A piece of graphic design can be such an influence on people and it can be literally anywhere to perform its influencing magic. The artwork doesn’t have to be displayed and framed in all those high-end galleries, it doesn’t have to be published with the world’s most renowned magazines, it can just be a poster stuck onto the wall alongside the street and that is already so influential. To put it simply, we always interact with a piece of graphic design in our everyday life and it almost becomes a part of our lives now because we’re seeing and experiencing it repeatedly. I have fallen in love with graphic design since a young age because I felt like it is the type of art that stood out to me more than any other type. I have tested out my passion in graphic design by having worked with the communication team for a Thai sports brand called Girlsnationactive and I turned out to be even more passionate about graphic design than I already was. And to further reinforce my ambition in graphic design, I applied and was accepted for an internship of the eminent fashion magazine, Nylon Thailand.
All of these graphic designers have truly inspired me to take my further education in the graphic designing course. It is rather obvious that there is an endless flow of creativity and passion which can be sensed just by observing they work and that is how I want to feel when in my profession. I want freedom when I think I want to be passionate when I work.

This is my favourite work of Frank's. He added the movement into typography. The background makes the text stand out also, it flows with the picture. The colour that he chose catches people eyes to focus on the text.

Craig Ward is a typographer and art-director based in Brooklyn who likes playing with typography. his work is about the power of typography. He uses a variety of media and technique. Before we saw all of his outcomes, he has been experiment it many times. For example, You Blow Me Away he used 20 sheets of glass for this work and smashed it with a different angle. The typography is fragmented give the impression it has been blown away. The background makes the phrase outstanding. The white typography is contrasted to the background, and it adds impact to the work.

"I want everything we do to be beautiful. I don't give a damn whether the client understands that that's worth anything, or that the client thinks it's worth anything or whether it is worth anything. It's worth to me. It's the way I want to live my life. I want to make beautiful things, even if nobody cares."
The phrase that he said was very inspirational to do and develop my design further.
