Hi, this is Hiroko. I made some pdf file to introduce my project’s process. Please open the file and each of the article are brief so that I put everything in one. Please understand it.
1,Museum Research Projects
We had to research famous Manhattan museum’s exhibition and make more than three advertising media such as posters, brochures, postcards and so on with research.
2, 2 cubes project
We had to decide two inverse themes and make 6 by 6 by 6 two cubes by following the concepts.
3, Photo essay
We had to go somewhere around our city and take pictures to tell our story. To tell our story, we required to arrange 13 photos on a gray board to let the viewer understand the theme. I went to Bedford Avenue, in Blooklyn and did two things. First, I strolled around the city and found some interesting sceneries. Second, I found a big riverside park and enjoyed twilight and birds. To tell the two flow of my trip, I first arranged all the photos by equal interval. Though, it was difficult to follow the story for other students and my professor. Then, I put the first picture at the top and made two symmetry lines(flows).
4, Book Binding Project
We had to make a book without glue or stickers that has more than 16 pages.
5,Self Poster Project
This project required us to make a big poster with our own photograph and initial fonts that we took on the street without editing by Photoshop or other softwares.
I experienced a lot and it was such a great opportunity for me to study physical design process. I had been not good at design by real paper or glue for more than 20 years and I also had a fear for “process” and “skills” but thanks to my teacher and other gifted students, I think I could compete my own imprinting for the process and skills. Now, I love it a lot ! I want to challenge more. Thanks, Hiroko
