graphicairlines — Vi & Tat

1. Firstly, please introduce the theme of your La Sardina DIY. What are the thoughts behind your creation?
The theme of our La Sardina DIY is A Trip to the Moon

When we first saw La Sardina , the large flash reminded us of the moon in A Trip to the Moon / Le Voyage dans la lune (1902)

This movie was deemed as the mother of all sci-fi movies,it’s imaginative spirit matches the function of La Sardina DIY in that it allows everyone to be creative,DIY your own La Sardina

2. Where do you derive your design inspirations from?
We are inspired mostly by the thoughts of “Can we do it this way?”, trying out different techniques and challenging the status quo.

G.A.L.’s La Sardina DIY

3. If you are to give this to your favorite artist/designer, who will that be?Why(You may choose anyone dead or alive)?
I would like to give it to movie director, Georges Méliès

Besides the fact that we borrowed his creation, if he was alive and knew that somewhere in the orient, it is considered a crime to recreate a particular work, he would be very angry.

4. Can you share some creative tips with DIY newbies?
Do what you love and enjoy the creative process, you will slowly discover that you are improving.

5. Where or who would you like to capture with your La Sardina DIY be anything real or virtual)?
I would like to take a photo of Neil Armstrong on the moon. because when I was writing this article on 26/8, I read that he had passed away. May him RIP on the moon.
