01 DAUGHTER “Daughter� was a project based off of a record cover design I made exploring conceptual thinking & the conceptual process. Along with the record cover & vinyl record, I designed merchandise to go along with it. The items include a promotional gig poster, t-shirts, buttons, tote bags, & a VIP backstage pass. This conceptual thinking based project helped me realize that it is one of my favorite & preffered ways to approach design.


02 REMEMORY Rememory is a memory game meant to encourage attention to detail & challenge how much information a person could successfully retain in their heads. The more a player remembers, the further & quicker ahead they advance to the finish line. This project explored interaction design & really went in depth into taking consideration & observing how people approach, react, & learn from things. It demonstrated how the designe heavily affects the success or failure of a users understanding & learning from something.


RULES

If the GUESSER answers any questions incorrectly, there are no penalties, they simply don’t get to advance forward 1 spot for that question.

How to Play

REMEMORY

The players will begin by selecting the first “GUESSER”, who will be memorizing the other players’ cards. All players, except for the GUESSER will draw a MEMORY card and show them to the GUESSER Once the guesser has decided he/she has had enough time to remember the objects/words on the cards, he/she will indicate that the players can flip their cards around.

Each of the players with a MEMORY card will take turns asking the GUESSER any detailed question about their own card (i.e. “What were the color of the stripes?”, “How many triangles were there?”, etc.) After the GUESSER finishes answering all of the players’ questions, he/she will get to move their player game piece forward on the board the same number amount of questions he/she answered correctly. .

If the GUESSER moving forward on the board lands on a BONUS spot, he/she will get to draw another MEMORY card, giving him/her the privilege of advancing additional spots forward on the board during that turn. The single MEMORY card will be passed around amongst the other players, each asking 1 memory question and the player who drew the BONUS card will get to advance as many spots as the questions . Move forward 2 spots

BONUS

DUAL

he/she answers correctly. If the GUESSER lands on a ORANGE SPOT on the board that says MOVE FORWARD, he/she will get to move forward the amount of spots indicated on that particular ORANGE SPOT If the GUESSER lands on a DUAL SPOT on the board, he/she will have the opportunity to have a dual with a their selected opponent. All players will take turns being the GUESSER until 1 player reaches the END spot first, becoming the winner.

03 Infiniti was a project exploring packaging through a constructivist point of thinking. My idea was to design packaging for the Infiniti black camera, which is meant to be fairly small & easy to travel with & carry around anywhere you go. Its capabilities along with its variation of available lenses are supposed to allow you to capture the small, the big, & an infinite ammount of moments & places that you desire.

PULSE


0 5 PULSE

Pulse is a music magazine inspired by my early love for music, as well as Pitchfork website & David Carson’s RayGun designs.I particularly grew up being intrigued by indie, rock, & a lot of experimental sounds, which sort of influenced the overall feel of the magazine. Once I saw David Carson’s desings of the RayGun spreads I saw the same edgyness & experimental sounds of the music I listened to being reflected & it heavily inspired me to do a cleaner version of something similar to RayGun that would essentially combine the edgyness of David Carson’s design with the cleaner & more legible aspect of Rolling Stone, CMJ, & other music magazines.

Chealsea Wolfe Speaks About Full Band Album


It’s RAINING BOWIE rip bowie David Bowie lived many lives. He was completely capable of transforming from blues-loving Davie Jones to rock & roll alien Ziggy Stardust to the dapper Thin White Duke with ease. Even until his death in January of 2016, the singer, performer, actor and fashion icon continued to reinvent his image and sound, ending his career with the dark, reflective Blackstar that served as a parting gift for fans who did not yet know about his struggle with cancer.

Over the years, Bowie’s fashion was a reflection of his personal rebirth, the killing of his past and the beginning of a new era. Take a look a back at the development of the artist in the nearly 50 years of evolution.

Kevin: Well, judging from the artwork on the new album, I had my theories that you were attempting to document the fabled appearance of the “Angel of Mons.”

Mike: Yes. Kevin: What was so profound about that story? Chris: Well, the story behind the picture is that, in World War I, there was a group of French troops in a trench. In trench warfare, there’s not much movement except back and forth through the trenches. And one night, after a really fierce battle, they all looked up at the sky and they thought they saw an angel in the clouds. They all reported seeing it, or at

tion. What did you guys do before Explosions in the Sky?

Michael: I played in bands. Up until I was 19 years old, you

know, just playing in high school bands. Actually, Mark and I played in another Austin band before Explosions in the Sky.

Chris: I moved down here from Chicago about two months before I met the band to go to school. Munaf: The three of us-- Mark, Michael and myself-- are

from a small town in Texas called Midland. We grew up there and we all moved to Austin at different times-- I moved up here to be close to my friends. Then, Chris just popped into the picture.

Mark: We also played in a band in Midland. Munaf: Yeah, so I’ve

Mark: We’ve actually scored two films for filmmaker friends of ours. Munaf: I really like the idea of

taking an individual story and translating it musically. I don’t know if you remember the Russian sailors that crashed into the bottom of the ocean about a year ago. The Russian submarine or whatever. Well, we wrote a song around that which hopefully will show up on the next record. It’s called “Six Days at the Bottom of the Ocean,” which is how

rence,

PULSE: When did you start making music?a

Chelsea Wolfe: My dad

was in a country band while I was growing up and he had a home studio. So when I was around nine, I started writing and recording songs, and I never really stopped. But for some reason it never seemed like an option for me to be a musician. It was a very long time until I took it seriously.

CW: I can’t really stick to one genre-- I like to experiment ent sounds and my voice as an instrument. And as much as I like music with intense energies, I also love old country like Hank Williams. And I love Neil Young and Townes Van Zandt. It’s part of who I am. I have folk roots ing back and forth between these PULSE: I noticed you thank

people did. So the past few years when I actually started listening to records and discovering musicians and authors and comedians that I really loved, I felt compelled to tribute to them. It was a long time coming to have these strong who could draw forth familiar emotions from me.

We found this old abandoned hotel in the Bay Area, it was a room overnight and just experienced the place, wandered the halls and discovered stories of the history. It used to be a brothel and all the rooms there. Visual aesthetic is something important to me and something I want to explore even more.

PULSE: When I’ve seen you live, you per-

CW: Being a singer and songwriter and some-

one who records music comes naturally to me, but being a performer is something that came second. It took me a long time to feel comfortable with the actual physical visual aspect of playing veil was a nod to funeral marches and the mood of my music at the time, but I realized it helped me to be able to be up there and feel sort of obscured or blank, so it was more about the sound and what people saw when they closed their eyes. of 2011; it was a little bit symbolic for me. I still struggle with these same issues, though I’ve gotten better at dealing with it.

I was also thinking about how women used to get sent to insane asylums and lobotomized for ridiculous reasons like "promiscuity." Another new song, “Feral Love”, was inspired by a passage from one of my favorite books Sons and Lovers [by D.H. Lawrence], where the characters are talking about what it would be like for a wild open space, or to be someone who’s used to the open space and then to be suddenly surrounded by trees. It’s about animal instincts and exploring the idea of love as an animal.

PULSE: You thank D.H. Lawrence in the especially important writer to you?

CW: Yes. He’s known for his themes of mother-son relationships in English coal mining families, but I read him and notice the unique way he writes about nature-- it’s so descriptive and instinctual. It’s helped me understand the

my favorite books, and the music that plays in my head while I’m reading.
