Chipboard [Cardboard] 4" (H) Unused Lobby Holiday Decor Concept Client: Empire State Building Design: Holiday Image / Richard Buran I generated this idea after multiple design iterations from fellow designers were rejected by the client. My premise took its inspiration from the deco flourishes on the Empire State Building's spire. If approved, they would have been 8' tall forms [similar to light boxes] and outlined in LED ribbon lighting. (c) Holiday Image

Prototype light set with custom color bulbs. Client: Saks Fifth Avenue Design: Holiday Image I hand-glittered each bulb with a clear, chunky acrylic "glitter" using a two-part epoxy adhesive. I then mixed the colors by eye based on a color chart provided by the client. This was accomplished by mixing acrylic paints with acrylic gloss medium. Each bulb was hand-pained with multiple coats.
