Today I learned new software AfterEffects and I must admit that I’m in love with it. Although it’s going to take me a while to master it, I’m ready for a challenge. The things that you can create with it excite me very much. I made a little comic animation today but I’m eager to advance the program so I can create some beautiful things with it! xxx
During our Typography class we were asked to create our own modular typeface using Illustrator. At first all these little grids drove me mad but after a while I started digging the process of type making. I suppose that all these Dutch Graphic designers who are famous for their modular typefaces must have been really geeky type of people, soooo into their grids and squares, like their whole world was grids and shapes. After trying out different shapes I came into these vintage inspired typeface, it reminded me of Art Deco and Roaring Twenties. I think this typeface is good for brand names. And I decided to type Lana Del Rey’s single Dark Paradise. It suits perfect to her retro image and it reflects her personality and musical style.
Today we were revising Photoshop GiF making! I think Gifs are wonderful and the idea of putting a message into a short limited period of time and in a repetitive mode makes you think more creative. And of cause I made another Gif of my main Superstar Edie. The artwork is by moi. xxx
