In August I was working on a project for work…

Early model of the handle.
First draft of the error page

At this point my boss pointed out it would be hard to recognize it as a lightsaber if you’re not a Star Wars geek.

A second draft with a more obvious lightsaber.

I was sort of disappointed at this point that the project specs changed, because I really liked the idea of using Typekit to change the error number while still making it look like the error number was part of the image. Personally I really prefer to know what the error number is so I can try again later or know that it’s permanently broken or whatever.

Final draft of mockup.

    The final draft turned out really well, I think (although I certainly understand your point about the error number). How did you make the model of the lightsaber?
