The Swiss Style

Basically, my work is mostly influenced by "Interna tional Style", known as "The Swiss Style". The Swiss Style was a major force in graphic design and it still holds much power today, especially in the area of corporate identity. My most influential designer in this style is Josef Muller-Brockmann, a Swiss designer. Most of his work is the typical Swiss approach featuring minimalist design totally free of ornamentation, a strong grid structure, and use of sans serif type.

Design Process

The very basic process of design, like many processes, is to solve a problem and then create a solution. Jason Fried recently tweeted, “Your first design may be the best, but you won’t know until you can’t find a better one.” Included me, Designers work hard to develop a successful design and it doesn’t always come easy. I always need the details of the final piece before starting any design work. Most of them start with pencil sketch, making a mocks up in order to develop my initial idea. Even though I was stepping this process, I experience with facing some problems, changes that I need to do in processing.

Storytelling

Hayao Miyazaki is one of the most influential filmmakers to his fellow filmmakers around the world. My storytelling method of non-linear Narrative is inspired by warm humanism, respect for nature and subtle storytelling of Miyazaki's film. My movie presents the fragments of a picture introduced in asymme trical order with a blue calligraphical line in order to create a wintery seasonal theme.
