Contrast

  1. 1. Contrast<br />Ashana Schreiner<br />Janet Williams<br />A3 Desktop Publishing<br />9-14-09<br />
  2. 2. Contrast is one of the principle in design.<br />Contrast occurs when two elements are different.<br />The greater in difference the greater in contrast.<br />Four methods of creating contrast are:<br />Difference in size.<br />Value <br />Color<br />And type.<br />Contrast add interest to the page and provides a means of emphasizing what is important or re directing the reader’s eye.<br />On a page the reader does not no where to look if there is not contrast.<br />
  3. 3. The relative lightness and darkness of two elements of each other can create a contrast in value. Whether with shades of gray or tints of a single color, the further apart the values the greater the contrast.<br />Type contrast can utilize size, value, and color to create contrast. Mix large type with small type. <br />
  4. 4. Other ways to create contrast:<br /> -using texture<br /> -shape<br /> -alignment<br /> -direction<br /> -movement<br />Remember the key is to use a substantial difference.<br />A bold face, a font size, change that is barely noticeable, and colors that are too close in value look more like a mistake than a attempt to provide emphasis or interest. <br />
  5. 5. Image to bright, appears to be washed out.<br />
  6. 6. Image to dark, not enough details come through.<br />
  7. 7. Image has correct proportions of dark/med/light, with good detail.<br />
