Graphic Design Assignment Word’s

From the list of emotions we were given I was not sure which word i wanted to do. From all the words available I felt drawn towards the ‘darker’ feeling emotions, such as ‘Lonely’, ‘Depressed’, ‘Sad’ & ‘Fear’.

Therefore i decided to do a bit more work into the ideas of them all. I feel that in some respects they are linked to each other.
