Word Contrast Visualization

Materials and Programs Used: Markers and Adobe Illustrator

This project’s goal is to visualize to contrasting words. Choosing "Apathetic" and "Enthusiastic" and exploring the context and meaning of the words, and applying the lateral thinking method, two illustrations of a cat and a lion were composed to represent the two words. The symbolic meanings within the bodies of the two animals hints at the word they represent individually.

The cat represents "Apathetic" as it's personality is known for being passive. In the body, one can see tear drops, crescent moons and snow. 
The lion represents "Enthusiastic" as it is known to be outgoing and being a leader. Lions are usually dominant as they are alpha males, which gives them an image of being courageous and strong. In the body, one can see flames and suns as they represent hope and encouragement.


Design Process


By applying the lateral thinking method, a list of different words that are related to the words "Apathetic" and "Enthusiastic" was made. Then, by visualizing these words, the handpicking of several words that seemed feasible was done and roughs were drawn out after sketching some ideas.
