brief 1 research

I don’t come from a design background so I decided to look at some of the most effective designs for inspiration. The following are few things I learnt.

1. Avoid cluttering the entire space, there is something to be said for empty or minimal space around your main image.I can see this effectively utilized in George Lois’s designs.

2. Using analogous colors or just a variation of tint and shade of a color are very effective in creating a harmonious design. It’s something Kinfolk magazine do very effectively.

3. The importance of utilizing familiar ‘everyday’ objects to create a subversive message, as excellently executed by Kyle Bean, who molds modest household items into domestic horror.
