Wedding / Reception invitation, 2011

WI - Gavin&TLing - 00 copyAnother self directed project to create a wedding and receiption invitation for a good mate’s wedding.

The design were based on given information from the couple: their favourite color and intend graphic elements (the tree).

The design had put forward to prepare for print, but due to the overseas printer constrain they have to take the pick from the given template.

But afterall, it is still a good practice work to add into my portfolio collection.

Magazine Layout, 2011

Magazine Cover - NEWiCON - 00 CoverI guess for most print designer, there’s an irresistible desire to design a magazine cover. My dream job would be working for a well-known magazine publisher as their layout designer, but as said… it’s only a dream. The enormous stress that a designer in a publish-house having to bear is unbelievable.

These is just a tryout that I did as part of my design-practice (having to sharpen your tools sometime), trying to design a cover and a internal spread for a magazine. It is based on one of the oldest Malaysia base Man’s Fashion Magazine that I like, and recently it had seem to be decline in its design flair and content that thus attract subscribers.
