Using only black and white 1. Rhythm Use the principles of repetition, alignment, and contrast to create a composition of abstract shapes (circles, rectangles, free form shapes, etc.whatever you choose) that conveys a sense of rhythm. The repeating circles in the example to the left were sized and positioned to create a sense of rhythm and motion. Adding a contrasting color to some of the circles would change the rhythm by making some of the beats more dominant. 2. Unity Use the principles of grouping, repetition, and contrast to create a unified composition of abstract shapes. In the example to the left, the repetition and alignment of the squares unifies the composition, even as the contrast in color and direction creates discrete elements. (The design space is also visually divided to follow the rule of thirds, which results in a sense of balance and proportion.) 3. Balance Use the principles of grouping (proximity, similarity, continuity ), repetition, alignment, and contrast to create a balancedbut not symmetricalcomposition. In the example to the left, size, color, and shape have been used to group items, to give a sense of motion, and to bring balance to the design. The size and position of large circle allow it to balance the strong color of the star. Save each file as a gif or jpg, then combine all three into one Word or pdf file. For each image, include a title (e.g. rhythm) and a brief note that explains your design choices.
