This project started from an interesting beginning. All of us students are assigned to design a package for rubber sandals + 1 more individual requirements (in my case that keyword assigned only for me is ‘dark humour’)
I translated dark humour as ‘something that looks like one thing but actually is not’, ‘concealed messages’. And even though the keyword was initially viewed as negative, I chose to explore with a single piece of 160 gram coloured paper that ultimately resulted in a design that somewhat supports only child’s shoes.
The structure that I developed using origami techniques and use almost no glue inspired me to give the brand a cheerful and imaginative gimmick. In origami, one design can be a base of several designs. I took a long hard look at this structure and try to come up with as many creatures and objects that could possibly fit the form.
After all of the graphics mapping and production experiments, the final designs come down to these eleven. I also created an experienced-base window display that connected all the graphic versions of the shoes package together. When a child customer is led through the path by their guardians, they’ll be read the narratives about finding a reward that a girl (on the left) propose to them. The story involves nature, animals, quests and an adventure suitable for a 4-6 year-old child.
In this independent project for package design course, I came up with my own brand of vegetables-inspired and flavoured snacks called ‘Villain Village’. The product lines include the carrot juice popsicle ‘FRESH’, the mellow mushroom textured pudding ‘SOFT’, the chocolate coated onion bonbons ‘SWEET&LAYERED’.
The main focus of this course for me have always been about structure. I wish I have explore more in graphic design though. Anyway it was a fun ride.
It has come to the last week. The challenge was to mix an adjective of our own choice (I picked Tsundere – the act of a person who’s cold outside warm inside) + Sports style + New Wave style. I picked out some of my favourites to show in here.

It’s Olympics 2018! We tried the Sports style this week. With vibrant colours, motion and movement of people in various dynamic acts, we figured how to answer stuff in a way close to that of the Olympians as much as possible. Surprisingly hard for a style that’s very obvious in elements and wide spread in everyday life.
I never really liked watching nor doing sports of any kind. I do watch sports dramas (for the sake of my favourite Japanese actor anyway, not the sports itself).

On this week we accepted the challenge to mimic the 80’s New Wave graphic style. I was surprised at the class’s overall outcome. (At least I thought) we all did exceptionally well this week, perhaps we’ve always been the type to use silly elements with no obvious reason nor function. These are my collection but one day I’d love to show my friends’ version to you too.

In a sad mood tonight but I got a lot of work done at least. This week the challenge is to answer a little more personal stuff like views on romantic relationship and how things are at home with ‘High Modern’ graphic school. I was given the example works of Max Bill, El Lissitzky, Kazimir Malevich and Josef Muller Brock to form a rough idea what ‘High Modern’ is. Notice the use of only primary colours, light cream and grayish black.
High Modern is not exactly Minimalism. As you can see my work is far from being minimal. I enjoyed making them greatly, it also didn’t consume so much time as it did last week with craft and tactile. I personally love several pieces myself and was quite proud!
