In addition to working on the layout, I like to think creatively and develop amenities that add to the flavor and comfort of the layout room. Below are some Iowa Interstate-themed items that I’ve custom created.
I rendered the IAIS logo in Adobe Illustrator and had a local sign company cut vinyl that I carefully applied and burnished onto the ceiling light.
Next, I decided to design and fabricate a neon IAIS logo for the layout room. I drew the logo up and had the black base CNC’d out of plexi, added reflective yellow type, and had a local custom neon artist create the red accent line out of neon. It hangs above one of my work surfaces.
Finally, I decided to fabricate stools for when operators come for a session. I purchased two, 30-inch stools in a weatherworn red color, and had black leather embroidered and then upholstered to fit.
