Project Builder 1

A cable manufacturer wants to improve its lackluster image—especially after a scandal that occurred earlier in the year.  The company has hired you to create a dynamic image of one of its bestselling products, which they plan to use in an image advertising campaign.  You have been provided with a picture of the product, and your job is to create a more exciting image suitable for print ads.
