The project explores the portrayal of narrative through a visual medium, and how design can help distil a story to its essence.
I chose to narrate the plot of Anne of Green Gable through a series of looped animation.

This project portrays the life events in Anne’s life using a method that was invented closely to her actual time period, with colourful and imaginative illustrations that resonate with Anne’s lifestyle and philosophies.

The looping mechanism of phenakistoscope is used to reinforce my interpretation of Anne as a zealous and inspiring girl who has lots to give.

Regardless of how far she goes, how old she is or how many names and personalities she adapted throughout the years, she remained the lovable girl that was mistakenly (and humorously) adopted since day one.
