Repeat Patterns

 

Our lessons on Repeat Patterns demonstrate an essential design skill. Today, repeat patterns are seen almost everywhere but they also reach back through the history of design and across all continents and cultures. They are used in tiling, wallpaper, textiles, wrapping and packaging, backdrops for text or illustrations in graphic media, jewellery and architectural details.

Graphic Design Lessons - The 3 Cs of Graphic Design

 

Graphic Ideas have layers of visual and verbal meaning that communicate a concept. The best ideas are those that you discover by trial and error through composing the components of your design to form a concept. This process is known as the 3 Cs of Design.

Our Composition Techniques teach you how to create ideas in graphic design. They explore the graphic qualities of imagery, typography and layout and demonstrate how to develop these into visual solutions that communicate a message or concept to a target audience.

Design a Logotype

 

Typography is the art of designing and arranging printed type. It started as a craft in the 15th century with the invention of the printing press and has gradually evolved into an art form in its own right with modern digital technologies offering unprecedented creative possibilities.

A Logo is a sign, symbol, trademark or badge that conveys the identity or ownership of a product, company, campaign or concept in as memorable a way as possible. Logos have been around in one form or another for several thousand years.

A Logotype is simply a logo, symbol, trademark or brand identity that is primarily composed from typography. The aim of this lesson is to create a logotype whose style reflects some aspect of a museum or its collection.

Isometric Drawing

 

Isometric Drawing is a technique, like perspective drawing, that is used by artists and designers to represent three-dimensional forms on a two-dimensional picture plane. In this lesson we demonstrate how to use an isometric cube as the building block of an isometric design.

Our lesson on Isometric Poster Design uses isometric images and lettering to design a poster that communicates the concept of isometric drawing. We developed the images for our poster design lesson in our previous lesson on isometric drawing.
