Elemental Form:

scratching beneath the surface

Blending my love and respect for hip hop culture with design, this study looks beyond the surface, materials and graphics to explore form as an expression of its elements (DJing, MCing, B-boying, Graffitti Writing).

Designed to inspire the viewer/user to find out more about the designs and thus about hip hop culture.
