Art to Design Paintings to PagesMore invisible linesGrids and guidelines
Basic Graphic Design• Like paintings pages are designed with an underlying grid. This holds all the elements together and provides consistency through the publication.• A grid is usually defined as a number of columns. These range from a simple one column grid to a complex magazine grid which might use 8 or even 16 columns per page.
Display can be used to:• provide a visually stimulating environment• reward achievement• provide information• illustrate, exemplify and illuminate the curriculum• convey instructions
Display can be used to:• stimulate interest, enthusiasm, curiosity and questioning• establish and define high expectations and standards of work• reflect and define attitudes values and behaviour• affirm the class and school ethos• influence behaviour
Display can be used to:• reinforce learning• impress headteachers, parents and Ofsted inspectors• be used to help children discuss their work and evaluate their success• be used to illustrate targets and standards• present images and artefacts for study and appreciation
Display for a reason• A display is not the ancient craft of pin- board decorating.• It should have an educational purpose - or why bother?• The function should determine the aesthetic and the design.• Some types of display are:
Displays which celebratechildrens’ work• present the WORK simply and effectively• eye is drawn to work not to the display• text gives context and reason for celebrating it (indicates learning outcomes?)
Displays which demonstrate,inform, illuminate, illustrate• are like pages in books & magazines -which provide good models• that is they use images headings and text carefully to convey meaning• have a clear function in the learning environment, such as asking questions, reaffirming information, defining relationships etc. e.g.
Displays which enthuse andcelebrate the work of a class• for instance the Christmas displays seen in December• often done with, or by groups/classes• these may legitimately be decorative, frivolous, creative or theatrical
Displays which accompanylearning• some displays keep pace with learning they could be an evolving resource or reference collection• they could become a class scrap book or sketch book• they are unfinished and possibly disorganised
Displays which decorate• some displays simply decorate• sometimes they reflect the ethos of the school (or confirm values of orderliness, neatness, discipline, hard work) - sometimes not• teachers often put a lot of effort into this type of display time = money (buy some posters instead?)
Displays which use drapes• These displays show that the teacher has been on a display course or read a book about display.

In a nutshellIt helps to know about the invisible gridsthat can give visual coherence to apicture, graphic or display.Once understood these rules can bebroken.Displays should have an understoodeducational purpose.Form should follow function.
