VISTA Series - A Tribute in Light

From Looking back at Tomorrow to the exciting possibilities of life on a fertile desert, floating city or space colony, Horizons presented THE most optimistic and forward-thinking display in the history of themed entertainment. Before the debut of its serialized Vista, we pause to pay tribute the greatest and most important of all deceased attractions.

Designer’s Note: Because of its historical complexity, the treatment of Horizons was always intended to be different from the other pavilions of Future World. Inspired by the shuttle mission plaques found at the exit of the Shuttle Launch Experience at the Kennedy Space Center, this edition is the only “gold” Pavilion it the otherwise “White Hot” pavilion line-up signifying its loss.
This special edition was designed (almost) simultaneously as the “standard” edition so it was tricky to restrain myself on some design choices in order to preserve its inherently somber tone.

VISTA SERIES - The Wonders of Light

From nutrition to medicine from exercise to conception, the Wonders of Life celebrates the entire human experience. Inspired by the pavilion’s festive color scheme the Vista is set against a background of teal and dark blue with gold and red light beams spiraling together to form abstractions of DNA.

Designer’s Note: The pavilion’s DNA Tower & Dome Line Art is heavily inspired by the similarly shaped Progressland Logo for the 1964 New York World’s Fair.

American Vistas

When you work for a 365 Company and practically all of your holidays are on a time clock, after a decade or so you start thinking some really weird things. Things like: “I really don’t see myself celebrating Independence Day this year”. But, then I think about all the things that America has given me, and how thankful I am to be born in a country were Dreamers and Doers are celebrated equally. The biggest of all these was Walt Disney, “an American Original” who believe that a technology-driven Unified World of Tomorrow was “just a dream away.” So to celebrate the same spirit that created the Legacy of EPCOT, I’d like to present our first VISTA from across the lagoon.

Designers Note: Usually I can’t tell how long I work on these, but considering I Started the whole process last minute at less than 48 hours ago I can say it took 18 hours to work on this one. (12 hours alone just to Vectorize the Pavilion!) And Yes, there are exactly 50 stars in the widescreen version.

 

To All People of All Nations
Happy Independence Day!

 

"TOMORROW will be better for as long as America keeps alive the ideals of freedom and a better life… What I will say now is just what most of us are probably thinking every day. I thank GOD and AMERICA for the right to live and raise my family under the flag of Tolerance, Democracy and Freedom."

-Walt Disney

 

America!
Spread your golden wings
Sail on freedom's wind, across the sky!
