Color Terms

What are the elements of design? The elements are space,line,shape,form,texture,and color
What are the principles of design? They are balance,rythm,proportion/scale,emphasis, and unitity.
What is the principle repetition? Design is copied or repeated.
How does texture affect color? Smooth surfaces reflect more light then rough surfaces when rough surfaces absorb more light.
What do curved lines suggest? These lines add a spft effect to the design and also to many curved lines will make it look to busy.
What is the difference between horizontal, vertical, and radial balance? Vertical balance is when top and bottom parts are equal. Horizontal balance is when left and right parts are equal. Then radical balance is when elements radiate out from design.
What do diagonal lines suggest? These lines suggest action,movement,and excitment.
What is space? Space is the area provided for a particular purpose.
What are the four types of rhythm? They are:gradiation,radiation,repetition,amd continuous line.
What is asymmetrical balance? Example? When parts of the design are not identical but are equal in visual light. An example of this could be lets say theres a table on one side there is a bowl and on the other a flower pot even though they are not the same thing they weigh each other out.
What is the difference between horizontal and vertical lines? Horizontal lines lead the eye left to right and vertical lines lead your eye up and down.
What is the golden mean? It is the 3 to 5 ratio.
What is the difference between shape and form? Shape is 2 demensions when form is 3 demensions.
What are the five types of balance? Vertical balance,horizontal balance,radial balance,symmetrical balance,and asymmetrical balance.
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 and also a surfaces tactile quality.
What are the four types of line? Four types are:vertical,horizontal,diagonal,and curved.
What is proportion? How the disign is visually divided.
Which of the five types of balance suggests excitement or interest? I believe symmetrical balance does.
What is symmetrical balance? Example? When both parts are identical. One example is plants.
What is emphasis? What is another name for it? Is when one object or item stands out. Another name for this is the focal point.
What happens when you use a continuous line? This design creates a continuous line for the eye to follow.
What is another name for symmetrical balance? Also named formal.
What is another name for asymmetrical balance? Another name is informal.
What is the difference between gradation and radiation? Radiation is when lines or disigns move out from the center point. Then gradation is when designs increase or decrease in size and one element of the design changes.
