Visual communication design can offer a new perspective on everyday life to people while stimulating curiosity and emotional sensation through novel visual attraction. As a visual communication designer, I define what I do as a combination of visual development with attention to problems our society faces today, all reinforced by a fresh and innovative perspective on the subject matter. In the age of informational overload, my design aims to offer time to effectively convey meaningful messages to people in a concise fashion. In this process,  a special process begins. A physical feeling or perception resulting from something that happens to or comes into contact with the body, which we call this as “Sensation”. When my design interacts with people, I hope they can feel the special sensation from my design. I call this process as Sun-sation which came from the part of my first name. For the last, the sensation’s second definition happens. A widespread reaction of interest and excitement.  My design, Sun-sation delivers the message for interacting with visual ideas. I want my design to attract curiosity and cause an emotional sensation.
