The main objective of this assignment was to explore and design the definition of design through images that asked more specific questions about its function. Design can be playful and invoke critical thinking at once. Word games operate in that same vein, and are therefore the concept behind these images.
This is a fold-up brochure of a lecture series called Visual Structures. The lecturers include a graphic designer, a filmmaker, and an architect. The backside of the brochure turns into a poster when it is opened up. The layout uses the concept of visual structures and how they link together.
This poster showcases my personally designed typeface, Elie Sans. The project was to choose a notorious typeface, choose a specific curve of a letter in that typeface, and use that as a guide to a new typeface. I chose Gill Sans.
Focus Publishing is a textbook publishing company that covers a variety of subjects including languages, literature, science, history, philosophy, and theater. The idea behind the pinwheel logo I designed is that Focus is a company offering a versatile yet concentrated education. The arms of the pinwheel represent the varied subjects that Focus covers.
This is a mock-up of one of the various subjects I designed for the series of textbooks under Film Production: Sound.
Using real articles and images, I redesigned the front page layout of an issue of The New York Times. The objective of this project was to design an easier to read and more intriguing layout. It also shows even more text than was used on the original issue on a smaller size page. The size of the redesign is 11 by 17 inches. The size of The New York Times is roughly 11 by 22.5 inches.
Dark Room is a photography lab company whose logo I chose to redesign and create a stationary for. This is the business card I designed for Dark Room.
“I Spy” is a song by the band Pulp. The poster shows different representations of the lewd lyrics of the song. By using only black and white type, the poster also displays the melody, beats, and the soft or loud parts of the song. The original height of the poster is 8 feet tall.
