Daily UI Design Challenge #24: Boarding Pass.

Imagine: Jamie Smith and Winnie Lam are about to travel for business from Los Angeles, California to Maui, Hawaii. They booked their flights with Swift Flights, which is famous for its swift services. They arrived at the airport, printed out their Swift boarding passes from the kiosk. There’s about 30 minutes after they got through the checkpoint, so they went to a cafe and worked a bit.

Jamie took the picture as they put their boarding passes on the table.

Tic Tac Toe

A fun little design side project on this simple game to get me started in animation. My husband Yanbin and I will collaborate to make it real.

A Handdrawn Card Just for You

I’ve volunteered a few times to draw cards for our colleagues’ special events, like baby showers, going-away parties and pre-wedding parties. I really enjoyed this little activity.

Can You Add Meanings to Socks? — A Practice on Denotative and Connotative Images

socks

I did some interesting practice on making denotative images and connotative images. A denotative image is a direct representation of an object from real life, whether it be cartoonized or realistic, made by pen or something else. A connotative image added an extra layer of “meaning” to the denotative image.

To start, I needed to choose an object. I chose a sock. My mission was to quickly do 10 denotative images (using different ways) and 3 connotative images on paper. A lot, huh? I thought so, too. After all, how can socks be sketched differently into that many images? But I decided to give it a try.
