Designing my weekly post

Its that time of the week again folks. The time when I gather up all of the work I have done over the week and put it in one neat, organized blog post. This week covered design which is a concept that is unique to everyone. Everyone has opinions on what looks good and what things do not go well with other things… “things” is a very broad word and I do not particularly like to use that word because of the fact, so I am sorry. But yeah, we had a list of assignments and tasks to complete as usual which I have completed over the last week. You can find all of the weeks work below with greater detail and explanation of each in the original assignments blog post!
