ADVANCE DESIGN 21 DECEMBER
Gabriel Vincent Moon
February 14, 2022

This month’s focus is on supplementing my portfolio with two interaction design projects. The first, inspired by my growing political awareness, is a product for the exploration of fascist ideology. The second, a visual model for understanding the Bitcoin unspent transaction output landscape. My goal this year is to keep up my social media presence with the processes developed last year to expand my network. I will be reaching out directly to many to share my new work.
