Publication: A Brief History on Coffee
Students were tasked to take a longform Wikipedia article and lay out the subject into a publication. For this project, I chose the Wikipedia article on coffee and then chose my primary typeface based on what I associate coffee with. To me, coffee is classic and timeless, thus my primary typeface choice of GT Sectra — a serif typeface with a classic yet modern flair.

Film Archive
For my final Core 1: Interaction (Coding) project, I coded and designed online archive for all the film photos I have taken throughout the years, categorizing them by season and year. Every time the viewer refreshes the landing page, the photos in the background change position and sometimes overlap, which alludes to film transparencies and multiple exposures.
