The Magical World of Dr. Seuss
As part of the GRAPHICS week in Sydney, there was a free Dr. Seuss exhibition to celebrate the release of the new Art of Dr. Seuss book.
Although I didn’t discover Dr. Seuss until well into my adolescence, you can’t help but be captivated by the quirky & wonderful characters and rhymes in his children’s books. I think my favourite is ‘Oh, the places you’ll go’ because I love adventures :)
I’ve posted a whole heap of photos on my Instagram gallery > look up ‘Peiwen K’
I have the great pleasure to put my creative skills to good use to come up with some designs for one of my best friend’s upcoming wedding. Congratulation Richard & Jess - you two are just the loveliest people I’ve ever come across and I’m sure the beach wedding will be amazing!
*Side note: sadly, Rich did not win the battle to use Star Wars The Imperial March as their song to march down the aisle on their big day :P
A WEEK OF GOODBYE
Last Friday was a sad day for us at TST, as we said our goodbye and farewell to a few much beloved team members at work. Alas, it was not all bad news - we ordered take-away pizzas for our last team lunch, rockets full of sweets were given as gifts (I mean this literally, our managers got popping candies in rocket containers :P) and let’s not forget this ‘family portrait’ that I did to remember the good times :)
The Frank Chimero Experience
So, I promised that earlier this week that I’ll do a more detailed post about the Frank Chimero talk I went to as part of the Portable Talks series for 2012. Instead of rambling on about how amazing the experience was, I whipped up a little illustration based on some of my favourite parts of the talk.
I got a copy of Frank’s book - ‘The Shape of Design’ on the day, which was entirely funded by his Kickstarter project. You can get a glimpse of the first chapter here: http://frankchimero.com/ It’s not a pretty picture book but rather, one that I think designers (all creatives in fact) would be able to benefit from - how to reach that higher level of thinking to create better designs.
I can’t wait to see the next project Frank Chimero got up his sleeves!
