WHB Music cover WHB band is a heavy metal rock band, whose music always brings us to another fantasy world. After experiencing their inspiring works, a strong yet smoothly flowing image came up in my mind. I tried to reorganize those pieces of image into a powerful geometric pattern and put other small figures together to create the feeling that shows the spirit of their musics.

RENO GORDON Reno Gordon is a professional DJ in our country. His remix is a fusion of traditional Chinese rhythm and modern beats which is a ‘breakthrough’ in DJ remix. I created a logo for Reno Gordon using the initials (R and G) with loop sign to bring out his fusion style. Moreover, the client prefered a symmetry shape, so I made both letters to hook to each which seems to be similar to the loop sign.

Taipei Fine Arts Museum — exhibition of small and big The exhibition allowed people to discover the interesting things between large size and small size. The designer used unusual proportions on the objects to distort the viewers’ perception. For this

poster, I used two different size persons looking at each other to exaggerate the paradox. By using ‘person’ on the visual identity, the audiences can directly feel the variation of the proportion.

Taiwan Beer has launched cocktails targeting the young people, but I found that the original package design looks unattractive for the young generation. I did some analysis investigating the popular drinks among the youngsters and tried to redesign the can.


COMMERCIAL DESIGN 27

I created four characters representing the young people for different cocktail flavors. They are Hipster, Internet Geek, Sports Lover, and Socialite. The character is divided into

two parts: the upper part is the face and the lower part is the body. Consumers can mix two cans with different design to create their own character. This design not only bring new colors, but also fun to the consumers!

Wang-Chang-Fa —Braised dishes restaurant Wang-Chang-Fa has a long history of its special cuisine and popular among Taiwanese. Moreover, braised dishes are traditional snakes in Taiwan! I use Taiwan’s retro style to interpret the long history of the restaurant. In order to make the design perfect, I do a lot of research to learn the Old-style typography about Chinese character. The chosen colors are the main color appear in early Taiwan’s printed paper.

Icever is a store which sells various drinks and ice cream. The feature of the store is that every drink contains fruits! Sweet and sour is really relaxing in summer! I designed not only its logo but also poster. The strong contrast of the color brings customers to image the sweet and sour of the drinks. And the tilt image of the drink gives some visual experiences for customers to make them more impress of the product.

Jet Flash package design This is a USB package design from Transcend. This is not a real project but a task from World Competition. The time of whole design process is limited — only for 4.5 hours. The task including logo design and package design (including the structure). Because of the limited time, I decided to use most of the time to design the structure of the package. The

material of the package is limited too. It can only use one piece of A3 paper to create a structure. The final structure I design has a special part which can pack the USB without other material and also play a role as a window which makes customers more easy to view the inner product.

This is a red wine package design, which made in the pure village in France. I use the main colors of grape to create the image of nature. Moreover, in order to make a colorful visual image different from the common package on markets, I try to put vivid green on the package to attract attention from customers. In logo design, I put the image of vines in it to make the figures look more natural and fluent. There are two nails on both sides of the logo, it represents the nail on the Oak barrel.

The idea for the cover actually came from the darkroom photography technique in which the photographers use a red light in the darkroom when developing black and white film.

The inner part used the concept of cut and paste, typography, and overlapping to reinterpret Matter’s visual language.

This is a map from dormitory to classroom in Yun-Lin University The aim of this project is to design the unique map for the route from dorm to classroom. I walk back and forth on this route to find some elements different from usual. The shadow is the topic I finally choose. I discover that there is a lots of shadow from other objects accompany my shadow on the way. Moreover, in the middle of the route, there is no tree, no streetlight, so my shadow looks lonely then. I found that Shadow is a key element on the way and also connected to body temperature feeling. Therefore, I visualize the status of the shadow and connect the temperature feeling to create my own map!

New & Old in Taipei This is a zine showing the clash among the new and old things in Taipei. Taiwan had been colonized by many countries so we have a rich historical background. For the visual expression, I used hamburger as the representative of Taiwan’s multicultural environment and three topics are implied in it: food, transportation, architecture.

Bike / MRT The most convenient public transportation in Taipei is MRT. We use it almost everyday and it has facilitated our daily activities. Before MRT was built, however, bike was one of the major transportations in Taipei. Nowadays, these two kinds of transportation coexist in Taipei! Bike was promoted to be a public transportation system which is known as Ubike.

Steam bun & Hamburger Steam bun is one of the traditional breakfasts in our country, but over time new foods and different cuisines were introduced into Taiwan resulting in change in eating habits. Today, hamburger has the same status as our steam bun!

BeiMen / Taipei 101 The tallest building in Taiwan, Taipei 101 which represents advancement and authority, is located in Taipei! Many historical buildings can also be found in Taipei, such as BeiMen which is perfectly reserved in the city. Both of them are popular tourist attractions!

You can easily control the amount of salt and pepper when seasoning your food and open/recap just using a single hand. The design of this spice container is based on the shape of a mice, but this unique design also allows people to think beyond their imagination. The lid knob was designed to resemble a mice ear making users feel like they

The transparency of the glass material represents the sense of trust, while stainless steel provides superior functions and elevates the sense of value. Besides that, the transparent bottle lets the user know the remaining quantity and plays the role of reminding the user to refill the spice.

If the user is in emergency, the receiver will send the alert to the drone and the drone will make sound to inform the others. Since it is designed for extreme sport players, the drone must bear a lot of frictions and bumps. We redesign the structure of the drone to enhance its endurance to collision and also make it easy to take out.
