I was approached by Univa Capital to come up with a New Year’s Card design to represent “The Year of the Monkey”. Univa Capital is a holding company with corporate companies around the world, so I had to make sure the design would be understandable to all of the clients that the card would be sent out to.
Using the Japanese & English copy provided, I create the illustration of the monkeys with the logo element incorporated in the design.
Currently I work at Lisuto in Japan as the Lead Designer, working on UI/UX design for this new application in Tokyo. It’s really interesting coming up with the design style, and then applying the style to creating responsive designs, & the iOS app.
The application will be provided in many languages, so I have to think about how the design will work in many languages, when designing for the application.
For my final University project I had to create an evaluation report that would explain about what I knew/had learned about business practice/branding and explaining about my own personal corporate identity.
The book turned out petty well, with the use of the GD86 branding and pictures that I had taken while visiting Tokyo.
The brief was given to us at the Batley School of Art to create a range of promotional material for the Manchester Jazz Festival, which is a festival held in various venues in Manchester each year.
I came up with the idea to create the instruments using shapes to catch the attention of potential viewers, by using instruments that are associated with jazz music. This concept was then applied to a range of promotional items and outdoor advertising examples.
