The first group activity as a Graphic Design student seems to be very interesting. I am not sure if I am excited or not for this since we get to paint the wall in the student lounge at the same time its going to remain there for maybe the nest 2-3 years! everyone is going…

BIG CRITIQUE DAY: Haterade!

For the first time, I was less nervous about what others would say about my work and more nervous about critiquing others work! During the haterade, I got really helpful feedback that I am planning to work on which already tells me that my poster is going to be incredibly different from where it is…

Illustrator: recreating characters, making avatars and more!

Illustrating the cardboard man Danbo was a lot of fun! Initially, it was challenging to get the proportions right and the shadows but as I worked on it for quite some time, it got easier. Making the individual parts of the cardboard man. Sushi time! This was really challenging such that I just wanted to…

Journey to final object poster

After making/photographing atleast 100 images/objects, I narrowed my selection to my 10 best objects based on the keywords. With the 10 objects, I experimented different styles to make a poster that represents my main object(keychain) in some way. The journey from bringing the object to class to where I am now has been highly interesting….

Virtual Field Study

The Virtual Field Study project for imaging class has been a lot of fun till now. Each one of us chose 3 countries and qatar around the world that we researched upon.   My countries(there) are Tanzania, Malaysia and Peru and here is Qatar.   In Swahili(language spoken in Tanzania), Habari means hello!

New vocabulary : Gestalt

GESTALT Recently, I learnt a new word called “Gestalt” which basically means shape or form. Our professor showed us an example in class where lines were rotated such that the negative space showed a circle. It is like the popular Rubin’s vase image, where 2 faces can be seen and a white vase forms in the…

Letter Forms Part II

As promised in the last post, here are the pictures of my final 9 tiles and the process pictures along with it. I have also included shots from critique sessions to only emphasise how much the feedback from my peers and professors helped me and contributed to making the 9 final pieces. Scenes from critique-time! My…

Letter Forms

Its just the third week of my sophomore year and the letters don’t look like it anymore; or maybe, the letters were never letters in the first place! I have been seeing them wrongly for the past 18 years of my life! I learnt to investigate them for their basic shapes and forms and discovered that…

Illustrator FUNN!

LOVING this project! I love how we can just play with random scans to make such beautiful designs! Kinda looks like islamic patterns too! Ahh, Graphic Design is fun!

New Beginnings, Image banks and projects!

Its been two weeks since my life as a Graphic Design student began! Its a pretty amazing feeling…but maybe the workload was among the many things I was not ready for. Just realised how easy going Art Foundation was. The last 2 weeks have been really hectic and I already had my first all nighter for…

The world of images

  Type as Image – Image Bank Its been 2 weeks since we started collecting different kinds of images and the information I learnt about images in such a short amount of time has left me speechless. Images can be denotative, connotative,persuasive, poetic, pragmatic? Wow! I also learnt that images can be of different types, namely :…
