USC, FO102Olivia BoothProject #3: “Composition Using Organizing Principles and Value (and Some Color)”Due date: multi-part assignment, 9/30, 10/2, 10/7Objective:This assignment moves us towards more intentional design decisions. We’ll compose in a strategic fashion (which may seem contrived at first, but then begins to work with intuition), employing a new (or perhaps not) batch of terms and principles. We’ll study achromatic value and see how it plays as a major element in design (along with our building arsenal of point, line, shape, etc). Finally, we’ll analyze one another’s compositions and reinterpret them in color, as an introduction to color.Description: We began byreading up on some general terms and principles that guide 2D compositional arrangement, and demonstrated them with thumbnails in mixed media.Terms and principles:Types of compositions: grid, random,radial,linear,cluster,centralized (to name just a few)Symmetry, AsymmetryUnity- harmony and varietyBalanceDominance or hierarchy...visual weight, emphasis, attention, presence
