U.S. Army Fact Files

The Project

The Fact Files site contains information about various pieces of Army equipment, including weaponry and vehicles.

What I Did

I did this project long time ago, and the site shows it. It's one of my favorite older sites and continues to be one of Army.mil's most popular Feature sites. I designed and developed the site, and also created quite a bit of vector art for it, though not every piece of line art is my work.

What I Learned

This was early in my career so I greatly advanced my front-end development skills. I also became very comfortable with Illustrator's pen tool, and was happy to revisit the site in recent years with further expansions, when I got the chance to make even more intricate line art.

Probably the most complex piece of vector line art I've created to date.
