I made the logo a ship because it’s called shipping and we pair couples in ships or OTPs, one true pairing. There’s a heart on the sail to represent love for the pairing. The one with the circle puzzle I really love because it could be a pin or badge for all shippers.



I put ‘One True Pairing’ for the inside of the heart and ‘OTP’ for the outline of the line. For the sail, I put two different blues and formats of the word ‘Couples’. The boat is made up of the word ‘Fandoms’ with four different browns. For the background, I made it look like the ship was in an ocean and I also made a horizon so you can see the sky, too.


These are a couple of pictures of my shippings. I have many more, but I couldn’t fit them all in. So I put some of my shippings in the header.

Ideas For A Topic

Most of my topics involve interviewing someone for companies I would like to work for. One I would love to do an interview with one of the designers of Final Fantasy. I would ask them about details about the characters and landscapes. I would also ask how does it feel to work with Square Enix. Another person I would interview would be designers at Pixar. See how they make the details on the characters. I would of wanted to do an interview with Monty Oum, who created Dead Fantasy and RWBY, but I could interview another designer from Roost Teeth. I could also ask them questions about how Monty worked, too.

Why I’m Doing What I’m Doing

Who are you?

My name is Savannah Rios.


What brings you to Ex’pression College?

I came to Ex’pression because I wanted to study Game Arts and Design. Kingdom Hearts was what started me to become a game artist. Some of the characters in Kingdom Hearts are also in another game called Final Fantasy and I fell in love with their graphics. The characters looked amazing and the landscapes were so beautiful. It showed me what graphic designing could do.


What drives your creatively? What do you create?

I watch a lot of anime and animated movies. I’m really into fantasy, action, and romance. I made these stories that have all of that in them and each story makes me think of other stories I can do. All of them are also really tragic, which I can’t help but have them that way. I’m trying to have them less tragic, but that can only work after I have the really tragic part in it.


What would you like to be doing ten years from now?

In 10 years, I see myself working with Pixar and maybe be able to work with Square Enix, who made Final Fantasy and Kingdom Hearts.


What are your biggest influences?

My biggest influences would have to be a lot of anime and animated movies, like Disney and Pixar movies. Square Enix is another influenced I had and also Monty Oum. Monty Oum created RWBY, 2 to 3 years ago, which is really popular and amazing to watch. He was really inspiring and I wanted to go and meet him, but he passed away early this year. But his still is an influence to me and many other people.
