Hello Profile My name is Euri Oh and I am interested in making life more enjoyable. A fuss free life is what I am after. Simplifying words and images is what I do best. Making things fun to interact with is the essence of what I enjoy the most.

Introduction This portfolio showcases eight selected works that were completed from Fall 2015 to Spring 2016 at Portland State University. The following projects vary from booklets, magazines, posters and branding.

Calling Brio Vinyl Covers Project goals Design 12" and 7" vinyl covers Intended audience 路 Musicians, hip hop lovers, and creatives 路 Ages 16-24 Solutions and concepts To capture the essence of Amin茅's electronic/hip hop/African tribal blend, I painted a chaotic abstract pattern for the 12 inch. For the single, I called upon his lyrics to create a maze motif. For his logo, I took inspiration from a scar on his arm.

Type in 20: Typography: A Matter of Life and Death Richard Hunt In a medical environment, the correct dosage and specific medicines is essential to a successful outcome. Typography, whether on paper or on screen, is normally part of a communication chain that can lead to harmful or fatal errors. Errors that are trivial in other circumstances become crucial. Legibility studies historically either focus the ability for the viewer to distinguish one alphabetic form from another, or focus on speed, retention, and ease of reading of text. 3:25 PM

Type in 20: Greek Yogurt & The Melting Pot of Food Packaging in America Terrance Weinzierl Grocery shopping is difficult for me, as I’m seduced by the thousands of typographically rich packages, labels, and brands, which are constantly changing. In this lighthearted presentation, I talk about the food trend with Greek yogurt and how it is reflected in food packaging. How Greek does it need to look? Everything from ancient Greek pastiche to distorted Myriad appears on the shelves. I’ll set the visual landscape by showing examples of typographically successful packaging like: Bolthouse Farm’s lettering by Jill Bell, Industrial Revolution-looking smoked bacon, and the quadruple outlined and outer-glowing sugar cereal. I’ll also touch on successful pieces that don’t use ‘Chop Suey lettering’ and show examples of how you could design a package for Thai Tomato Coconut soup, for example, and not need to resort to cliche Latin that looks like the Thai script.

Illustration Revisions

THE REVISION PROCESS During this step, I took my favorite elements from the initial drawing stage and incorporated them together. From the class critiques, I got feedback that my illustrations did not work together as a system. To unify them, I repeated the same background elements and kept the same line weights throughout all the objects that were drawn.

Paper, Binding & Concept Exploration

THE EXPLORATION PROCESS Before this project, I had no prior experience with thinking about layout, grid, or telling a story in a booklet context. The first print out was not successful because I had not thought about how this book would be used in context. To make good use of my illustrations, I needed to tell a story. This is why I decided to combine my illustrations with relevant articles. The photos on the bottom row show my first attempt at creating this magazine.

Project Evaluation

This publication is about the objects in my backpack and the emotions they trigger within me. Each object is illustrated and accompanied by an article that speaks about the emotion that it represents. This magazine’s audience are women ages 17-25. Each illustration is composed of a color palette consisted of three colors. The colors are chosen to match the emotion that the illustration represents. For example, for the “regret” illustration, I chose a dark purple to resemble the dampened mood of buyer’s remorse. To make the purple stand out, I paired it with a contrasting green. I selected Clearface, a warm, curvy serif typeface for my headers to mimic the wavy patterns. For my body copy and secondary headers, I took a risk and chose two san serifs, Karla and Apercu. I chose Karla because it has the same approachable personality as Clearface. Apercu was used for the quotes to add texture to the page, without being distracting. Although using three typefaces in one magazine is “pushing it”, they all work together harmoniously and do not compete with one another. The style of illustration harks back to the era of my

childhood (1990s). My target audience is able to connect and relate the vibrant colors and wavy patterns since they have likely also witnessed this era unfold. The background elements of the illustrations are kept consistent to keep the spotlight on the object that is featured. The written content of each spread speaks about the emotion that I feel for every object. For the pocketknife illustration, the chosen emotion was “secure”. To help support my concept, I chose an article about the fear of walking home alone as a woman. This article is directly related to how I feel about my pocketknife and why I carry it around with me. To improve this magazine, I would rethink and expand the overall concept of the magazine. The overarching theme of this publication could be about emotions and how one deals with them day to day. Perhaps the spreads that I have now could be a section of this publication. For every issue, this section could feature a designer and interview them about the objects they carry in their bag/ backpack. With these changes, the magazine would be more substantial and serve a broader audience.
