  Information graphics


TOP: Grace Au Yong meticulously researches the history of typography and lays out the history in a linear fashion to illustrate the progression of time in this information graphics assignment. Grace's infographics described a brief history of typography from the 1400s to the recent development in 2008 including the type style used in President Obama's campaign.

BOTTOM:Poh Wee Koon illustrates that within a minute many things could take place especially to the earth, the amount of distance traveled for a person as well as a scenario in the office. This assignment allows the students to combine visuals and text to represent data or knowledge to lucidly explain complex information.

Book jacket


Students are to create a book jacket which includes the front and back covers, spine as well the flaps. They need to pick a historical character (dead or alive). They are encouraged to create their own imagery and they also need to think of a title for the book and write the text for the back cover and the flaps. The deliverable must be a digital print out wrapped around a physical book that will best convey the story of your historical character.

Vanessa Chong combined real cloth with paper for her jacket while Hendric Tay featured a retractable film strip on his book jacket.

Type is image, Image is Type


This assignment was an opportunity for the students to showcase themselves as an active creator who engages the larger society in which they function. The objective is to link typography with images in exciting and innovative ways by self reflecting to discover their inner strength and weaknesses through a set of reflective questions. From there, they explore ways of visualizing through three different frameworks:
1) Behavior and Actions
2) Knowledge and Skills
3) Assumptions and Beliefs

TOP: Using her grandmother as a model with some major editing in Photoshop, Karyn Tay wishes to communicate that as we age, we gain wisdom and experiences but too much emphasis has been placed on beauty on the outside instead of the inside. Hence, the tagline in hand written form reads, "Beauty is imperfection."

BOTTOM: Jeanette Lim through a mysteriously quiet background with a loud explosion of type whereby the word "Unpredictable" explodes from the left onwards tries to communicate that in life we should be ready for unpredictable and sometimes unpleasant things to happen.

Type is image, Image is Type


Clockwise from top: Rasyida Samsudin wishes to travel the world and with the different flags that represent South America, she carefully shapes these countries into the shape of her foot to communicate the idea of her future journey.

Samantha Mary DeSilva feels that through every emotion that can seemingly tear us down, we will somehow gain enough courage and gumption to charge forward which seems like a rebirth.

Kathryn Cornell, an exchange student from Canada expresses her idea about one's uncertain future as deconstructed text arranged in a series of steps that lead to a silhouette character with the sky behind her back.

Lee Eileen's idea of one excelling is communicated through the metaphor of flying a kite to be synonymous with the saying that "sky is the limit" for us to reach and it is, in fact, an infinity.
