A six button CDG Homme Plus shirt with polka dot detailing in white and navy blue. It features a peter pan collar. While the collar reminds me of a girl’s school uniform, it’s unusual to see it on mens shirts. Image from Yahoo Japan.

I tried this own experiementation at home. I got some paper, and I tried squishing out paint from the tube, then pressing it and unfolding. It’s a load of fun.

I am obsessed about this brand and their designer Rei Kawakubo. Comme des Garcons is a fashion brand that break rules in garment construction for men and women.

What strikes me most about her work is her advertisements. Kawakubo uses suggestion. This is something I want to learn from studying her works.  Abstract images encourage one to figure out what’s going on;  just like her clothes.

I love this ad. I think fashion ads don't have have to be all photoshoped models to define beauty.

Fashion ads don't have to be all photoshoped models to define beauty.I love how the image suggests a spirit, or idea about the design.

 

I love how the visuals make you think about how this idea connects to clothes.

I love how her images try to capture an abstract idea or feeling about a collection.

Vittorio Fiorucci really inspires me because his approach to making posters is fun. He does many of his designs by using paper cut outs. As a Montreal designer, his designs are seen on today as the Le Chateau bag from the 1980s.

I was finding it challenging to represent hunger as an image. I keep thinking hearts and stomaches, or spoons shaped as hearts.

I was worried that the fork would look like a devil's pitch fork :P

More logo decisions. Don't forks look like hands?

This image above is my cut outs of paper used to later be scanned.  I learned about this technique when I studied Vittorio Fiorucci who designed the Le Chateau logo. His posters were all based on paper cut outs. It’s fun, and it makes for more organic approach to drawing.

Here is where I would imagine my poster being placed. It would be in a bustop ad, so that a community would be able to see it. Secondly, it would be placed in a grocery store.
