some stuff i forgot to post about
again im just kind of having fun and experimenting
I love collage so I want to see what I can do with the above design wise
I’ve wanted to digitally remake one of my favorite paintings i made last year but gave up on it until now. I thought it would be basic or not as interesting as the painting but I’m really happy with how this came out. Will add text in that open purple area later
I’ve also been really inspired by James Victoire’s book Feck Perfuction and been thinking about some of his quotes
im actually excited about design again which is nice 🙂
(an update on my second side hustle )
Here are the final planner designs:
The budget so far:
For the past few years I’ve made and refined my own planner design from scratch, but this year I’ve realized I need to go back to the drawing board and design a new system for planning, this time to fit the college demands of friends and I.
The main problems I noticed:
- Limited space in certain places and excessive or unused space in others.
- The planner was designed for my high school task flow, not college. In college, my tasks don’t refresh each day or every other day like they did in high school.
- The planner has half the amount of space designated for each weekend day than is designated for each week day. In high school this was fine, but in college I have a hard time planning what I’ll do each day of the weekend with this amount of space.
I animated a set of potion reveal gifs for the mockup in after effects. I animated a mask’s path in order to slowly reveal the bottle’s color as if the potion was filling up.
I thought it would be fun to make the logo have a hand picking the dot of the “i” off the name Pickery or the “i” in potions. The first couple iterations I did were hand drawn in photoshop and had some awkward gaps and spacing. I brought them into illustrator and image traced them to keep their hand drawn feel. I worked on the spacing once I played around in illustrator.
For the sake of putting my side hustle in the show, I put some glitter, water, food coloring, and fake flowers in glass bottles that looked like potion bottles to create props to put around the computer screen. One of the bottles featured the logo cut out in black vinyl.
