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 →
The third postcard was meant to explore the contrasting relationship between analogue and digital. For this design, I wanted to show my tendencies in working with digital mediums as opposed to print and traditional materials. However, I wanted to take a reversed approach with the execution of this design. Instead of using code to create a work or design, I wanted Read more →
For the second postcard, I wanted to address the brief more directly and take it on from a typographic angle. As a designer, I am always looking around and paying attention to the typography that I see around me. I also have a habit of taking photographs of interesting type that I come across on the streets. For this design, Read more →
The brief of this assignment called for us to create typographic responses to a facet of ourselves. This particular design was intended to show how “I am a multi-disciplinary artist” by being able to work with and create ideas across disciplines with visual and sound based works. As such, I wanted to work around the concept and imagery of sound. The only ‘issue’ with Read more →
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 →
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.
The first pairing would be sound and animation. I find Read more →
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 →
For my final submission i used the theme “Paper Cranes” because cranes in Asian culture are used to symbolise happiness and eternal youth.
The first piece shows that I am youthful.
Cranes fly in a V-formation and I wanted to show a flock of birds flying with energy and youthfulness. It describes me because I don’t like to work Read more →
In my previous post, I discussed how simply pursuing a particular aesthetic and execution style was not helping me come up with any compelling compositions, ideas or directions to push this brief towards. I also mentioned earlier that I usually have difficulties creating works that were introspective in nature. At this point, I started looking around at what kind of directions Read more →
Armed with my research of Op Art, I went to work on experimenting and creating a few pieces. I like using digital as my weapon of choice. Especially with the creation of very precise geometrical shapes, I felt using a tool that was equally as accurate would make sense. I created these on Adobe Illustrator. Here are the results:
This first Read more →
