Typography can be highly emotive and evocative. It can be as lively as illustration or photography. Not only can it be used to present content with clarity and precision, it can also be used to express and interpret content.
This assignment is to combine both expressiveness and clarity of typographic design. By creating a poster that makes dynamic, expressive use of more than one typefaces to present and interpret the lyrics of a song.
About the Song:

This assignment is to produce a contemporary interpretation of a wood type poster. It is not required to look historical but exciting,strong,dynamic,explosive,eye-catching. Also, it should be a thoughtful,intelligent,appropriate expression of the text that it contains.
For this assignment, I collected various hiring advertisements from different sources and use different typefaces to express the contents.Each of the ads has its own hirachy and focus, like a little story on its own. Then I organize all these ads in certain ways so that the poster is unified.
Poster Size: 17" x 50"

A brand for an art show featuring the works of students who had recently completed student exchange programs. A concept for branding was created in collaboration with Nicole Pizarro and Yuriy Rzhemovskiy. Photos were collected from participants from their exchanges, and placed into 3/4 squares, representing the unfinished feeling of an exchange student. Each image is captioned with the location of each photograph, and each shape is oriented on a virtual compass to point from Vancouver to that location. The final concept featured invitations, screen-printed and digitally printed posters, exhibition design and motion graphics.
