Proudly crowning the scoreboard at the Orlando Citrus Bowl until demolition of the stadium commenced on January 29, 2014, the ORLANDO sign was seen and recognized by hundreds of thousands of fans and visitors to the Orlando CitrusBowl over the years.
Prior to demolition, each of the seven individual letters, ranging from six to eight feet tall and six to eight feet wide, were salvaged and stored to be transformed into a new iconic ORLANDO sculpture. Each letter has been retrofitted with more than 100 color changing LED lights. The new lighting will allow for the original colors of the ORLANDO sign to be replicated or changed to reflect a certain event or season.
The newly redesigned ORLANDO sculpture, standing 54 feet tall, symbolizes the reinvention of the Orlando Citrus Bowl. Located at the northeast corner of the Orlando Citrus Bowl site, where Rio Grande Avenue and Church Street intersect, in the pedestrian plaza at the base of the Grand Stair entrance, the sculpture is positioned at the new “Front Door” of the stadium and will again welcome visitors to Orlando and the new Orlando Citrus Bowl.
Fernando Vazquez, StudioFV Principal, led a team of artists and designers who designed and assembled the new ORLANDO art piece from the salvaged remnants of the old Orlando Citrus Bowl. Studio FV offers expertise in collaborative urban, architectural and interior design for all types of projects including environmental graphics, lighting designs and audio visual installations.
Part of this team was local company, AES, Artistic Entertainment Services, who did the fabrication and installation of the ORLANDO sculpture. AES is an industry leader in creating unique experiences for theme construction, trade show booths, exhibitions, full-scale special effects, stages and custom signage and props for theme park attractions, architectural projects, retail developments and large-scale parade floats.
When I was a kid The Maxx was (and still is) my favorite comic book, super hero, animated series from Sam Keith and Image comics. I came across this little piece of awesome on the interwebs the other day. Very cool.
Once you cut it out, fold and put it together you get this! (no tape required!)
Hell yes. My desk is happy.
Introducing a modern new design
The new WordPress dashboard has a fresh, uncluttered design that embraces clarity and simplicity.
The Open Sans typeface provides simple, friendly text that is optimized for both desktop and mobile viewing. It’s even open source, just like WordPress.
We think beautiful design should never sacrifice legibility. With superior contrast and large, comfortable type, the new design is easy to read and a pleasure to navigate.
WordPress on every device
We all access the internet in different ways. Smartphone, tablet, notebook, desktop — no matter what you use, WordPress will adapt and you’ll feel right at home.
High definition at high speed
WordPress is sharper than ever with new vector-based icons that scale to your screen. By ditching pixels, pages load significantly faster, too.
Pick a color
We’ve included eight color schemes so you can pick your favorite. Choose from any of them below to change it instantly.
Refined theme management
The new themes screen lets you survey your themes at a glance. Or want more information? Click to discover more. Then sit back and use your keyboard’s navigation arrows to flip through every theme you’ve got.
Smoother widget experience
Drag-drag-drag. Scroll-scroll-scroll. Widget management can be complicated. With the new design, we’ve worked to streamline the widgets screen.
Have a large monitor? Multiple widget areas stack side-by-side to use the available space. Using a tablet? Just tap a widget to add it.

Hello folks! It has been more than 6 months since my last post! Do you know why? Because I have actually been WAY too busy to post! Here is one of the things I have been working on. Punk rock legend, Dan Vapid (Sludgeworth, Screeching Weasel, Riverdales, Mopes, Methadones) started Dan Vapid and the Cheats in 2011 and I have been doing their website since.
Recently I have been working with Italian graphic genius Riccardo Bucchioni on a t-shirt design and as usual he came up with something amazing! I am silk screening these bad boys and am in charge of the online shop and mail order operation.
Incon Lighting released their new 2012 catalog which I designed and did the product photography for over the course of 2011. This was a beefy project with over 144 products in a multiple of color variations and additional options spanning 136 pages. This company was fun to work with because they have big ideas and the drive to make it happen!
I also spent the past couple of months on their new website to match the new look of the catalog, price guide and business cards for a complete corporate face lift. I love these kinds of projects because it allows me the ability to coordinate all aspects of a company’s corporate identity from letterhead to web graphic making a cohesive impression for clients and customers.
The new website is going live today and we are all very excited for it’s launch!
