The metaphor

This session we discuss how typography and objects could be altered to form a metaphor. I am sharing the metaphor grahics which I have done for Kabiri. 

Rocket Jewellery
Creating a spaceship sky dazzled by rocket jewellery. Using the rocket-like jewellery pieces or some part of jewellery which can be combined and arranged.
Sale Banner
Utilizing jewellery to compose typo of ‘mid sale banner’. I have got this idea, inspired by starring at one of sale jewellery; the triangle gold plated earrings that makes me of think of A. Hey, I could make word SALE from them! Let’s digging for more!
So proudly present,
Take also the tour of Kabiri website to see overall design. Here is the sneak peak:

Editor’s Favorites

Reviewing my internship in Kabiri, it has been 4 months working with lovely people there! One of my regular tasks is updating homepage banner seasonally. I am always happy to design Kabiri homepage and get excited through the process; choosing the strongest items from the designer, arranging the layout aesthetically, and putting them together to look well-blended overall. I love them all, yet personally I have my favorites.

The most favorite homepage banner

Inspired by her lookbook,
what I love- the shadow and fading effect emphasize the unpolished elegance jewellery pieces from Bjorg that inspired by myths, magic symbolism and romantic fantasy.

What I love– I simply heart a midnight blue Swarowski crystal set on rose gold ring! 
The best motion of homepage banner
What I love– Each images are intense and distinctive, however they blend perfectly as one unity. 
The best arrangement 
Setting the images into a nice layout seems very easy thing to do. In fact, there is several considerations. For instance: below are 6 jubilee jewels in Kabiri newsletter. It has to be on brand, vary in terms of jewellery categories, mutual color tone, etc.

Above are my favorites. So, what’s yours? Keep update the new design on Kabiri!

The identity system

TO ESTABLISH myself as an independent design professional, I am starting to create a distinctive identity system. I was inspired by this quotation,
A company hires you to be a guide through unfamiliar process.
You don’t know their business and they are unfamiliar with design.
The more familiar you become with their business, the more they trust your design.
Michael Bierut, Pentagram


The idea behind the concept is to restate the design process experience, which results new perspectives in every works.
This vision, we have no idea what it would come up, yet knowing how to start. An idea begins from a blank sheet of paper. The creative journey that takes curiosity, passion and awareness, which lead to inspiration. Those ideas are visualized, experimented and finally executed.
