The front of a Leavers' Dress

This week I have been working on the front of the Leavers' Dress - concentrating on the responses to 'What moment are you most looking forward to?" 

 

The words are made using the font Braggadocio and in shades of grey - all of which stylistically refer to the Apple Mac loading symbol. The idea is that as the students leave school they are about to start their life adventure, and the loading symbol represents this exciting anticipatory moment in their lives. Silk has been used to simulate the movement of the symbol.
