What’s Your Flower?

Ever since the calendar I had to complete for my Communication Design class, I have been thinking of new projects to do for myself. Interestingly enough, I decided to make my own personal calendar in my spare time and in between other homework assignments.

For this calendar, I wanted to make something playful and pretty. Therefore, I thought a calendar for birth-month-flowers would be a great idea! I found a list via Wikipedia saying a flower for each month of the year and the flower’s symbolism.

Here’s the cover I made:

This will be fun to complete after the bulk of my work is done! I’m planning on printing this out and hanging up the final product in my room! 🙂

Promoting a Store

This past week was Reading Week! (which is code for NO SCHOOL and GETTING NO WORK DONE and DOING WHATEVER YOU WANT and PARTYING!!)

Fortunately for me, I managed to get most of my work done, spent time with my awesome friends, and just relaxed.

One of the assignments I had to work on was for my Communication Design class. Luckily, this assignment does NOT involve any animals and alphabets (check my previous posts about the Animal Alphabet). This assignment, is divided into 3 parts:

  1. Pick a store and explore it
  2. Write a design brief for a promotional item for that store and present your ideas to the class
  3. Make the promotional item

The store I picked is a patisserie near my house called La Bamboche (which sells the tastiest macarons ever!!) and the item I decided to make is a calendar.

What was fun about this assignment is the fact that I got to photograph pretty desserts and make a lovely calendar using those images 🙂

Here are a few examples of the photographs I took:

And here is the layout of the calendar pages:

I can’t wait to print out the pages and put this calendar together!!

Reading Week

Today was the first day of Reading Week! It started after my morning class, which was Communication Design 2, where I pitched my ideas for the final part of my assignment! (its going to be a calendar btw). So now, I am up at the cottage with my family, just relaxing and taking time off working. 

Well…

Not entirely actually.

Right now, I am just making some art for myself, while I have the chance anyway. So, I decided to make myself my very own “Breakfast At Tiffany’s” poster! Granted, I do have a copy of one that I bought at the MoMA last May, but I want to actually MAKE one! 

Here is what it looks like right now:

Leave a comment if you have any suggestions for what I should add, exclude, change, anything you think. 

I’m open to any feedback 🙂
