For my personal project I’ve decided to go with designing a label for natural curly/kinky hair. Not too many products are solely for said hair textures. I plan to come up with a few different label designs to appeal to different audiences.
Somthing I noticed about my art is that most of it attracts a certain kind of person, and I would love to help those type of people. Dark days would be a sticker campaign to “bomb” Utica (digitaly) with stickers with dark imagery and bold colors to draw people in. Each peice would have the message “the days are not as dark as they seem, call this number if you need someone to talk to” and the number for the National suicide prevention hotline would be provided; In an attempt to help people help themselves.
This project is basically Tinder for artists, but instead of being a sleazy dating app it’s a slightly less sleazy job search app. I got inspired to make this project over the summer when I changed all my Tinder pictures to artwork and listed commission prices with my portfolio website in my bio and actually found work that way, so I concluded maybe an entire app dedicated to this would work out just fine. It would operate in a similar fashion – you choose what your looking for, jobs or work, and get bombarded by individual profiles that you’d he forced to swipe right or left on. Whichever you match with, you’d have the option to contact them and discuss further. A built in payment system would be incorporated into the app so users wouldn’t have to rely on outside services for that. It’s for more casual jobs rather than stable ones, mainly freelance work for students or rising hobbyist designers could pick up for some real world experience.
