I decided to draw inspiration from De Stijl Art movement and kept Mondrian’s work as the ground for my colour and grid selection. The reason I chose this movement was simply because I hadn’t read enough about the movement, and this assignment gave me the chance to not only read but also draw inspiration from it.

Grids
As I was dealing with fixed compositions made by batchmates, neither could be cropped or altered. Thus I decided to use to grids, with colours alternating in all pages.
