I have recently begun to take a couple of graphic design courses online through CAL ARTS. Last week one of our assignments for the fundamentals class was to choose an object - not too simple - and create around 10 images of that object using different materials and styles. In addition we were to create a few images that would tell the viewers more than this is an image of more than just that object - by putting other symbols into the image. For example putting a apple with a bite taken out of it on a rectangle might signify Apple the company.
I chose an egg as my object - which yes, is too simple - but actually more complex thus. How? Well... because how do you make something that is that simple more complex.
