Project 1: First Post

Project 1 consists of several examinations of order through modular grids. Constraints include Symmetry and Asymmetry, followed by several sub-constraints.

Initial Grids

Grid_01_BW

Grid_02_BW

Grid_03_BW

Grid_04_BW

Grid_05_BW

 

Out of five – One from each sub-constraint grids involving symmetry along the horizontal and vertical axis’. Symmetrical Grids w/ Shades (0%, 20%, 40%, 60%, 80%, 100%), Shapes (Circles, Triangles, Squares), Rules of varying weight, Text (Univers, Baskerville, Bodoni, Garamond, Avant Garde). Each image shown is utilizing the above grids as the vehicle for placement of content…
