Design: The creation and organization of formal elements in a work of Art. Device the form and structure of a building or other construction
ELEMENTS: The elements of design are the raw materials or building blocks for any form of visual expression. at our work in terms of each individual element
There are various types of elements of Design (I consider the list here covers all possible options
in the most economical way):
1. Point , 2. Line, 2. Line, 3. Plane ,4. Mass/ Volume , 5. Form/ Shape, 6.Texture
7. Colour, 8. Space: positive and negative, 9. Value
Point–It is an element that has position, but no extension. As the prime element in the vocabulary of form serve to mark: -
Line : Line is an element characterized by length and direction. the two ends of a line. - the intersection of two lines
Plane: A plane can be thought of as a line in motion and of having 2 dimensions length and width
Shape:- shape is a flat, enclosed area of an artwork created through lines, textures, colors or an area enclosed by other shapes such as triangles, circles, and squares. ..
Form:- Form is very similar to the element of design shape. The difference is that the term is form is used in art work that has three dimensions instead of two as shapes. The three dimensions are length, width and depth
Volume:- Volume is a three-dimensional form comprising length, width, and depth. Three-dimensional forms contain points (vertices), lines (edges), and planes (surfaces)
Texture:- Texture refers to the surface quality in a work of art. We associate textures with the way that things look or feel. Everything has some type of texture. We describe things as being rough, smooth, silky, shiny, fuzzy and so on..
Space:- It refers to the distances or areas around, between, and within components of a piece. Space can be positive or negative, open or closed, shallow or deep, and two-dimensional or three-dimensional
Color is an element consisting of hues there are three properties: hue, chroma or intensity, and value Color is present when light strikes an object and it is reflected back into the eye, a reaction to a hue arising in the optic nerve.
Value: - Value deals with the lightness or darkness of a color.
