Flyer for “Seminar on Anime Mythology: ‘Giant Robot and Super Heros’ with Crispin Freedman” hosted by JAPAN FILM SOCIETY. Crispin Freedman is a highly experienced Japanese-English voice actor with regular fans and I look forward to listening what he has to say. 15% of all profits support ongoing Tohoku Earthquake/Tsunami Relief Effort via Japan Red Cross and Second Harvest Japan. RSVP via Facebook or E-mail
Overall, I designed to achieve an intriguing thumbnail on Facebook feed to draw the traffic. Since it targets a very specific population, the glance on its thumbnail needs to work as an instant selector of attendees. The composition came up quick like there was no other but when I look back know, it had an influence from Transformer movie poser. The color scheme attempted to relate to childhood nostalgia.  
The design process happened in an extrem urgency: the graphic request I noticed at 3AM was saying, “Need it Today.” After all the hassle, its release got delayed for a couple of days but total work time was still less than 2 days.

I designed a pro-bono flyer for “Earthawake,” a theatrical performance inspired by Tohoku Earthquake and Tsunami. All the proceeds goes to NPOs working hard on site. Even though I had another design, the image provided in the last minutes as key art drove the entire process to another direction along which colors, type, and comp were integrated. Both I and the client burnt the midnight oil to make it to its challenging deadline.
