Massimo Vignelli Poster

Typography poster inspired by Massimo Vignelli’s colors and grid method. This poster was printed and placed outside on display of City Tech’s library. In our class assignment, we had to pick a quote from our favorite designer and create posters using the grid technique. Originally I was trying to place things to fill the space but still align, at the end of the class I figured that I could tilt the text and still keep it aligned. The interesting shape created by the quote looked similar to a skyline which made it more meaningful and dynamic since Massimo Vignelli moved to New York later to work.

Foundation Drawing

These are my best drawings from foundation drawing! I learned perspective in this class.


I’m from New York, my interest in art began last April in 2018 when I finally got a tablet. This caused me to begin taking art more seriously as a potential profession or something that I would like to work on and improve gradually. The reason why I am in communication design is that I would like to sharpen my skills when it comes to drawing. I want to become a concept designer or an illustrator when I receive my bachelor’s degree. For now, I am aiming to freelance since I do not have my degree yet.
During my free time as an artist, I do both digital and watercolor. I like to invest my time in drawing backgrounds or collecting inspirations. I draw with a range of colors from pastel colors to saturated colors depending on my mood. Throughout my years of experiencing various video games, I was inspired to aim to become a concept designer that draws things a person can typically find in an art book (environment, character design, level, gatcha games). My goal in five to ten years would be to have a portfolio containing various art pieces that could be used for game design.
