I told my friend about this class, and she suggested that I use this website called “Canva”, and now I’m highly recommending it to anyone taking this class or needing to design things in general. I love how easy the site is to use, and although not everything is free, the majority of the options are and I was able to create this simplistic movie poster for this assignment. I originally was going to find a sticker of a candle I liked and arrange it on the background 16 times, but I couldn’t find one that I liked that looked simple enough, so I chose the number candles instead. I messed around with it for a bit after, and tried to see if I wanted to add any other elements such as balloons, a birthday cake, or borders, but I felt I was straying away from the challenge of being minimalist and kept it to this! Also, I’m going to try and start using other fonts for my blog post than the regular old Times New Roman and choose ones that I think go along with the assignment/fit the mood of it.
P.S. – The movie is 16 Candles in case you haven’t heard of it or seen it! Molly Ringwald is amazing in it, go watch!
