Visual thinking project. Involved digital illustration, lyric analysis, vector graphics.
Challenge: Open-ended project encouraging students to create a design based on personal interests and skills.
Solution: Designed an album cover for a song written by one of my favorite artists, John Mayer. The illustration acts as an interpretation of the lyrics. A woman is depicted in fetal position, shielding herself from the surrounding circle. Representing time, the colored circles pose as a clock, and the change in color symbolizes the transition from the joyfulness of youth to the dreariness of death. She is trying to ward off the inevitability of passing time and growing older, just as John Mayer sings about in his song, "Stop This Train".
