My Thesis

Hey everyone! Nicky here ๐Ÿ™‚

I apologize for not posting here for weeks now. I have been so caught up in my school work, my personal life, and random other things. But in terms of school, I’ve been really focusing on my thesis. For those of you who don’t already know what my thesis is on, here is a quick synopsis:

My thesis is a series of videos exploring the experiences of individuals immigrating to Canada and their memories of where they’re from. Each individual shares a personal, unique story of why they chose to come to Canada. Through these shared memories of immigration, a conversation can begin with others on their experiences and a better understanding of someone’s personal journey.

Currently, I have created one video at the end of December and am working on the next two now.

Take a look at my first video and let me know what you think!

 

Im-Ur-Dream-Guy

Hey everyone! Nicky here ๐Ÿ™‚

Let me present my new kinetic type piece: Im-Ur-Dream-Guy. Inspired by the many comments that men send women on Tinder, I decided to create a monologue of a woman’s “dream guy”, describing why he would be the perfect one for you.

Cooking Mama: The board game

Hey everyone!
I know I haven’t posted anything recently and feel quite horrible about it. Classes have been so so busy and projects are piling up…

BUT here is something that I’ve finally finished!

I am so pleased with the outcome of this project for my Game Design class! I worked with 3 amazing girls to create an analogue game from an original digital game. So, with lots of thought, we decided to take the Nintendo game Cooking Mama and make a board game around that!

I plan on taking more professional pictures of the game for my portfolio, but here’s the final product:

And there you have it ๐Ÿ™‚

Better than POP-Tarts cuz its POP-Up!

Hey readers!

LESS THAN 48 HOURS TILL FREEDOM!!!!!!!!!!

Within the last little while, I’ve been studying for my one exam and getting myself ready for my presentation tomorrow night (more info on that will come in a following post so hang in there). Needless to say, things have been especially busy!

I’ve also been working on a special book for my Communication class this semester. Our final assignment was to create a process book of all the projects we created and turn them into something totally different. So, for my book I decided to make pop up pages.

Here’s what the book looks like:

I’m especially proud of this book because I tried a new binding technique and successfully made pop ups that work!

Hopefully, my professor enjoys looking through my book and sees the hard work I put into this ๐Ÿ™‚

 

 

 

 

Elements of Design

HOLY!!!ย 

I haven’t written a post in FOREVER!!!! I feel so bad for not adding another post sooner, but uni life is just so busy ๐Ÿ™‚

What have I learned at OCADU so far? Well, lots of things, but probably the most important thing would be the elements of design:

  • dot
  • line
  • plane
  • texture
  • volume
  • space
  • colour
  • can’t remember the last one…ย 

Using the first elements of design (dot, line, plane) we had to create an image using each element.ย 

This is what I did:

(This was made in Illustrator)
