Offsite Wood

Offsite Wood is a plugin for Revit and a current client of my studio. It provides high-quality content families of textures, accessories, mass timber detailing and more, that architects and designers can integrate to their 4D building information modelling (BIM).

1. HERO IMAGE

The design brief asked for an illustration representative of the architecture industry incorporating the following elements:

  • Isometric architectural rough sketch of a two-storey building
  • Human hand holding a paint brush
  • Watercolour pine tree typical of Canadian forests, growing out of the brush

The illustration is used as part of the hero image for Offsite Wood’s home page offsitewood.org, along with other BIM components.

Dark grey outline rough sketch of the same house, with an added tree base and roots, and some green brushstrokes resembling grass.
Final sketch of isometric two storey house, fully coloured tree base, roots, rocks, grass and bushes.

2. TRADESHOW BANNERS

The client required two tradeshow booth banners, double sided, incorporating the hero-image illustration and reinforcing Offsite Wood’s visual voice. The goal was to provide the client with flexibility in placement of their brand and message, so they could play with the overall design of their booth for different events.
