Transcript of "Elements of design"

  1. 1. Elements of Design •LINE-a path made by a moving point •SHAPE-an area enclosed by a line •FORM-physically occupies space (3-D). The illusion of form is when an object or objects look like they occupy space, even though they are 2-D •SPACE-the distance around, between, above, below, and within an object •COLOR-an element that has intensity, hue, and value •VALUE-lightness and darkness, shadows and shading •TEXTURE-the surface feel of an object (rough, smooth)
  2. 2. Principles of Design • BALANCE-visual weight of the composition (symmetrical, asymmetrical) • EMPHASIS-center of interest • UNITY-a feeling of togetherness or wholeness (harmony) • REPETITION --repeating the elements of design. This creates RHYTHM. • VARIATION--varying or changing the elements of design. This creates MOVEMENT. • PROPORTION-size relationship, how large or small an object is compared to another object or it’s environment
