Was taken as a part of my photography class to which I used as a part of my portfolio review. It was taken on a day at the zoo. I also love to take photo's on trips and prefer scenery then photo's with groups in it, which is one of the reasons why I'm attaching it with my portfolio.

In my Design class we were to create/ think of project we haven't done yet but wanted to do. First off I created these illustrations to be a part of folders but for our final review I changed them to create and promote a more purposeful quality. So I was able to use the images of my original and create more for a book based on all animals of the alphabet. With using the most known animals and the use of fonts only, this idea was able to be turned into this beautiful package/ book design.
