My personal projects are mostly about recording the journey.
For example, recording my days before getting hired here.
I am always on my way home.
This is (not) a homepage.
Starting from the question “how might we visually communicate the sensory experience of travel”, I went through a long way to find my home.
More and more people now begin to find out that home, the cultural concept, means much more than we thought. To understand home in the new cultural background, new explorations are needed. Inspired by Ingo Offermanns, communication design is “a cultural technique for the knowledge-based society, and for capitalism”, combined with the requirement that I gave to myself two years ago, this project was designed to explore how communication design can help with communicating the cultural concepts and help with self-developing.
Communication design helps me to get out of my little world, into this wild space. At the same time, it also helps me to get deeper into myself.
This project explored the connections between communication design and self-developing, and that is important for me to keep being passionate in this field without losing myself. This project will go further into many more stages of my life.
Special thanks to those teachers that joined my journey in 2018:
Noel White for all the research-based support;
Stuart Geddes for always encouraging me to fly wilder and just being chill;
Michael Dunbar for dragging me back to the Earth and laughing a lot when I make jokes;
Brad Haylock for encouraging me with words and smiles, which surprised me;
Vicent Chan for the amazing monotone font and all the time listening.
Also big hugs to everyone I met in the journey.
