My Design Blitz

For this design blitz, I took some pictures around my home of objects that exemplified 4 concepts of design. The 4 design concepts were Balance, Rhythm, Proportion, and Unity.

This picture represents Dominance. Dominance allows for depth and weight into your photo. The larger jar is more significant in this picture than the smaller one. If the jars were separate, then there is not real reference to the visual weight of either jar, it is not until they are together that you can see the contrasts. This is similar to how diagrams show the size of the Earth relative to the Sun, which makes the Earth suddenly appear very tiny.

This picture represent Balance by taking a picture of this symmetrical bench. This allowed to create a visual balance throughout the photo since all of the visual weight is evenly distributed.

This photo represents Unity, these ones are usually my favorite. When looking at this photo, your mind naturally wants to close the gap between the tan cushion behind the orange one. Though let me ask you this, is the tan cushion one long cushion or is it two small tan cushions put together? It is not obvious from looking at the picture, which is why I like design like this since it makes you a little curious as to what you are looking at.

This photo here is supposed to represent Rhythm with a flowing pattern. To me the swirl of the icing on the cup cake gave me a sense of spiral motion, though I guess others could interpret it differently. This photo shows a nice flowing pattern on the icing and to me it is a very pleasant one (it also helps that the cup cake was very delicious).



This photo also represent Rhythm though this time is is with a regular pattern. Photos like this can be very intriguing as well such as the one I took. I think it helps to zoom in close on the subject since it make the regular pattern pop some more. This one creates a sense of texture when looking at it and, similar to the symmetrical design, a balanced visual weight.
