It is my first advertising poster and brochure design at Seneca. I love Comic so when I got this assignment I was thinking no more than one second and then I pick this event for my topic. I was struggling with the composing of the brochure because, it should be folded in the certain way. When my first printing came out, I found that I made mistakes. I was confusing the way of folding so that the date of events appeared on wrong pages. It didn’t follow the sequence of the reading spread. This experience gives me strong impression of brochure design because I paid double price for reprinting my work.
Beihong Xu is one of the most famous artists in China. He is good at drawing animal, especially for horse. Personally, I really like his drawing about horses because they are so vivid and realistic. I created this publication for him by using Chinese traditional elements. Personal stamp is the one of the most important symbols that be used in Chinese water painting by artists. I used his personal stamp pattern to associate to each page in order to build a national style atmosphere with the entire publication.

The challenge of designing trade show display for me is to choose the prefect images to making audience get the resonance in order to arouse their interest and impulse of purchase. I took plenty of photos in Toronto down, at campus and on the street. I took this nice photo in a small coffee shop. This cute young couple was sitting next to me. Honestly, I have to admit it is a amazing accidental coincidence because the purpose that I came to the coffee shop was just for garbing some food and taking a rest before I met those two nice people.
This assignment requires us to create a banner size video for Memory Game. As we know, the game is quite simple. My idea for this video is making it looks cool and fashion in order to give audience a new feeling from the game.
I got a lot of fun from this assignment. Each member of our team is from different country. Our idea is mixing the food and drinks that from different countries and sharing experiences together. We want to make the video looks like a living show about different cultures. We went to Toronto Island to got a good view as background. While we were taking the video, we were learning a lot of life skill as well. The only thing that was unexpected was we almost got rid out of our batteries because the time spent on island was longer then we planed.
Eros Coffee has the long history and still keeps it popularity in the modern city. The idea of the logo is from neon lights so that vivid color is the point for the whole design in order to make it looks fashion, mystery and special.

In this case, I chose three different images as backgrounds in order to change scenes between outdoor to indoor. The challenge of this work was in the first scene. It was an overview of the whole the castle. Because I made many layers and add several items with animation in this scene, it was difficult to adjust when the camera was tracking in very fast .
It is my first 2.5D Animation at Seneca. Parallax for me is new and interesting. I like the way that using photos we took and making them looks like 3D layout. The most important thing for Parallax I think is to control the speed of animation between different layers. We consider all of things in a image are in different position and distance. Adjusting the speed is the best way to make the illusion looks closer to realistic world.
First animation done at Seneca. This is very simple one. I made it by Photoshop and exported it as GIF format. When I was working at KONAMI, I used made animation by Maya and usually for characters so that it is kind of new thing for me.
