Truth & Reconciliation Canada Booth

Charis_reconciliation For this project, I chose to target secondary to post-secondary students, because they are the people who can make big changes in the future.

Vancouver Honeybee

For this project, we collaborated with a “real client.” Our instructor set up the class to skype with people from Vancouver, who would like us to solve the problem they have with their organization. The very first problem was to solve the technical problems with skype. What happens when the client is not familiar with skyping?…

Editorial Magazine Spread—Wonder Women

For this specific project, I chose the article about the controversy of having Wonder Woman as an ambassador for women and girls. The article goes into depth about how some people feel the costume of Wonder Woman, the bathing suit, and how she reveals some parts of her fit body, is not appropriate enough to represent and…

She did super-graphic designs for stairs of a building. The floor numbers are blowed up so much that they overlap…

RICK GRIFFIN

I have to admit what caught my eye was the huge difference of how he looked young compared to after being a grownup. However, I chose him because his styles. During the psychedelic period, some people are influenced by the Art Nouveau but with extremely bright, neon colours, which I wasn’t appealing to me as much….

The Different Thinker-Paul Rand (142)

Because Paul Rand’s name appeared again and again through out this program, thought I would write something about him. There is no doubt that he changed the way how people used to advertise. Other than the great logos he had designed, his posters really caught my attention. He played while designing. In most of his…
