In my illustration, I took a minimalistic approach. Hoping to achieve a simple yet visually striking composition. By applying the figure-ground technique inspired by the famous Israel illustrator, Noma Bar, I managed to use both the positive and negative spaces in my work. Silk screen printing was executed after finalising my illustration.

You feeling ill?
Iâ€™m spending this weekend in bed
My various illustrations are hand drawn, scanned in and digitally edited. I experimented with different framing and cropping of my images to achieve the best visual. In order to get the ideal atmosphere right, I paid much attention to the emotions of the content. 1 10 9,
The final outcome will be a comic book, consisting of 13 personâ€™s work. It will be a shared effort, which I contributed in designing the back cover, and also both the inside covers. The concept is to keep the back cover simple, so as to not take away focus from the front.
SECOND A packaging design project done in tribute to the famous astronaut and second person to have ever set foot on the moon, Buzz Aldrin... Who was regrettably once an alcoholic.

The focus is to effectively communicate his identity without the use of his name or image.
Second’s single malt clear whiskey is from the unique Second’s family distillery in the highlands of Tennessee. The first of it’s kind, founded in 1969. Some claimed that

the secret recipe to Second’s clear whiskey originates from the moon, discovered by an American astronaut during his mission in space. The discovery of a drink which contributes more happiness to mankind than that of a star.
HOUSTON WE HAVE A PROBLEM_
Second’s single malt clear whiskey is from the unique Second’s family distillery in the highlands of Tennessee. The first of it’s kind, founded in 1969 Some claimed that the secret recipe to Second’s clear whiskey originates from the moon, discovered by an American astronaut during his mission in space. The discovery of a drink which contributes more happiness to mankind than that of a star. Today, Second remains as the sole distillery of clear whiskey - and still uses the highest quality production methods, including traditional washbacks finished in traditional quarter ctasks. With a perfect taste that will momentarily take gravity away. Here bottled as Second’s Single Malt Clear Whiskey.
FRUTIGER To design a type cube that relates to the Frutiger typeface.

Frutigerâ€™s goal was to create a sans serif typeface with the organic and proportional aspects of Gill Sans suited to the needs of Charles de Gaulle.
Cube Size: 80mm x 80mm Material: Matt Art paper, 150 gsm Software: Adobe InDesign
The aim is to create a typographic layout using InDesign. It is essential to look into the consistency for flow of reading within the cube itself.
THE LOOT The LOOT is an online store, which can also be known as a blogshop started by a friend. Which seeks to promote affordable and trendy male & female apparel of great quality and exquisite design. This friend approached me to create an identity for the store.
Considering that she has no plans for a retail outlet anytime soon, i then suggest that perhaps the logo could be versatile, designed to be able to function as an application icon as well for smartphones, tablets and other mobile devices.

THE FAIRIES A school assignment which i decided on creating a branding identity, along with promotional collateral. Inspired by a poem â€œThe Fairiesâ€? by William Allingham.

Up the airy mountain Down the rushy glen, We darenâ€™t go a-hunting, For fear of little men; Wee folk, good folk, Trooping all together; Green jacket, red cap, And white owlâ€™s feather....... 27, 28

TEN DOSAGE OF INSPIRATIONS An assignment for a saddle stitched, odd book sized documentation of 10 Inspirations for a design student, accompanied with images and body text. 31, 32
Designers are heavily attracted by design trends and influence. They are very contented with adopting ready made resources in their design, and even easier to imitate. Creativity is thus somewhat loosing its ground.
DISCOVERING THE WORK BEHIND THE WORK Orientation 2012 T-Shirt & Tote Bag Design Contest. LASALLE College of The Arts. The Design should only be limited to 2 colours & the schoolâ€™s logo must be included. I was awarded a 1st Runner-Up for the contest, unfortunately my design was not chosen to be featured on the T-shirts & goodie bags.
Great art is achieved through hard work and creative ideas shared around us all. This design depicts a large tree, which is never easy to plant. However with elements of rain and sunlight, plus the hard work of a dedicated farmer, it can be achieve. The stained glass effect is inspired by the architecture of Lasalle.
THE NEW PAPER This project requires me to re-design an actual and existing article from The New Paper, 1 x double spread + front cover page with masthead.
