Necesidades de diseño
I would like a collage of my work which exemplifies the elements of design (color, texture, size and shape) along with some other images that represent what I cover in my book, like a color wheel made of beads (see shared Dropbox entitled file “titlepageimage.docx” for a collage example that I used in a PowerPoint presentation), gemstones and some of the jewelry symbols I explain (Buddha head, peace symbol, tree of life). I also prefer serif typefaces.
Note: In the shared Dropbox file, in addition to providing photos of my work, I have provided a color wheel graphic image (“largecolorwheelnocolorlisted.jpg”) for which I do have written permission to use in the book.
