A few years ago I had a discussion with a design colleague about “think tanks”. The definition for that which I have always had in my mind was something like a large room or container where people go to think. In other words, a large private room to brainstorm and think of ideas.
However, my colleague jokingly made a comment about needing to purchase a “think tank” so he could come up with better ideas, and it was the first time I had ever heard the term used in that context. It sparked quite a debate, and it ended with him thinking I was nuts for thinking about it as a large room of some kind. Was I right, or was he? I don’t think there is a definitive answer for that.
I have never forgot about that discussion, and I have always wanted to make a series of stock illustrations featuring think tanks – just as my colleague had described. Here is the first set of images from that collection:
- A large blue think tank lying on its side over a dark gray reflective surface
- A big high pressure think tank standing behind a pair of dark sunglasses
- A blue think tank wearing a large red and white lifesaver
- A large blue high-pressure think tank with a thick metallic hose connected to the nozzle
- A large blue think tank wearing two large gears over a reflective steel surface
- A big blue high pressure think tank lying on it’s side over a white reflective surface with a thick metallic hose attached to the nozzle
NorebboMy name is Scott, and I started in the design industry over 20 years ago with a bachelors degree in Industrial Design from the College for Creative Studies in Detroit, MI. I have an extensive background in both 2D and 3D illustration, and these days, I spend a majority of my time creating aircraft templates and airliner art. I’m basically an airplane dork.
