Design Project

Your client has opened a coffee shop near your home office.  She doesn’t have a big budget for purchasing artwork, so she’s asked you to create some digital art to hang on her walls.  She gives you an old photo and tells you she wants you to use it to create “something old and modern at the same time.”
