Abstract/Artist Statement

Alec is a Senior Graphic Design Major at University of the Pacific. Design is subjective. Finding the right point to communicate what a client wants versus what they think they want is a difficult point of balance. I try to concentrate the essence of what is desired into a complete vision— working like an architect, starting with a framework, and filling in the spaces between, to create the optimal balance between creativity and practicality. This three-part piece is of a natural history museum’s exhibit advertisement banners that are placed on street light posts. Each banner has an animal representing the theme of the exhibit, and each animal is made up of smaller animals, implying the depth of the exhibit in the amount of its content, into a tight focused visual representation. The simple design outside of the main imagery allows the visuals to do the talking, and be embellished by the text, to communicate what the museum’s visitors are to expect.
