When I fell in love with UX, I looked back at myself and realized illustration and studio art weren’t the same as having a well-honed graphic design background. How could I start developing those sixth senses of color/composition/balance? I did what I usually do — a bit of research and Youtube, and then hurling myself headfirst into simply doing.
My then-obsession was Korean pop sensation BTS (방탄소년단, or Bangtan Sonyeondan). I was hooked on their music, their vision, and their devotion to their art. I used their creations to develop mine… and I think they would be proud that I did that ;)
What followed was me condensing of the essence of each of their major singles (up to that time) into a single movie poster-style graphic.
