Task: To develop graphic forms that convey the notion of hope.The graphics created will be assembled into a hanging mobile for application in a healthcare environment to lighten the atmosphere of the hospital.
Concept: Hope to me symbolizes a dream. I remember hoping for many things when I was young, such as being a Disney princess or be able to fly and etc, and that was the naïve fun young times!
To lighten up the serious and sad mood at the hospital, I wanted my mobile to be more lighthearted and remind them of younger days where we feel that anything could happen, and a magical place where its trouble free! Therefore I aligned my mobile along the theme of “where all magical things happens”
For each graphic form I’ve done up, there is a quote behind it.
- Castle on the Cloud
- Reaching for the Star
- Soaring into the skies
These are all hopeful quotes which I want to bring across my mobile, and I think it did! Here’s the graphic forms I’ve used in digital copy
This is the look of the final mobile! It looks way way way better than the previous one hahaha
I shifted the placement of each wizard a little, to show them flying around the castle in different directions.
Catch it being hung up at the ADM Library too!

Reflection on Assignment 1
I think this assignment was more of us trying to thing in graphic forms that’s not very illustrative, to prep us more for logo and branding design. I actually think the toughest part was co-ordinating the colours as it’s hard to keep colours consistent yet showing contrast. I also had a pretty tough time finalizing the graphic forms I want to use, and to make sure that it blended well together, while keeping in mind the positive and negative space. Overall, I had a pretty fun time doing this project!
