Fyresite Loves Phoenix: An Illustration Series is an homage to all of the great landmarks, buildings, and public areas that this wonderful city has to offer. As a graphic design firm, we wanted to illustrate our favorite places around the Phoenix Valley.
In the first part of the series, we focused on some of our favorite local landmarks–you can check out the part 1 illustrations here. This time, we’re branching out to include iconic Tempe and Scottsdale landmarks.
Tempe City Hall in Tempe, AZ
The Tempe Municipal Building’s upside-down pyramid shape may seem like a tourist trap or a goofy gimmick, but it is actually a genius design decision that keeps the building cool in Arizona’s scorching summers. We love designs that are both beautiful and practical–so we illustrated it.
Walter Cronkite School of Journalism at ASU Downtown Phoenix
ASU’s Downtown Phoenix Campus is full to the brim with beautiful buildings, but the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication Building is especially awe-inspiring. Besides, Fyresite always loves a good splash of orange!
Sun Devil Stadium at ASU Tempe
We already illustrated A-mountain in our last post, so it only made sense to do Sun Devil Stadium next. Go Devils!
Luhrs Tower in Phoenix, AZ
The Lurhs Tower was built in 1929 in downtown Phoenix. Its prominent art deco style creates a strong contrast between itself and other architecture in the city, making it a great candidate for illustration.
Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport in Phoenix, AZ
What’s Phoenix without Sky Harbor? This busy, bustling airport is one of the biggest airports in the United States, located just a few light-rail stops East of the Fyresite Phoenix office.
SkySong, the ASU Scottsdale Innovation Center
ASU is number one in innovation, and its SkySong Innovation Center does not disappoint. It’s home to hundreds of apartments and companies that attract bustling business startups from across the country. Plus, doesn’t it look amazing?
Taliesin West in Scottsdale, AZ
What’s Arizona Architecture without Frank Lloyd Wright? His former winter home, Taliesin West, has since transformed into the primary campus for the Frank Lloyd Wright School of Architecture.
