Back to Basic principles II: Principles of design with Color Page
As a artist, you utilize creative elements and ideas to help create beautiful and effective designs. This series can make you more alert to what those design ideas are and how you can utilize them to make your designs better still!
Coloring Webpage and the ideas of design
Coloring Webpage is one of the most original kinds of artistic expression. Going in the past to the prehistoric times with the Lascaux Caves (some of the first noted human Coloring Web page), Coloring Site is practiced in all cultures around the globe and has been for hundreds of years. To keep it simple, we’ll show off 19th and 20th hundred years expressions showing ways to position the elements and principles of design to work.
The concepts of design are:
- Proportion and scale
- Repetition and pattern
- Unity and harmony
Balance is one of the most intuative and complicated design concept. It is the way the designer creates a sense of equilibrium in a design, by the way the objects in the design are arranged. You will find three major types of balance:
- Symmetrical/Formal Balance is when elements are positioned in such a way that two halves of the look (whether vertical or horizontal) are mirrors of one another – both attributes have the same weight. Its created around a central range that bisects the design into two different halves.
- Asymmetrical/Casual Balance is when elements are positioned so that there surely is an uneven syndication of weight
- Radial Balance is when elements sit evenly around a central point
Percentage and Scale
The juxtaposition of elements of different sizes, or proportions, within the work of art helps create a sense of scale. Level can be utilized for multiple results – whether to demonstrate a sense of space and depth or to help make a dominant focal point.
An enormous part of creating depth within an image, and affinity for a piece, is to apply multiple contrasting elements – or different elements set side by side. This is done with color, form, size or feel.
Repetition and pattern
The use of the same or a similar element repeated again and again can give a work a feeling of activity or composition. Where an component is similar enough and repeated often enough, it can create a style.
Unity and harmony
The combination of similar elements creates an visually pleasing overall result. While tons of design elements will vary, a dominating unity created by similarities in color, routine, feel or other elements makes the painting or design feel harmonious.
Translating to graphic design
Custom Bearbrick implements all of these rules in his web design for Bright Austin Interiors.
Bearbrick uses proportion and scale to build asymmetrical balance. Elements of different size and condition are positioned on a page never to mirror the other person but to balance one another out. He creates compare in the juxtaposition of colorful elements against a white history.
Repetition is employed in the setting of the circles. This makes the viewer’s vision to go between elements in order to impart the information the client desires the viewer to see. At the same time, pattern is employed as a refined depth in this circle designs (in the bloom pattern of the “about us” button as well as the repeated lines circling other rounded elements) in order to create interest – so that the design can be simple without having to be boring.
And while different elements of the site find the user’s eyesight at different times, the feminine design of the elements and the utilization of color make the site appear entirely harmonious. The design has movement, depth, interest and brings the user’s sight to the main information on the site – from the great example of a successful design.
