LA08 – Layout pt.2

Symmetry/Asymmetry

Brief:

  1. On an A4 landscape page, draw four equal squares. Create 4 more pages in this way. So, you’ll have 5 pages with four squares on each.
  2. Draw one or two squares or rectangles in each empty square to achieve the following visual effects (refer to your textbook, p.41 as guidance). You can work with the interaction of rectangles and squares to make the balance or imbalance more evident.
    • Entering left
    • Movement to the right
    • Movement to the left
    • Movement downwards
    • Movement upwards
    • Balance
    • Tension
    • Symmetry/asymmetry

    Produce at least two different versions of each effect, recording your results each time. Explain in one or two sentences what you wanted to achieve (as shown in your manual).

  3. Submit your drawings and findings at WordPress.

Second attempt at tension did not quite succeed at expressing the feeling as the first one. I think it’s because I got it right the first time, and trying to recreate the same thing without repeating the same method made it the failure that it is.

The sketch with several rectangles is not a part of the assignment. I just wanted to try something out with more elements than two.
