Technical Flats for Firefighter Uniform Research
As a member of a Baylor University research team, I was charged with the task of drawing technical flats of test garments. The goal of the research project was to determine if a recently developed cleaning solution would remove the carcinogenic materials that often remain on unwashed firefighter uniforms without lessening the effectiveness of the treated fabric. To help the team leader successfully present the project to fellow peers and investors, I used Adobe Illustrator to create detailed images of the test garments. As a member of this research team, I not only refined my digital drawing skills, but also gained insight into the importance of protective fabrics and their care.
