Since I took all classes remotely from California this semester, this fall semester was definitely different from previous semesters.

This semester was full of experimenting, exploring, researching, and discovering different types of artists and my design practices by collaborating with others. It was difficult for me to work in groups especially because I was not on campus and the time difference. However, working with other people allowed me to learn how to communicate and think about how my design blends with other designers’ designs as well.

The use of non-linear narrative is a technique that portrays events out of chronological order — often without an exact beginning and end.

Develop a vignette or vignettes that feature a non-linear narrative and whose message is based on a vision of community. How you choose to interpret ‘community’ is up to you.

When I first heard the word “community,” I first thought about me. Before there is a community or a group of individuals, there is me, and my identity that represents who I am to others. …

Motion graphics, editorial design, branding, experience design, typography, etc. This list is just a few possibilities of graphic design. As students studying design, we have experienced or have seen other students experience uncertainty in their graphic design career path.

There are so many different types of design fields open for graphic designers, but there are too many choices. And sometimes too many choices confuse our decisions.

In our conversations, we all had different interpretations, process, understanding, and meaning of graphic design. …


I treated this research video as my personal inspiration diary. I enjoyed this practice of researching different artists every week and seeing different inspirations all compiled together at the end felt as if I finished writing my diary. I wanted to highlight and focus on the artists’ works in the video as much as possible; therefore, I placed the images in the center of the frame. As much as I thought the artists’ works are important, I treated dates equally important because it was a way for me to see my thread of exploration.

When I first read Gertrude Stein’s Tender Buttons, I was very hesitant to decide which paragraph I wanted to focus on for my video. From the beginning, I wanted to create a story or some kind of narrative to show Stein’s use of vocabulary…


When Anni and I first had met virtually, we both had so many ideas that we wanted to explore in our project. While we were looking for a way to tie all these ideas together, we wanted to try infographics design to organize our ideas and data we found from research. We first began to brainstorm our ideas in mindmaps and collected artists and researched artists and their works that we got inspired by as well.


Before starting filming and collecting videos, I spent a lot of time in sketching and writing down thoughts and ideas that came into my mind about the word “dance.” At first, I thought dance can’t be expressed in any other ways than physically dancing in front of a camera. However, after contemplating more about the meaning of dance, I realized that dance is something more simple. Dance is a form of communication and language that translates words into movements. …
