In honor of Audrey Hepburn’s 86th birthday today here’s my Design Project 1 from my undergrad at design school days three years ago. It was during my Color & Design class. I used Photoshop to posterize the original image and use complementary colors purple and yellow.  Often times many of us fashion fans only share younger images of her (myself included) so I wanted to include an older picture of her at age 60.  Not only was she a fashion icon, actress, but also humanitarian thanks to her work with UNICEF.  To find lesser known facts about you can click here.
