Costume Design Brochure, Mock
This assignment was to come up with my own company concept - "Costume Design"- of renting high-end gowns to dress divas of operas, or Gala events.
I used my own photography of the Jean-Paul Gaultier costume exhibit at the DeYoung museum a few years ago, and my photography of SF murals and other outdoor SF art.
I created original vector art to enhance the design of the spreads.
I found amazing artist quotes to support the main idea behind the company, asking the leading question, "Does life inspire art? Or does art inspire life?"
I conducted a personal interview with my sister-in-law who is a Textile Conservator about how realistic it would be for an opera house to rent gowns like this.
The last piece I designed was the cover. The challenge was to design a cover that melds together the interior colors, and also stands alone as an art piece. It didn't sit right to make it black and white, or one other color, so after a little agony, I was incredibly satisfied to land on this cover.
