Inspired by the Kehinde Wiley’s Lamentation exhibition. The stained glass windows and paintings show strong visual expression, which is in line with the aesthetics of African American churches.
A more in-depth study of stained glass art from the aspects of pattern, portrait, music, gospel symbolism and typography, etc., used it as the main visual direction for the following design explorations.
A custom font is created for the text on the ribbon, which is a very effective method for visual design and motion design.
Test font size, color calibration and motion speed on the real size projection area.
