OUR PROCESS

How do we do it?

We interviewed one of our Senior Graphics Engineers to give you a “behind the scenes” look at our rendering process.

“My role as a graphic engineer is to review new orders and submit renderings for approval. I also generate files that contain color information, decal illustrations, livery renderings, as well as pre-engineering and quality control forms that go with each order throughout the production pipe line.

The process starts when the graphics team receives art work from our clients. It could be vector artwork, a photograph, a rasterized image or any kind of illustration that can be digitally manipulated and turned into vector art. The graphic engineer then uses the supplied images to create 2D renderings that contain each graphic element’s location and explicit detailed color information that must match the customer’s provided information. Once the rendering has been created and reviewed, is sent to the customer for approval. As a rule of thumb, an order can’t be released onto our production floor without written approval from our customer. After the rendering has been signed off, the graphic artist begins with the decal creation process.

Unlike a designer’s or an art director’s job, a production artist’s job is a position that requires precision over creativity.  It will still require some inventiveness on the final stages of the process, especially when the graphic artist is creating “wraps”. These are graphic elements that literally wrap around different parts of the aircraft such as the fuselage, wings, or engines.

In my opinion, the most challenging part in the decal creation process is the creation of wraps particularly with straight lines. The creation of a wrap requires an extremely attentive eye and skill-based approach to arrange the graphic elements around different parts of the aircraft to cover a specific area.

Our job may sound repetitive, but I enjoy what I do! We also work with different liveries and designs every single day, so it is always exciting to take on new challenges with a high degree of difficulty.”

LIVERY DESIGN

PacMin has the in-house talent and capability to design your custom aircraft livery.  A great example of this service is the NBAA models that we designed for their annual convention and charity auction.

Custom decorated models are also useful tools for developing full size aircraft liveries as well as deal commemorations.

FINE ART

Strong, visual communication is our specialty. When developing your product, it is important that you understand what the final result will look like. Our specially trained designers use a wide range of media techniques. From hand sketches to full color CG renderings, we make sure all your questions are answered and the project will meet your requirements.
