Elements of design is the form in order of their growth from :
Point to one dimensional Line, from Line to two dimensional Plane, from Plane to three dimensional Form or Volume.
Point can serve to mark:
- The two ends of a line.
- The intersection of two lines.
- The meeting of lines at the corner of a plane or volume.
- The center of a field.
- A point extended becomes a Line.
- Has only length dimension, but no width or depth.
- A line, in describing the path of a point in motion.
- Visually expressing direction, movement, and growth.
Line can serve to:
- Join, link, support, surround or intersect other visual elements.
- Define boundary and give shape to the plane.
- Articulate the surfaces of planes.
- Create perspective and depth and suggest movement.
- It must have some degree of thickness to become visible.
- It must have a degree of continuity.
Types of Line:
- Indicates: Dignity, Strength, Stability
- Indicates: Calm, Peace, Relax
- Indicates: Softness, Sooting, Freedom
- A line extended in a direction other than its intrinsic direction becomes plane.
- A plane has length and width, but no depth.
A Plane serves to make:
- Shape is the primary identifying characteristic of a plane.It is determined by the contour of the line forming the edges of a plane.
- The supplementary properties of a plane, its surface color, pattern, and texture affect its visual weight and stability.
- A plane serves to define the limits or boundaries of volume.
- Overhead Plane
- Wall Plane
- Base Plane
Examples of Plane:
- A plane extended in a direction other than its intrinsic direction becomes a volume.
- A volume has three dimensions: length, width, and depth.
- Points or vertices where several planes come together.
- Lines or edges where two planes meet.
- Planes or surfaces that define the limits or boundaries of a volume.
Examples of Plane:
