Thank you Ellen and Jennifer for this wonderful class! 

Here's the first layout design work I've ever tried to finish. It took me a while but I really enjoyed the process. I finished the work by Pages as Photoshop is a little too complicated for me to handle, at this stage. 

My work is based on the photos from my Instagram(@klivehrk). I took them two years ago in NYC. The text is a random cut from Brain Pickings and it's actually irrelevant to my theme haha. I've tried to involve several principles in my design, such as scale, grids, symmetry and asymmetry. The way I incorporated the principles into my work may be yet simple.

If you have any suggestion, please leave a comment!
