My visit at the Cooper Hewitt museum was an exciting and unexpected experience. I was excited to see a museum solely based on design and not fine art, unexpected because when I walked through the door they gave a wand and told me that I can save the work I like and look at them through the museum website. I’ve never heard of anything like this and while going around the museum looking at the illustrations, graphic designs, and industrial designs, it was amazing. I enjoyed being there and a lot of work I liked there were propaganda illustrations and minimalist graphic designs.
This is the illustration along with the quote that i’ve used for the visual quote project and it was a fun project to do because I got to make an illustration along with looking through the quotes that were memorable and find which were the best to use. The only challenge I would say I went through is deciding if to use color or not for the illustration along with what type of font should I use that would go well with the illustration but in the end I found the font and I chose not to use any color or light and shadow and decided to use the font called “Stixgeneral”.
These are some of the few ideas that I’ve had relating to quote when I saw this quote the main thing I wanted to focus was man trying to improve himself but going through pain while doing so I looked up some photos of men doing physical exercise but looking in pain while doing it. I also did some small illustrations of a marble sculpting itself but looking as though it’s struggling while sculpting itself.
