Hail Mika

Hello, my name is Mikhaila. I'm a 23 year old art director/designerd who wants to travel the world and make a film someday. This is my design experiment/pop culture blog which is mostly things that aren't serious at all. I can't promise you quality, but I can promise no drama, just fun.

This is not your ordinary infographic resume. I worked on this for two weeks which is much longer than how I usually spend on a resume. Inspired by Malcolm Gladwell’s 10000 hour theory and the 4 Edward Tufte data visualization books that I read, I made a visualization of all the hours that I’ve spent designing since I was a freshman in college until now. One circle is two hours and each column represents a month. This is possibly one of the nerdiest resumes ever since I actually wrote a Python script to generate the graph. The graph resembles a skyline which is appropriate for my self-branding as a travel lover.

Unromantic valentines to ensure your single status for life.
I would say this is for the crazy cat ladies… but not really.
This is from one of the funniest scenes in Her which you should watch today.

I’ve been obsessed with architecture lately. Doing minimalist buildings is my way of relaxing.

Trying to get back into the habit of posting everyday. Even if it is recycled :P
This was made mostly with circles which I am obsessed with right now.
