The 6 elements of DESIGN

Just what are the 6 elements of design?

consideration because they are

→ The first element is the line; the path of a moving point. It
may be a continuous path made by a pencil or any pointed
utensils. There are 6 different types of lines you could
draw: Outlines; lines made by the edge of an object,
contour lines; lines which describe the interior of an object,
gesture lines; lines that are energetic and catch the
movement of active figures, implied lines; lines that are
not entirely drawn but created from different objects from
a distance , calligraphic lines; beautiful writings, and
sketch lines; lines that have the appearance of an object or
impression of a place. These 2 pictures are examples of a
gesture line


→ Color is an objects chromatic. Color comes
from light. Whenever a light-ray hits an object,
our eyes acknowledge only the rays that
reflect back, so we see only the reflected
colors. There are many categories of color;
such as primary colors: which include the likes
of Red, Blue and yellow. Secondary colors
which includes Orange, Violet, and Green. The
intermediate colors such as Red orange,
Yellow green, and Blue violet. And last but not
least the Complementary colors which are
colors opposite each other on the color wheel.
For example: Red and Green, Blue and Orange,
Yellow and purple, etc.

objects such as: leaves, seashells, and
flowers. There are also positive shapes;
which are solid forms of a design such as a
bowl of fruit. And the negative shapes, the
space around the positive shapes for
example the sky or spaces between things.
Shapes are 2-dimensioial, they have height,
weight, and no depth.


→ There are also the types of perspectives, a sub-

→ There also is the Linear perspective, the
methods include: One-point perspective;
a drawing created on 2d planes that uses
ONE POINT in the distance from which
everything in the drawing is set out.
Two-point perspective; is like one point
perspective but with an additional line or
point added and that are 90 degrees

→ Texture, as you know, is the surface
quality of an object. There are two
categories of texture: Real texture and
implied texture. Real texture is the real
feel of an object; an object may feel
just as it appears. Then there's the
things that appears smooth but are
rough, this is called Implied texture.


→ Last but certainly not least is value, an
objects brightness/darkness. The categories of
value are Tint; adding white to a color paint to
create a light blue or pink. Shade; adding black
to create a darker value like dark blue or red.
High-key; a picture with all light values. Low-
key; the opposite of high-key. Value contrast;
light values placed next to dark values to create
a contrast of strong differences. And value scale;
a scale that shows the gradual change in value
from its lightest to darkest values.
