Here are a few photos from an impromptu shoot with my sister today. I was planning to use these photos for my annual report for Layout (I chose GAP as my company) and decided to drop a few edited pics here. I definitely tried keeping my sister's face out of the photos just to keep a subjective view on the report. Hence the title of the mini shoot: anonymity.

Senior Session: Kim

It's been a while since I've picked up my camera, and if not for this shoot, I probably wouldn't have picked up my camera for an even longer while. Photography definitely took a back-burner to designing for the past two semesters. Initially I told myself that I needed to focus on designing because my work needed improvement, but in the end I felt like it had made me lazy (by taking the time from shooting to 'focus' on designing). Needless to say, it feels amazing to be shooting again.

Recently, after taking a notable shift in social circles and interests, I realized that I'm going through a pretty dramatic change. The same people that were at the top of my messages began to archive themselves into my logs. It was the slight shifts in preferences, the short stalls before answering a question, or the new-found comfort sinking into my skin when I realized that things were definitely changing. All I know is that if you're changing you're definitely not staying the same and comfort is too still of a place for a person to be for too long.

Feelin' ultra sketchy recently.
Also, Copic markers are insanely awesome but painful for my wallet.

So the semester is ending in 5 weeks, which is surprisingly soon. I've got so much stuff to do that these few upcoming weeks don't seem to be enough. A recap of my work is long overdue and I hope I get to focus on my personal projects soon.

Layout: Gestalt

For the past week and a half we've been working on our gestalt projects (a thoughtful collage of type and imagery) and over the weekend I just completed my second piece. I didn't get a chance to take a photo of my first one but it was similar to this one. Both adopted the same angle and one color accent thing that I've got going on up there.

I always knew that hoarding all of my old magazines and news articles would pay off. 

I don't know how other people work but my process is much like I'd do something small and then I'd take a break every ten or fifteen minutes. Every so often I'd walk by and just look at it and see if it still works. It's weird how sometimes you think it's brilliant and then you go eat and come back and think it's the most ridiculous thing you've ever done.

I tried to pay attention to the details and how I treated the type. If it means anything, this one is much more favorable compared to my first one.
