Zesty – Something that's zesty is fun and exciting.
The objective of this project was to create a composition using only ten (10) pre-selected Adobe Stock images in the theme of Zesty.
Project proposed by Adobe during OFFF Design Conference in Barcelona, Spain. #TakeTenContest

In my discovery process I asked myself – what does it mean to be Zesty? Often the term is associated with food, predominantly fruit of the citrus variety; lemons, oranges, limes. I wanted to go beyond that and took the overall direction into outer space. I love outer space, the idea of galaxies millions of light years away, of worlds beyond worlds. In my search for references I came across some inspiration that led me to this concept of a universal smorgasbord, a playground if you will.
Back before smartphones and game consoles occupied children's playtime there was a fun and competitive game played with these shiny hard balls known as marbles. Each one unique in its design – with that idea in mind I decided to create some marbles of my own. Several of the images transformed into some beautiful and intricate designs. For the elements that were expressly worldly such as the sky and the skin I felt to contrast those as 3 dimensional cubes.

As each of the elements came together, the layered images began to give the 'Zesty' smorgasbord a swirling effect forcing the canvas to have movement, and movement is energetic, lively and animated.

The end result is this galactic swirling playground of vibrant colors and cool looking marble planets caught up in this technicolor wormhole in a galaxy far far away.

Zesty | Energetic | Active | Lively | Effervescent | Vibrant | Energetic
Whether its being 'Full of Life' or High Spirited – What expresses your Zesty
