While doing some online searching, one of my dear friend came across this page, he was very shy about bringing it here but I thought it was very interesting info by the author and would like to share it:
Time 100 – Yuna Kim
Graphic Design 1 – October-November 2010
- Project Brief
Design a book which documents the historical significance of one of the individuals provided on the following list, Time 100. It is important to focus on the accomplishments and contributions of the individual.
The person I chose from Time's Top 100 of 2010 list was Yuna Kim of South Korea, and winner of the Gold Medal for Women's Figures Skating at the Winter 2010 Olympics. After researching her story, I decided to focus on her rivalry with fellow figure skater, Mao Asada from Japan. I pulled the red and blue colors from the flags of both Japan and South Korea, and the gold from the gold medal both skaters were competing for. Throughout the book, I used circular shapes to reflect the medal as well as the country flags. The pages are printed on textured paper and covers on textured card stock. The book is bound together with three grommets.
A hero is an ordinary individual who finds the strength to persevere and endure in spite of overwhelming obstacles. – Christopher Reeve
