ANCIENT CULTURE / B&W ENVIRONMENT CONCEPTS

Personal work. Ideas on the discovery of an ancient culture’s abandoned temple that our yet anonymous protagonist finds in a remarkably well-preserved state. This is a project I am pursuing besides commercial ones so there will be updates from time to time.

CALPHALON / CONCEPT ART / PITCH

Concept Art I did for a pitch at weareflink, Hamburg, for self-sharpening cutlery. With this technology, knifes are sharpened by an in-block sharpener in the knife block everytime they are removed or replaced. The task was to develop a factory hall with massive machines inside the knife block to show the sharpening process.
