SUSTAINED INQUIRY

THE START

Getting lost in ideas and possibilities

When I'm playing around on illustrator and photoshop in my free time, I'm usually taking idols or photos that I took and make collages such as the ones shown to the left.

In the beginning I was thinking of using photography as my main approach to my sustained inquiry, but I was stuck thinking about taking what I had and finding a way to incorporate it into my pieces, instead of planning what kind of shots I wanted and going out to take them.

I decided to start focusing on a different aspect of the collages: the text. I make a lot of lyric collages and layouts so I started with making some lyric posters.

LYRIC POSTERS

The first one I made was based on the song "Somehow" by DAY6

I pulled a quote from the lyrics, translated from Korean. Unlike other collages that I have made in the past, I wanted to make sure the photos I used were my own, and DAY6 is a band whose concert I attended and took decent photos of. So I decided to use one of their songs

The second quote poster I made was based on the song "All Alone" also by DAY6, the tone and meaning to the lyrics didn't really suit the images from the concert, so I decided to focus more on the typography and making it more of an actual lyric poster.

The lyrics didn't really serve as proper body text, and in the "I'm Alone" piece, I thought the most interesting part of it was the title of the song. So I thought of focusing instead on the titles of songs, which brought me to album covers instead. In the past we had our album cover project which is where I got the idea. I started focusing on the typography.

ALBUM COVERS

I changed the typeface from a sans serif to a serif because I felt that gravity being physics and science related, would be better suited in a serif font. Then I made only the 'g' the main point to create emphasis.

The next cover I did was Worldwide by Jay Park. Looking at the word itself, I decided to take the "wide" and increase the tracking 

The first album cover I made was Gravity by DAY6. I tried a few different things, but the main idea was to convey the concept of gravity or something falling--having the text be falling.
