The King Kong Icon across from the two above restaurants is seen here with the Nascar building.

Universal City Walk
Virtual Map Project 2004 PART I
Client: Universal Studios Hollywood via The Cimarron Group.
Direction: Mary Ellen Schrock
Project Date: Spring 2004
When I was an in-house 3D Design Director at The Cimarron Group from 2003-2009, I regularly provided 3D design and animation for the corporate divisions big client, Universal Studios, and today I've posted PART I on the work I did on the virtual map of the City Walk Mall.
I built it out in stages with a full architectural model of the entire mall, as well as parking structures, the grounds around the mall, as well as the park entrance itself. Today I have posted four of the over tow dozen locations I made.
The design is simple with the attention in the 3D Signage and logos to help with the fact that this was a virtual 3D map. I will be posting added shots from the various locations in the weeks to come.
A fun project that was eventually replaced with photography in the end, but a fun exercise and concept.
As a side note I worked on one of the Themed stores that used to be there "Out Takes", and you can view those here.
