- Take pictures of people doing everyday things but from above.
- Make the routine thing like a story.
- Take a specific topic like "School" or other mundane things that people have to do.
- Make these topics interesting by taking pictures from birds eye view and spread out the materials needed to do each individual activity to make the picture full.
- Try buying a selfie-stick like tool but for DSLRs on either e-bay or Amazon.
- GoPro Hero 4 or other action cameras will work too.
- This will work since they have sticks made for them to extend, plus they have good quality pictures.
- Due to my large interest in music, I could do above pictures of people playing different instruments.
The topic I've chosen is "The World is Flat". I got the idea from watching a considerable amount of Wes Anderson movies and Casey Neistat videos on YouTube. This idea is important to me because having been in design for a while, I realize that organisation and neatness is one of the most important aspects in a piece of art. The world at a flat perspective and from above gives me as much as creative control as I can while keeping everything in one perspective which makes the piece very aesthetically pleasing to enjoy. I will make my voice show by incorporating the daily life of a burmese person into these pieces making the pieces one of a kind. As for technique, I will have to find a way to take pictures from above since I do not have a handle that can take pictures from above yet. The planning will be the most important because if I can't find a way to take pictures from above, the location will have to be the main factor in allowing me to take pictures from a birds eye view.
Martina Cavalieri is a 26 year old graphic designer from Carrara, Italy. She is focused on branding, graphic design, icon design and typography. Martina is currently studying at the School of Architecture in Genoa. She is the social media manager and the website KOIKOIKOI. Martina also has a website she runs to show off her artwork called Martineken. Martina is an avid social media user and uses these tools to spread her work to people all around the world. Behance and Instagram are the main tools she uses apart from her own website to get her artwork out into the world.
Martina Cavalieri focuses on the icon design before she starts working on her logos. After the icon design, she moves on towards the typography to fit the whole piece together. Martina incorporates vector aspects to her work. She does not that much completed pieces out in the world but she is working on her portfolio for her website. This is because Martina takes time with each piece to make it as perfect as possible. I chose Martina because I fell in love with her Carrara City Branding Concept portfolio. The portfolio was very aesthetically pleasing for me as well as her color choices which did not distract me from the logo itself.
I made this artwork based on the work of Martina Cavalieri. She also incorporated vector design into her logos which I am familiar with. The icon designs she does are always minimalistic, aesthetically pleasing and has something to do with the product itself. Ataxia is a small group that my friends and I created, so I decided to make a logo for it. The logo was designed to have the three letters ATX in it since it would be the short form of Ataxia itself. If the logo was looked at from three different angles, the viewer would see the words A, T, and a half X. I think this came out very well since I could have some sort of hidden meaning towards the logo instead of just drawing an image that relates to the group itself.
Fabricio Rosa Marques
Fabricio Rosa Marques is an artist from Berlin that has a large and vast experience in graphic design. He specializes in vector art and has many different social media websites where he posts them. His personal favorites would be dribbble, Behance and Instagram because they allow him to share his artwork to the people. Fabricio also has his own website where he posts his portfolios for people to see called fabric8.com. He has worked with companies to make phone app UIs and flyers and other work.
Fabricio usually incorporates vector design into his artwork may it be an application UI, flyers or even a website. Fabricio uses thick lines to outline his artwork which gives each piece it’s own unique look. Fabricio also works on animated artwork but just like his other artwork, he incorporates vector design into it. He has been in the design business for over ten years and it takes him about one week to two weeks to finish one piece. I chose this artist because he has experience in not just character design with vector artwork but other categories like flyers, applications, websites designs and animation as well. I have always been a fan of vector art and have tried my hand in it as well.
I made this artwork based on the work of Fabricio Rosa Marques. Fabricio not only focuses on character design while making vector images but a wide-variety of choices. He has worked on website designs, application design and flyers and much more. I decided to make a flyer for a school I knew very well about but incorporated vector art into the design. I think the final product came out very well, with the colors of purple and gold matching very well. The design I made on top of the flyer really tied the whole flyer together instead of a flyer with three different panels.
Eric Kim is a student at UCLA who is studying Sociology. He created a blog to teach people the ways of street photography after each experience since he couldn’t find such a blog when he tried to start street photography.
Eric Kim is famous for his blog where he teaches people how to take street photography. He combines the shots with his sociology skills to get amazing images of random strangers on the street. His eye for design makes pictures of things on the street interesting to look at as well. Eric Kim has been one of the best street photographers and has over 200 pieces concerning with this subject. I chose this artist compared to the other artists because Eric teaches the consumers of his art how to actually follow along in his footsteps as well. He goes in depth and in detail about each topic which makes it easy for us to become as good as he is in street photography.
I made this artwork based on the work of Eric Kim. Eric Kim, unlike other photographers in the list that I chose, does not only focus on taking pictures of people but also focuses on taking picture of things you would see in your daily life but in a very aesthetically pleasing way. This is what I did with my piece, instead of having a focus on a random stranger, I made the focus of the picture boxes that you would see in your normal daily life. I think the image was successful and post-editing made the picture more unique and better to look at.
Born in March 25 1981, Casey Neistat is a famous 33 year old vlogger who runs a very famous YouTube channel named after himself. Casey always dabbled in video-making but the video that brought him into the mainstream was iPod’s Dirty Secret. This video about the iPod’s irreplaceable battery caused a large swarm of media attention and brought his YouTube channel to light.
After the media exposure, Casey was exposed to a world of possibilities with sponsors and travel companies supporting him all around the world. This gave Casey to opportunity to make amazing videos while taking amazing pictures in the process. Casey became famous for his Wes Anderson like shots on both video and photos and has hundreds of pieces using this flat aspect towards his art. This has been an idea that a lot of people have tried in the past but Casey was one of the first amateur videographers to actually pull the flat aspect off.
I made this artwork based on the work of Casey Neistat. If you are familiar with his videos he does a lot of still shots where the pictures are taken from the top instead of the neutral front. The shot I did was of my friend Eric sleeping on my bed but just like Casey Neistat, I took the image from the top. I did this to accomplish my flat world aspect as well as my birds-eye view aspect as well. I feel like the end result turned out very well and the post-editing made the image look a lot more aesthetically pleasing to look at.
Ben Brown is a 26-year-old professional kayaker who decided to take a hiatus on his sports interest to pursue his other hobbies like traveling and photography. He lives in Surrey, United Kingdom but also lives part-time in South Africa to stay with his girlfriend Nicole Eddy. Even though Ben decided to take a rest from kayaking, during his time in the profession, he won multiple World Championships.
Ben has always had an eye in design as you can see from his well made and aesthetically pleasing videos. He uses this to his advantage while taking photos and applies the skill when taking architectural photos. Ben has made multiple pieces concerning with architecture and takes a short time to produce each piece since he gets most of the job done after taking the photo. Ben gives a reasonable amount of time to put the piece through post-editing for the best viewing pleasure. Ben, when taking architecture photos try to incorporate moving objects as part of the scene to make the still image of architecture into a moving one.
I made this artwork based on the work of all the three artists I chose for this category. I used the angled aspect from Ben Brown, the color scheme of Hiroaki Fukuda and the editing style of Finn Beales. For the piece, I mainly used the style of Ben Brown where he captures the image of only a portion of an object to make it look unique and different from what the actual product is. The picture I took is the inside of a grand piano. I took a close-up of the board to make it not look like a piano but an architectural product of it’s own design. The colors of gold and red made this piece unique since it’s rare for an architectural piece to have the colors of gold and red.
