    • Visual Literacy Project Katie Nesseth CI 225 Fall 2010
    • What is Visual Literacy?
      • Visual Literacy is the comprehension and application of design elements and principles.
      • Visual images saturate our world. We as observers must use Visual Literacy as a tool for communication because images are powerful to behold and can emotionally and psychologically impact us as a culture in a variety of ways.
      ? ? ? ?
    • Visual Literacy Includes:
      • Elements of Design
      • Point
      • Line

      • Texture
      • Color
      • Principles of Design

      • Harmony
      • Unity
      • Movement
      • Variety
    • Point
      • Point is the simplest element of design.
      • Point is the focus of a visual image.
      • Point draws the observer’s attention to something important.
    • Line
      • Line is the path of a point moving through space.
      • Lines can vary in width, length, direction, curvature, and even color.
      • A line is longer than it is wide and is used to create a shape.
    • Shape
      • Shape is a defined area that has an implied boundary surrounded by space.
      • Shape can take endless variances of physical forms and serve many purposes in images.
      Circle Square Triangle Rectangle Geometric Organic Etc.
    • Value
      • Value is the relative degrees of light and dark that add contrast to a visual image.
      • Value is used to describe objects and shapes in space.
      • Without value contrasts, visual images would be hard to see.
    • Texture
      • Texture defines surface characteristics.
      • Texture brings depth and dimension to a visual image.
      • Texture can be real or implied and can be experienced through touch or the illusion of touch.
    • Color
      • Color stimulates visual images by reflecting or absorbing light we see from the intended surface.
      • Color can be used in a variety of combinations and can evoke different emotions.

    • Balance
      • Balance places parts of an image in an aesthetically pleasing arrangement to appear equally important.
      • Balance can be horizontal, vertical, and/or radial and can display different forms of symmetry.
    • Perspective
      • Perspective is the relationship between visual images arranged in space.
      • Perspective adds realism to objects in a visual image and can draw the observer in.
    • Harmony
      • Harmony refers to all parts of the image relating to and complementing each other.
      • Harmony pulls pieces of the image together.
    • Unity
      • Unity is the relationship among visual images and how they function together to contribute to the whole image.
    • Movement
      • Movement occurs when objects appear to be moving in the visual image.
      • Movement comes from the shapes, curves, forms, and lines used in the visual image.
    • Variety
      • Variety is the differences in objects that add visual interest.
      • Variety adds contrast.
      • Just by changing size, point of view or breaking the pattern you can add variety .
