Zine part 2 (Reseach & Final)

Before I continue to my final process and outcome of Zine part 2, here is my link to my infographic from part 1:

RESEARCH- https://oss.adm.ntu.edu.sg/a160025/project-2-part-1-zine-neighbourhood-explorer-research/
FINAL- https://oss.adm.ntu.edu.sg/a160025/infographic-process-and-final-project-2-part-1/



Following my infographic, i wanted to follow the colour scheme of different shades of red. I decided to stick to yellow, orange and red for my background and decided to do a watercolour wash for all the spreads.

These are the backgrounds i used by using the watercolour brush on AI and then mixing it together



I thought of this cover page at the end of my different spreads so as to tie the illustrations and background altogether.


Initially i just wanted to illustrate this obese lady on this spread only, but i decided to bring her along in all the spreads so as to make it more vibrant and fun.


Before- this was my test print and i felt that it was too dark and the readability is unclear. The background wasn’t very distinct in terms of water colour as well.

Final- Since i decided to add the obese woman in, i wanted to make my illustrations clearer thus i added a black outline to the mountains/hills to make it more distinct as compared to the previous one. I changed the watercolour sun and moon to something more illustrative as well.

For the content wise, i decided to incorporate the routine from my infographic to the middle spread so as to make the zine a more objective one linking to Redhill.


For this last spread, i wanted to add in recipes that is healthy for snacks and meals but i decided to go with small food type that can be snacked on in the everyday basis. I added the benefits of these food and show the transformation of the lady through a route to “good eating habits”.

As for fonts, i decided to write my own for the titles and headers, so as to give it a more cohesive look to the zine.

YAY thanks for reading, finally ended 2D and I’ve really learnt a lot this semester and i think it was really interesting and i hope i had improved on my digital skills HAHAHAH 🙂 Thanks for the great 2 Semster Joy!! :))



3D Project 2: Conceptual Object Final

Most people see hair as a waste after they cut them in salons but yet why do people not see animals fur or birds feather as waste? Instead, we use them as clothing pieces for textures and prints, jackets, pillows and floor rugs.

Therefore, i decided to work with HUMAN HAIR that are cut away and left on the floor in salons and critique on hair as waste since no one actually use hair for anything purposeful.  I mean, even hair extensions and wigs are mostly not made out of real human hair, they are either synthetic fibres or horse hair (another animal!!)

Then, i thought of the fact that people go for hair for hope to shave their heads for a purposeful reason but yet the hair itself is a WASTE in the end cause nobody would actually collect hair. Despite the fact that hair is something somewhat significant to hairdressers just cause they do it for a living, the hair they cut everyday are ultimately thrown away as a waste as well.

Thus, i decided to make a pillow for this conceptual object cause it is mainly something we lie on everyday when we sleep, and since we don’t mind lying on goose feather pillow or cotton, why not lie on HAIR??


For material wise, i wanted something that is clear so as to directly show people that yes, its a pillow that has hair inside. Therefore, i chose to use a plastic material since if cloth is being used, the hair would all pass through the cloth and it wont stay inside the cloth. Plus, by using plastic, it kinda looked like those inflatable pillows we buy which is initially what i wanted to use but then i couldn’t find clear ones, it’s all either coloured or patterned… And besides, the small hole for us to inflate the pillow wouldn’t be able to fit hair into it either.


Making a pillow seemed too simple although the process of sealing the freaking plastic together and making sure it stays is damn hard especially when hair keeps sipping through the tiny holes. I only manage to seal when i add lesser hair into the plastic.

Then, to make it look not so easy and simple, i decided to make 2 covers for the pillow WITH MORE HAIRRRR!! These are some of the pictures i captured during the process:

for the pillow, to give it more form and shape inside so that it doesn’t look like a chunk of hair, i threw in pony tails directly and i tried to braid it as well.


a GIF for my end product! :))


Overall, pretty satisfied and i had fun with this project! :))
