Welcome friends and enemies,
Its Toriaezu Tuesday, so its time for me to talk about something to tide you over until WIP Wednesday.
Last week, I spent time explaining to you all how I use Pinterest to collect fashion imagery to inform my character design process. This week, I`ve decided to outline my goals as an artist and possibly this blog. The scope will be much more macro in perspective than previous post. Anyway, lets get started...
The goal of this blog is to curate social and creative content. Each post is intended to share a little bit of my unique perspective regarding life in Japan, art and design.
For those that aren`t aware, my career goal has been to become the Art Director of my own studio. A studio in which we would create and publish content in a boutique fashion that catered to a niche audience.
First of All, Whats an Art Director?
The Art Director is solely responsible for supervising and unifying the development of ideas into accurate visual imagery that stimulates moods, contrasts
features, and psychologically appeals to a target audience. Art Directors work in all sorts of industries ranging from Fashion, Games, Movies, Film, Television, Advertising, Marketing, etc.
Of course, It isnt immediately clear to me how I would accomplish this but doing something is better than nothing-hence the start of this blog.
How does blogging connect to the Art Director goal?
Gotta start somewhere right? Besides, if you know anything about me, you`d at least be aware that my guiding interest are focused in two areas; Art and Japanese. I have met some really cool people within this clique, so I think its a uniqe audience that I can share a lot with. By curating the type of content Im interested in, I can bring a level of quality that reinforces my brand. This blog is simply a marketing tool. Over the past few months I’ve been noticing that the only way to get work is to make work; and so, here we are.
How do you intend to show this?
If you`ve not noticed already, I have a time table of varying content releasing on a daily basis(M-F).
*The Word of the Day is just a fun look at the language and culture of Japan.
Granted everything proceeds smoothly over the coming months, I will continue expanding my portfolio and take more comissions. I do work freelance, so you are welcome to hire me for design work! Your stuff just might show up in WIP Wednesday post!
I think I will conclude the post here for now. What do you guys think I should work on? What would you like to see or know about? Leave your comments below and share the blog on social media.
Until next time,
