Here is my report: ma02-report_aamot
Most people have seen good and bad examples of design across various platforms. These can range anything from a nice logo, a eye catching poster to an engaging website. But what is it that makes one design better than another and what makes a customer buy one product rather than another? Is it just by chance or are there actual fundamental principles that result in a better design which engage a potential customer more? A design that looks good and makes one think – “wow what a great product.” As we go through this time together we will learn some simple visual principles and visualise them. In the first part of the project you will need to to come up with your own ideas for each of the nine design principles presented below.
A few examples of principles can be found here Creative Bloq. Do some of your own research too.
The principles I chose were Figure/Ground, Closure and Continuation. It took a lot of experimenting with shapes before I understood the concepts of the principles, and before I figured out which ideas were best. Here is the result of my work this week, and here is my report: ma01-report
Figure/Ground: foreground and background
