Hello everybody!

This is an announcement that I will be moving my blog to a new home. You can find it on my website [www.junlikato.com] under “Blog.” Its basically the same blog with the same posts, just a new location 🙂 I won’t be closing this one quite yet, so if you would like to still follow me, make sure to follow the new one on my website.

I’ve been doing a lot of traveling this summer, so look out for some new work inspired by the journeys soon!

Hope everyone’s tuesday has been good so far~

Hi everyone!

So remember that little sneak peak I shared of the poster I was working on a few days ago? I kind of left that dangle somewhere and jumped to something else… >___<  But that’s how things with me! Sometimes I have to be working on several projects at once to regain some creative juices. The real reason was, yes, I got stuck with where to go with it and I couldn’t make certain things work.

So instead, I started a new one and finished that today. It’s more of a fun, experimental piece. I was talking with my sister a few days ago about what sort of projects I should do to stay creative and she mentioned typography. That rang a bell in my head- I love typography! So that’s what I did, a relatively fast typographical poster playing with creating text with shapes and lines. Here’s how it came out!

Its not the most spectacular piece I’ve done…Because again, this was done pretty fast and just for fun. Feel free to check it out on my behance here.

Once more, I hope you are having a spectacular day! It has been raining here all this week, so I’ve been pretty much stuck in the house. But I guess that’s what I’m usually doing anyway    >n<

I’ll post some more stuff soon,

till then, Take care!

Hi all!

As promised, here is my second post for my Typa-blog. This one was done relatively fast so it may not seem as polished as my previous one, but I wanted to make sure I had one for today. Hopefully I can produce more sophisticated pieces throughout the week but I am a bit swamped with work. Today’s entry is a short one.

Ever heard of the phrase “cute as a button?” Do you agree with the saying or do you think it doesn’t make sense at all? Let me know in the comments! Hmm all of these buttons may be telling me something about Halloween coming up…

Hey everybody!

I was talking with my sister the other day who is also studying design and she mentioned keeping a typography journal. I think its actually a really good idea. It keeps your brain working as well as the creative juices flowing. So what I’m going to start doing is keeping a typographic journal, or typojournal…or typoblog…type-a-blog. TYPA-BLOG! Hah… you’ve just witnessed my brain in action.

By doing this, it should help me to post more often, show you some more interesting works of my own, and mostly help me stay creative and active in design because all of this other homework is getting the best of me. To start this Typa-blog, here’s my first image I did today. It went through several stages before finally ending up as this and I’m pretty satisfied with how it came out 🙂

It isn’t an obvious photo where its completely light and happy as the word denotes. Instead, it is set in a dark setting but the word “smile” is lit like a candle referencing how the simplest act or kindest gesture can warm someone’s heart or brighten someone’s day 🙂

Here’s to a new beginning!
