Pang XinTuesday, Apr 26, 2016 - 03:17:19 am
I had some idea of what a Zine is before this project, but mostly from the poets (?) on Tumblr, so I think they might be my biggest inspiration for this project.
I also looked around a bit on Pinterest, and I’m sure I picked up one or two ideas along the way, although there wasn’t anything particularly specific. So.

ZINE- process and research
Initially, I wanted to combine all of the project i have done for 2D. However, I found that it was not easy and cohesive to combine my typographic project and point of view project together. Thus, I chose to focus my point of view project as I found it more interesting.

These are the photos of my final zine.
I chose to use an image of a drain cover as the cover page of my zine as I find that it best represents what my zine is about.
Which is my take on how cities are like in the point of view of drain covers.On the second page, it is Read more →

4. Other Art Assets
There were two sections in the Zine that needed decorative art work to fill the space in the spreads. Seeing as to how all the work that I created during this semester were being used as Featured material in this Zine, I decided to create a few more simple works to finish up the zine. The first of Read more →

3. Sound Scapes
For this section, I wanted to recreate another instance of my moire animation compositions. This was going to be based on the sound signatures that I created for Typographic Portrait. I followed a similar process to generate the various sound signatures.
I looked through online data to find that Karachi and Buenos Aires were two of the most noise Read more →

2. Data Visualization
For this section, I wanted to create visualizations about something chaotic, presented in an orderly manner. I decided to use facts and data about wars to create this visualization. Firstly, it fit the theme of what I wanted to do, and secondly, the data was widely available.
I looked around at the capabilities of both Circos.ca and Tableau. I Read more →

Designing the cover was a slight challenge for me. I was adamant about creating one that was unique and representative of the zine.

Now that I had my initial thoughts and ideas, I decided to commit them to paper and start planning out my entire Zine. The first thing that needed to be done was to firm up the contents of the Zine.
Ina had initially cautioned us against creating too many new assets for the zine. Instead, she had asked us to Read more →

Upon reading the brief, my first instinct was to try and create a publication based on all the works I had done this semester. However, I ran into some problems with trying to go this direction. The biggest of these problems was reconciling all the different works. This was an issue as the two big assignments, Points of View and Typographic Portrait, Read more →
