Elements and principles of design

What are the elements of design? Texture, shape, form, line, space, and color
What are the principles of design? Balance, rhythm, proportion/scale, emphasis, and unity.
What is the principle repetition? Design is copied or repeated.
How does texture affect color? Smooth surfaces reflect more light than rough surfaces and rough surfaces absorb more light.
What do curved lines suggest? A soft, graceful effect to designs.
What is the difference between horizontal, vertical, and radial balance. Vertical balance is when the top and bottom parts are equal. Horizontal is when the left and right parts are equal. Radial is when elements radiate out from design.
What do diagonal lines suggest? Action, movement, and excitement.
What is space? The area provided for a particular purpose.
What are the 4 types of rhythm? Lines, patterns, shapes, and colors.
What is asymmetrical balance? Example. Parts of the design are not identical but are equal in visual weight. For example, 1 big picture equals 2 medium pictures.
What is the difference between horizontal and vertical lines? Horizontal lines go from left to right and vertical lines go up and down.
What is the golden mean? A way to calculate proportion.
What is the difference between shape and form? Shape is 2D and form is 3D.
What are the 5 types of balance? Symmetrical, asymmetrical, horizontal, vertical, and radial.
What does unity or harmony mean? All elements and principles work together to create harmony.
What are the 2 things that texture involves? How to surface feels and how it appears to feel.
What are the 4 types of lines? Horizontal, vertical, curved, and diagonal.
What is proportion? How the design is visually divided.
Which of the 5 elements suggests excitement or interest? Diagonal lines.
What is symmetrical balance? Example. When both parts are identical. Plants
What is emphasis? What is another name for it? One object or item that stands out. Another name is the focal point.
What happens when you use a continuous line? Design creates a line for the eye to follow.
What is another name for symmetric balance? Formal balance.
What is another name for asymmetrical balance? Informal balance.
What is the difference between gradation and radiation? Gradation is when the designs increase or decrease in size and one element of design changes. Radiation is when lines or designs move out from center point.
