Created digital comps of the pictures of the work following last time’s sketches.

Edits/notes from last time:

Tension — played around with feelings of imbalance for the second picture.

Comfort — the first picture looked a weird/not what I expected after being put to Illustrator. Perhaps because the borders of the individual square are not present and thus making the visuals appear more rectangular-ish than stacked squares.

Congestion — followed instructor’s suggestion and zoomed in a bit to see how it appears.

Playfulness — Not too much change here. The first picture looks a bit static now to me since previously I drew the border square tilted.

Order — Not too much change either, made attempts to align things.
