Typography Potrait_Process (Part 2)

Mind map (Finalise)




After trying to sketch out a few of my idea, finally I chose the design below which depicted my name ‘X’ as a STARTING point while ‘T’ as an ENDING point of a run. Oherwise, the rest alphabet of my name ‘IAN’ formed a shape of a running man means that I am running toward the end and the man will be done in motion.

The next step is colour chosen. First, I just random chose the colours which I like BUT I like it was meaningless in the end. I am thinking what colours I can use in this design and finally I got these colours. MALAYSIA FLAG COLOURS-RED,YELLOW,BLUE AND WHITE colours for the ‘X’ means that I was came from Malaysia. SINGAPORE FLAG COLOURS-RED AND WHITE for the character ‘T’ means that I am now staying at Singapore for studying art.12754925_1133494796674529_1390145428_o12736557_1133494766674532_893686144_o12722319_1133494740007868_17671757_o

Cold Surface, Warm inside

At fisrt, I am trying to use cat’s character(as in it is cool towards the strangers but it is royal to its owner). After consultation, Mimi gave me suggestion it didn’t give a sense that I am cold surface, it is more like I like cats.xiantian cat2 xiantian cat1

So, I decided to change my idea by using other cold elements like ice or something.

I also did some research about Ice typography.

Poor time management:

I am very a poor time management student as I like to watching drama when I am free and my project always do in last minute. So, I must express this concept in this typography potrait.


Colours chosen: For the clock, I am going to choose primary colours, there were two secondary colours intersect within the whole clock. It gave a sense of the many events in life, where they all overlap each other, making it harder for me to juggle my commitments.

Cannot be alone

For the last one, I decided to make the medium more interesting, so I combined photography into it. I took a pose which look alike the alphabet “A”.

Colour chosen: Their was two layers of colour theme for this design, At first, there is no colour for the name. After push it up, there are the blue and yellow which they are complementary colours. Blue is a colour that speaks of my sad feelings when I was previously alone. Yellow is a brighter colour where I am now more outgoing and more happy with friends beside me.
