TBD* at CCA
TBD* is an in-house, student-run design studio at California College of Arts (CCA) that provides pro bono design service to Bay Area nonprofits. I was nominated to be one of the first group of designers at TBD*. After co-created the studio’s identity, I animated the symbol and a social media post. I also designed and built TBD*’s website.
Chimera Logo Animation
Chimera is the mascot and symbol of CCA. A Chimera is a mythical creature made up of lion, goat, and snake—three distinct identities that culminate in a single form and represent an apex of strength, knowledge, and skill. In 2017, a leader of Chimera student council asked me to animate their logo and bring Chimera to life.
Keynote Presentation: Spotting Fake News
A class presentation can be boring when one presents a research paper. This was my final presentation for my media history class, where I presented my research on fake news and methods to spot them. I intentionally animated most elements and embedded gifs so that my classmates wouldn’t fall asleep.
L3R Video Show
Graphic Design department at CCA hosts Level three review every semester. L3R show is the end of semester show where juniors exhibit their work to the public. In 2016, I was asked to create video transitions between the digital works based on the existing visual system of the show.
Just like learning alphabet for the first time, Type classification was fun to study as a graphic designer. I wanted to make it enjoyable for others to learn too, so I transformed the knowledge into a ‘Type fashion show.’
Max CCA: Hello, Fall 2016
Max CCA is a community platform built by students for students. As the founder and designer of the team, I created this video to summarize the highlights of Max’s first semester at CCA and introduce #IAmMax. This was the first motion graphic animation I have ever created.
