The Eighth Intelligence

I found the project to be quite challenging (in a good way!), I think in part to my own lack of experience with typography, but also my inherent haphazardness.

In the theory of multiple intelligences, the "eighth intelligence" is naturalistic intelligence, or the ability to sense patterns and make connections to nature. My project was a kind of tribute, since I find a lot of my own inspiration in science and nature.

I looked at old botanical illustrations, posters, and journals of historical naturalists for inspiration:

I enjoyed learning Ray's techniques for shading and 3D effects. I'm a Photoshop novice as well, so the textures were a fun introduction. Here are a few variations utilizing our different lessons:
