E's and P's Study

Priniciple Of Design and Elements Of Design

1. What are the elements of design? Space, line, shape, form, texture, and color.
2. What are the principles of design? Balance, rhythm, proportion/scale, emphasis, and unity.
3. What is the principles repetition? Design is copied or repeated.
4. How does texture affect color? Smooth surfaces reflect more light than rough surfaces making them brighter and lighter. Rough surfaces absorb more light making them darker and less intense.
5. What do curve lines suggest? Adds a soft, grateful, effect to designs.
6. What is the differences between horizontal, vertical, and radial balance? Horizontal balance left and right parts are equal, vertical balance top and bottom are equal and radial balance elements radiate from design.
7. What do diagonal lines suggest? Suggest action, movement, and excitement.
8. What is space? The area provided for a particular purpose. Can have 2 or 3 dimensions.
9. What are four types of rhythm? Gradation, radiation, repetition, and continuous line/
10. What is asymmetrical balance? Example? Parts of the design are not identical but are equal in visual weight. For example a room with 2 same beds but has different wallpaper colors.
11. What is the difference between horizontal and vertical lines? Horizontal leads the eye left to right and vertical line leads the eye up.
12. What is the golden mean? 3 to 5 ratio.
13. What is the difference between shape and form? Shape is flat or silhoutte image and form is the outline edges of three dimensional object.
14. What are the five types of balance? Asymmetrical balance(informal balance), vertical balance, horizontal balance, radial balance, and formal balance.
15. What does unity or harmony mean? All elements and principles of design work together to create harmony.
16. What are the two things texture involves? Involves how the surface feels to the touch and how it appears to feel.
17. What are the four types of line? Vertical, horizontal, diagonal and curved lines.
18. What is proportion? Each of the parts are the right size to belong to the whole.
19. Which of the five types of balance suggests excitement or interest? Diagonal lines.
20. What is symmetrical balance? Example? When both parts are identical. Example is human.
21. What is emphasis? What is another name for it? One object or item stands out. Another name is Focal point.
22. What happens when you use a continuous line? The eye follows it.
23. What is another name for symmetrical balance? Formal balance.
24. What is another name for asymmetrical balance? Informal balance.
25. What is the difference between gradation and radiation? Gradation designs increase or decrease in size and radiation designs or line move out from center point.
