Game night poster

I saw this poster hanging outside the elevator in the lobby of my building. The poster is very basic and bland leading me to not like it. It is very straight forward and not very eye catching to a viewer. The title being sideways is confusing and hard to read. The information on the side…

Wild Design- West Side Story

For my wild design I chose the West Side Story Soundtrack album cover, in this cover they take inspiration from the original soundtrack cover art and they take inspiration from the movie’s premise/plot also. In this musical, many of the musical numbers and moments between the two leading characters happen on a fire escape; this…

Wild Design-Holly Park

I saw this sign when I was out eating at CAVA the other day and I really just did not like it. It just seemed very immature in my opinion. First off, the sign is has nothing to do with the setting. This is a shopping center filled with food options, it doesn’t make sense…

Dreamworks Motorsports

For this assignment, I chose to look at Dreamworks Motorsports as having wild design. Dreamworks Motorsports is a car shop located close to my home in Roxboro, North Carolina, and they are mainly known for “wrapping” cars with custom wraps. They are a small shop, but somehow they have done so many cars for big…

Wild Design – April

  While I was away at school, my Mom has been “revamping” the front porch of our home. When I came home the other day, I saw that she had added new house numbers beside our front door. We use to have our house numbers on a post in the front flower bed. The letters were…

Born To Be by Melanie

This album cover really caught my eye as I was rummaging through old records in an antique shop. I was drawn to the vibrant oranges, blue, and pink colors. These colors stand out against the thick black strokes of hair and finer details of the people. Having the artist’s name, “Melanie” in white, established a…

Wild Design in Cameron Village

I took these pictures in Cameron Village. I think that this bridge is a great example of graphic design. I don’t think that it really serves any purpose outside of decoration. However, the bridge built around the tree really adds a nice appeal to the area. This bridge makes a good spot for customers to…

Silence at the Disco

This is a poster I have seen around NCState campus advertising a Silent Disco in Talley. The warm colors used for this poster is the main reason it caught my eye. I like the way they laid out the information  (typography) on top of solid shapes to make it more visible. Also, the swirly background…

The Random Little Things

This is a shirt I found at a TJMaxx during spring break. I instantly fell in love with this shirt the moment I saw it. The randomness of the design is what caught my eye the most. It is a collection of little icons that normally would not be put together, thrown on a shirt.…

Wild Design – April

I found this game day poster on Twitter the other day and was fascinated by the designer’s workflow. In the tweet, she posted a GIF going through all her layers. Quite unconventional is the coffee cup in space combined with the bridge and mountains. Recently, I bought a 5” external monitor for my mirrorless camera…

Andrew Blauvelt’s Work 2

In 2015, Andrew Blauvelt curated an exhibit for the Walker Art Center entitled Hippie Modernism: The Struggle for Utopia. In this exhibit, it examines the connections between art, architecture, and design from the 1960s to the 1970s. During this time was when a lot of artists were trying to find new inspiration for their work…

Andrew Blauvelt’s Work 1

For his work, I chose to learn more about one of his most renown exhibitions that he did in 2011 called Graphic Design: Now in Production. He did this project with the help of Ellen Lupton at Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum in New York. With Ellen’s help, Blauvelt was able to show the mix of…

“WILD” Savings!

I came across this flyer after shopping at Sephora recently. They put one flyer in every shopper’s bag upon checkout, advertising the upcoming spring sale. One thing in particular I liked about the design of the flyer is how the color theme matched the company’s signature black-and-white style. I think it looks simple yet elegant.…

Wild Designs- March

  At Cafe Carolina and Bakery store which is located at 401 Daniels St, Raleigh, NC. There is a beautiful mural painted all the way across the right side of the building.  The mural depicts people conversing with one another while enjoying food and drinks at tables with red umbrellas in what looks like a…

Wild Design : March

At the Cupcake Shoppe, in downtown Raleigh, there is this mural painted on the visible side of the wall. The mural reads “Stay Sweet, Raleigh” and the painting is an ombre from light pink into orange; the light pink possibly representing the light pink in the logo of the shop. I really love this design…
