«This task will allow you to test your idea sketching skills. It is important to start working with basic ideas on paper and develop your concept from there on out.
- On an A4 landscape page, draw four equal squares. Create four more pages in this way. So, you’ll have five pages with four squares on each.
- Draw one or two squares or rectangles in each empty square to achieve the visual effects that you see on the first page of Module 3 in your Graphic Design School textbook. You can work with the interaction of rectangles and squares to make the balance or imbalance more evident.
- Entering left
- Movement to the right
- Movement to the left
- Movement downwards
- Movement upwards
Produce at least two different versions of each effect, recording your results each time. Explain in one or two sentences what you wanted to achieve (as shown in your manual).«
Entering left: I positioned the squares close to thenedge to make it look like they come in from the left.
Movement to the right: I positioned the squares tilted and to the right to make them appear moving in that direction.
Movement to the left: I positioned the squares in the left corner, one single box and two going together.
Movement downwards: I put the squares down on the page to make them appear moving downwards.
Movement upwards: I positioned the squares on top of the page, tried with both one and two squares.
Balance: In box one I put two similar squares right next to each other on both sides to get balance, in the other box I put it in the middle alone.
Tension: I tried to create tension by tilting the squares different ways to get a off-putting look.
Symmetry: I created symmetry by adding four similar squares in a symmetrical shape, in the other box I created symmetry by putting two squares tilted the same way next to each other.
Asymmetry: I made the squares asymmetric by putting the boxes in different heights and tilting them different ways.
