The assignment for this piece was to focus on time and create an abstraction that uses the senses.
My concept was how time seems to stop when one is experiencing pain.
In particular this focuses on stomach pain because its something I regularly encounter, whether it’s mense related or digestive, or other sensitivity to food.

The “button” in the sky is a saltshaker top. The tomatos are green. My teacher called them “ethereal puffs” – Its funny he says that because he has a hippie vibe (walks barefoot in class and things like that).

Exercise in merging images using Photoshop.

Wedding Invitation

Filed under: Design — Annie at 11:50 am on Thursday, March 23, 2006

Lately, I’ve had less to say and more to show. This has been a very artistically fruitful period for me. Very productive and exploratory. A friend in my small group (a group of people who are reading books about God in West LA) is getting married and she asked me if I could help her design her invitation set. So that will include,
rsvp card,
two maps,
ceremony program,
table placecards,
thank you cards.
It’s been very thrilling and stressing. I’ve been learning in real life how to interact with a client and trying to find that balance of meeting their deadline and trying to create something that I, as the designer, am completely satisfied with. I feel that undue pressure to create something “good” because my name is on it- its on 400 invitations, to be exact.

Well, atleast for now, I can show what the invitation turned out looking like. We had a lot of talk about which color ribbon to use, including a mad search for the perfect shade of purple. in the end, I suggested going back to ivory, in order to bring out the mauve paper, which she loves.
