Assignment 4: Colour Coalition

Assignment 1: Me, Myself and I
Stage 4 - Final Prototype This was the final prototype I presented in class. I chose the portrait over a landscape because this made the sneakers in a central position.

The class commented that the ‘E’ was the most outstanding, and that there should be a change in colours of the background....
