Photographer & Graphic Designer
BRANDS I’VE WORKED WITH
as a Graphic Design Intern at Universal Orlando Parks and Resorts
While working at Universal Orlando Parks and Resort as a Graphic Design Intern, I went on a mini photo excursion around Universal Studios Orlando on one of my days off. This was one of my favorite images taken that day. Using Adobe Photoshop, I hoped to bring real magic into this piece.
Below are some of my other images taken on the same day at Universal
As I get familiar with Adobe Illustrator, I want to try to create a skeuomorphic design. As defined by WhatIs.com, Skeuomorphism is the design concept of making items represented resemble their real-world counterparts. I decided to work on a skeuomorphic design of Rogers Dubuis pocket watch in Adobe Illustrator.
Clamshell lighting is becoming one of the most popular light setups for beauty portrait or headshot. The reason behind it is because the fill light fills in lots of skin blemishes caused by the harsh key light. There are multiple different versions of this light setup. Peter Hurley, the world-renowned headshot photographer from New York, uses the basic principles of the clam shell lighting for 70% of his headshots. In my version of the clamshell lighting, I wanted to add some mood by tweaking the ratio of the key light and the fill light.
Gig posters are a part of the independent music scene. Created specifically for a specific show, the artist tries to capture the music and atmosphere in a print. Back in the day, a gig poster is the main advertising scheme of musical artists and bands. With the rise of the internet and social media, we rarely see gig posters hanging on the streets anymore. However, I think gig posters are just plain cool because there can be so much meaning/interpretation behind a gig poster. It is art. I think it’s a great project to do so I made up a band and start my creative process to come up with a gig poster.
The band I’m creating a gig poster for is called “The KomiKazi.” This is an alternative rock boy band who sings about politics and the government. Specifically, their song lyrics usually talk about both corruption and hope presented in a government system.
