THE VISUAL ELEMENTS OF DESIGN

Line, Shape, Texture, Value, and Color

IN COMBINATION OF MULTIPLE PARTS TO CREATE A HARMONIOUS WHOLE

THE PRINCIPLES OF COMPOSITION

UNITY AND VARIETY

SPACE


Unity and variety

UNITY AND VARIETY

UNITY

Unity can be defined as similarity, oneness, togetherness or cohesion

VARIETY

Variety can be defined as difference. You create variety when elements are changed.

Learning to find the right balance between unity and variety is the key to a visually successful work.

COMPOSITION IS AN ART AND NOT A SCIENCE

Unity and variety are the cornerstones of composition, combined effectively the composition is both cohesive and active.


Gestalt principles of design

GESTALT PRINCIPLES of DESIGN

The visual perception

that emphasizes the importance of

the whole composition through the

combination and use of :

grouping,

containment, repetition,

proximity,

continuity and closure

to create visualunity


Gestalt

GESTALT

Gestalt Psychology emphasizes the importance of unity, connection and completion.

THEORY:

VISUAL INFORMATION IS UNDERSTOOD AS A WHOLE BEFORE IT IS EXAMINED SEPARATELY.

Eaxmlpe:

Msot peolpe can raed any snetnace as lnog as the frsit and lsat lteters of ecah wrod are crroect.


Therefore you can create deliberate relationships among different visual elements

USING:

Containment

Grouping Repetition Proximity Continuity Closure


Containment to frame or create a boundary

CONTAINMENTTO FRAME OR CREATE A BOUNDARY

Gestalt Theory:

Our minds group objects by similar shapes and colors

Repetition

REPETITION

Repetition

occurs when

we use the

same visual

element or

effect over

and over

Rene Margritte Golconde, 1953


Proximity

PROXIMITY

In design the distance between visual elements is called proximity

A

B


Proximity can create fusion

PROXIMITY can create FUSION

FUSION = POSITIVE / NEGATIVE SPACE

FUSION WITH GRADATION OR TRANSPARENCY CAN DISSOLVE THE LINE BETWEENPOSITIVE / NEGATIVE SPACE


Proximity1

PROXIMITY

Michelangelo Creation of Adam 1510


Continuity

CONTINUITY

The fluid connection among compositional parts.

Skillful use of continuity can add visual movement to a design.


Closure the human mind will automatically connect visual fragments

CLOSURE:THE HUMAN MIND WILL AUTOMATICALLY CONNECT VISUAL FRAGMENTS

Closure makes it possible to communicate using implication


Closure

CLOSURE

Combining gestalt principles

COMBINING GESTALT PRINCIPLES

MANY ARTISTS AND DESIGNERS COMBINE SOME OR ALL THE PRINCIPLES OF GESTALT IN A SINGLE COMPOSITION

Patterns and grids

PATTERNS AND GRIDS

  • Pattern is created when any visual element is systematically repeated over an extended area.

  • Grid is created through a series of intersecting lines.

Weight and gravity

The orientation of objects within an image can influence the visual weight of the piece.

Balance

BALANCE

Refers to the equal distribution of weight or force among visual units


Balance1

BALANCE

SYMMETRICAL BALANCE

The more common method is to

place objects of equal mass or

weight on each side of the

balancing fulcrum-point

CALLED FORMAL BALANCE

Symmetrical

Asymmetrical

fulcrum

fulcrum

ASYMMETRICAL BALANCE

Looks for unique relationships that appear at first glance as though it ought not to work, yet it through variety creates interest.

CALLED INFORMAL BALANCE


Principles of two dimensional design

SYMMETRICAL BALANCESymmetrical balance, shapes or volumes are mirrored on either side of their vertical or horizontal axis

This is also referred to as

formal balance


Approximate symmetry

APPROXIMATE SYMMETRY

Approximate Symmetry is created when similar imagery appears on either side of a central axis

Richard Estes

Downtown - Reflections, 1991

Color woodcut

16 1/4 x 10 "


Asymmetrical balance

ASYMMETRICAL BALANCE

creates equilibrium between visual elements that are different in

size,

number,

weight, color

or

texture

This is also referred to as informal balance


Radial symmetry

RADIAL SYMMETRY

This is a simple diagram and example of radial balance.

Scale and proportion

SCALE AND PROPORTION

Scale and Proportion strongly affect compositional balance and emotional impact

Proportion refers to the relative size of visual elements within an image
