These are some initial compositions that I’m exploring for the banner. For now the first seem like the best option. Will be playing around with more compositions this week!
Month: September 2018
Motif exploration 1
Development of papercuts into larger, complex compositions
After scanning, I digitized the shapes in photoshop.
After digitizing each composition, I tried to break them up to smaller motifs to try repeating the pieces.
I also tested cropping some of the bigger compositions to play with the layout.
More exploration to follow!
