Defining Asymmetrical Balance and Determining Its Use in Art and Design Design principles are the foundation of a good design. The design principles you learned will guide you in creating visual media. An efficient design will guide the viewer to see what you intend for them to look in the

Entitled The Properties of Light, the on-site installation became a sensitive dialogue between the two creative disciplines – one that is now celebrated in a new book
We continue to explore the principles of graphic design. I have introduced you to the theories of hierarchy, emphasis and contrast and this month we explore balance. What is Balance? Balance relates to how we arrange elements within the design space to ensure equal distribution of visual weight.
Things Organized Neatly is a thoroughly enjoyable new look at everyday objects, carefully arranged and laid out – such that the arrangement is something of a work of art in of itself. This is most satisfying if you’ve got a serious inner neat freak (definitely guilty of this shortcoming myself).
Design, fashion art, architecture all make use of symmetry. If a design or a structure is symmetrical, then it has balance and harmony, which people say makes it pleasant to look at. Symmetry speaks of deep connections that lie underneath superficial differences. When symmetry appears even subtly, it causes an intuitive
Visual designers see things differently, a matter, I suppose, both of instinct and of training. An example is the concept of “positive” and “negative” space. A designer looking at an object may be comprehending not only the object itself (positive space) but the space around it (negative space). In what
