Final Project

For my final I wanted to take my favorite project we had done this semester and incorporate all the things we talked about, played, watched, read, and discussed throughout the course. My favorite assignment was the word cloud bubble because I really loved how strong of a message it could have. You could change the font, color, and shape outline to emphasize a specific theme that speaks to you.

Within the shape you can see words that I feel have helped to shape this semester’s course.
