Just look at this color wheel and think about how many possible color combinations there are… ENDLESS~~~

Today, I had a chance to step out of my comfort and enter the world of endless possibilities when it comes to graphic designing. Before, I kind of think beforehand and try follow a concrete vision. while approaching any task in my life in order to finish things in the shortest amount of time. This process is timely and efficient but costs me missing out all the fun during the process and possibly better solutions for things as well.

But today, I stepped out of that comfort zone (together with the help of Satoko-san) to work on and “play around” the different elements in designing a visual for our current promotional task. I came into tackling this task with certain vision including planned draft and specific style. Yet, too many times, I have changed things around and gone with the flow~ I’m pretty proud of myself because I have opened my mind and been more flexible.

Not just me being flexile with things, I also actively tried out many new possibilities while designing the post’s visual. (This part may sound too technical) From trying out different fonts, different colors, different level of transparency, to shifting the positions of the text (entirely out of my personal style), I have been able to tried them all during today’s creation process.

This internship has been continuously surprising me from its starting day and hopefully till the very end…

comment from the instructor

I am very glad that Linh-san took today’s experience positively. Some people get offended by being asked trying things. Linh-san had created a few different patterns of the visual before we went working together. I honestly like the direction she was taking. Thanks to the base she created, I think we could try other things as well. It was just matter of making every elements to do their job better. Theories exist because it is effective. But when multiple elements are placed on a plate, we need to use multiple theories so that each elements won’t disturb each other. And it was joyful working with her, because I have a feeling she noticed that I am not asking her to try something randomly but with certain reasons and theories. The most part of our job is like what Sherlock Holmes says “When you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth?”. Instead of chasing what it should be, it is more of eliminating “what we should NOT do”.
