The Elements of Design are the components or parts of a work of art or design. More simply put, they are the ingredients of art. Take one part color, a pinch of texture, and a whole lot of shape, and voila: you have art! Recipes may vary, but all works of art and design contain a combination of the following: line, shape, value, color, space, and texture.

Assignment: Create an infographic that serves as a quick reference for the basic elements of design, complete with tips for how and why each should be considered when creating any design.

Assessment:

  • Graphics should be simple, but eye-catching.
  • Text should be interesting, but legible.
  • There should be a clear hierarchy of information.
  • The key concepts should easily communicate.
  • Artistic Elements and Principles should be used to create visual interest.
  • No grammatical errors should be present.
