what are the elements of design? space, line, shape, form, color, texture
what are the principles of design? balance, rhythm, proportion/scale, emphasis, unity
what is the principle repetition? rhythm; design is copied or repeated
how does texture affect color? smooth surfaces reflect more light, rough surfaces absorb more light.
what do curved lines suggest? soft, graceful effect to a design
what is the difference between horizontal, vertical, and radial balance? horizontal- left and right are equal vertical- top and bottom are equal radial- from middle out, everything is equal
what do diagonal lines suggest? action, movement, and excitement
what is space? the area provided for a particular purpose
what are the four types of rhythm? gradation, radiation, repetition, continuous line
what is an asymmetrical balance? Example? parts of the design aren't identical but equal in visual weight. Ex. fridge
what is the difference between horizontal and vertical lines? horizontal- leads eye left to right, room appears wider and shorter vertical- leads eye up, room appears taller
what is the golden mean? 3 to 5 ratio
what is the difference between shape and form? shape is the flat outline, form is the 3-D figure
what are the five types of balance? symmetrical, asymmetrical, vertical, horizontal, radial
what does unity or harmony mean? all elements and principles of design work together to create harmony
what are the two things texture involves? how the surface feels to the touch and how it appears to feel
what are the four types of line? horizontal, vertical, diagonal, curved
what is proportion? how the design is visually divided
which or the five types of balance suggests excitement or interest? radial balance
what is a symmetrical balance? Example? when both parts are identical
what is emphasis? what is another name for it? one object or item stands out; focal point
what happens when you use a continuous line? design creates a continuous line for your eye to follow, makes the room feel bigger
what is another name for symmetrical balance? formal balance
what is another name for asymmetrical balance? informal balance
what is the difference between gradation and radiation? gradation the size of the object changes or one element of design changes; radiation the line/design moves out from the center
