New update =)

Recently busy doing assignments, still haven't got the time to do any artworks for my own. Anyway, I am happy that i finally got a friend find me to do design for her business assignment. She want me to design a logo for her restaurant business assignment and her group gave the name called " Happy Season/s".
Here's the logo

Here's the mascots, each represent each season.

Below here are my Media Innovation / Advertising design assignment. The task is to choose a food product that sells in the supermarket and analyse the situation for the market place and SWOT. Then create and design a logo, tagline, voucher/coupon,  paper bag, packaging, 3d modelling and animation for the new product we created.
I chose instant noodle snack and named it Owlker which derived from Owl Rocker. Owl represents the night and rocker means the people who rock/work means night rocker which is my target audience. They are late night workers or study late night and also love midnight snack.

The tagline is " Taste the midnight rocker." which is a metaphor that midnight rocker is the snack food. Means with the midnight rocker (instant noodle snack), your night will be rocked by Owlker, away from the dull working overtime mood.

image above: My previously paper bag design.

My final design for the paper bag.

Thus, the paper bag design  which I chose the background with lines which reminds me or the notebook papers to shows like working or studying days where you need to drop things down, to bring closer to the target audience, at the same time, i put colorful circles with the pattern/texture of the noodle which also represent the shape of the food product and also the colours are to cheer the workers up from their dull working days. The thunders and the moon with stars gives the rocker mood and meaning to relate back to the night rocker concept. Because of target audience is urban workers and students, I added the city buildings. Thunder symbol also gives the meaning of the crispy noodle.

My 3D modelling of the instant noodle snack.

The voucher final design front and back.

the others still are in progress. wish me good luck =)

Making Masquerades 2

Finally got my masks done yesterday, and just ready for using them for photo shoot, both of them are made of newspapers and metal wires/string to shape them, paint, and spray mount to cover one layer on top of the masks to maintain or make the mask slighty shiny.

I know the real one didn't look as huge as the sketch.. and i didn't add any flowers as i afraid of having too much details, do you think so?

I'm a.. fox? wolf? lolz

Please, listen to the Earth, its up to us to write what happens next

Please, listen to the Earth, its up to us to write what happens next..
"All living matters linked.
Water Soil, trees, air.
We are destroying the cycle of life that has given to us.
We are killing the species by increasing the rhythm 1000times faster than the natural rate.
We have upset the Earth's climatic balance.
Water shortage would affect 2 billion people before 2025.
There may be at least 200 million climate refugees by 2050.
Every Year, 13 millions hectares of forest disappear.
5,000 people a day die of dirty drinking water.
1 Billion people have no access to safe drinking water
1 Billion people going hungry.
40% Arabic land has suffer long term damage.

Must we always build the walls to break the chain of human solidarity, separate people& protect the happiness of some from others' misery?

All we have to do is cultivate the sun
Stop drilling the Earth & start looking to the sky."

Please watch this video to understand what are we doing to the earth and what can we do with what's remaining. It's too late to be pessimistic
Please spare one hour and 30 minutes of your life to listen to the nature, the earth now, before you take another action.

The topic is called the uniqueness of creative multimedia. And my group said they want to show more inspirations from creative multimedia. But my concept is not only inspirations but grow wider and broader as in this course can make us learn a lot grow from there, is like a locker and we are the key to unlock the wonderful and inspirational journey from creative multimedia.
C&C are welcome.

MI CNY soft drink ads assignment

Sorry for very very lag of updating this blog, I was busy with my own works and also school works. And this is one of them. To choose a product from 5 products and match with one special events from 5 different events. In the end, I chose soft drink with Chinese New Year event. After many consultations with lecturers and research from internet and precedent studies, here's the result. The reason I choose pheonix instead of dragon or tiger to represent Chinese New Year is too generic and common as I was told by the lecturer so I used pheonix in the end.

This was done by mixed software and media which is photo cutout, Adobe Illustrator, Adobe Photoshop.

Below are the sketches before I get into the final product.

C&C are welcome. =)

Photoshoots of Star Chaser

(am i very free now? NO but addiction to take photos and make handcraft stuff.. need to focus on study now >.<)

Recycle Old Clothes Project

this is an old pants that my mum already cut off half of it and left it here. Thus, I think of using it to make a box to keep my shade glasses.
and I cut out corner pieces of these polystyrene food containers that I collected from buying meat in supermarket. I have two of these and used to combine together to form a box then sew the cloth pocket to put the polystyrene in to form a solid box shape to protect the glasses.

and I decorate it by sewing my name on it ^_^"
then button on the back
anyway, my sewing skill still noob and the lines are untidy. Comments and Critiques are welcome.=) any new ideas are welcome =)
