This word was being talked about in Graphic design principles 1/COMD 1100. In class we couldn’t really even pronounce the word let alone define it but now i know that we were aiming for he first definition that it basically means left over debris.

I encountered this word while reading the task for Project #1 on September 4th, 2015. “Include in your bio a description of what you are passionate about, what you see as your design aesthetic,”
Now by knowing what aesthetic means I now understand that it is asking me about what I see as my design style and how I go about creating my works.
