Take the time to have a look at all the detail that went into all the interfaces designed by Jayse for The Avengers movie. I impressive. Here’s what Jayse had to say on his site -
This is just an image dump of marvel approved stills and screenshots of my work on the film. I’ll do a proper post soon – this is a fraction of the work – But I had the distinct pleasure of working with Cantina Creative, leading the design of the glass screens for the Helicarier in the Avengers. I also led the design and animation of the all new and upgraded Mark VII Hud.
All work was done in Illustrator, After Effects and Cinema 4d.
Included are some partial explanations of how the HUD diagnostic functions
Variations of it in ‘all clear’ mode, and a ‘battle mode’, after the suit has suffered damage and new windows have popped up to show depleted weapon stores and hazardous environmentals and general.
The flight menu was designed with input from an A-10 Fighter Pilot. I like to keep my stuff accurate – while still taking design liberties that films afford.
I start all designs on paper so I included some ideas for the dock icons. When I sketch stuff out – I find it important to not use a ruler and give yourself ‘permission to draw badly”. In the final icons, the more detailed versions show system status based on the way they animate.
Add on note – I’m all about giving credit where credit is due (mainly because I’ve never gotten credit until this film – screen designers typically don’t unfortunately.)
A lot of people are giving me sole credit for everything designed in the film – but I don’t deserve that much credit. I like to always mention that I was part of a small elite crime-fighting team called Cantina Creative.
This page represents just a small part of what I did in my 7 months buried in the Avengers Universe, and an even smaller part of what the entire team did for the film. There’s also the Loki search monitors, the on screen playback monitors, stark devices and the science lab monitors (which just used my designs as the foundation framework.)
We had a ton to do – these screens are seen in over 70% of the film, and I’m proud of what our team pulled off under the guidance of the always awesome Venti Hristova.
We all worked super hard on this film – and became a family of friends for life. So I just wanted to give a shout out to my fellow Cantina peeps here:
