The Basics – Design fundamentals we all should know, and use

25 Apr

Over the next few days I am going to go over some resources for learning the basics. I truly feel that the basic art, or design principals apply to your work. There are different views about what the basics are? Here are a few different examples of sites that define the “basics”

Balance

Rhythm

Proportion

Dominance

Unity

Or…..

LINE

SHAPE

DIRECTION

SIZE

TEXTURE

COLOUR

VALUE

Or….

Balance

Proportion

Rhythm

Emphasis

Unity

Or….

Color

Line

Shape

Value or tone

Texture

Volume or form

Or…. Ok I think you get my point. Also it depends on the medium that you are using, photography, 3D animation, Motion Graphics? I think everyone can agree that color is one of the basics of most of these, even if it is the lack thereof. We will start there and move on into some of the others that apply to almost any facet of design. So stick around if you never paid attention in art class.
