Datica Academy Series
The Datica Academy is the content channel for technical and training content. It helps pre-sales customers and developers learn more about complex healthcare topics like HIPAA, HITRUST, HL7, and more.
I created these “Series” illustrations for a planned collection of Academy articles around a given topic. I added other typefaces and chose to push outside the Datica brand a bit here to make them stand out among other content.
Datica + Kubernetes T-Shirts
For the launch of a new product that leveraged Kubernetes (a container orchestration platform), I was asked to create some T-shirts for the engineering team and as a giveaway at events.
I started with the 7-sided Kubernetes logo with the ship’s wheel. This led me to some nautical themes, and I found this cool old “Old Spice” ship (or was it The Pirate Bay? You decide!). I liked the idea of a a ship floating in on the clouds with the moon behind it.
I tried several variations and chose to make it a bit more modern and “blobby”. Inspired by the visual style of the “Kurzgesagt” web series, I arrived at this jaunty ship, floating on clouds. Here to orchestrate all your things!
The team loved the shirts, they vanished immediately. Like… a ship on the mists.
A few other personal projects. Painting is dear to my heart and I miss it.
Palau Blog Illustrations
For a new blog we were launching at Palau.org, I made sure there was space in the editorial calendar and the publishing platform (Wordpress) for custom illustrations. Each piece was “timeboxed” to 20 minutes each, using creative commons-licensed images from Flickr or other sources, and had to support the editorial theme. These were always fun to crank out.
Healthsparq UX Blog
I started a Tumblr for the UX team at Healthsparq to create a venue for us to write as a group. Following a similar pattern of creative constraints, I created these quickly, combining strict rules about color, a background image, and icon or white artwork.
