My Summer: the East Village project is introducing and expressing a place by mixing up the area’s facts and vibes. Since the East Village was the most memorable place I’ve ever stayed, it led me to work on this project with a little bit of  “homesickness.”

Based on research and my personal memories, I discovered that the East Village has a “Vintage Daytime,” and “Happening Night Life.” To spread out the theme: Energetic vibration and the diversity of the East Village, I chose a method of layering different high-saturated colors and using assorted types of papers to create a poster and a book.
