As a 7th grade student, my second semester choice was Product Design. Our first assignment was to build a Lightbox. Using Adobe Illustrator, pencil and paper, and a laser cutter, I was able to construct a Lightbox (as you can see below). I created this project because I have been to Japan before, a place I dearly enjoyed. Since Mt. Fuji was one of the places I have been during my trip, I thoroughly enjoyed this particular location. As a result, I chose it for my Lightbox.

Throughout this project, I came to difficulty on downloading Adobe Illustrator. Fortunately, our product design teacher, Mr. Layman, came to my assist and I was able to successfully download the application with this help.

This picture below was one of my first attempts on making the layers of my Lightbox.

A couple weeks later I have finished assembling the Lightbox with the help of my peers and teachers.

At the end of the project, I felt this was a fun and challenging project; I was a complete novice at Adobe Illustrator at the beginning. Now, I feel proud of my project and I love it!
