Work title: Quote Visualization Project
Country: United States




Ryo Kitabatake is an aspiring graphic designer, specializing in motion design. He has been deeply influenced by northern European contemporary designs and Japanese traditional arts. His conviction in his design work has never changed. He believes that design must be a medium, in which to convey an intended message; yet, it should also have a controlled obscurity, in order to intrigue and engage the audience.

This is a creative attempt to visualize a quote "Man knows so much, and does so little." -Buckminster Fuller.

Communication Objective
The objective of this piece is to convey the denotative and connotative meaning of the quote with a visual. The quote implies that time, which is given to mankind, is limited; what they can do is not as much as what they think. In order to express the idea, the artist used blueprint as a visual, to imply the knowledge of mankind, and paper and ink as a visual, to connote what mankind can do.

Tools used
Illustrator and Photoshop to make the graphic elements, and After Effects to composite. Sequential files exported from After Effects, previewed and rendered with Premiere Pro and Media Encoder.

Adobe Tools
Adobe Media Encoder, Adobe Premiere Pro CS6, After Effects CS6, Illustrator CS6, Photoshop CS6 Extended

I would like to thank you to my professor for giving me a lot of thoughtful advice!
