Concept in a day
The design challenge was to design a concept for BMW Motorad. Rather than another sportbike the idea of a modern incarnation of the classic R35 help more appeal; the idea being that recreating a classic meant holding tight to brand heritage.
Gerard Thomas, Illustrator
After graduating Art Center College of Design as an Industrial Designer with an analogue skillset, Gerard went on to work for Ducati Motorcycles in Italy, experiential marketing agencies, head of design for Californian based Mountaincycles and ran his own architectural 3D visualisation studio. . . amongst other things.
The one thing all his roles have had in common was the need to visually communicate ideas, concepts and designs; sketching, drawing and illustrating has always been part of 'the job'.
Today, based in Sydney, Gerard concentrates on illustration and concept design, using his diverse background and over active imagination to conceive and visualise a broad range of subject matter.
