circumstances got me here.
I’m an artist disguised as a designer.
It’s a secret.

All I can tell you is that I’m a nice person who just wanted to leave something behind. That’s what Vectorvault is to me. Proof of my existence and my love for the exciting world of vector art.

This is a graphic design love letter. One filled with triumph and tragedy.

The planets were finally lining up

I was drunk on self-confidence. Furiously pouring my soul into my notebooks. Writing stories about my life. Love letters to my wife and daughter. And laser-focused on leaving my mark on the world of graphic design.
