2D Design Project The Final!


Here it is ladies, gents and anyone else, the end of the line. conflicting color was used to make the piece seem erratic (the green and orange), and lines also helped this, with their zig-zag shape. The entire picture plane was used according to guidlines, and negative shapes are relatively simple parallelograms. The piece is very asymmetrical, nothing is centered straight in the middle or mirrored. A lot of the elements lead the eye into the spiral in the top right, everything bends toward it and also are all pointed at it. The spiral is the primary focal point, as it is placed in an important spot according to the Rule of Thirds and has the most visual conflict, with the very bright white dots on top of the generally dark green color. The colors are considerably cool, and the only complimentary colors used are blue and orange.

The emotion that was meant to be conveyed was nervousness. I tried to express this with the general green and blue palette, zig-zag shaped lines and heavy use of the repetition of shapes and lines. I do believe this piece has used the principles of organization at least once, but probably missing better use of complimentary colors (more orange). I did botch up the tape removal, making the paper a bit scratchy on some parts, and I do believe I can add more to make the entire piece feel more “nervous” (add more squiggly lines).
