The reason why I chose the one of the far right on the second row is because it seemed the most fun to manipulate in the grid.
The reason why I chose my final design is because it seemed the most interesting.
The reason why I chose the (which I sadly lost the inking plan file to) I did is because it looked like I used 25 squares, but I really used 100 and I liked that look.
It was a very interesting process. I never thought I could make a consistent design, even though there are flaws with the final design. Overall, I think I learned a lot about repetition in the unifying principles of design.
