Fyresite Loves Phoenix: An Illustration Series is an homage to all of the great landmarks, buildings, and public areas Phoenix has to offer. As a graphic design firm, we wanted to illustrate our favorite places around the Phoenix Valley.
ASU Gamage and Tempe Town Lake, in Tempe, AZ
We bleed Maroon and Gold, so it was only right to do an illustration representing A-Mountain and Arizona State University. Go Devils!
Light Rail, in Phoenix, Tempe, Mesa, AZ
Some love the light rail; some hate it. We think it represents Phoenix so we vectorized it.
Tovrea Castle, in Phoenix, AZ
If you’ve driven on the 202 near ASU, you’ve passed Tovrea Castle. Most people don’t know its name or purpose, they just know it looks like a castle. Since Tovrea Castle is such a distinct landmark in the area, we added it to our illustration series.
Cardinal Stadium, Phoenix AZ
Cardinal Stadium represents Arizona becoming a mainstream state. Every NFL team has it’s own stadium, but the Cardinals played at Sun Devil Stadium for many years. Arizona brought in world-renowned architect, Peter Eisenman to help with the process. Arizona wanted to set a new standard for NFL stadiums with top-of-the-line design and technology. The stadium features a retractable roof and field. Go Cardinals!
The Mill, on Mill Ave in Tempe, AZ
Illustration of one of our favorite Tempe Landmarks! The Hayden Flour Mill is on the north end of Mill Avenue in Tempe, Arizona, the watering hole for Arizona State University. If you ever come to Tempe, you need to go to Mill Avenue!
Westward Ho! in Phoenix, AZ
An Illustration of one of our favorite historic buildings, the Westward Ho! Though it was originally a radio station, it is now a home for senior citizens.
Hotel San Carlos in Phoenix, AZ
The San Carlos hotel in downtown Phoenix has been running continuously since 1928. It has a cool old vibe and is a historic icon in the city.
