Amur Leopards are one of the rarest big cats in the world with an estimated 60 solitary individuals left in the wild. Amur Leopards are;  “Nimble-footed and strong, it carries and hides unfinished kills so that they are not taken by other predators. It has been reported that some males stay with females after mating, and may even help with rearing the young. Several males sometimes follow and fight over a female. They live for 10-15 years, and in captivity up to 20 years. The Amur leopard is also known as the Far East leopard, the Manchurian leopard or the Korean leopard.” (WWF)

Week 7 update: HALFTONES sample stickers

Finally got to see the quality of these stickers, and they’re pretty nice so i will be ordering more and in different colors so I can start making sticker packs . All the white parts are transparent and they are glossy in direct light.

My next goal is to make assorted color pins, maybe the same design just in different colors or maybe different designs entirely.

Week 5

This week, I decided to step back from my personal project and do a new kind of poster. This poster was a fun quick advertisement poster I made for Vaseline. I practiced typography by hand drawing the type. This was made traditionally, with pen and marker. I wanted to illustrate that Vaseline is actually “Good Stuff”, it was multifunctional, and a good product. Putting the hand and the finger acts as an element to juxtapose and play with the actual vaseline, as if someone is about to stick their finger in it. So in a way, this does stick with my poster theme, but helps me explore advertisement as well.


Poster update

I have decided on the first topic of my poster, and because I want to make posters on controversial relevant topic, I decided to tackle the ERA aka the equal rights act. I will be adapting the Russian Constructivist movement that I learned from ComD History, but with a modern, more minimalistic approach, much like the style of the Harry Potter posters by the Designer Group: MinaLima. I really like their unique poster design and subtle Russian constructivist techniques. Now I will incorporate that style and bust out the first poster.  (more…)
