I have always believed that silence is a strength. Quietness can make people concentrate on solving problems. When you are quiet, you can hear an inner symphony. Because of the rapid development of society, many people are unable to slow their own pace. Many people no longer listen to their inner voice, so I hope that people who are looking at my portfolio can take a quiet moment to pause in this noisy world.

REGRETS, I HAVE HAD A FEW.

OBJECTIVE

This project is to design an 80-100 page book. The content of this book comes from This American Life. I chose the story named “Regrets, I have Had a Few.” There are three short stories in this book. These three stories are all about regrets. I think regret is a strong emotion for everyone, which I wanted to show it in my design.

APPROACH

This is a book without images. I wanted to make a different kind of book, so I explored type as image. I tried a lot of fonts such as Arno, Gill Sans, Univers, etc. In the end, I chose to use Univers because Univers is a font without emotion. But for me, a non-emotional font can often create a more emotional reaction. For the web design, I kept the same style as the book. There no pictures on the website because I wanted it to be consistent with the book.

BEDLAM

OBJECTIVE

This project required us to design posters. For this project, we needed to choose a word to express with images. I chose bedlam as the word in the end. We needed to think of a special way to express the word. For this project, my inspiration came from my daily life.

APPROACH

I used three ways to express the word bedlam. One was an outer expression, one was an inner expression, and other one combined the outer and inner expression. For the outer, I used daily life to express the word. I scanned shoelaces, newspapers, some plants and some cigarettes. For the inner, I used the mad mind to express it. I used abstract pictures and some unrecognizable text to embody a mad mind. For the last one, I combined light and shadow to show the word in color.

HELP THAI ELEPHANTS

OBJECTIVE

For this project, we needed to choose a topic and then research and explore the topic. I chose the theme animal protection. After that, we had to do a series of designs for the theme across different media, such as a logo, posters, billboards, an app, and a booklet.

APPROACH

In Thailand, many elephants are forced to perform in front of tourists. Most people do not know that the process of elephant training in Thailand is very cruel. I wanted to expose the cruelty involved in training these elephants and call on people to protect them. Because this is a serious social issue, I used black and white photos to represent the entire project. In order to make all of the projects look like a system, I used consistent visual elements, such as text boxes, diagonal lines and a bold typeface.

EAG [ EVERYTHING ABOUT GRAPHIC DESIGN ]

OBJECTIVE

This project required us to design an app for a theme. When I first started learning about graphic design, I had difficulty finding learning software from the app store, so I decided to make an app about graphic design.

APPROACH

For this app, I needed to consider the user's experience. This is challenging, so I found a lot of people to test the app's usefulness. I chose red as my main color to express enthusiasm and passion. I hope that every beginner can develop a passion to learn new things. I chose a simple layout design because I wanted users to quickly understand the app. This will make it easier for users to use the app and learn about graphic design.

SLEEP-TALKING

OBJECTIVE

This project required us to design a book. The contents of this book could be anything. We needed to record things that we saw, heard, touched and smelled as we went about our daily routines and incorporate those concepts into the book.

APPROACH

I chose my dreams as the theme of this book. I often have strange and funny dreams when I'm asleep. I think that dreams are a magical place because you can experience things that you cannot experience in your daily life, so I decided to record my dreams. In this book, I recorded a total of 7 interesting dreams. I combined illustrations with a simple layout. I hid part of each illustration to create the feeling of suspense because I wanted to make the whole book interesting.

iBeer

OBJECTIVE

This project required us to design an app for a theme. I chose 3 themes. They are plants, beer and graphic design. Finally, I chose to do an app about beer because I wanted to let more people know about craft beer. We needed to make a complete set of interfaces and link each interface together.

APPROACH

Until I found craft beer last year, I did not like beer. I think craft beer and ordinary industrial beer are different. They use different brewing methods, which can explain why craft beer tastes great. I asked some friends, but they did not know what craft beer was. This is why I decided to make an app about beer. I chose the colors green and yellow to represent the colors of hops and beer. For the style of the app, I used a simple layout because I hoped this app would be convenient for users to read and learn what craft beer was.

ABIGAIL'S FLOWERS

OBJECTIVE

This project required us to choose a simple brand. This brand did not need to be well-known, so I chose a small roadside poster. This poster was for a flower shop. We needed to design posters, a website and a booklet for the brand.

APPROACH

At first, I chose a flower shop, a pest control company, a hot dog shop, and a handicraft shop. In the end, I chose the flower shop because I think that flowers can bring people closer together. This is a warm project, so I chose the three primary colors as my main colors because all the colors come from the three primary colors. I used a circle as my visual element because it usually gives people a feeling of satisfaction. The goal was for the colors and visual elements to make customers feel warm.
