This was a poster done for my Interior Design 197 studio class. It was very difficult trying to find room for all of the many elements while still keeping the related content close together. While I like the density and arrangement of the right side of the page, I had a lot of trouble figuring the negative space on the right side of the poster. As a result, I think the whole piece is a bit imbalanced. On the other hand, I like how organized it feels and I think that the page has a decent flow. This sort of project is very difficult for me because I don't have a lot of practice with composition or graphic design in general, but I was glad to have the experience. Though not p0erfect, I'm happy with the result.

These are all the sketch assignments done for my Interior Design 197 studio. I really enjoyed doing these, and they were always a challenge. I liked that each prompt was purposeful, in that they explored a unique way of sketching or looking at a space. For example, the sketch in which the focus was on drawing the negative space around the chair rather than the chair itself pushed me to not only draw something differently, but to think differently about the chair itself. I'm normally not very adventurous in my sketching, so these were a welcome push out of my comfort zone. I hope I can continue to try new things in my drawing even after this course.
"I love interior design because it is an incredible, if not the best, tool for storytelling. No other art form engages all of the senses the way interior design can..."
