Terms – Color Grid 18′

Terms:

Value – 1. The relative lightness or darkness of color in a picture. 2. That aspect of color by which a sample appears to reflect more or less of the incident color. 3. Lightness or darkness; the amount of white or black.

Saturation – refers to the dominance of hue in the color.

Collage – An artistic composition of materials and objects pasted over a surface, often with unifying lines and color.

Dominance – Preeminence in position or prevalence; ascendancy. 2. The tendency for one element or group to command greater attention than another

Simultaneous contrast – Two colors, side by side, interact with one another and change our perception accordingly. Simultaneous contrast is most intense when the two colors are complementary colors.

Complimentary color – On a standard color wheel they are the colors opposite each other (red/green, yellow/blue). They look good together and compliment each other.

cool vs. warm – Warm colors are based on yellows, oranges, browns, yellowish greens, orangish reds, and the like. Cool colors are based on blues, greens, pinks, purples, blue-greens, magentas, and blue-based reds.

Monochromatic – a color scheme based on variations in a single hue. For example, a light, pastel blue, a medium navy blue and a dark blue-blue may be used in a room interior.

Analogous color – a color scheme based on hues that are adjacent on a color wheel, such as red, red-orange, and orange.

Project Overview

Using the guidelines below visually define the list of terms on the above posting.  Use your sketch book to work out ideas and organize your presentation. We will critique sketches.

Guidelines

-Only use black ink on white background

-Visually define each term in one small box of 3 inches by 3 inches

-You may not use the same design concept to define more than one term

-No illustrative or realistic/representational imagery

-Use only basic geometric graphic elements like lines, circles, squares, rectangles, triangles, and dots

-Practice excellent craftsmanship (sharp corners, crisp edges, etc.)

-four sketches per term

 

Terms:

Scale | Contrast | Hierarchy | Balance  | Symmetry | Asymmetry | Orientation | Pattern | Progression | Rhythm | Weight | Proximity | Density | Tension

 

Example: Contrast

Some of these examples could work for other terms. Use the best concept for each term in your project.
