Visual composition slideshow

  1. 1. A line can lead you to a certain object oreven pinpoint you to something forinstance a globe, If you take away all thewording form the country’s you get thelines from the equator and the magneticpoles they can guide the eye tosomething. A tree branch is another type of line for instance the branch is leading up to the leaves and that’s naturally where your eyes would lead up to. Mostly everything you see has lines some are hard to find but most objects do have them.
  2. 2. • The three basic types of shapes are geometric, natural, and abstract.• Things like ink blobs and leafs have a 2d shape, design
  3. 3. • Form is the three-dimensionality of an object. Shape is only two-dimensional; form is three-dimensional. You can hold a form; walk around a form and in some cases walk inside a formHousehold objects are 3D as well like a Cubebut a square Is just flat..
  4. 4. • Color is something that we ALL respond to, it can change mood change the way you think, the way food even tastes! So in short it can effect the human nervous system.
  5. 5. • Texture is always a part of our designs whether intentional or not. It is the visual or tactile surface characteristics of a piece.
  6. 6. • We live in a three-dimensional world of depth. When we look around us, some things seem closer, some further away. Sometimes it could be illusions as well.
  7. 7. When light from a single direction (e.g. our sun) hits anobject, part of the object is in shadow. Light and dark areaswithin an image provide contrast that can suggest volume.Factors that can affect our feelings towards an imageinclude the direction of the light source, from above orbelow, and the gentleness or abruptness of the half tones
  8. 8. • Since we can’t actually show motion in a single image, we have to rely on “tricks” that cause the viewer to perceive motion. I.E a blurry picture or something that symbolizes movement
  9. 9. • Mass equals size. Each piece you create has a physical mass. The physical mass or size is the actual dimensions of the piece height, width, thickness/weight (of paper), and depth (3D objects). Things that you know are light I.E the balloon on the Left compared to the scaffold pole on the right
  10. 10. • Tone can also be regarded as value as both terms refer to the various degrees of lightness or darkness. At this point, the color (or hue) of the subject is unimportant
  11. 11. Value refers to the relative lightness or darkness of acertain area. Value can be used for emphasis. Variations invalue are used to create a focal point for the design of apicture. A light figure on a dark background will beimmediately recognized as the center of attention, similarlyfor a dark figure on a mostly white background
  12. 12. • Space is the area provided for a particular purpose. It may have two dimensions (length and width), such as a floor, or it may have three dimensions (length, width, and height). Space includes the background, foreground and middle ground.
  13. 13. Primarily there are three types of balance in page design:symmetrical, Asymmetrical , radial
  14. 14. • Emphasis in design provides the focal point for the piece. It is a way of making the element that is most important stand out in the design. Emphasis is sometimes called dominance. Creating emphasis can be done by changing font or image sizes, placing objects in the front of the composition, or using contrasting colors.
  15. 15. • Proportion refers to the relative size and scale of the various elements in a design. The issue is the relationship between objects, or parts, of a whole. This means that it is necessary to discuss proportion in terms of the context or standard used to determine proportions.
  16. 16. • Newsletters, magazines, brochures, annual reports, and books often have many visual elements: columns of text, headlines, photos, illustrations, pull-quotes, etc. Grids allow the designer to build page-to-page consistency into these documents. Things that go in a pattern I.E 1,2,3,4 or a repeating pattern with shapes I.E ◙ ♀ ◙ ♀. Even Zebra Stripes are a pattern
  17. 17. • Unity is a way to make objects in a piece seem as if they are related to each other. There are many ways that this can be achieved.
  18. 18. • The simplest method of making objects appear to belong together is to group them closely together. This allows us to see a pattern.
  19. 19. Another method often used to promote unity is the use ofrepetition. Repetition of color, shape, texture or object can beused to tie a work together.
  20. 20. • A much more subtle method of unifying a work involves the continuation of line, edge or direction from one area to another. Continuation is often used in books and magazines to tie the elements of a page together with the use of rules, and by lining up edges of copy, headlines and graphics.
  21. 21. • Contrast occurs when two elements are different. The greater the difference the greater the contrast. The key to working with contrast is to make sure the differences are obvious. Four common methods of creating contrast are by using differences in size, value, color, and type.
  22. 22. • Harmony in painting is the visually satisfying effect of combining similar, related elements. e.g. adjacent colors on the color wheel, similar shapes etc.
  23. 23. • One of the easiest ways to create a visual structure and give your piece an organized feel is to space items according to their relation to one another. This is called the rule of proximity, and it simply means that related items should appear closer together than items that are not related. In this way, the spacing itself serves as a visual clue as to what’s related and what’s not and as to where one piece of information stops and starts.
  24. 24. • Variety means "to change the character" of an element, to make it different.
  25. 25. • I Googled the titles for all my images I.E Varity
