Design Objective

Design Statement

Create a poster collage in Photoshop based on a poem entitled, Fly With the Bird, using a minimum of five images. The collage required reading the poem and deciphering themes that can be used in the collage. The differing images should be composed in a way in that the final composition is a unified whole.

The poem was about a person who felt unwanted and lonely. After feeling abandoned and uncared for, the author finally embraces acceptance. My interpretation on the poem was a positive feeling because the subject found peace. To express the happy and positive feelings of achievement, I used bright colors. The birds are flying freely around the girl because she is now free to do what she likes. I was able to create the composition through masks, brushes, and stock imagery.
