My daughter knew her chosen career in mid high school - while many of her friends were umming and ahhing over various subject choices my dd knew exactly which direction she wanted to head. In Year 10 she completed this graphic design work in her computing studies class. She did this mostly on her own, reading through texts and viewing online tutorials. She continued on and has just this month graduated as a graphic designer doing both visual communication and multimedia design diplomas. She probably cringes a little when she views this now, seeing all the little mistakes but at the time we were so proud of her for putting so much time and effort into something she loved.
and here is my page documenting her work. I've used the colours from the mood board, extended the floral theme to my patterned paper and added in hearts and arrows.
