  • Donna Dawson United Kingdom Course Module: Applying design principles
    Course Topic: The application of design principles and elements: example 2
    Comment: Example 2 In this example we see strong use of colour, shape, tone, point and texture. The colour has been reduced to tonal shades of blue with some contrasting red areas to control the hierarchies, (where you look first, second and thirdly). The focal point is the centre of Bono's sunglasses showing refracted rays of reflection. These radiating (one point perspective) lines draw your eye continually back to that point. The second hierarchy, the man third from the left has a face made up from dark tones created with point to contrast to the lead singer Bono's face. Point is used to create a rough surface texture throughout this composition. The photograph in the image has been fragmented and repeated to create a series of lines and shapes that lead your eye across the page to the left, to the focal point. 2012-11-16 18:11:54
