The BMT Whale Wheel is a whale identification product designed to enhance the experience of whale watching activities; it describes the features, size, location, and season information for 10 North American whale species. I was responsible for the illustration, design, and coordination of the production of this item. The round shape of a portal window seems like an apt solution for the basic structure, done in a burnished brass both because it is befitting of classic naval architecture, and to draw attention when hung up on retail display. The vector illustration in the center was also designed by me. Being in charge of production, I reached out to many printers who specialize in information wheels in order to get samples and price quotes. Once the product look and feel was approved on screen, I created the vector die files and worked with the vendor to make this product come to life.
