Here, I tested out the original scans and wanted to make them usable since the original colors are pretty interesting…
The circle really tie in with the whole Chinese theme I going on here.
I started this zine by questioning the relevance of making a physical zine when there were so many e zines available online. I also realised that when I read online zines, I tend to spend time loading pages and my eyes would focus intensely on the loading symbol. This was something that I previously did not Read more →
I got really inspired by this particular menu. I really enjoyed the fragility of the lines and how they make the vectors. The use of black and white colors yet using red really make the red pop. I eventually red pop by using red on the things I wanted to be the main focus of.

My main purpose of doing the test prints were to explore the formatting of the pages. Firstly because I was not very good at InDesign…
In my sleep deprived mind that night, for some reason I thought formatting on Microsoft word might be a good solution to removing the borders from the printed images… (It wasn’t. which is why I did not Read more →
A gallery of the digital pages (In the way I arranged them for printing, not the proper reading order >_<)
I think, in the end, my zine turned out to be a good extension of my POV project…
