9780133930139: Design Fundamentals: Notes on Visual Elements and Principles of Composition

How does a dot turn into a line to create a shape that makes up a composition?

What?! Missed your design fundamentals class again? Looks like you’ll need to borrow our notes.

Design Fundamentals: Notes on Visual Elements and Principles of Composition looks and functions like a student’s sketchbook with handwritten notes and illustrations that capture the key concepts and assignments taught in a foundation course on the elements and principles of design. More than just a collection of gorgeously illustrated notes, this “notebook” is an essential guide to the basic elements of composition–dot, line, shape, form, color, texture, and pattern–as well as the principles for composing the elements on flat surfaces (paper, canvas, screens) and in three dimensions.

Fun and fast-paced, this creative notebook isn’t required reading, it’s desired reading; and it’s the second in a series of Design Fundamentals books that students will want to keep and enjoy long after they’ve mastered these basic building blocks of design.
This book includes:

  • (Core instruction on the foundational elements of visual design and the principles of composition including hierarchy, unity, balance, and rhythm
  • Exercises and projects for practice and concept development
  • (Strange and delightful illustrations created specifically for this book (to inspire action)
  • A companion website stocked with additional projects, a bibliography, glossary, and links to additional visual examples.

Product Description:

Miss Visual Elements and Principles of Composition class, again? That’s OK. You can borrow our notes.


Lucky for you, we didn’t miss a single class the entire semester so you’ll find all of the important points explained in the notes, along with the class assignments.


How does a dot turn into a line to create a shape that makes up a composition? We covered that and more. You’ll see in the notes that we went over all of the basic elements of composition—dot, line, shape, texture, & pattern, color, and space—as well as the principles for composing the elements on flat surfaces (paper, canvas, screens) and in three dimensions. 


We had some pop quizzes in this class so we put those in the notes too so you can test yourself, even if it won’t count toward your actual grade.


If anything doesn’t make sense in the notes, just go to the class website at design-fundamentals.com. The instructor put extra projects and exercises on the site, a bunch of cool links, recommended reading, that sort of thing. Also, check out  our Pinterest boards at Pinterest.com/DSNFundamentals. You could spend hours looking through it all.


Good luck!
