The idea behind my personal branding is marrying my love for both illustration and design.
The organic feel of the illustration is constrained in the organization provided by the square-shaped logo. In the process, the illustration becomes an element of design.
I went with a black and white color palette since ideas start off as basic as that and later grow into something much more colorful. More importantly, I like to keep things simple and clean.
A tribute to Wes Anderson, and his ability to inspire.
A personal project inspired by Wes Anderson's eight feature films. Fictional locations from his films were put on postcards to give them the essence of being real travel destinations which one could visit, or send postcards from.
I'm absolutely in love with Wes Anderson's visual style and I wanted to portray the same whimsical and melancholic moods that he was able to capture in his films. The places were all so characteristic of each film’s overall personality. That’s what I wanted to capture; each locale as characters themselves, teeming with personality. I thought an appropriate way to represent a place was through a postcard and postcards give the notion of being able to visit them as real travel destinations. To reinforce that idea, I made stamps visually unique to each film.
Wedding invitation design for my friends, Ron and KG, with the theme of Vincent Van Gogh's "The Starry Night".
For their wedding invitations, they wanted to go for something informal, quirky, bright, and friendly, like the people they are, to capture the mood of their upcoming wedding. The opening spread shows their travels together as they reminisce in awe under a starry night sky.
A personal project consisting of designing vinyl covers for Porter Robinson's album "WORLDS" and its four accompanying singles "Sea of Voices", "Sad Machine", "Lionhearted", and "Flicker".
"WORLDS" takes a more alternative form of electronic music. It's an album that channels many emotions through its sound, mainly that of nostalgia. It portrays the creation and destruction of fictional worlds, and the emotions involved in the processes.
With that said, I chose to portray different worlds through different skies. For the singles, the skies and their respective colors match the mood per song according to how I perceived each one. Serenity, wistfulness, bravery, and adventure for "Sea of Voices", "Sad Machine", "Lionhearted", and "Flicker" respectively. The alternative vinyl covers take the original designs and make each one look more like a world of its own. For the "WORLDS" album cover design, it takes the colors used to portray each singles' emotion/mood and brings them all together; fictional worlds become reality through emotions.
For the love of sushi, and for the fun of experimenting with patterns.
“Why does anybody in the world ever eat anything but breakfast food?”
Who knows...but breakfast is paradise.
Various illustrations done for my Visual Communication course and personal projects throughout 2014.
As an assignment for my editorial illustration class, this poster series portrays the beauty and charm of Manila, Philippines to counter its stigma of being known as "the gates of hell".
I wanted to show "the beauty amidst the chaos" through the many colors found throughout the city and its culture; street food loved by everyone, jeepneys (an iconic mode of public transportation), and a diversity of buildings scattered throughout the metro.
I did some illustrations for my editorial illustration class and the assignment was to tackle a corporate topic; how would you engage readers and make the topic, Human Resource Management, more appealing and approachable?
My illustrations focused on the main ideas, the employees and providing proper training for them to strengthen a company as a whole, for easy comprehension and using friendly pastel colors to give the article a warm, inviting feel.
