Hear Make Heard
This 10-page concertina illustrates my personal experience of living in a foreign country and my journey to find my own cultural identity through overcoming a lot of difficulties during this time. To show my person changes and developments in London (where I lived for four years while studying), I have visualised 5 keywords which help to define my time abroad "Aspirations", "Setbacks","Loneliness","Homesickness" and "Effort". I have displayed these through various typefaces both in English and Japanese, illustrations and materials. The image on the front and back covers represent the change in my appearance from before and after moving to the U.K. The most obvious distinction is that I have changed my hair colour, bleaching it as I was influenced by the Western obsession.
