To My Future Self, a collection of hand bound booklets, narrates three defining aspects of my life that together establish me as an individual - design, travel and my outlook on life. The content is a compilation of excerpts and quotes from personal journal entries, life lessons, tweets, goal lists, bucket lists and other personal pieces I’ve documented over my life. The photography illustrating the covers and spreads reveal a spectrum of imagery painting my early childhood up to my recent travel experiences.

Q

nihongostudy asked:

Heyy, I really love your work. I wanted to ask about a notebook which was in a few of your everyday items photographs. It has cats on it, I believe, and is next to the 'bullshit' notebook... Did you make it? Or did you buy it? And if so, where from? Thank you so so so much and I hope you continue to make lovely stuff!

A

Thanks for taking interest in my work!
The notebook you’re referring to is handmade featuring illustrations I did of various dog breeds from an earlier project (https://www.behance.net/gallery/Get-to-know-your-dog-Infographic/6444761). I may be making a few limited copies of the notebook in the future for sale.

Cheers!
Jiani

Growing up I’ve always shown enthusiasm for making things by hand, it started early with origami, lego, perler beads and sticker making. Over the years it’s translated into a key interest for package design, book binding, sewing and papercrafts. This personal project combines my curioristy for paper, a knowledge in package form and design, and of course a love for ice cream.

The past two weeks I’ve been working on this series of notebooks revolved around the theme of fear and anxiety. Growing up I feared a lot of things and it’s only been in the past few years that I’ve begun to challenge myself to face those anxieties. 

The books feature quotes expressed through various typographic and visual approaches. The process in developing the cover designs involved breaking out of design rules and boundaries that I had familiarized myself with for years. It was about being fearless in bringing in tacky neons, letting the type run into the background, breaking the grid and to be explorative and curious along the process.  The past two weeks I’ve been working on this series of notebooks revolved around the theme of fear and anxiety.

This week I decided to give notebook-making a break and instead extend my previous photo documentation of bookbinding and everyday essentials into a ‘serlf-portrait’ series. The photos look at items and accessories I naturally find myself pairing together in day-to-day use. And draws attention to similarities between items in materials, colours, and moods. I’m thinking of further exploring these series of photos by including things like.. meals I usually cook for myself for breakfast, lunch, dinner. Or items I associate with work juxtaposing with items I associate with play.  This week I decided to give notebook-making a break and instead extend my previous photo documentation of bookbinding and everyday essentials into a ‘serlf-portrait’ series.

I was cleaning up my old hard drive the other day and came across a project I did in first-year design. It was for my Visual Language class and dealt with using simple shapes and a limited palette to communicate the various design elements and principles.
I decided to challenge myself to approach the project once more to see where it would take me. The result is a hand-bound notebook and featuring 13 sigatures, each outlining one element or principle of design.  I was cleaning up my old hard drive the other day and came across a project I did in first-year design.
