Conclusion

First of all i want to thank you for following along with me on this course.

We started with blank page and just couple of images, but at the end we have a design that we can all be proud of. It is unique and sparks creativity.

I really hope that you learn something and got inspired to go out there and design something even more spectacular.

Rememeber - you've got to keep designing, making mistakes and learning from them, because that is how every designer can get better at their craft.

Thank you again and all the best to you.
