Elements of Graphic Design and Pondering their Relevance to Other Fields.



A blog post by Dorothy Leung suggests that graphic design and architecture are not so different in the aesthetics and atmosphere in relation to they  organize elements. She, inspired by an article by Nancy Bernard , compares the two fields in the chart posted above. Rightfully Leung comes to the conclusion that there are some elements of design that transcends many fields. After all things like colour theory is colour theory regardless if its is in regards to fashion, interior design, or painting.

Nancy Bernard’s article Without Contrast You’re Dead in a 2000 issue of Critique should be read by all artists and designers dealing with visual media. Design and art has certain rules that should be understood. They can be broken, but only after they are fully understood can they be broken with proper intent and therefore proper effect.
