PULSE features Harald Belker's vision of the future of racing. There was a time when the fastest means of travel was a jet, but in 2035, private conglomerates have harnessed magnetic levitation (Mag-Lev) to create trains that get people from place to place in a fraction of the time.
To advertise the cutting-edge technology and sheer speed of Mag-Lev, events were held with a handful of machines and fearless racers. Within a few years, PULSE Racing Grand Prix were hosted in major metropolitan areas with the funding of the cities. The world of Pulse racing is introduced and illustrated via elaborate drawings and digitally rendered futuristic vehicles while telling the story of an adventurous young man thrown into the whirlpool of an all encompassing and physically grueling sport. Through captivatingly sleek and futuristic images, the audience follows the racers to the limits of speed and power while they are barely on the ground. The sleds force their drivers to the edge of human endurance while keeping the racing fans on their feet in excitement and enthusiam. Tactics and rules make the outcome of the race a nail bitter until the end as you never know who will emerge victorious in this incredible world of futuristic racing.

In the Fall of 2001, a group of seven conceptual designers gathered together in Los Angeles to begin work on a new creative experience. At the heart of their coming together was a desire to create and explore new images and ideas in a creative environment apart from their normal design jobs. A presentation of the efforts of this group is available in the form of the first Concept Design art annual.
Concept Design contains nearly 300 original color works by the seven contributing designers. In addition to the 84 Concept Design pieces, support sketches and roughs appear throughout the book. Each piece is accompanied by text detailing the design ideas and/or illustration techniques used. Concept Design is printed with quality as our primary focus. The book is 9”x12” in a vertical format with eight fold-out pages which allow for the printing of sixteen large horizontal images. No images cross the binding of the book, breaking the image.
