Please keep in mind that these are not the final product, and that I do need to clean them up on my computer, but you'll get the basic concept of the design. The outline of this design was to find 4 photographs that represented 1 of 7 different gestalt design principles and then use circles to represent that principle in an abstract manner based off of the photograph. Things to avoid were making the abstract design actually look like the photo itself, and having the design itself not fit the principle that it was meant to show. Now the design itself didn't have to follow the picture exactly either, just be based off it and if you looked at it and then design you could tell that the idea came from it, so angles may differ ect.
First is closure : This principle is pretty much a statement that we can finish off a picture in our mind even if we cannot see all of the information.
Here's the photo I chose :
Here are the resulting top 3 designs to come from that photo :
This next one is a concept called continuance : Basically all this is that there is a continuance line or curve or something that leads you around a page or design.
The photo :
and the resulting designs :
Next is equilibrium : This one is our drive to make things feel balanced and for this case in particular symmetrical.
The last concept I went with was similarity : This is basically just saying that when we look at something with similar objects we group them together.
The issue I'm having is that I either like them all or I like 2 the same so I'm having trouble choosing which one is the best design and what should be the final project for my portfolio. Any help, suggestions, opinions would be greatly appreaciated. Oh and it's not just one design, but one design from each concept.
