anatomy of a chinese name

Hey everyone…

This is my homework assignment. I made two versions because I wasn’t happy with the poster version. Click to enlarge, and sorry about the really light sans serif fonts. I tried. ><”

This is probably the first time I’ve written my chinese name in such huge letters.

Credit: I pull data from a lot of different sites and tried to make it as accurate as possible, but any mistakes are my own. I’ll try and link the sites I used later, but awesome sites such as Chinese Etymology and MDBG Chinese-English Dictionary were a big help.

Version 1: Test Poster; issues with layout and spelling, text too light

Version 2: “Scroll”; still awkward, but this is as close I can get it to what I want.

who you are// what you are

A lot of people don’t understand how chinese names work-

One thing at a time~

Been playing Zero Escape: Virtue’s Last Reward…I’m really glad I asked to borrow the first game (999: 9 hours, 9 Persons, 9 Doors), and despite the slow pace I’m working through it, I’m enjoying every second.

I had the honour of being invited to a certain surprise party thrown for the forward-traveling Pheon.

Many people pulled together for a great celebration for memories and well wishes. The toast was provided by Rosetech’s “Tokyo Big Sight Souvenir” ita-sake.

Seems like a lot of people are moving around! And changing! Did I mention graduating? XD Lots to be thankful for, and to reflect on for the future.

This isn’t new, but I’ll be uploading some more layouts I’ve had a hand in. I don’t always write the story, or do the entire layout myself, which is why I haven’t really uploaded any before.

Final results of the Federation of Students elections have been released already, but here is the information in pie chart format.

Data for charts pulled from the Feds website.

Presidential voting turnout: 2692 of 27074 eligible students voted (9.94%).

I’m fine with the way they are now because they work with the simplicity needed for the cover of the paper, but they’re not too creative, or don’t break any new design boundaries. I got too caught up in making sure the percentages matched up.

Maybe a more muted palette?
