For this design challenge I have been provided with texts from films, books or poems. I’ve had to pick one of these and use it as an inspiration to create a image that represents this text.
Out of all the texts given I chose the quote –
“Friends come and go… my soldiers, stay eternal” – 2Pac
To get some inspiration I made a mood board of images I might want to use that I feel tie in with the quote. To do this I went FILE > AUTOMATE > CONTACT SHEET.
Some reasoning behind my selected images
1st Picture – Obviously its Tupacs quote so I wanted to integrate him into the image.
2nd Picture – I wanted to use a scroll to put my quote on because why not?
3rd Picture – When googling around the subject of eternal it either came up with the typical infinity symbol but I found this. This symbol stands for eternal friendship.
4th Picture – He uses the word soldiers and I don’t believe he literally means Army soldiers but your everyday friends and the hands represents the friends.
5th – I wanted to decorate the hands so I chose this bracelet, I actually own a bracelet similar that was given to me by my best friend for my 18th.
6th- Finally this is a dog tag, often when I think of friends the word brotherhood comes to mind and dog tags follow. This especially ties in with the word soldiers.
