Picture Story Final

in [ Assignment 3 ]

We realised that in the previous work, there were some continuity errors in picture 1 and 2. Also, the picture 3 with the watch could be better with a facial expression of the person feeling frustrated/late.

With that in mind, Meng Hui and I went to re-take some of our shots. Picture 1 now shows the full body of the person, creating an establishing shot. Picture 3 now includes a facial expression. Motion blur was also added to the person and the bus in most of the pictures to create the effect of moving away. Lastly, Picture 8 was re-taken to increase the size and contrast of the text on the iPhone.

NUS Shuttle Bus Map Final

in [ Assignment 6 ]

This is the final version of the shuttle bus map after some minor modifications, such as increasing the space between the bus lines so that they are more legible, and listing down the bus stops in pit-stop format similar to LTA’s bus information.

iN2015 Poster Final

in [ Assignment 4 ]

During consultation, Ms Jing suggested that I choose a more futuristic font instead of a traditional typewriter kind of font. So here’s the final version of the poster, and I decided to change the headline colour to orange/yellow as I think it is more pleasing to the eyes than green.

Postcard Version 3: Final!

in [ Assignment 5 ]

Finally, after so many last minute revisions, I finished the postcard. I decided to choose the “Shinto” colour scheme because the yellow-tone look seems to suit the postcard theme best without being overly glaring or weird looking. It also provides enough contrast for the symbols and is not too boring. Here’s the front:

Some triva: the statues on the first row from left to right: Godness of Mercy, Confucius, Buddha, Ganesha (Hindu Deity), Virgin Mary, Jesus Christ.
The symbols on the second row: Cross (Christainity), Wheel of Dharma (Buddhism), Swastika (Hinduism/Buddhism), Star of David (Judaism).
The symbols on the third row: Star and Crescent (Islam), Khanda (Sikhism), Yin-yang (Taoism), Confucius Institute
The languages on the fourth row: Fo (Chinese for Buddha), YHWH (Hebrew for Yahweh God), Aum (Hindi chant), Dao (Chinese for Taoism), Jesus (English for Yeshua), Allah (Arabic for God)

Postcard Version 3: Colour Scheme

in [ Assignment 5 ]

Ms Jing suggested that I can use some Andy Warhol style. Building upon Ms Jing’s recommendations, I decided to create a Andy Warhol-inspired postcard, using statues, symbols and written languages of Buddhism, Confucianism, Taoism, Christianity, Judaism, Islam, Hinduism and Sikhism. Some of the colour schemes were based on the Adobe Kuler.  The title “Asia – Where Truth Lies” was chosen because the phrase has an oxymoron, pun intended.

Here are the colour schemes, with the names adapted from Kuler:

Postcard Redone Draft

in [ Assignment 5 ]

Based on Zhixiong’s comments, I removed the non-religious icons and here’s what I got. I added a sun-ray-like thing at the back to make it look more interesting, and reduced it to 5 symbols. However I still had some problems with the colours and some of them look quite weird. Couldn’t decide whether a shadow or glow is better, or whether a darker or lighter outline is better.

During consultation, Ms Jing mentioned that the symbols used are of a different type, e.g. statue, building, icon etc. And why is the cross in the middle? Why is Buddha and the Hindu temple rotated? Well I did it for aesthetic reasons to form a ‘curve’ around the words. Looks like this won’t work either. I’ve to re-do again!

Postcard Redone Tryout

in [ Assignment 5 ]

I decided to re-do the postcard from scratch after realising that it is quite difficult to trace human photos. I make used of some of the landmark icons I drew and focused on religion instead. Here’s a postcard with the major religions as a main focus: Buddhism, Christianity, Hinduism and Islam, along with the little landmark drawings of places around Asia. See how many you can recognise! Personally I think the colours are very very awful, running out of inspiration of what colours to choose for the background. Somehow it is too messy. Should it be monotone? Will definitely refine again.

iN2015 Poster Version 2

in [ Assignment 4 ]

With the feedback from the class, I created a second version of the poster. I decided to use green as the colour as it is more associated with “digital” than yellow. I used some distortion/perspective to make the textbooks seem as if they are “downloaded” unto the screen, and now I included a mock screenshot to make the device more obvious. Also, some pixelating effect is added to the textbooks to make them look “digital”. I also decided to reduce the number of words in the copy write-up and make the font sizes bigger. The title font type has also been changed to a more typewriter-like look to fit the overall digital look of the poster.
