Design Basics



Design:A Creative Approach by Emerson, Sybil. It’s a really great old book (1953). 125 pages of “experiments” and summaries of graphic design elements. Here are the experiments I completed. Experiments exploring: line, line and texture, lots of texture with some repetition, volume, color, pattern and lastly grouping. Some of the exercises are fairly simple and quick to do. A pleasant reminder to all designers that design doesn’t have to be complicated and computer generated.
