  • IDENTITY
    IDENTITYMy summer project is a visual exploration of my own identity, inspired by some of my favourite contemporary print designers. I’ve never had one specific style but I am interested in exploring more techniques and abstract ways of designing, specifically in more colourful, analogue ways. These prints are abstracted images of myself from over summer, using my favourite colours to create a printed identity of myself.
