While we were in the mockup phase, we needed to get a lot of assets. It’s a very time consuming process. Initially we were going to use the blue/yellow images for the collection panel on the homepage. Screen Shot 2016-05-03 at 7.44.40 PM

However, we decided that the blue/yellow is very distracting and doesn’t fit within the color scheme of the homepage. So we started brainstorming on new ideas. After some time, we thought of doing a “scattered” pieces shot.

It took me around 4 hours to carefully crop the background out. This is what the end product looked liked.

So we can see how just one thing takes so long to create. That’s why it’s great to pre-plan everything before execution. It’ll save a lot of time!
