Design Principles and Elements Basic Training
I created a KB that goes over the basic principles and elements of design to help build up more of the foundational skills of our designers. As an art major, we have a whole semester class just dedicated to this topic but our designers come from a wide variety of backgrounds with different strengths. This can help as a jumping-off point in terms of how we think about composition when designing as well as help build the vocabulary for talking about the parts and relationships of elements in each other’s work. I tried to keep it very simple and basic, where the real test of understanding comes in is at the end where they create a presentation discussing and identifying each of the elements and principles in out-sourced works of art.
