Beach Date on the Moon

 

I have recently been researching cool website and branding designs for work and i came across this site. I felt giddy as a navigated throughout the site because it was like this surreal experience of me meeting my website-self. What I mean by this is, if there was ever a website created to depict me, this would be it. From it being an Italian wine site to its bright colours and the vintage B&W photos of lovers and families enjoying each other’s company, no other site could be so perfect.

Right after feeling this wonderful joy, I felt determined. Determined to create a unique, colourful site which embodies my personality and to also have that reflect in my other creative work. Though I am not great with Photoshop (yet), I wanted to get a head start with this goal and found a few B&W photos to serve as my inspiration. Below, I showcase two as well as the works I created centering around these photos.

The first piece I’ve called ‘Beach Date on the Moon’.

While the first piece allowed me to¬†focus on testing out different colours on the same concept, the second piece led me to try out different concepts. Two works include a photo of mosaic tiles in Seville that I took, used as a mat on the beach and the final work is what I call ‘Lay’Z Graffiti. The women look postcard perfect in this photo I took of graffiti on a wall in Istanbul.
