Currently working on an interesting project on the subject of #BlackLivesMatter for my Typography class. Stay tuned!
Well, not really, but that's the event I'm designing a poster for. Here's a bit of process:
Initial Poster Designs
Round 2: Made some variations on the three favourites from the previous week's critique, and also tried a new layout with a composition I made from placing a piece of paper on top of the perfume bottle and rubbing chalk pastels on the paper, making a colourful image, full of texture. Had to clean it up a bit in Photoshop, but classmates were commenting that the rubbings looked like candies, which suited the Ronettes (sweet and vibrant).
Final Poster Designs
Finally did some much needed work on my process site, and gave it a new look. Still needs some refinement, making it appear better on Safari, like it does on Chrome, etc. and I also have a logo of sorts I need to figure out how to add as I want, but otherwise, I think a good improvement in the right direction.
Hey Look! Another redesign!
Also, have more progress on Project 2, including a fully interactive, nearly finished site on my faux dance studio, Mangue.
Had a project where we needed to make some icons for 4 random sentences. If you want to access my process work, you can download the .pdf on the right.
Yeah, I know it's midnight the day after, I'm a little late, but alas, I celebrate women's amazing power of love, success, and beauty. So proud of all the amazing women in my life, and to be one too.
Right now, I am learning a new language. I am learning...how to code (gasp!). I currently feel like I know nothing and am running around, a chicken with its head chopped off; but alas, I am making my way through. Painfully, yes, but I am doing it. For the semester, we are given a process site of our own to practice the skills we learn each week, so I thought I'd post a link to my webspace, as basic as it is, to show what my current interactivity (HTML and CSS) abilities are.
*Update* Did a ton of work on my website, and voila, I have a new and improved version!
This is a throwback to summer, when I began doing Henna/Jagua, as well as some design work for my hometown's Chamber of Commerce while I was working there for the season. Made some business cards for myself for both branches of my creative service.
More recently, though, with business cards, I have been asked by a friend to make her some cards for her glass blowing/working, which she is taking at Sheridan College. Stay tuned for those!
Did some editing of my painting "Vapour Thoughts" (which can be found on the Gallery page) by bringing it into a digital format, adding some text, and editing the colour. Made it to adapt to the style of Lucid Dreams, a creative collaboration group based in Toronto. Check out their website here: luciddreamer.space
So I've been 100% absent since I started at YSDN (whoops), but here are a couple things that I've made this semester in Typography. First year is kinda basic, so nothing too fancy. First is a poster we had to make for an imaginary event. The style of the poster mimics the featured artists' style, and I really enjoyed making this one.
Secondly, for I final project, we had to make a monograph of a list of given artists and then mount it on foam
core to make a 'book'.
I chose Basquiat for his chaotic, colourful style which most closely resembles my own.
Here's the final product.
Been doing a lot of readings lately in my Critical Issues in Design class. Was reading through Adorno's Culture Industry Reconsidered and found this quotable little piece of text. Inspired this design piece which I worked on in my elective class, i.e. THE most boring class I have ever attended.
