illustration of Multi-university research group studying the range of impact of fractal drilling induced earthquake effects on community and commerce.
illustration of Electric Car concept of charing the battery through roadbed power grid system to charge while driving in specialized lanes.
illustration of How nano particles enter the natural environment through accidental releases into the air and water systems.
illustration of An exploded view to reveal the structural layers of a walking shoe produced by LaCrosse Footware, Danner Boot.
illustration of Explored view of the RME, Relay Mirror Experiment, for the Dept of Defense that uses a matrix of mirrors that use laser beams to detect and communicate information about the approach of enemy ICBM missiles. This is the back side, the reaction-mass side. Also the front mirror side art.
illustration of Explored view of the RME, Relay Mirror Experiment, for the Dept of Defense that uses a matrix of mirrors that use laser beams to detect and communicate information about the approach of enemy ICBM missiles. This is the front side, the r,functional mirror side. Also see the back side, the reaction-mass side illustration.
illustration of This is the main graphic that represents a university research group studying the parts of the brain involved with smell and how it can effect memory in the area of Alzehiemer's research.
illustration of SICO Eurobed Murphy Bed support system that regulates how a king or queen-size bed can the raised or lowered with easy 2-finger operation through a system of heavy springs in the beds base.
illustration of Nanoscale surface sensors that help a robotic hand be more sensitive and effective. Nanoscience, nanotechnology.
illustration of This deep-space telescope features a new mirror concept that allows for the mirror to be calibrated in weeks instead of months. NASA telescope. Sectional dimetric view.
illustration of Robotic programmable floor scrubber uses a laser beam reading large wall-mounted barcodes to triad its way through pre-programmed warehouses. Front mounted unframed and ultrasonic sensor prevents accidents on the job. Created for Windsor Technology. Original art is airbrushed watercolor and ink pen on paper.
illustration of SICO RoomMaker Murphy Bed support system that regulates how a king or queen-size bed can the raised or lowered with easy 2-finger operation through a system of heavy springs in the beds base.
illustration of Personalized Medicine: Chemotherapy micro-sensor. The micro-sensor implant is loaded with all 26 known chemotherapy drugs. The sensor measures cellular die-off to determine which drugs the patient's individual body best responds to. The results are then used to make the perfect chemo-cocktail to effectively treat the patient.
illustration of Exploded view reveals the constructions layers that make up the perfect boot. Done for Danner Boot / LaCrosse Footwear.
illustration of Cave exploring drones work in networks and need to navigate and communicate with other drones and rovers. Underground communication can only occur using particular frequencies.
illustration of This nanoscale diagram shows the Interface dynamics when using treated water in fractal drilling to maximize oil yield from shale.
illustration of This nanotech concept reclaims common exhaust waste heat and reclaims it by converting the heat back into a useable energy.
illustration of Underground caves are explored with a network of flying droves and various-sized land rovers. Underground communication and information-sharing can only be done on certain frequencies and enhanced through use of relays and other properties of rock and vibrations. Done for the Univ. of Colorado.
illustration of This exploded view, construction view, displays the various layers that go into the creation of a fabulous hiking boot. Done for Danner Boot / LaCrosse Footwear.
illustration of Exploded/construction view displays the various layers and features that go into designing a waterproof hiking boot. Created for Danner Boot / LaCrosse Footwear.
illustration of Two sets of custom icons related to 2 nanotechnology programs: the 5 Strategies and the also the 5 Phases of Construction. Created for the University of Colorado's School of Advanced Engineering and Applied Science.

Profile

Since opening the doors in 1997, Lightspeed Commercial Arts has specialized in high-end technical and product illustration, science illustration, as well as logo design/visual branding. Early in his career, Mike Hamers, designer/illustrator (and founder of Lightspeed) has worked as an illustrator in the corporate art departments of Simplicity Lawn & Garden, Harley-Davidson Motorcycles (WI), Jeep/Renault (WI), and Ball Aerospace (CO). Since founding Lightspeed in 1997, Mike has worked closely with many companies, in many industries, both large and small, including: IBM, N.A.S.A., Dept. of Defense, Xerox, Microgravity Enterprises, N.C.A.R., Medtronic, Durect Medical, International Assn of Drilling Contractors, Mobil Oil, Alaska Clean Seas, Metron-Farnier Water Meters/Verizon), and with the Advanced Science & Technology departments of the Universities of Colorado, Texas, Utah, and Wisconsin to name a few. We take great pride in having won over 35 national and international “Awards of Excellence” of our LOGO designs. Additionally, we have also won the “Best Of Category” in other areas – including “BEST USE OF”: Typography (Sweet Greens font DESIGN), Logo Usage Guide (for the Town of Mead), Photography (Addiction Recovery Story), Corporate Environmental Graphics (Dessault 3D Systems), and for Illustration (unpublished illustration called “Momentum”). Mike Hamers has authored several books including: “Walking With Rumi” and the soon to be released “The Little Book of Logo Design: A beginner’s guide to creating meaningful and memorable logos.” Within the fine art world, Mike has conceived, participated in, and curator many themed group art show in Colorado including: “Out of the Black and Into the Blue (Firehouse Art Center/2013); “Through Art, Visions and Dreams the Light Gets Through” (NCAR Galleries 1+2 / 2015), and “Art As Medicine” (Dairy Center for the Arts/2017). Mike also had a one-may mini-retrospective called “More Art Than Science” in 2018 (NCAR Gallery 1). Mike also helped to convert an unused library space in the Pine Street Church, into a public-access gallery space called “Colorado Art Asylum” with the overarching theme of “Where art and spirituality meet”.
