Throughout the semester I have gained valuable skills relating to my projects, both in this course and outside of it. I have learned how to focus on the aesthetic of a design rather than solely the functionality, which has helped me in my design processes. Both of my projects this semester have contained some sort of light aspect within their respective aesthetics. My upcycle project was a soup can candle holder that embodied the night sky, while my final project was a magnetic makeup organizer that was inspired by neon signs. I found a need for both of these projects, but really wanted the aesthetic to be the focal point in each.
