Genki textbooks

This past year I have been taking Foreign Language Japanese here at NCSU. We use these textbooks to learn and practice Japanese. The workbook is used for homework and practice, while the other book is the main book and is used for learning new grammar, new words and all other learning happening during the class…

NC Skateboarding

I saw this sticker at the bus stop next to Bragaw hall while we were still on campus. I took a photo of it to send to a few of my friends because I knew they would appreciate it as much as I did. I think this is a very clever slogan and was skillfully…

Muir Woods

On my recent trip to California, I visited Muir woods and saw this poster and knew I had to have it. This poster immediately drew my attention because of it’s simplistic yet beautiful design. Using only three colors, orange, green and black. Using the negative space within the poster to create the image of the…

Cards Against Humanity: Absurd Box

The Absurd box is an extension to the original Cards Against Humanity Pack and it features a redesign of the original cards. The box itself is smaller and features a black line pattern on the lower half of the box that mirrors the embossed design on the cards, making it easier for users to tell…

Coronavirus Poster

I saw this picture on social media and it caught my eye immediately. Everyone is fully aware of the COVID-19 virus and the precautions the world has been forced to take. I think this poster does a good job at promoting support and togetherness during this extremely scary and difficult time. I think it does…

Cooking Guide

Today, I would like to talk about how graphic design can be used for providing information to the viewer/ user of a product. The pictures are cooking instruction of a pressure cooking device. It has many options and the ability to cook various menus with many different ingredients. Because of the variety of options, the…

Stella Artois

Whenever I took this photograph I knew it would be a perfect picture to use for the wild design assignment. I took this when I was in New York as I was walking down the street with some of my friends. All of us stopped and snapped a picture of it, looking like major tourists,…

Dorothy Must Die

I do not purchase books often, but when I do, I chose which cover grabs my attention first. Walking through Barnes & Noble, this particular book caught my eye for its gory title and intriguing cover. I grew up watching The Wizard of Oz, so I was shocked to pick up this book titled Dorothy…

Black Widow Comic

Over the past year or so, Black Widow has become one of my favorite comic book characters. Part of why is because of the beautiful art done by Phil Noto in his run of the comic. Noto’s style has a certain painterly quality rather than the traditional style that is associated with comic book art.…

The Persistence of Cheeseburgers?

For this Wild Design, at the Cowfish restaurant in Raleigh, I found a print that parodies Salvador Dali’s “The Persistence of Memory”. I found this poster to be especially appealing due to both its faithful recreation of the original work, and its cleverness in creating a corporate identity that utilizes humor as part of its…

The Smartphone Black Hole

I love the work of Nathan Yoder, an illustrator based out of Seattle, WA. I was looking through his Instagram, and I came across this beautiful image of a smartphone black hole. I love the piece because it stresses the attractive pull of smartphones on our attention. In the Instagram caption, Yoder writes: This past…

“Catch me If you can” title design

After watching the lecture about film title design, I got very interested in film title design and spend extra time looking for some of the famous film title designs. The one I am going to talk about today is a movie called “Catch me If you can”. The movie is one of my favorite movies.…

Alexander Rodchenko: Dance, an ‘Objectless’ Composition

“Dance, an Objectless Composition”was created by Alexander Rodchenko in 1915. It is an abstract Oil on Canvas painting that is not housed in The Pushkin Museum of Fine Arts in Moscow. Though, Dance is a ‘Futuristic’ work, coincidentally Alexander Rodchenko anatomizes the subject. The painting appears to be somewhat of an emotional outburst. In consonance…

The Godfather

  I own a small collection of books, many of which I’m initially drawn to because they feature visually interesting covers. In my collection, there may not be a more widely recognized cover than one of my personal favorites, The Godfather by Mario Puzo. I enjoy this work (designed by Neil Fujita) because it is…

NoName Canada Mayonnaise

After spending countless hours online while being stuck inside due to the quarantine, I have come in contact with far more diverse design work than I would normally take in on a daily basis. While a lot of this still felt like visual noise to me, one piece of design work that I came across…
