靜夜思 Quiet Night Thoughts

  • 靜夜思
    床前明月光,
    疑是地上霜.
    舉頭望明月,
    低頭思故鄉.
    [李白]


    For this series of posters and visual identity, I chose to tap into my cultural roots and explore my heritage along with my feelings of homesickness. I'm studying what I love at RISD, but I'm also miles away from my family and my friends. My mother visited me once, and I became overwhelmed with emotion when she left. I chose 靜夜思 (Quiet Night Thoughts) for its nostalgia of childhood as I've learned and had to memorize it in middle school. It is a classical poem every child would learn, and the subject matter reflects how I feel. Translations are at the bottom of each poster.
