Graphic design and architecture

Alvin Oei Instagram - Typography - What is Art

“I believe that even though they are different disciplines, Graphic Design and Architecture aim to achieve the same thing. Beyond just creating “buildings” both use space and form to create composition, but in the end…everything is art. This piece is one in a million answers to the question being posed.”

What I do: I have been lead designer (hospitality projects and graphic design) at Randall Baylon Architects, Inc. in Los Angeles, CA for the last 6 years. Recently, I just quit to attend Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, CA as a full time student of Environmental Design to work towards becoming a Disney Imagineer.

Where I am from: I reside in Upland, CA. Born in LA

What I was doing when making this drawing: I was thinking of ways to mesh illustration, typography, and architecture. I started a rough outline of this on the train but finished it when I got home and well into work the next morning.

Whom I was with: Besides the people on the train, I was mostly by myself when making this.
