Project Description

Illustrate your interpretation of the word "quiet" or "loud"

ASSIGNMENT

Illustrate your interpretations of the word "Quiet" or "Loud" for this assignment. You will use digital illustration techniques and shortcuts in Adobe Illustrator to improve your ability to communicate through design by illustrating something that does not have a recognizeable visual. You'll be able to flex your concept and design chops all the same– so get creative and have fun!

DELIVERABLE

Upload your illustration of the word quiet or loud. A completed assignment includes:

  • A color illustration
  • Either the word "quiet" or "loud"
