project?

Just do it.

Over the last ten years or so, Ive made a habit of maintaining at least one side project at any given moment. Those side projects have served a couple of purposes: 

01 - Learn new things : Trying out a new technology, a new field, or learning a new skill. 

02 - Build something : Its nice and fulfilling when you can show your product to others, or take a look at something and know youre the one that created it. 

03 - Refreshing : Its a great way to get out of your comfort zone and do something different from your day job.

Haiku art

 

 

My humble try to illustrate haiku poems. I have always been drawn

by haiku poetry being fascinated by its power to communicate

that particular moment in time, and a sense of sudden illumination

or enlightenment, despite its simplicity. The perfect illustration of

"Be here, now" -  live the moment and the moment only...

New Zealand 

National Flag. 

 

 

 

In 2015, New Zealanders were asked to consider and share their 

thoughts on the qualities that distinguished the country, and how

its culture and values could best be portrayed in a new flag design. 

In May that year, the 12-strong panel challenged New Zealanders

to suggest their own designs to replace the country's existing flag,

which was created in 1869 and officially adopted in 1902.  

So, I came up with this concept.

As a yogi myself, during the winter classes, I kept wondering

how can I bring the feeling of nature inside of the studio...

This is how NaturAll project came to life.

Kumo Taiko

 

 

Noticing they were still using a marker pen to brand their

bachis, I teamed up with the Kumo team to design their first

hanko + van + uniform as a small reward for their teachings.

It was a fun collaboration, they are very open-to-new-ideas guys.

Aroha Toki

 

 

This is my son's Toki. In Te Reo Maori, Aroha is the word for love.

The Toki (adze) was a chisel tool used by the Māori people of Aotearoa

(New Zealand) to carve their great canoes and carved detailing on their

meeting houses. A symbol of courage and strength in times of adversity, 

Toki was worn by Māori elders as a symbol of power, wisdom

and authority. You cannot simply buy one, it needs to be gifted to you

by someone else. Photo credit: Mountain Jade New Zealand.

Aur'a gold water

 

Package design - Case Study. "Since ancient times the local people from

Romania in the area of Transylvania were more active, healthier and

happier. This was a mystery as well as an assumption they might have

discovered miracle water, the springs of holy wells. Aur’a is the association

of two Latin words expressing its precious content. “Aur” comes from the

Latin “Aurum” which means Gold and “a” the letter following the

apostrophe stands for the Latin “Argentum” meaning Silver. Nevertheless

“Aur’a” symbolise the body aura as well, which according to New Age

beliefs is a human energy field, a coloured emanation said to enclose a

human body."
