Senior: Kureha Pambid


Hello, my name is Kureha Pambid. I am living in Waianae Oahu, but originally from Ibaraki, Japan. I will be graduating with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Creative Media with a concentration in General Creative Media. My interest in media began with drawing and fine arts. My high school teacher invited me to their media course where I completed their course and learned the skills for adobe tools, final cut pro, and basic camera use. If I were to be an artistʻs tool, I would be chalk because I like to challenge myself to do all kinds of work on many different surfaces and mediums.



Title: Ikigai (A reason for being)

Question: Does design hold meaning when used for branding purposes?

Background: As technology developed, more avenues for people to share the design grew compared to the traditional ways of sharing. Now design is everywhere. So what makes designs stand out from the rest? This research paper focuses on meaningful designs that were able to stand the test of time. Looking through the history of graphic design, design evolved as a traditional media to an online media form which opened up a community of designers who were once separated. Particularly focusing on iconic American and Japanese graphic designers and their styles and their perspective on creating meaningful design. As a deliverable, the project was set up as design challenges on a social media platform, Instagram, where the challenge was to create something meaningful with limited materials and random choices and theme idea selected by the audience. By collecting data of engagement, it will identify what kind of graphic design makes audience engagement and recall.
