New York School Movement
The New York School was born from an excitement about European modernism and fueled by economic and technological expansion; it became a dominant force in graphic design from the 1940s until the 1970s. The emphasis of New York School was on the expression of open ideas, direct presentation of information. This project has researched and analyzed of Paul Rand, Bradbury Thompson and Saul Bass and their works of design in that historical period.

International Typographic Style Catalog
Cleanliness. Readability. Objectivity, these keywords describe the driving force behind the International Typographic Style (Swiss Style). In the 19th century, the birth of grid-based design marked the separation of design from art. Many of Josef Müller-Brockmann's contributions include the use of sans serif typography, grids and asymmetrical layouts. At the same time, the design emphasis leading by Armin Hoffman is placed on the combination of typography and photography as a means of visual communication. This project aims to design a catalog to introduce their design work and history.
Druid Hills Run
With its beautiful linear park and parkways designed at the turn of the 20th century by Frederick Law Olmsted, the Druid Hills Historic District richly deserves its designation on the National Register of Historic Places. Today, it resides remarkably near the center of Atlanta’s sprawling metropolitan area. This project aims to design an event that hopes to encourage informal interaction among walkers and joggers to add more life to the Druid Hills neighbourhood.
