Transcript of "Kara Kansaku | FIDM 2011 Portfolio"

  1. 1. Design PortfolioKara KansakuCreated with humor & a little love.
  2. 2. Media: Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, Freehand Illustration Monkey Majik10th Anniversary Album The objective of this project was to design a CD album of an artists of our choice. Monkey Majik, a Japanese pop-rock band, is a group that I am constantly inspired when I listen to their songs or watch their music videos. Instead of a photograph, an illustration that represents the four members was used to express the band’s unique music and personality. (Illustration by Kylie Kansaku) BEST 2000-2010
  3. 3. Media: Adobe IllustratorPulama EssenceSkin-Care Brand Packaging The Pulama Essences brand was inspired by the variety of natural resources that is available in Hawaii, which is where I was born and raised. My goal for this project was to design a local skin care line that would appeal to tourist, tourists, primarily Japanese, who are looking for a promising product made locally in Hawaii to bring home. “Pulama” means “cherish” in the Hawaiian language, and I felt it expresses the brand’s mission to produce a sustainable product that is also nourishing.

  4. 4. Media: Adobe IllustratorAmazoniaFashion Re-Branding The project objective was to re-brand a fashion portfolio and style guide. New fashion flats were produced to replace pieces that were not cohesive with the collection’s theme. This also gave me an understanding of how graphic design is applied to the fashion industry. .

  5. 5. Media: Digital Photography, Adobe Photoshop, InDesign Cafe 415 S an Francisco Magazine A quarter long project for Publication Design, I took advantage of the opportunity to create a magazine dedicated to San Francisco’s various local cafes and bakeries. I was also able to incorporate my love for photography and layout design, and I feel that the cover of this issue reflects this passion.

  6. 6. Media: Adobe Illustrator BunnyologyInteractive Care Kit My love for rabbits was my inspiration to create a non-profit, promotional care package. With the help from SaveABunny, a rescue organization in the Bay Area, I was able to compile “Rabbits 101”, a booklet meant for potential rabbit parents. The kit also includes an identification card to fill in your rabbit’s information, a con- tact list that is readily available for reference, and a checklist.
