WEEK 7 – REFLECTION

Being assigned a new project this week was a nice change. I’m excited to get started on this as it allows some amount of creative freedom. I’ll start off by doing some research into infographics and making a pinboard.

Reproducing the master apprentice started off slightly challenging, but as soon as I got to grips with scaling, gradients and drop shadows it all became quite clear. Having to copy something exactly can be quite tedious as you have to get things exactly right. Although I made it on figma I think I prefer to use illustrator,  but maybe that’s just because I’m more used to it.

In my upcoming posts I will show the development process for my infographic.
