Mixtape: Visual Guide to Listening

Graphic Design, Imagery

I aimed to create a sensory experience by combining music with a booklet of curated images. I selected an image (often an art piece) that I felt matched the mood of each song . I then added facts about the image and/or the respective song to the coordinating page so that the sensory experience could even become an informative one.

I named the project “Evocative. Movement.”. “Evocative” since both the paired song and image are meant to evoke a common mood. And “Movement” because many of the songs explicitly describe movement in the lyrics.

This is definitely the most elaborate mixtape cover booklet I’ve ever attempted to make.

Mindmap: The Mysterious

Conceptual

Mindmapping is a common practice of mine that always leads to interesting discoveries. I generally mind map to thoroughly explore a topic or figure out the root of an issue. I found that many topics that recur in my mind have a common theme; they are embedded in my idea of “the mysterious”. Here is my mind map that hashes out some of these ideas and my found connections between them.

One Bookshelf. Two Portraits.

Graphic Design, Illustration, Imagery

I love to read and I love to design. I combined these interests and attempted to make an interesting portrait of the last 5 books I’ve read. Two versions emerged from this exploration. The more illustrative version came naturally and the diagram came from further simplifying and refining.

Swimwear Defacement

Fine Art, Illustration

I came up with the idea to digitally draw my favorite swimsuits of the season on top of Art History Nude masterpieces. Who better to model them than goddesses from history.

Astrology Diagrams

Graphic Design, Illustration

I’m a huge fan of astrology and wanted to create some interesting diagrams to stretch my research and graphic design legs.

Each of the 12 astrological signs are grouped into 4 bigger groups called Elements (Fire, Earth, Water and Air). These Elements have common qualities. Here I broke the Elements into diagrams and showed the characteristics that are both shared and individual to the 12 astrology signs.

Overall, Water signs are emotional and intuitive, Earth signs are practical and hardworking, Air signs are intellectual and curious, and Fire signs are dynamic leaders.
