ELEMENTS OF DESIGN
Straight Horizontal Straight Vertical Curved Flowing Curved Tightly
A constructive line, either drawn or imagined, that passes through the point of sight. Creates a feeling of solidity and provides strength. The East Carolina bridge is a perfect straight horizontal line. It is sturdy and gives a repose feeling. When one drives under a bridge, most get a calming and relaxing feeling. Whether one is driving over or under them, there is a peaceful mood.
A line in the upright position. They appear to extend upwards beyond human reach, towards the sky. They often dominate public buildings, from churches to corporate headquarters. The tall columns on East Carolinaâ€™s campus add height and strength to the campus. Walking through these pillars also gives one the feeling of dignity and importance. They also add emphasizes is put on the library drawing students to it.
A line that deviates from straightness in a smooth manner. Adds gracefulness and delicateness. These stairs provide a calm movement throughout the area. One gets a calm sense.
Usually associated confusion. Like the mayhem of lines. In this tight curved line a is crowd formed. The chaos of the football stadium is somewhat tamed by this tight curve.

Surface Quality Real (Tactile Textured) Implied Texture Non Reflective Reflective
SURFACE QUALITY REAL (TACTILE TEXTURED)
Physical texture is how the texture feels when one touches it; rough or smooth. The physical texture of this brick wall is rough and coarse. Some stick out more than others and that creates a jagged edge.
Implied texture looks like something it is not. The surface is suppose to look like rough marble but it exactly is a smooth surface. The marble-like surface on the shelf creates variety and interest in the bathroom
A texture that does not reflect light. This sidewalk is concert and does not reflect any light. It seems dull, bland, and rough.
A texture that reflects light. The sinks appear to shine and be brighter. The glare and reďŹ‚ection emphasizes the surface.

Lights along a narrow, wall or ceiling mounted rod. Usually in an area that needs to be well lit. These ECU track lightâ€™s repetition of the pirate logo is not overwhelming as opposed to if were repeated on one lamp shade. It as order and structure.
Light goes up inside the ceiling rather than hanging down below it. Gives more height and space to the ceiling. The light is directed on the object it is above.
NATURAL Known as skylight. The sun is the source of light and it saves energy. The window is curvy creating variation in the amount of sun that gets through. The light in the food area is bright. Create a light and elegant feeling.
Lights that are another color other than white. These colored lights creates a playful and joyful environment. Its fun and exciting. The different colors also add variety to a space.
A lamp shade is turn upright so the light shines up. The purple light is a great night light. It doesnâ€™t give off as much light and the light is directed up and not down on someone trying to sleep.

Monochromatic Analogous Direct Complementary Triad Complementary Double Complementary Tetrad Complementary Split Complementary Alternative Complementary Neutral Palette
Color scheme that uses only one hue but different ranges of values of the color. The use of monochromatic on this building creates unity and togetherness. The colors flow. The soft shades used is inviting and noticeable.
Color scheme made from any segment of color adjacent to each other. Green and yellow are beside each other on the color wheel. Create variety while also uniting the colors.

Colors that are directly across from each other on the color wheel. The colors purple and yellow on the ECU flag are appealing and pleasing. They seem to belong together.
Three-color contrasting scheme. Purple, yellow, and orange all contrast each other on the color wheel. It is different from the usual purple and yellow combination, creating variation. The colors go well together.

Created by combining earthy tones. The color scheme in the flooring does not over take the hallway. Gives it a homey feeling.
PRINCEPLES OF DESIGN
Positive Space Negative Space Crowding Territoriality
The space that an object fills. The ECU logo occupies space the middle of the street. Making the space more appealing and interesting.
The space around an object. The space around the trees and building is the grass and sky. There is more negative space is than there is positive.
A crowded, overwhelmed space. The ECU stands were filled with people. Creates commotion and chaos.
Abstract Geometric Natural/Organic Dynamic
Shapes create something other than the shape itself. This painting has many shapes that form one interesting and appealing painting.
Shapes are used to create something pleasing while keeping the shape. The circles and squares are visible but they also create a new object.
Natural shapes form one natural shape. Two triangles make a square or rectangular shape. That is demonstrated in this photo. It is logical and natural.
Space that appear to be moving. The curved ceiling appears to be moving. Movement create liveliness and positive energy.
Geometric Natural Abstract
The spaces form into a bigger shape. The square windows form a 3D pentagon. Creative and different. The building will get noticed because the shape attracts the eye.
The shapes form something that looks natural. Triangles, rectangles, and squares are used to form a human like object. Its interesting and noticeable.
Shapes used to create an entirely different design. The triangles in the nails creates amazing designs. Its pretty and pleasing to the eye.
Visual Symmetry Structural Symmetry Visual Asymmetry Visual Radial Symmetry Structural Radial Symmetry
Object appears to be symmetrical. The object seems to be the same on both sides, but one side is longer than the other. Creates sense of balance and harmony.
Everything is the same on each side. The circle is the same on each side. Balance the size of the circle. Demonstrates organization.
Almost symmetrical. The building is the same except for the furthest left column. Seems to still go together and flow.
VISUAL RADIAL SYMMETRY
Objects seem to come outward from a point. There are lines that appear to come out from the circle.
STRUCTURAL RADIAL SYMMETRY
Lines or objects come out from a point. The pillars sprout out from the top circle of the cupola.
Unity through Line Unity through Shape Unity through Color Unity through Repetition Variety through Color Variety through Materials Variety through Furniture
UNITY THROUGH LINE
The line keep the building flowing.

UNITY THROUGH SHAPE
A shape unites something. The U-shaped openings are united with the U-shaped window and door.
UNITY THROUGH COLOR
Colors unite an object. Purple and yellow compliment each other. Making it pleasing to the eye.
UNITY THROUGH REPETITION
Making something one when things are repeated. There are multiple turkeys but the bulletin board is one. Creating unity.
VARIETY THROUGH COLOR
Various of color . The various of color makes the bow stand out and draws the eye to the purple in the middle of all that yellow.
VARIETY THROUGH MATERIALS
Using different material. The fabric of the dress is enhanced by the plastic necklace. The dress brings out the necklace.
VARIETY THROUGH FURNITURE
Different furniture pieces. Gives a person options and adds diversity to a room.
Focal Point-Visual Focal Point-Structural
What the person sees as a focal point. The fountain is the real focal point in the picture but by just looking at it the people seem to be the focal point.
The focal point it more than likely the middle of an structural. The joker in the middle of the circle is the focal point.
Actual Density Optical Density
All object that looks and physically has density. This car weighs a ton but it appears to be tiny.
Repetitive Climatic Contrast Transitional/Flowing
Repeated many times. The blanket has repeated patterns making astatically appealing.
Repeats vertically, bring the eye up. The glass window repeat up the tower bring the eye up.
Sets a focal point in any space. The yellow in the purple bottle brings the eye to the bottle.
Movement; keeps the eye moving. The stairs move downward making the eye go downward.
Object in Proportion with Space Objects NOT in Proportion with Space
OBJECT IN PROPORTION WITH SPACE
The trees fill the space but do not overpower it.
OBJECTS NOT IN PROPORTION WITH SPACE
The ECU cow is too big for that small amount of dirt.
Human Scale Symbolic Scale
The scale of an average human. Peedee the Pirate is larger than the average human.
Representation of Peedee the Pirate.
