Miscellaneous Project Overview
Welcome to my miscellaneous work page! These are just some of my pieces of work that I am proud of, be it for their concepts or how the creative process was for me - even if the end product wasn't what I had intended, I still find the experience I gained far out values anything else as I am still learning. Hope you enjoy!
My Own Wikipedia Page
I always wanted a wikipedia page, but since I am not famous I never had one, so I created my own - think of it as an alternative 'About Me' section. This was my favorite passion project if anything. Making one of the smaller things on my bucket list come true, just all by myself? 10/10 would do it again
Banksy x Google Mashup
So this one may be a weird concept, but I think it works. I’m a huge tech person, I also appreciate cool art, and in doing so it gave me an idea. It’s no secret that the Pixel 3 XL has had it’s issues.
From the notch complaints, to the speakers being horrific, to memory management, it’s had a array of problems at launch. Many of these issues were fixed in recent patches, yet at the time Google was being crucified at the time for having such a horrid product, selling at a premium price point, consumer’s deserved better for the price they were paying. So with all of that being said, I decided to create a mashup of ideas.
Banksy’s ‘Girl with the Balloon’ transformed when the piece was instantly shredded once it got bought at a auction. The shredded piece became known as ‘Love is in the Bin’. Following this incident, advertisers began to use this stunt as a way to market their products making it iconic in the Ad industry.
This led me to use Banksy’s piece as an example of why the Google Pixel 3XL shouldn’t just be average or bad for the price people are paying for at the time. Using the same concept and turning Google’s own official slogan on their head, ‘Do the Right Thing’, I wanted to make a statement, that if consumers want something to be good, companies should be willing to make a good product instead of charging a surplus.
