Concept Statement The Idea that to design is to start from nothing not only means that I started as a beginner and grew up to be a graphic designer, it means that we should always start from zero and keep learning. Design is means to be pushed, to be changed, to be passionate, and always remember that nothing goes to waste.

Ps

A good annual report should reflect the company intuitionally. All images and typefaces have to must convey the feeling of the company. I.T is a Hong Kong fashion company. It has trendy fashion and old Hong Kong style. I placed the pictures irregularly and made them look like they were hanging from a wall. I used all the names that the company carries in a type background and used a small opener to contrast with that.

The conference I chose is SDA (Surface Design Association). SDA is an international organization focused on inspiring creativity, encouraging innovation, and inspiring art and design. This organization focuses on fabric design, so I drew a variety of patterns to symbolize fabrics and create a cohesive system throughout all the materials.

My problem is to help international students to reuse their old furniture. As an international student, used furniture always troubled me because most students only use furniture for two or three years. Then they want to sell their used furniture. Meanwhile new students want to buy cheap used furniture, and there is not get a way both parties can meet to do thing. A Refurnish company was created to solve the problem. I designed a system for it.

The word I chose is cloud. I used the idea of flying in a cloud through out the story. The whole book from departure to arrival make the reader feel the sad story. I spent a lot of time drawing patterns to symbolize the clouds and I wrote poetry that fit the story. All the photos are about different cities and the distance between the two people.
