Photography

Used to be trees

I took this picture at Binh Chanh District in a sunny day of Spring when I was riding passing it with a Canon G10 hanging on my neck.


I found the scene was interesting with yellow color and high range of value. More over, lots of lines and rectangular shapes create a very engaging feeling. The depth of the picture is also like pulling us inside the frame. And look at the lighting. Start from the sunlight near us, then the shadow, then further is sunlight again. Interesting setting of light.

MoonS

Walking down the street to look for an old person to take picture of (because my theme for Photography assignment was ab old people), and I caught these wonderful yellow noodle lying there waiting for me to take picture of. They are GREAT objects to take picture of ( you should try sometime). Especially when they are on the disks. Great contrast and LOTS of visual elements. Small round noodle pieces stay on bigger round disk :)


Pretty cool concept, huh? ^_^

Factory

A Condom factory

A group project consist of 3 people. We were assigned to do the interior design of a company. We chose to do a condom factory, as it would be interesting to look at :) So there was a guy who models and layout the scene, a girl who did the lighting, and my job was to add material and fine-tune everything so that it will look ok when we render. The final result is not that bad ^_^.


But I enjoy making those "tube" look real :D

Living room

HoHa's Living room

This is a living room. MY FIRST EVER 3D SCENE THAT I'VE EVER MADE. This is an individual assignment by the way. So I started it from scratch, modelled and did everything by myself. I had to spend a lot of time on trying to make the material look real. But I have learn A LOT from this project. It didn't take me too long to finish though. The longest time I have spent was to model the basketball I guess ^_^


But you know I like 3D, don't you? :)

Light up

Photography class - Black and White pictures - Creating a mood


That was the theme for this assignment. Right after I recieved the theme, at the everning, I walked downtown to find a building which can give me "mood" for my assignment. And BOOM, here it is - "Sai Gon Paragon" (Dist 7 HCM city VietNam) buiding was bathing in its light. Look at the contrast and value it created. Perspective view and black background also give stronger emotion for the picture.

Past

Photography class - Black and White pictures - Creating a mood


So after I was tired of walking and couldn't get any more cool picture, I came back home to rest. When I was walking up the stairs, I stopped. Oh my, a picture in front of me. But what interested me was not the picture ^___^. I was impressed by the frame. It is in my house, and I never notice. How could I think that a picture frame can convey that much of emotion? An old look, some dust, the light above it, all together create a very moody look. Shot it in macro even further push that feeling higher, as it created depth. Thump up.

Play your name

A small game I created for the final project of Content Design Project class. I am very please with the Strong concept it holds and the simplicity of it.


The intention of creating this game is to combine typography, animation and music together. Who said working with letters is boring??? So, to play this game, you first have to pick the letters that you want ( can be your name) and place them to the artboard. With each letter contains a different music note, with the combination of the letters, you can play a music piece by just roll the mouse over your letters. So let your "artistic person" inside you comes out ^_^ It doesn't stop there, though. If you feel borring with just looking at those borring Arial type face letter, you can hold Ctrl and press on any letter, and they will create a typo themself. Then your job is just to arrange them the way you like it, and Ta daa, you just created a Typo version of your name :) (For example) ^^


Play it, and you will have fun :D

Planet Green Logo

We, as a team of 4 people, did a project where we created a logo for Planet Green TV station, and build an Identity kit according to the logo. It was pretty fun to come up with many crazy ideas, and great works have been produced. You can download the project folder to have a look at the Identity kit as well as the process we went through.

My first E-Portfolio

Design for Interative Media 2. In this class, I was required to create a flash portfolio. This was when I just begin to study how to navigate in Adobe Flash :) Look at this work (and my web-site), one can guess that I LOVE round things and circles, as I think that they are symbols for perfection. This has a very cool and funky intro (I think ^^) that you may want to look at. It is funny when I grow up (In design field), look at my old works, and think that: "How could I be that silly ? ^^".


Anyway, this is a cool design

And my first E-tutorial

Design for Interative Media 2. Like the previous work, this is the next assignment that I had to do. The purpose is to create a tutorial teaching people about a topic. In my tutorial, I teach people how to tear a phone book (think one) in half :) The funniest thing I did in this project is to add sound effect just by mouth movement (And please note that I never take Sound Editing class before ^^). It was ok with the result :)

Css Zen garden

I learnt CSS and HTML from this Design for Interactive Media 3 class. So my first assignment was to create a CSS web page by using the template HTML from CSS Zengarden. As I like to play games, I decided to make my webpage has the theme of 16bits game. They brings back so sweet memories to me :) Duck hunt, Terris, Contra, Snake... :) Oh my child hood :)

Animate typo

Palatino typeface animation

The idea was to create a promotion animation for a typeface (here is Palatino) so that people will like and buy it :)) Once again, I used my favorite Black and Red ^^. I didn't spend much time for this piece, but it looks very cool. You can press the link below to watch it :) Hope you will enjoy.

The roof life

On top of the house is another house. There always will be another life that we never know about. With this picture, we can see another world beside what we usually see everyday. This pictures was taken from a poor area of District 8 HCM city Vietnam.

To the Future

You must be wondering: "What is that???". Ok, let me make it clear: It was from a keyboard. :) If you look inside a keyboard (Which I do not advice you to do), you will find a plastic piece that look like that. Now what's left is just to try to find a good shot from it. Pretty cool huh? ^^

She is a ticket seller. She is old. She has to take care for her family which is 600Km away. She was so scared when I asked her for me to take picture of her. She scared that she will not have money to pay for me, that I will force her to pay for taking picture.After several minutes of convincing, finally she let me took ONE picture of her. And wooo... Look at the lines on her face.

Look at this picture, you can see a monk who is focusing on praying. With him, the world turn its back to him, it doesn't matter. He just need to walk forward, he just need enlightment. Full of spiritual feeling, isn't it?


WRONG :)


Look at the bow on his hands. There is money inside :) This indicate he doesn't care anything about enlightment or whatever. He is just an Advance Begger :D

WIL project Montage

TEAM

I used to join WIL Project, in which I cooperated with around 20 members from both Vietnam and Australia to look at the design of Da Nang general hospital, suggest the changes, and propose the plan for changing. So, as we came together from different backgrounds and education, we still be one team. Therefore, I created this montage to emphasize : "A team is like a body, without any part, it would not function correctly."
