This week's homework was about Flow. I chose to do a couple different types of flow.
Shape: The ovals/circles are shape flow. The flourishes in the frame, the lipstick swatch flourish, an the flourish of the tails all flow together and have similar shapes. The same with the ribbon in the banner as well. The fluidness of it matches the flourishes of the frame.
Reflective: I chose to make my logo about looking back but also looking forward. The white cat represents the past, things were lighter and innocent in a way in the age of glamour in the 50's. The black cat represents the future/present where makeup trends are heavier and darker. Likewise, my color swatches reflect that, I wanted to keep within the color palette so I didn't make the present/future trend swatch dark, nudes/pinks are more progressive. The red lipstick is a classic trend, hence the lipstick swatch/lipstick facing/placement on the left side of the canvas. Same with the pink/nude color. It's facing the moving forward direction.
Line: To draw the eye and show a difference and reinforce structure I inserted some line flow as well, also reinforcing the linear motion of time from point A to B, past to present.
