the meaning or relationship of meanings of a sign or set of signs
I was fortunate enough to have the opportunity to do a weekend-long workshop with Spanish designer Manuel Estrada. I was inspired by his process. Using collage to "sketch" his concepts was an entirely new approach for me, so for this portion of the project I decided to step away from my sharpies and sketchbook,pick up my exacto knife and get to work. It was far more difficult than I had imagined. But, the process and experience was well worth stepping outside of my comfort zone.
