After reading “A Designers Code of Ethics” by Mike Monteiro there were a few things that stood out that I wanted to use as inspiration for my two editorial pieces. The first was how designers impact the world. We all share one planet so we should consider others as well as take responsibility for what we create. The other bit of information I found interesting stems from the idea of taking responsibility for our work. Our work is a reflection of ourselves. With that mindset, creating something meant for harm, for example, would reflect that the artist is ok with that.

This was my first time creating something for editorial use but I tackled it like I would any other piece: taking it from thumbnail to a fully rendered image after a handful of tweaks. Placing the final pieces into the mock-ups was also helpful to put them into perspective and get an idea of how viewers would see the pieces.
