This is my Graphic Design blog; a place where I can post all of my art, designs and exploration.
My name is Derek John Brouwer and I am currently a Graphic Design student at Ferris State University. Some of what I post here will be projects from school and others will be my own personal projects. Everything that I post, however, is my own work unless I state otherwise.
This is my self portrait book that I made while exploring collage and the process of book binding by hand. The theme of my book was my childhood in contrast with war (specifically the Vietnam war) and was mostly inspired by my grandpa who is a Vietnam veteran.
These are three origami maple leaves that I made while exploring the use of collaging and found type and how it can be used to create interest and multiple planes. This was also the final project for one of my graphic design classes.
