Design Elements - ShapeA shape is defined as an area that stands out from the space next to or around it due to a defined or implied boundary, or because of differences of value, color, or texture.
A shape is formed when a line encloses an area.
Shapes can vary endlessly and can suggest physical form and direct eye movement.
Simple shapes are remembered and understood more easily than complex
Without looking back at the previous screen,
see if you can draw each of the shapes on a piece of paper. Give yourself a
few minutes, then scroll down to see the shapes again and check
how you did.
Shapes define figure/ground relationships.
Shapes serve many purposes in visual images. Value, texture, and color help us see different shapes. Next is value.
