The Study of Signs

I went on an assignment to study the signs displayed in the stores. This offered some firsthand knowledge of various signage and graphic styles. Exploring the methods retailers are using for mounting and displaying signs in a wide range of real-life situations helps you understand the industry better and track trend development. I went to five different stores and chose one sign to write about. I found that the colors and the shape are very important. They differentiate the stores and some are even identifiable by the sizes and shapes of there signs. What I mean by this is, see the Bath and […]

Stockton CA, Birth home of the Fantastic 4!

I live in the city of Stockton. It was the runner-up for the state capital. It is a very large city that has the advantage of being the home to the largest inland seaport in California. The Port of Stockton is the easternmost inland seaport in California. It is also the 13th largest city and the 64th largest city in the United States.

Fashion & Politics

It is visually obvious that fashion is inspired by politics. For example, when you stand up or support a cause, getting a shirt or some sort of memorabilia to represent it, is a must.

We see it all the time with all the recent protest going on, everyone that displays their believes on their body through clothing get taken as a serious believer. It takes a lot of courage to visually […]
