Marissa Mayer: God, Family and Yahoo! (by tsevis)
A neofuturistic portrait of Marissa Mayer.
Yahoo! is a real internet legend. For an early Internet user like me Yahoo! was the internet. I still remember 18 years ago when I was opening the Yahoo! frond page to find something interesting. Sometime I had to wait so much for the page to load that I was leaving my Mac to go and prepare a coffee. Since the 90s a lot of time passed and nothing is the same. Yahoo! is still one of the Internet leaders but everything else changed. I have also changed. I don’t think I could expect back then that I would collaborate with Yahoo! to create graphics for the coverage of the London 2012 Olympics. I couldn’t imagine when I was opening my Flickr account in the early 00s that today our beloved Flickr would be plenty of avatars that I have designed. I wanted to celebrate this collaboration with Yahoo!. I wanted to make something outside any professional collaboration. So I have decided to create this portrait of CEO Marissa Mayer in a colorful neo-futuristic style.
Best viewed large. Attention: Big file. (9216 x 11578 pixels = 30.7” x 38.6” @ 300 ppi) Alternately you can zoom in to the high res (107 megapixels) file with Microsoft ZoomIt.
Made with custom developed scripts, hacks and lots of love, using my Mac, Studio Artist, the Adobe Creative Suite and good music.
See all my London 2012 Olympic Games graphics for Yahoo or my Avatars for the new Flickr.
Special thanks to everyone @ Yahoo!
