Project: Korean Vocabulary Infographic- Emotions
Medium: Digital Art
Type: Class project
Created: April 2018
This was an assignment that I made for my Digital Media Projects class back in spring 2018. My assignment was to create an infographic poster (the topic was free-choice) that effectively stated its goals and statements in a visual format. I chose to do mine on Korean vocabulary (specifically emotions) since I just started self-learning the language when I started this poster. I also have a close friend who is fluent in Korean, so I was able to get help from her in regards to whether or not the vocabulary was grammatically-correct. My friend is also a psychology major, so I chose to focus on making an infographic that is centered around human emotions as a loving tribute to my psychologist friends.
I used Adobe Illustrator to create this poster, as well as a tablet and a digital pen to write down the hangul on the computer. The colors of the stars surrounding the title is a homage to the colors of the South Korean flag (red, blue, and black; the white title text represents the flag’s white background). For some of the emotions (ex. anger, embarrassment, jealously), I used the gradient mesh tool in Illustrator to help properly convey specific feelings.
