(POV) Research

@ Birdkeeper Lea

This post is a little overdue, so I apologise for that and for rambling a little *stares directly into the sun and laughs crazily*

For my research this time around, I don’t really have much as I have for previous projects because I’ve been working on (and trying to improve) a similar style throughout this semester and the end of the Read more →


Postcard Four (3D Modeling)


Wednesday, Feb 24, 2016 - 04:14:19 am

@ Kapilan Naidu

The last and final postcard was going to created to represent three-dimensionality. Of late, I had been working more and more with digital 3D techniques and I wanted one of these postcards to reflect that.

My initial idea for this design was to use one-point anamorphic. Anamorphic statues and designs are works that only reveal themselves to the viewer when standing Read more →

great documentation... super glad to see your own take on project

Making the Moiré Screens and Animations


Tuesday, Feb 23, 2016 - 08:18:01 pm

@ Kapilan Naidu

Seeing as to how animation would be the constant in all the designs, I needed to carry out some experimentations into how the moiré animation technique really worked. I have previous experience in digital and stop-motion animation and I found that this was useful in understanding the technique better and working faster.

There are mainly two aspects to the moiré method. The first Read more →


Conceptualizing the Final Works

@ Kapilan Naidu

I spent some time thinking about the multidisciplinary pairings for my final four postcards and come up with the following. I will also cover the possible processes that I might be taking to complete each of the post cards. All the cards will share a starting point of moiré (slit) animation.

1. Sound

The first pairing would be sound and animation. I find Read more →


Interpreting 'Multi-Disciplinary'


Monday, Feb 22, 2016 - 09:33:03 am

@ Kapilan Naidu

Now that I had my direction and descriptor, I had to decide in what ways I am going to push the brief and the series. I had already decided that all the postcards will share the same descriptor. As such, I had to figure out four unique ways to demonstrate various aspects of multidisciplinary. While digging further into the crossroads between interactivity and Read more →

Really liked the effect that paper marbling produces

Collecting as much as possible of background information is really important a designer you need to start making 'ideas boards'- bank of images or references from other books, magazines- this is very important for ideation process . all the information is then fed into your process...and final! Do not forget to upload images of your final works!

For my research, I came across 3 artists which I drew my inspiration from. The first one was Sean Williams. He used words to form an image of a person which I thought was quite creative and apt for this project.

The second artist I referred to was Fran Efless. I thought it would Read more →


Pursuing Optical Art


Monday, Feb 15, 2016 - 07:43:59 am

@ Kapilan Naidu

After making up my mind to create the design in the style of Optical Art, I carried out some research to look at artists that have come before me. I was paying attention to the black & white, figure-ground relationship in the compositions and looking at how I may incorporate typography into them. Here are some of the works that Read more →

Beginning Work


Monday, Feb 15, 2016 - 07:16:16 am

@ Kapilan Naidu

Upon looking at the brief, I was rather lost at the beginning. I am usually not the kind of person to create a series of works based on just myself. I usually like creating pieces that involve my views and interactions with a particular subject matter. So when the brief called for the limelight to be placed on me, I Read more →

Looking forward to more posts in particular to final pieces. Great works and please take few risks along the way!

TP: Process II (water)


Monday, Feb 15, 2016 - 03:39:21 am

@ 風鳴る翼

As i wanted to go with the theme of nature, after branches, the next element that came to my mind is water. Initially, i was wondering how should i make water interesting when it is just water?


I found really good references of water cut outs on pinterest. It reminded me that water could contain so many things! Fishes, seaweed, bubbles, Read more →

great drawing and style of design ..eclecticism of Japanese traditions and modern paper cut-outs drawings
