This assignment was in my Introduction to Graphic Design class. We were to create a 5x5 box using any material that we want. The box must be something that represents an event that shaped us into who we are today or a part of our personality.
This is my box created with legos. I call it “Broken Promises” because it represents my relationship with my dad and other people in my life. Growing up as a child my dad was there but as time passed and fade away so did he. As a child he promised that we’d build a go kart, but it was a promise that he couldn’t keep.
As you can see there are 3 pillars holding this together.
Black & White Pillar - The black and white pillar represents a friend that is very close to me. This particular pillar has a window because this friend showed me that there is more to the world, places and people that can help me grow.
Blue & White Pillar - This pillar is blue and white because it represents the heavens. This pillar is for my godmother whom helped me get closer to God and learn about religion.
Red Pillar - This pillar is red because it represents love. This pillar is doubled in size because it is for my mother who had to give me double the love and help as I began to grow.
They are all connected because together, they helped me become the man that I am today.
