“Color is a power which directly influences the soul.” —Wassily Kandinsky

Objective
To find an article and redesign it.

Approach
The article that I found was titled "The Meaning Behind the Many Colors of India's Holi Festival," written by Victoria Finlay for the Smithsonian Journeys Quarterly.

I found the writers experience in India for the Holi festival to be quite specatacular and make the reader truly feel like they are there. The imagery of the article was also really beautiful, but the layout of the article didn't have the same lively feeling that the writing did. It was too clean and too stiff so I made it really all about the color of the Holi experience.
