The Panda Story Book by Mak Siu Fai

Home > Winners > #52174


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
The Panda

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Story Book

INSPIRATION:
A bloody history inspired me. At the place where I born and live, Hong Kong, people and me do feel that our rights and freedom are being chipped away continuously. We may not have the power and courage to rebel the absolute conquer, but at least I can record something with my pencil in a smart way. Sometimes when or if the fact is not easy to tell, an illustrated story with a little twist is the excellent way to communicate. I got the idea when I was reading children's story books and playing with children toys, for example lego. I found it specially impactful to tell serious and mature topics in the childish way.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Looks funny but not funny at all. The uniqueness of my book is the amusing manner. I created an animalised character and toys-alike humans to lead the story, but the story itself is absolutely realistic and nothing funny. The plot is about people fought hard for freedom and democracy against a fearsome Panda. In fact, the Panda is mapping one big country in the world, and part of the story is a bloody history which is so famous that everyone knows, but the civilian is guilty to talk about. Through The Panda, I am raising concern in a more impressive and digested way.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
1. Pencil Drawing 2. Scan 3. Tuning and Colouring by Photoshop 4. Combine a book in Indesign 5. Print

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project started in 2012 in Bristol of UK, as a homework for my study in graphic design in the UWE. It took around half year from idea to execution.

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Graphics and Visual Communication Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
The book is planned to be printed with risograph technique to create some unique nostalgic style and texture.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
A4 / 210 mm x 297 mm x 8 mm / 130gsm matte paper

TAGS:
Democracy, Freedom, Rights, Massacre, Big Country

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
I studied again and again the history itself and the point of view of different people towards the case from books, old newspapers, magazines and videos.

CHALLENGE:
Actually the story maybe familiar to many people, and it may put myself into a dangerous situation if I tell the story too straightly. I want to present it in a more subtle and indirect way, and finally I came up with the idea of creating a "funny" (well actually it is not funny seriously) character to lead the story.
