Picture #1.- Importance of colors and shapes.
In this picture we can observe that the silver color is the dominant feature not only because of its color but because we can tell that it has a different texture and it is the biggest shape. Then the orange color would be the subdominant feature followed by the blue. This hierarchy determines the flow of the picture.
PICTURE #2.- Importance of colors and shapes.
In this picture we have a very similar situation as in the first picture. Even if the silver shape isn’t the biggest shape, because of its color and texture it is the most dominant. But its followed by the yellow shapes because of its repetition and dominance of space in the picture.
PICTURE #3.- Symmetry
This picture is symmetrical, this has a couple of effects on the audience. First of all it creates a sense of calmness and stability but also it gives certain power to the object presented in the middle.
PICTURE #4.- Asymmetry
In this picture we have the opposite of the symmetrical picture posted before. Asymmetry gives a sense of movement to the picture. So here we can notice some change between the different angles of the picture. Asymmetry is characterized by disorder which is clearly present in this picture, due to the fact that none of the shapes follow a certain pattern.
PICTURE #5.- Rhythm
It is very important to manage the repetition of certain elements when designing something. In this picture we can observe a repetition in the orange stripes, which gives a certain flow to the picture. This is a monotonous repetition because the same element is the one that is being used many times.
PICTURE #6.- Alignment
In this image we can observe alignment between the objects. First of all the pair of pens and pair of scissors are aligned in order to be in a certain way symmetrical to each other. But then the 3 different type of objects are aligned in order to create a certain order in the image.
PICTURE #7.- MovementIn order to create movement in an image there cannot be symmetry at all. In this case we can observe movement due to what was mentioned before. But also the curved shape that was created gives a sense of movement to the picture.
PICTURE #8.- Closure
This picture has a closure visual effect because the brain is filling up the space that was left behind and creates an image that wasn’t necessarily presented. This type of closure changes the composition of the image and implies certain things that aren’t seen directly.
