{Book Design}  Goodbye, Icarus

A year of coastal life in Rhode Island has provided Lingyi with endless inspiration in terms of design language. 

Lingyi ventured into blending dynamic visuals from TouchDesigner with illustration. The narrative is based on seaside scenery and mythology metaphorical elements, making image programming to capture the essence of waves a focal point and central experiment of the work. 

Furthermore, after crafting a dynamic design visual language, the book uses Risograph printing and Hot foil transfer to achieve a granularity as precise as digital programming, integrating book design with content to form a cohesive whole. 

This exploration seeks to probe the boundaries where design, motion visuals, and illustrative language converge.
