The creative type

2/2/12


Here's a little something I've been working on for the past few days. I used to indulge in layout-making for the school newspaper during my years in high school, and I guess I sort of miss it... sorry for the excessively narcissistic (and repetitive) pictures, but I'm hoping to find a pattern in my choices of dress, and of course, just to let some creative juices out.

I've also been horrible with answering emails and comments, etc., EEK. The stress probably won't be relieved until mid-February, but I'll try to get through everything before the weekend starts. I'm determined to relax at least one day of the week! Can't wait to get my eyes glued to this used book I picked up from an old bookstore in downtown Seattle. Tea, macarons, and leisure reading - my kinda wild weekend.

Wow this is incredible - it looks so good! I've been very interested in layout-making lately, and have been researching about it, trying to learn how to make things that look this good. Do you have any advice on where to look or where to start? Also, what software do you use?
Happy week-end!

very cool! I love layout-design too :)

I was so excited to see you in Forever21's new design collection! Congratulations! I was wondering why you don't mention these kinds of features on your blog? or like how you were in David Choi's MV (which was sooo cool btw!)? I just think they're such awesome opportunities/features. I'm sure you have your reasons, but I was jw x)
anyways, congrats again :)

Vy said...

I saw your pictures on Forever 21 today! You looked really nice and the clothes looked great (:

wow, this looks so professionally done! i think it's actually something that could be explored further - like a mini magazine of street looks or something. i'm sure many fashionistas would love to collab :D
