A Note About Shapes

My most recent graphic design exercise has been to deconstruct some posters I like. Just whittle them down to their most basic shapes.

My mentor lent me a most excellent book on the subject by Molly Bang. The story of Little Red Riding Hood... using only shapes and color.

A whole book focusing on design concepts at their most basic and childlike form. I keep opening this book up and then seeing my favorite posters in a whole new light.

So I reluctantly starting working away at this little exercise.

This exercise is a product of my internship with Everwitt Productions, LLC.
