Transcript

  • 1. Formal Principles of Design (composition) • Unity and Variety • Balance (Symmetry and Asymmetry) • Emphasis or Dominance • Scale and Proportion • Rhythm • Economy
  • 2. Unity and Variety • Unity = oneness, wholeness, elements go together • Variety = difference, contrast, enlivens
  • 3. Ways to Achieve Unity • Repetition • Alignment • Continuity
  • 4. Unity thru Repetition
  • 5. Unity thru Repetition
  • 6. Unity thru Alignment
  • 7. Unity thru Alignment
  • 8. Unity thru Continuity
  • 9. Ways to Achieve Variety • Contrast (of lines, shapes, values, etc) • Hybridity (mixing differing elements, genres, styles, media etc) • Fragmentation (breaking apart) and Discontinuity
  • 10. Variety and Contrast
  • 11. Variety Fragmentation Hybridity
  • 12. Unity and Variety
  • 13. Unity and Variety
  • 14. Unity and Variety
  • 15. Balance • Feeling of the counterbalancing weights of visual forms and effects • Two types: Symmetry and Asymmetry
  • 16. Symmetrical Balance
  • 17. Symmetrical Balance (approximate)
  • 18. Asymmetrical Balance
  • 19. Asymmetrical Balance
  • 20. Asymmetrical Balance
  • 21. Asymmetrical Balance
  • 22. Emphasis • An element that is the most dominant or noticeable in a composition • A focal point
  • 23. Ways to Achieve Emphasis • Isolation • Framing • Pointing • Contrast
  • 24. Ways to Achieve Emphasis or Dominance
  • 25. Ways to Achieve Emphasis or Dominance
  • 26. Ways to Achieve Emphasis or Dominance
  • 27. Ways to Achieve Emphasis or Dominance
  • 28. Scale and Proportion • Scale - Relative size of object to similar objects • Proportion – Relative size of parts of object relative to other parts
  • 29. Scale
  • 30. Scale
  • 31. Scale
  • 32. Proportion
  • 33. Proportion
  • 34. Rhythm
  • 35. Rhythm • A repeating pattern creates a sense of flowing, increasing, or staccato movement • Similar to music or dance rhythm
  • 36. Flowing Rhythm
  • 37. Increasing Rhythm
  • 38. Increasing and Flowing Rhythm
  • 39. Staccato Rhythm
  • 40. Staccato Rhythm
  • 41. Staccato Rhythm
  • 42. Staccato Rhythm
  • 43. Economy • Getting to the essential elements, distillation, “less is more”, part of abstraction
  • 44. Economy
  • 45. Economy
  • 46. Economy
  • 47. Economy
  • 48. Elements and Principles: Putting it all together • Foregrounded elements = color, shape, space • Complementary color scheme • Unity from repetition and alignment (shapes and colors) • Unity working with variety • Flowing rhythm
  • 49. Elements and Principles: Putting it all together • Foregrounded elements = color, shape, texture, value • Implied Diagonal lines • Unity from repetition and alignment (shapes, hand, and colors) • Unity working with variety • Emphasis on Kennedy
  • 50. Elements and Principles: Putting it all together • Foregrounded elements =, shape, texture, value • Vertical Forces gives it power • Economy • Variety through contrast • Emphasis
  • 51. Elements and Principles: Putting it all together • Foregrounded elements =, shape, texture, value • Implied vertical line • Unity from continuity (heads looking like they are one) • Variety through contrast • Approximate symmetry
  • 52. Elements and Principles: Putting it all together • Foregrounded elements = color, line, texture, • Flowing rhythm • Unity from repetition Unity working with variety • Complementary color scheme (red and green) • Economy
