Here, I explored other design aesthetics inspired by the 20th-century including organic design, biomorphism, and streamlining:

That’s awesome! I really liked using Arabic words in your design. As you know, Arabic has a lot of beautiful fonts that can be used in such projects. One of the oldest fonts is writing without any dots and I think it might be awesome to use. I’m excited to see your final project, Good Luck!

I really like the idea of rotating the artifact to create the shadow, you should see if there’s ways to play with the outlines so they interact to create different patterns!


Your sketches are so cool! I think you have really good sense of art and a very clear idea of what you are creating for this project. May I ask what app you are using for the sketches?

I like how you explored both biomorphism and organic design. The two both compliment and contrast each other. Very clear sketching!
