My Book project

my book pdf file

In this book project, I did learn a lots of tech function in “In Design.” (This is my first time to work under this application program) Personally I found out this is really useful. During the last class, I received lots of good feedback from my lovely classmates (such as text font size…text arrangement…printing layout….binding or not binding the book cuz it makes the work book more like a notebook from Dollar Store…..~”~)

I had lots of fun while working on this project, and more importantly, I got lots of excellent classmates ^^ And I want to make some special thanks to SUZI. This is my second time to have her class and she did put lots of efforts and patient during this summer class. Highly recommend on Suzi’s class. (Sounds like an eBay seller/buyer review…haha)

In this project, I made two posters for “fun.” At the very beginning I was quite ambitious about my poster plan, however, it may take a longer time to complete the “original plan (and so far I will keep the ambitious plan as a secret!) ” Now, I made a series of mask posters, I used gas mask and baroque mask as the main icons on my two posters. For the Gas mask poster, human being finally polluted the entire earth (yeah…we finally made it!) And there was a guy who found a certain heart shape plant with the crystal-like outlook. Does it mean that we still have the chances to being the better enviornment back on earth?!!

The baroque mask party is coming up…does anyone here want to join the party with me? Put on your mask and hop up the party wagon!

Project #2 – Logo

August 4, 2008

Initially, René Descartes arrives at only a single principle: thought exists. Thought cannot be separated from me, therefore, I exist (Discourse on the Method and Principles of Philosophy). Most famously, this is known as cogito ergo sum (Latin: “I think, therefore I am”), or more precisely, “Dubito, ergo cogito, ergo sum” (Latin: “I doubt, therefore I think, therefore I am”). Therefore, Descartes concluded, if he doubted, then something or someone must be doing the doubting, therefore the very fact that he doubted proved his existence. “The simple meaning of the phrase is that if someone is wondering whether or not he exists, that is in and of itself proof that he does exist.”

I borrowed the  “I think, therefore I am” philosophy from Descartes and apply this on my logo. As you can see, I used my face ( I can’t think of any other excellent ways to symbolize myself…haha ) as the main icon of  my logo. And three big question marks on my head, obviously you can see Justin being thinking of something, therefore I am! Thus I am able to function my body to work on all the projects from this course and then post the final image on this blog!!!!

Also, I made an extra logo. It’s just about being a superman. Who doesn’t want to have the super strengths? I can do homeworks faster, don’t need to get a car and even travel all over the world within a second (which save me hell lots of money due to the high gasoline price right now.) I don’t need to wear the bullet-proof vest while walking in the bad neighbor hood…etc. Thus, I made myself as a superman. (I may consider to change into another outfit if I were a real superman….hum)
