Before class: Download image or design idea to a USB or be able to login to an email and download the image concept. If you are unable to download or create a specific design, have a very detailed idea in mind and email it ahead of time to email@example.com. If needed, provide references in the form of links or photos. The best format would be SVG files or PDF files.
