“I hear and I forget, I see and I remember. I do and I understand.” —CONFUCIOUS

O B J E CT I V E Use your senses to research your environment or habitat. Create a book about what you see, hear, touch and smell as you go about your daily routine. The look and feel of this book should reflect a central theme or concept developed from your observations.

A P P R OA C H This book is my three weeks sound journey through the city San Francisco. I went to nine places, recording everything I could hear, then visualized the sound into a graphic poem, which I called Sound Odyssey. The images represent my impression of the city as a giant yellow and black painting overlaid with various cultures, races, languages and emotions.

“Everything has beauty but not everyone can see it.” —CONFUCIOUS

O B J E CT I V E Conceptualize a music experience with a visual solution. Choose a piece of music and create a visual representation of the emotional experience telling the story through a metaphor. Use a projector along with celluloid film and symbolic objects of the metaphor to create images.

A P P R OA C H I chose a song from the 1980s by famous Taiwanese writer Echo. I am touched by the story behind the song—suffering from the loss of a husband and cherishing the memories of every moments spent together. Each time I hear this song, I deeply feel the mood in the melody which is portrayed with watery type.

“Everything has beauty but not everyone can see it.” —CONFUCIOUS

O B J E CT I V E Choose a defunct or dying brand and redesign its brand identity to fit a future vision. Research the brand history, analyze the potential audience, and structure the future vision and brand direction. The main goal is to create a fresh visual identity which follows the soul of the brand and helps the brand turn a new leaf for its new vision.

A P P R OA C H I chose to rebrand HUMMER. The public image of HUMMER gives a negative superficial impression to most Americans due to its military functional sports vehicle branding, I decided to associate the brand HUMMER with mental strength to match the strong look of the vehicle. To represent mental strength, I used a bold type face and images to balance physical and mental strength.

“Better a diamond with a flaw than a pebble without.” —CONFUCIOUS

O B J E CT I V E Develop prototypes for interactive solutions. Design a brand new app. Research and explore the possibilities and limitations of the user experience design and apply them to this new mobile app.

A P P R OA C H There are many food apps for all kinds of dishes and flavors. People can easily order meals to fulfill their cravings, but there are no such apps to order desserts. I designed the Gusto app which allow users to choose a chef and place orders for desserts. Users can also select their favorite flavors and ingredients.

“It does not matter how slowly you can go as long as you do not stop.” —CONFUCIOUS

O B J E CT I V E Plan a type systems that can flow through different stories, themes, and observations. This project translates a story from audio program This American Life into a print and digital book.

A P P R OA C H The theme of my book is about returning to childhood. The biggest difficulty was how to visualize the stories based on a different cultural background, so I did a lot of research on American children's lives during the 90s. The book includes the stories and memories of five different people. In the end, everyone must move forward because no one can return to childhood.
