3 Things I Have Learned

  1. Slow down and live
  2. Lose yourself to find yourself
  3. There's more than one side

Inspired by Stefan Sagmeister's experimental typography and his publication "Things I have learned in my life so far," these pieces of unconventional typography feature three things I have learned so far from life.

The project comprises of three main images and three supplementary booklets that show insight into the process and meaning of each life lesson

things I have learned

Lesson Number One:
Slow down and live

The booklet reveals how the quote was made and shows it stretched across in accordion format, forcing the reader to slow down and step back

Lesson Number Two:

The booklet shows in-progress shots of how the quote was set up and how one can only find "to find" from a specific point of view

Lesson Number Three:

The booklet shows in-progress shots, how a partition wall aids the meaning and experience of the quote, and uses pages to mimic dividers, exemplifying how more than one side is needed to see and understand the whole story

Alice's Adventures in Wonderland

Illustration, photography, book design, and book binding for Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. This rendition of Lewis Carroll's classic story is inspired by Alice's belief that a book is useless without pictures or conversations, and the book's layout and illustrations reflect this concept, along with the fact that she is a very imaginative girl who loves to pretend to be different people and have conversations with herself.

The book features coptic binding and measures a half-letter page in size, vertically, to give it an unconventional sense of length and a unique reading experience

alice in wonderland alice in wonderland alice in wonderland alice in wonderland

To emphasize dialogue, conversations are pulled to their own pages; in the illustrations, one girl acts out all the characters' parts

alice in wonderland

Alice's inspirational quote for the book's design

alice in wonderland alice in wonderland alice in wonderland alice in wonderland alice in wonderland alice in wonderland alice in wonderland alice in wonderland alice in wonderland alice in wonderland

Some illustrations incorporate hand-lettering

Mixed-media illustrations for the project Anthrocemorphia, a playing card deck series featuring fifty-five unique fantasy drawings.

The series explores theories of origin, philosophies of evolution, and the meaning of life as condensed by the lens of one's humanity.

Sophia Adalaine, the creator of Taneko!

Hey there!

Welcome to my online portfolio. I'm happy you stopped by!

My name is Sophia, and I'm a photographer, illustrator, and multimedia designer. I believe graphic design is problem-solving with art, and I like to blend my skills and artist intuition with my design sensibility.

Basically, I'm a diligent designer, avidly appreciative of alliteration and wordplay, and exude imagination and self-initiation. I thrive independently but also love collaboration, so get in touch with me!
