Upward & Onward 2018
"Using EGC’s school motto as inspiration and combined with my passion for handcrafted lettering, I created an abstract design that explores the natural flora and fauna of the goldfields. My aim is to create an inspiring design for the students to think positive and connect with your surrounds to stay present.”
