    I really loved your final designs for this project. They really have strong connotations to each of your words. You have great in-depth process work, and the research you’ve done definitely helps your overall design. Interesting/eclectic choice of pictures to connote meanings as well.

    Your process work is great. I think the images you chose are spot-on and I can appreciate the thought process going in to the final draft. The phrase “taking it further” kept getting thrown around in crit but that’s pretty vague and doesn’t necessarily apply to everything. I feel these are complete, especially “unmannered”. Each letter is unmannered in its own way and can stand alone. “Depreciation” works as well, as each letter is fading and the word looks good as a whole. I’m pretty sure we were supposed to use the same shape for each word but I still think they both turned out great.
