      Senario:

      A client needs Christmas wrapping paper for an 8-year-old boy.

      • They would like it based on dinosaurs¬†
      • time limit 2 hours
      • present the finished Mock-up for presentation
      • use 4-6 colors

      No pressure, right?

      Here is what I came up with in just 2 hours:

      Super Quick

      Thinking quickly was definitely a challenge for me. Usually, I spend at least 2 hours researching and sketching before I solidify my ideas. For this challenge, I went right to sketching and then started creating the patterns within the first half-hour. Because my time was so limited, I had to keep the patterns very simple.

      Naturally, there had to be a T-rex wearing gloves on his tiny hands. And there had to be a Santa hat in there somewhere too. Coordinating papers are always a good idea. I created fun little dino tracks, a simple red stripe, and the same Hero pattern with a blue background instead of red.
