Hello! My name is Chloe Brun and I am a Graphic Designer graduating from Otis College of Art and Design in May 2020 with a Bachelors of Fine Arts in Communication Arts. I have developed my professional background through numerous design opportunities such as an intern, a selected participant in a design charrette, and as a freelance designer for the past two years having done work for clients in Los Angeles and Paris. I am highly experienced in the Adobe creative suite (InDesign, Premiere Pro, Photoshop, Illustrator). I am a designer, a storyteller, and a collaborator who loves to work with people. Family, travel, photographs, drawings, and more, my art aims to let people have a better understanding of my eccentric personality, multiculturalism, and my constant location change through simple yet meaningful designs.
"Unity Through Food" is a 267 page book discussing family, multiculturalism, and cooking.and was created during the fall of 2018. Discover what it means to be multicultural by navigating your way through food and stories from a selection of six different countries.
Unity Though Food explores each of these countries and their means of multiculturalism through essays, interviews, articles, and finishing with 12 selected recipes that I grew up with as a child.
GoodBye To Time is a project that serves as an extension and response towards my feelings and coping towards the COVID-19 outbreak through visual and written art, combining abstract imagery and poetry to full express these thoughts that one has trying to grasp the reality of being locked down in a city that one was supposed to leave, and the thoughts that occur while trying to cope with these memories and nostalgia of longing for a normal life. Instagram's grid functionality allows us to express the notion of time in a concise and poetic narrative.
Anemoia is my manifesto where I discuss my design beliefs. Using those beliefs, I then created visual elements for it with mixed media such as analog and digital collage, old photographs, and other mixed media. This is my print version of Anemoia on a 6 x 8 publication.
“And Then I’ll Go” is about community and sharing. Rather than focusing too much on the me part of the project, I shifted it into an abstracted version of sharing my personal memories in a way that other French/Iranians could relate to. I also wanted to show that Los Angeles is a different experience for everyone, that it is a city that refuses to mold itself into something familiar. It resists. I turned a lot to Man Ray’s experiences in Los Angeles as an artist and his writings to when he was living and creating his art, to which they offered a lot of insight.
60x72 infographics poster, A group project for Identity and Systems, we spoke on sexual assault in Hollywood today and in the past. We began with several key women from the Golden age of Hollywood and moved on to today's Me Too movement. As the time passes, more women are shown, representing just how impactful it can be to use your voice.
It’s difficult to gather all of your thoughts concisely into one book, let alone when there are topics that could no way relate to each other. Man Ray’s hidden art pieces and the growth of art propaganda of the Islamic Revolution in Iran could not be polar opposites, yet these topics marry each other, as for the rest of these eight chapters. Tolstoy, one of my favorite prestiged writers, took time to compile essays regarding art and the criticisms that are associated with traditional art in the Western World, which stunned me. It’s without a doubt that my interest would then turn to me looking at the illustrators of the past such as Norman Rockwell, and how he shaped American culture. Like many great artists who shaped American life, Man Ray was a man who left behind a home he once knew to come to contribute to the culture of Los Angeles, similar to the many Iranians who left their homeland in hopes of finding a new life.
I have made a website and poster (with QR code that leads to the magazine) about three films (Call Me By Your Name, The Royal Tenenbaums, I Killed My Mother) that I find aesthetically pleasing that is updated monthly. My target audience is aimed towards young adults/teenagers. I communicate through a website a brief synopsis of each film and mentions of articles, all which relate to the struggles of family issues and or issues within themselves through a pleasing design layout. The posters communicate through objects and hidden typo-graphic elements that are extracted from each film, allowing the viewer to figure out which film it is. A QR code is placed on each poster, which then can allow the viewer to scan the code and be led to the web page attributed to each poster.
