{PROJECT TITLE}

David Lynch Film Festival Produce all the deliverables of a f ilm for a director. Discover a common thread that appears in each of the chosen director’s f ilms and conceptualize a design that brings it to real life as a campaign for a f ilm festival. Develop a system of deliverables which all capture the essence of the f ilm festival.

{OBJECT IVE}

032 / 03 3

I chose to center the f ilm festival around the director David Lynch, who is known for his darkness, illusions and surreal movies. I decided to use gradient colors and imagery to symbolize reality and dreams. A common theme throughout his movies was characters trapped in their nightmares because they are unable to deal with their fears in the real world. I decided to use gradient colors and imagery to symbolize reality and dreams.

Type Conference To create a hypothetical design conference and design a holistic visual system for it. Show the ability to create a sophisticated visual concept that matches the aim of the conference. The goal is not only to challenge a designer’s ability to demonstrate concepts but also to demonstrate typography skills, all in a highly flexible design system which f its the needs of a design conference.

{OB JECT IVE}

0 92 / 0 93

I created a type design conference called “Know the white, Guard the black.” The importance of the balance of black and white is that it is a shared value between both Eastern and Western typographic cultures. When we put something in black and white, we speak of the essence of the written word as a means to exchange and preserve information and knowledge for all, playing an important role in our culture and society.

Ripple To create a plan for disaster preparation. Every day we run the risk of a major quake striking San Francisco and leaving devastation in its wake. Earthquakes may be impossible to predict, but we can be certain of one thing, most people living in high-risk regions will be disastrously underprepared when one does strike.

{OB JECT IVE}

138 / 13 9

This project is an emergency plan for people’s inner circle of friends, relatives, or immediate family. That way, everybody know what to do during a quake. RIPPLE is my design brand that wants to let people understand how earthquakes can happen in their region, then know what to do to be safe and mitigate damage. It also shows people now how to take action to increase preparedness and participate in community resilience planning.

As the Bay Area’s population swells, BART faces the challenge of upgrading environmental public health. I propose to address the issue with my strategies. I created a report application, a cleanup volunteer event and an urban governance campaign that develops connections between administrators and commuters.
