2D2 Project: Que Sera


Important things to take note of:

  • Get the essence right
  • have a simple yet informed background

What job do I want in the future (choose 4):

  1. Hitman for dishonored – Gun, Target, Suit, gloves
  2. National Team Player – Rugby ball, field lines, boots, jersey (my first love)Football Players, The Century Illustrated Monthly Magazine Cover, Nov. 1909, by J. C. Leyendecker:                     For rugby, I have only started playing the sport for less than a year but I love it so much I aspire to be a national team player for the Singapore team. Therefore, I would like to translate this passion into typography.
  3. Bath enthusiast – bathroom tiles, candles, bubbles, soaps
  4. Humble carpenter – wood, apron, shavings, tool belt
  5. Global explorer (by sea) – hull of boat, float, knots, sail :

    Since I was young I have always loved the deep blue waters be it in the sink or the Singapore seas. As I grew older I have always wondered beyond Singapore and aspired to be a well-weathered traveler. Therefore, I dream to be one of the many sea-explorers.
    As I research more of what style to emulate as I go about showing this dream of mine, I came across a collection of typographic images ->
    As you can see for the V, it takes on a shape of a hull of a boat/ship. This graphic style is apparently flat lay and it is very new yet familiar to me. I have always seen it on Pinterest pages however never got about to do it. As I researched further I came across these artworks by Malika Favre – On The Draw.
    Malika Favre recently landed something of a dream brief from the Canary Islands Tourist Board. Along with six other illustrators, she was chosen to travel to the islands and to create artwork inspired by the trip. The project, On the Draw, was curated by the Tenerife based design studio 28ymedio to help promote tourism to …

    These Artworks thus pushed me to take on my very first illustrator project which I will cover in the process post.

  6. Botanist – studies of flowers/plants in general, ‘fig 2.1’, cross sections
    This passion of mine only started sprouting as I cultivated my watercolor skills. I have always liked the layout and aesthetics of Botanical studies – the layout of the document to the cross-sections of some flowers.Vintage Botanical Print Food Plant Chart Art: Attention to detail: botanical illustrations by Carl Linnaeus: Image result for botanical illustrations black and whitevintage mushroom botanical printbotanical drawings pinus pinea - Buscar con Google: Image result for botanical illustrations herbs
    After researching on various botanical layouts as seen above, I went on to further research on plants in typography as I find out which style I would want to use for my final piece.

    After looking at different ways I could reimagine the plants to be used to spell my initials, I realized that using the natural forms of foliage as seen in the typography compilation is the most natural way to manipulate the plants.
  7. Neon sign maker – wavy neon glass lettering Neon Signs | See more unique neon light ideas here http://www.delightfull.eu/en/graphic-lamps/index.php #unique #lamps: DIY inspiration-Neon MessagesNew York's hottest club is CLUB HORCRUX. #ihadto #imnotsorryeither | #neon: Neon signs are pretty rad! Specially when incorporated with cool interior design. Here are our top picks including our own. Neon by Penny Farthing Design House. This here is own own neon sign placed over a wall of greenery in our showroom. Some people were a little skeptical about making such a statement in a wedding accessories studio but to me it just felt right and I love the results. Just because it's bridal doesn't has to be all traditional and classic. More and more brides are enjoying...
    At first, I wanted to start a project on how I wanted to be a glass blower as I have always been in awe of their workmanship. However, I found it difficult to capture glass in any typography given my amateur level on illustrator. But what struck me was that neon signs were also a part of glass art.
