Him + Her
A love story between a boy and a girl. My curiosity of how my parents met got the better of me, and I designed this book to capture their childhood, and recorded the decisions and steps that each person took that led them to one another. One half of the book starts with him, and the other half starts with her. Much like our memory, as the story on each side progresses, the photos alternate between blurry and sharp and then opens to a photograph of the couple together.
An extension to OCADU Student Press’ Shift publication, Rivet is a biannual zine, dedicated to showcasing student talents. A limited edition of 200 copies were printed on risograph and the covers were later screen printed.
I co-directed the project as editor, curator and designer.

Oh, Be A Fine Girl, Kiss Me
I combined my love of mystery with mythology and created a zine based on the constellation Orion. It tells the story of Orion’s death in the P.O.V. of the individual characters or stars that make up the constellation. The stars like patterns are scattered throughout the zine to resemble splatters of blood. The title is also a astrological mnemonic for star classification, which was fitting, due to the romantic nature of the story. The pages were french folded, and hand sewn to link the stars that make up each constellation and bound with a Japanese stab binding.
Above Ground Web Page
A self-initiated proposal : a redesign of Above Ground Art Supplies' homepage. With this design, I suggest a more user friendly way to shop. Along with the search and shopping tools conveniently located near the top, the users or shoppers are immediately greeted with a slideshow gallery of current sales followed by what's new in stores. This allows the shoppers to see, at first glance, great deals and new products without going to a new page.
