PPD visual essay

Within 300 words we had to reflect on our co-design project based on Protein Structures. I collaborated with science experts who understand protein structures for this project. This is just a short summary of everything in this project.


Fairtrade - You buy this, You build this

You Buy, You Build from ling ko on Vimeo.

Working with Cris Lu we made these series of moving image for YCN's Fairtrade award. We had to "Create a film which will turn support of Fairtrade into passion for Fairtrade."

We are illustrating the variety of available fairtrade products in supermarkets as well as how the more the product is bought, the more income the producer will earn and with this income they can invest in building projects for their community.

8 solid hours of working just to create this short piece! I rarely make moving image, but this was quite fun too make :)



He's my little monster :)


Some things = something

We did a one day collaboration project with graphic students from Kingston University. The brief asked us to bring in one object, and combine it with our group's other objects and produce something. When we got together we had the following objects: VHS tape, aeroplane emergency evacuation card, bed knob, handcuffs. We took the idea of links, and transitions as our "theme". So we decided to transfer this old Hong Kong drama called "Take care your Highness" from the VHS tape onto the computer. We then took snapshots of the cross-fades of scenes within the drama. Our final piece were the screen-shots, whilst playing the drama on a small tv screen.



The Reflection

I developed the poster from the typo workshop. Added some colour to illustrate the sense of "reflection" I used a very light blue and white text for the title in attempt to give a very passive feeling.


Lines of Enquiery

Doodle doodle....... trying to think of a name for my dad's ice cream distribution... but I just can't think... after we got a name, I've been asked to do the corporate design etc!! A little extra work for no money :P

Destination Guaranteed

For this project I had to design a book cover based on our partner's story. The story I got was about Anh who visited a small arcade and saw 1 credit left in an unattended Street Fighter machine. Since no one was there for 20 minutes, he decided to use that credit, however a guy turned up, irritated by the fact that his credit was taken, he said nothing but beat up Anh on Street Fighter.

What I found interesting about this story was that there was no physical violence, it was all in the realm of video game, all the feelings and emotions aren't seen as such, and there was no conversation. So I decided to laser cut an arcade joystick into acrylic to make a book sleeve. The story (book) takes part within the game, hence the book sits inside the joystick sleeve. I also put in a grey arcade button, I'm really interested in human interaction.
