Hey everyone!

I know I haven’t been posting much of my own work up so I’m going to show you what I have been working on for the past month in my design class (I know- a month?? That’s way too long).

The assignment was to create a magazine spread on ourselves (so in a way, its a self-portrait). We had to design three different designs based on three different words that describes us, good or bad. After we critiqued them we helped each other decide which one to make two more spreads with based on that spread’s elements and word. For instance, the one I’m expanding on is based on the word “Silly.”

Because this one was selected for my final pieces I have to make two more spreads to complete the make-believe article on myself (sounds like I’m repeating myself a lot, sorry >.<)

So far this is what I have come up with for my second spread (in progress):

And I haven’t started on the third one yet, but I am definitely starting that this weekend. Before you comment on the “header” of this page, all of the text is placement/dummy text, including the header (hence the reason it says “header” haha). There is no way I would be able to create an entire article on myself- how awkward is that!

This is another spread based on the word “directed.” It has a completely different feel than the one above because my interpretation of the word “directed” means someone who knows what they want and where they are going, straight forward, and bold. It also plays with the motion of “direction” and creates a specific movement from point A (top left corner) to point B (“GOAL”) signifying a journey or road. Its still in progress though (the black squares could use some adjustments).

AAAAnd….my third one is still in “remodeling” mode which becomes slightly ironic because the word that it is based on is “indecisive.” I think what is going to end up happening is me turning in a design I’m unsure about which makes it all the more hilarious and frustrating at the same time. It all makes sense why that word describes me. >  orz

As for my box project, I should be finishing that this weekend or early next week (because it is due next wednesday) so I’ll post that up as soon as I can. I can’t wait to tell you all what I have planned for my next sculptural assignment which is based on belief.

Until then, Have a great weekend!
