What is the role of elements & principles in graphic design?

In other words, say it, the role of elements and principles is how you put the elements together to create a visual representation to convey your message. ( As for an example: My design element is color so I created a representation of color to show the difference to my viewers and to convey the message inside it.

What is this design task all about?

In this unit, we each had an element that we would create based on it. Different elements could illustrate differently and could have different results. Like for people that used shapes, they might have used different and interesting shapes to fascinate or to make it appealing. The designs might also have different meanings that have connections to the creators themselves.

Why did you design your illustration this way?

I did my design adding different shapes and different color scenes to show how my feelings are for this year. I also used some ideas I doodled in the class:

The ones that I’ve circled are the ones that inspired me and the ones I put in my design. Like the Movement&Direction one, I used white/grayish color and added it at the top of my design. Same for the balance one, but I chose to make it into different shapes this time.

And finally, the colors I chose to be in this design, is because I feel happy about a school not feeling stressed totally. The design might have some of my own feelings and different meanings.

My design progress:

  1. Choose the colors
  2. Background making
  3. Adding the shapes ( Inspiration form Movement&Direction)
  4. Finishing off the shapes with putting different faces on them to show the different feelings of myself this schoolyear.
  5. End

What is Graphic design?

Basically it’s another type of art for me, putting into a lot of categories, graphic design has a lot you can explore. For example in your everyday life, you can see a lot of things based on it.

What’s my most memorable experience designing?

Designing out my own character.

I hope I can get better at my drawing skills and my basic drawing techniques.

For this work, I tried to put in elements of my note-taking things; Like my everyday school life. I put in doodling as if I’m drawing on my notebook. I also put in a cat. My favorite animal also. I chose to do this type of style is also because I think that this relates to me.
On the other hand, for my goal setting, I think it would be better if I focused more on drawing techniques and design layouts to make my work more interesting.
