These are some icons I made a few months ago but didn't get around to uploading. I didn't submit these to the portal because I don't think they would like it much there, but I imagine the switch from cmyk to rgb ruined the quality on this picture, so here's a link of a cmyk version, just in case!Now you just need programs for those icons.
Some sort of diving app, I guess!
Alrighty, here's a poster I made for a scholarship competition! The theme for it is "You can create tomorrow" and the prerequisites for the competition are to make a poster around that theme, and write a 300-500 word statement on a personal interpretation of the theme.
I know the shading is off and stuff, I'm still learning, and I messed up, but I think it looks neat, so I'm done with it. Plus, I've already submitted it, so there's not much I can do now anyway.
So, uh... yeah! Here's my statement and poster:
Space! Art! Adventure! The paintbrush is a universal symbol of creativity and visual arts, while the rocket ship is a universal symbol of unexplored territory, of the future. In this poster, I wanted to create a catchy graphic which would amalgamate these two concepts of creativity and the future while retaining aesthetic finesse. We see that art helps to drive ideas in a way that directly affects and correlates with the future.
Many people carry personal ideas and tastes of what art signifies to them, and lately, the ideas of art and technology crossing over have been growing more prevalent. The rocket ship also signifies the integration of technology into art and design, as more and more ideas involving art revolve around technology. Digital art is a fairly recent venture, and as technology expands, so does the need for art created digitally. The influence of digital art upon traditional art and other digital art interestingly shows how we can continue to evolve using old ideas, new ideas, and reinterpretations of those ideas.
The paintbrush also represents the colour and influence that we leave upon the world as we learn more. The bright colours in the foreground are like the splashes of paint and the imprint that we leave on the new and unknown. It contrasts the dark and empty void that is the background, and the contrast helps the foreground to stand out, just as art stands out in what sometimes seems like an empty void. Art can help to give meaning and inspiration to people, it provokes emotion that could otherwise remain dormant.
The relationship between creativity and the future is very synergetic and circular. Creativity changes the future, and the future inspires new creativity. This inspiration can help drive people to create tomorrow. Anybody can create tomorrow, and I believe my poster demonstrates my drive for excellence and that I am more than ready to help create tomorrow.
