Our next project in Visual Communication I, taught by Jamie Gray, will consist/ has consisted of making a mindmap to narrow down subject matter and a list of words for the sophomore's next project, which is a book, displaying 9 of the words that we have come up with.

Beauty is either harder or easier to see in things that are different. This project will put me to the test.
