Google Chrome Speedometer

May 2017

A distinctive speedometer illustration for the Google Chrome team.



Addy Osmani from the Google Chrome team got in touch when they needed a new design for their Speedometer tool. The tool tests how fast a web app responds, given a pile of simulated user interactions like mouse movemenets, clicks, and keyboard input.

The team wanted a distinctive illustrated badge of a speedometer to use across the website and branding. Given my love of finely-rendered mechanical details, the project was a great fit.
