This week Lauren, Bethany and I were each responsible for producing one mockup of a graphic to be used in an online course in journalism. The professor wanted to convey the central idea of her class with one image, expressed either in the form of a social media newsfeed, newspaper, or magazine. Given some specifications, I first came up with the design below:

The design I submitted as final was the one above, with the hard drop shadow.
