Final Project

Echoes of Youth

This final project encapsulates joyful events experienced throughout my teenage years into early adult hood. Inspired by countless, personal treasured memories filled with laughter and happiness. Celebrating youth whilst showcasing important figures who greatly impacted my life, curated from a variety of images captured over many years. Imagery throughout this project initially began from an array of multimedia collages, developing into designs incorporating playful colours and busy prints. Creating an energetic fun feeling encouraging others to look back on their own nostalgic memories.
