HELLO! its been very long while....

Hey!!, its been a very long while for not updating my blog. I have been working as intern for 3 months and came back to new semester in university after internship. Today just going to update you guys with my old assignment work which have been done 4 months ago. Looking back my old works made me feel that i am so silly with all those silly mistakes and amateur works done by me.
These are my assignment print ad designs that were made before my internship, Sorry if there's any alignment problem or any amateur color choice.

I used metaphor idea to describe the orphans like the small little stones on the ground being kick around or thrown, abandoned as no one cherish it. But stones are used to build houses which means everyone here do have values, have their worthiness. So, we should also help them to succeed their dreams by providing the guide and education.

 This was describing the tagline message which is "Embrace.Encourage.Educate" using a paper airplane folding steps.Embrace means to take, receive and accept, to adopt. To me , accept can be shown through the gesture of hug or arms. Then i thought of the paper airplane folding steps, there's one is fold inwards, that gesture gives me the feeling of embrace, hug or let in. Encourage with the hands open up the wings of the paper airplane is sort of gesture of encouraging the airplane(orphan) to fly. Lastly, the educate with the hand of throwing paper airplane to fly is showing us how to fly with the hand ready to throw the plan up and foward.

I guess this is more directly deliver the message by the visual. So, i do not need to explain this one =)

The spirit of Wushu

Recently, I have been busy working on my painting assignment for more than a week. I have been sleeping late or sleep around 1 am then woke up at 4am to continue finish this painting fast to meet due date. Very tiring.
I won't say i did very great, fine job, but I at least had experience painting something so complex on third quarter of my height canvas size within one and a half week time.

Self mixing the colors was good experience for trial and error but also tiring to force myself keeping the spirit to continue working to finish it.

Envrionmental Design Assignment - Phase 1 Zara Company study

Zara (clothing)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Zara (Spanish: [ˈθara]) is a Spanish clothing and accessories retailer based in Arteixo, Galicia, and founded in 1975 by Amancio Ortega and Rosalia Mera. It is the flagship chain store of the Inditex group; the fashion group also owns brands such as Massimo Dutti, Pull and Bear, Oysho, Uterqüe, Stradivarius andBershka.
It is claimed that Zara needs just two weeks[1] to develop a new product and get it to stores, compared with a six-month industry average, and launches around 10,000 new designs each year. Zara has resisted the industry-wide trend towards transferring fast fashion production to low-cost countries. Perhaps its most unusual strategy was its policy of zero advertising; the company preferred to invest a percentage of revenues in opening new stores instead.
Zara was described by Louis Vuitton fashion director Daniel Piette as "possibly the most innovative and devastating retailer in the world." Zara has also been described as a "Spanish success story" by CNN.

Zara's products

As of 2007 Zara stores have men's clothing and women's clothing, each of these subdivided in Lower Garment, Upper Garment, Shoes, Cosmetics and Complements, as well as children's clothing (Zara Kids). Currently their sizing on women's clothing goes to a US size 12 or a UK size 14 or extra large.

Environmental Design Assignment Phase 1 - Research Process

The Design Idea
I am doing on fashion category.The brand I chose is Zara Spring Collection 2011 exhibition.
The metaphor I chose is spring flowers.

I love the images of tree branches as I was inspired by the structure and shape of the branches as the images of the branches looks polygonal and circling.

Study of the Spring colour choices
This is a study for mural wall color choices of the exhibition design. So that I will not pick the wrong colors and also know the range of options for me to pick.


I like this concept or idea that i found in Google while doing research. I decided to use this idea in the exhibition as I think is space saving which is good for this small size exhibition.

Directory sign board design assignment

Hello! long time no update recently. I was busy doing assignments and some other outdoor activities.
This semester my class have this subject called environmental design which is for study about design exhibition stage and some sign board design, so will learn about some architecture stuff such as using their tools to design  draw accurately the stage or the standing board, etc.

below are the images of my final chosen design for directory in mall. 

the outline sketch with measurement planned well.

the outline digital form

after revision and further reference, changes are made.

this is the final design here. and the human figure beside it shows how big is the directory is.

 this is my first attempt to make the model mock up but my cutting skill and the sticking them together did not executed nicely. So, I didn't use this one.

After further developing the design and playing with texturing, patterns, I plan to redo the mock up with one different material added in which is the semi transparent color plastic card.

Done! but my cutting skill still bad hahaha.
