Here’s a fun game: name something — anything — and see if Guy DiMambro, technical illustrator extraordinaire, has drawn it. Hermes designer handbag? Check. Medical devices? Yup. A vending machine that creates a pizza before your eyes? Of course. Howitzer artillery? This is too easy.
One day he strolled the aisles of Home Depot shopping for a heater, and saw his illustration on a Honeywell box. As Guy would say, “it jazzed me.”
While still in college studying architecture, he landed a technical illustration job with the auto industry, and his career took off from there. So much for those teen-age dreams of being a musician. Although he still plays a mean Led Zeppelin guitar solo.
Of all the work he’s done, Guy loves patent illustration the best. Words are great, he says, but it’s the illustration that often captures the essence of a creation. Bring on your idea, and Guy will work his magic.
Prepare to be jazzed.
