ILLUS | sexercise process


Needless to say, I HAD TONS OF FUN WORKING THIS ASSIGNMENT!! It was good to be able to come up with a concept that I want to work on, all with the aim of having fun! I wanted to work on a project that will definitely not be allowed in Singapore, and I thought that a sex festival will be pretty fun. If it’s ever allowed in Singapore it’ll be like a mass orgy so nope HAHAHA. I started by coming up with a Pinterest board and getting inspirations for the illustration styles I was going for, sex-related humour and some packaging designs. Initially I had some trouble with the illustration style I was going for, as I felt that it wasn’t similar to my references. However after some amendments and learning how to work photoshop, I managed to somewhat get it to look similar. From this project, I think my illustrating skills got better and I know how to use it in a design perspective!

I really enjoyed this module where I get free creative reign to illustrate whatever I want!

ILLUS | sexercise process

I did up the digitalization of the elements I drew and used a pencil brush with a little texture.

I started with the illustration of “SEXERCISE” – which I wanted to use as a pattern and also to be printed on the outside of the box.

This is the line strokes of the letters I wanted to use.

I initially came up with this for the SEXERCISE text, but realised that it did not match the theme well and re-did it accordingly to the style.

I think that these looks way better and more consistent with the style I was going for.

These are the digital illustrations of toys and body poses.


I added in fill colours for the elements and started making patterns for the different illustrated items I was going to work on.


Sexercise Kit Box

For the illustrated pattern of the box, I wanted to just use sex toys, without the body poses. The outer side has a white base with outlines of toys, while the inner side is a patterned box.

This is the die cut of the outer box

This is the die cut of the inner box.

This is the pattern of the inner box!

Wrapping Paper

To “wrap” the items inside the box I came up with a wrapping paper design, and wanted to print on tissue paper. However due to printing issues, I found the second best option and printed it on wrapping paper instead!

I used a mixture of sex poses and sex toys for this pattern.

Condom Box

I titled the condom “OH MY JIZZ!” as we all know what condoms are used for *winx and wanted to use it in a way we say “oh my god!”

For the box, I used a few elements to design the cover of the box, and included information that are found on normal condom boxes.

Condom Individual Packaging

I planned for 4 condoms to be in a condom box, and thus designed 4 individual condom packaging, with just a difference in variation of illustrations on it.

Tissue Box

For the tissue, I intended to use a more unique packaging approach, to give it a curve instead. I only used body poses as the pattern for this item, as humans are the ones that will get wet and need tissues HAHAHA. I created a die-cut of a boob outline as the opening for the user to get the tissue, and also input text of situations where tissues will be needed after.

Invitation Card

A 2-sided card, one side consists of an illustration of sex toys and the word “SEXERCISE” and the other, event details and some information, with a patterned background.

This is the illustrated side of the card!

This is the card with information of the event.

Initially I came up with a one-sided design, but after consulting Lisa, I agreed that there were too many things going on and could have been separated into 2 sides instead.

Here’s the initial design!

Sexercise Guide

I made a guide booklet for SEXERCISE participants to try with a partner, which are yoga sex poses which can be used as sex poses to try as well.

The background of every page has a pattern of sex poses.

There are 10 sex poses with a rough guide on how to get to that position.

These are the designs of my applied illustration items and click here for the mock-up!

For the final assignment, we were tasked to come up with an event and were allowed to get creative with it! With that, I decided to work on a theme which will probably NEVER be allowed in Singapore HAHAHA.

The event is called SEXERCISE, and the theme revolves a sex festival where people loves sex and sees it as a form of exercise, rather than just being a form of affection of love.

Target Audience of event:

  1. Adults aged 21 to 30 years old
  2. Love having sex or the concept of sex
  3. Workout fanatics
  4. Interested in meeting other like-minded individuals who are sexually active
  5. Interested in knowing more about sex positions / trying to lighten up sex life

These are the 2 personas I came up with whom will be interested in the event.

I was thinking of having a festival kit for anyone whom signed up for the event / purchased a ticket. Within the festival kit, there will be the invite cards and some essentials that they will probably need during the event! I started conceptualizing on what items to be placed there, and elements for the illustration.

The illustrated items I will be doing are

  1. Invite Card
  2. Festival Kit Box
  3. Wrapping Paper (to wrap the goodies in one)
  4. Condom Boxes
  5. Indiv Condom Packaging
  6. Tissue Box
  7. Guidebook

From there, I came up with a moodboard of the overall vibe I wanted this theme to give off, as well as the illustration style.

The overall vibe I’m going for is a play on sexual humour, adding a little quirky treats here and there. The colour scheme I’m going for is abit “crazy” and vibrant, creating contrasts. I also included a colour of skin, to retain the “human-ness”.

The illustration style I wanted to go with was with the usage of strokes linework and texture in the colouring of the elements. I wanted to show it looking more organic, looking like it’s hand drawn.

I found a variety of sex toys and a photo which shows yoga poses which can also be sex poses. I wanted to use these elements to create patterns for my applied illustrations.

I also found an illustration of alphabets formed by humans, and wanted to reference “SEXERCISE” from there!

I came up with some thumbnail sketches of how my illustrations was going to be, and proceed to develop them.

As I am thinking of doing patterns for my applied illustrations, I didn’t come up with pencil compositions for my items, but pencil sketches of the elements I wanted to input in my illustrations.

From there, I started digitalizing them! Click here for my process!
