There was a beautiful polish that was done to the entire work.

This project explores a contrast: how something that is essentially a simple series of letters can manifest itself into something so complex, indefinable and multifaceted as life; how our origin and evolution from a single cell to a human being is all a result of encrypted code within DNA.
Dev Ethan Valladares has a double-Padawan braid and his initials spell out his name. He’s a graphic and motion designer, born and raised in Mumbai, and recently graduated (valedictorian!) in Visual Communication from Srishti Institute of Art, Design & Technology in Bangalore. He’s interested in (among other things) figuring out the uncharted depths of the human experience, the context that India provides to the world of design, and the relationship between graphic design (visual communication practiced by trained designers) and memes (by the masses). Ultimately, his goal is to keep learning and using design to explore and understand the world around him.
