Day 261 – The Yellow Line

A piece about design from my college research journal:

There are many definitions relating to design and many different meanings relating to each one. Some would say they are designing websites, others buildings, more have designs on becoming a rock star and design strategies in their life to make it happen. I believe that design, by definition, is very simple, it is creation. Design is anything we have to conceive in our minds and take steps to bring into being.


In the context of photography, design has more specific elements and principles:

Elements:                                                            Principles:

-Line                                                                        -Balance: Symmetrical

-Shape                                                                       -Balance: Asymmetrical

-Form                                                                        -Unity

-Texture                                                                    -Emphasis

-Space: Perspective                                                -Contrast

-Colour                                                                     -Pattern

-Value                                                                       -Movement and Rhythm


Quote of the day: “A common mistake that people make when trying to design something completely foolproof is to underestimate the ingenuity of complete fools.” – Douglas Adams
