Biotech Desktop

This was one of those projects that came about pretty quickly and was executed in quite short order, but came out rather well. We needed an in-house desktop and I had a pretty good vision of what I wanted, so on to the elements:

3D Rendered Microscope

I started with the concept of using a piece of tech amongst a swirl of energy, a Microscope of course! I used a 3D rendered Microscope as it is much cleaner and easier to matte than a photo of one.

The logo had been previously created using Illustrator which gave me a clean vector output to resize.

I then used just the top portion of a beautiful evening sky photo I had laying around, color adjusted it and blended it into a black background of the full desktop.
Fractal Energy

Lastly I used a fractal energy swirl combined with an oscilloscope stream to give the tech some presence.

The final combined image set the right mood with the hard lines of the microscope offset by the biotech ‘energy swirl’ and nice amorphous blue smoke element at the bottom.
