Vector Texture Practice

As promised, i’ve made a texture design on illustrator. It was really fun playing with textures. The skills that i’ve applied onto the artwork are appearance panel [ fill, overlays, multiply and gradient ] and texture effect such as grain and texturizer. Anyhow, I did not know that illustrator had this function. I’m really looking forward to know what illustrator could do.

I’ve practiced my skills in a tutorial website known as Vectips. It guided me throughout the whole process of my studies. Credits to the owner of Vectips. Below are my artwork.

Vector Graphic Texture

Today i would like to speak about texture in design. In my recent research, i found out that texture plays an important role in background of a design platform. For an example of media are using it are website, posters and motion graphics.

Texture means the feel, appearance or consistency of a surface or a substance. In my opinion, without a texture in design, graphic would look very plain and simple. You can see clearly that it is very digital and it looks like it is done in windows paint tool. Whereas, with the use of texture, it would provide more impact and professional to the digital artwork. Stay tune for vector texture practice.

I’m really inspired by graphic forms because to me it’s very intriguing. The sense of being able to touch and look at the process after every tiny details gives me absolute excitement. Maybe that is the reason why i love going out to various art exhibitions.

Below are the Art Exhibition that i joined previously :

I could say that i’m proud of the illustration that i did for ” Go go Eco “. The results of the illustration turn out to be better than i expected. Go go Eco is a interactive media website that aims to educate young children about the importance of recycling.

Before kickstart, I started off referencing on a interactive website of the same agenda. The websites that i explored are [ http://www.marukin-ad.co.jp/ecoego ] and [ http://mini-mundi.com ]. I observe the colors and design that are used in their website. By doing so, i could know the styles that i’m supposed to apply.

What media do you see yourself producing in two years time? What research could you conduct in order to inform this future practice?

I wish to produce a great digital artworks in 2 years time. I believe that i will explore, observe and collect alot of cool artworks to absorb knowledge in the present & future.

This is me

Expresso - Members

This is an image of me. In a way to describe my personality, I’m an outgoing and naughty person and lastly I love adventures. I took this image from a final year project that i’ve done this year. Expresso, it is a social media website for you to  express your happiness among the community and interact with your family and friends.

We started off with a team of 4 individuals. The individuals are Andrew Kong, Sherryn Toong, Chia Peng, and me. Our objective is to express and spread goodness between human connections. Everyone of us share the common urges to make the world a happier and fun place to live. Therefore we would like to provide a service that could help the community. Our sites may look simple, but we believed simplicity is the best way to make people understand and communicate with each other. Just like childhood times, everything is simple.
