This turned out to be a really refreshing project. It made me remember to think about WHY I like a piece; design, illustration, or otherwise.
My goal with this project was not only to restart my basics but to also find some inspiration for this upcoming Mother's Day. As a marketer for a small-town business, I like to make our logo stand out by using different styles for each month.
Elements of Design - Line
I really liked the simple linework in some of these illustrations, as well as the splashes of color made with watercolor.
Elements of Design - Color
For color, I seem to like two things, high contrast colors or colors in the same family. (Red on B/W or Yellows, Oranges, and Reds)
Principles of Design - Balance
When it comes to balance I noticed that I tend to like symmetry or asymmetry.
