The Art of Staff Spinning
Design Challenge: Creating a Visual Concept
After sharing a conversation with a partner from my Design Process, Context, and Systems class, we were tasked with creating a visual concept inspired by the conversation, without being too literal or interpretative of our partner's qualities.
Process + Execution
My partner, Maggie, shared that she participates in freestyle staff spinning, which involves the manipulation of the staff.
After gathering more information about staff spinning, creating a magazine cover felt most appropriate as the medium for my project. Furthermore, fluidity and continuity became the two concepts that I wanted to highlight in my magazine cover.
Final Design Choices
Using the motif of a lightsaber, a commonly used prop in staff spinning, I captured the free-flowing movement and precision of this art.
