BASIC MULTIMEDIA DESIGN PRINCIPLES

http://eLearning.utm.my

OVERVIEW

The principles of design are applicable to all design disciplines including - but not exclusive to architecture, art, graphics, multimedia application, web design, fashion, industrial design and writing.

21 Faculty of Education, UTM

OVERVIEW

Each principle applies to each element and to the composition as a whole. The principles are : Contrast Unity Repetition/Consistency Balance Rhythm or Harmony Emphasis White Space

CONTRAST

Contrast creates interest in the printed or online presentation by providing variety in the design. Provide contrast within each element i.e. light, dark; soft, hard; warm, cool, etc. How can you create contrast in multimedia design?

23 Faculty of Education, UTM

CONTRAST
How can you create contrast? There's lots of ways:

Size Color Value Fonts Emphasis Shape Texture

UNITY

Unity is the underlying principle that summarizes all of the principles and elements of design. It refers to the coherence of the whole, the sense that all of the parts are working together to achieve a common result; a harmony of all the parts. Readers need visual cues to let them know the piece is one unitthe text, headline, photographs, graphic images, and captions all go together. How can you create unity in multimedia/web design?
31 Faculty of Education, UTM

UNITY
How to create unity :
Use

only one or two typestyles and vary size or weight for contrast throughout the publication, presentation, or web site. Be consistent with the type font, sizes, and styles for headings, subheads, captions, headers, footers, etc. throughout the publication, presentation, application or web site. Use the same color palette throughout.

UNITY
How to create unity :
Repeat

a color, shape, or texture in different areas throughout. Choose visuals that share a similar color, theme, or shape. Line up photographs and text with the same grid lines.

UNITY

These four images have nothing in common stylistically. The problem in combining them into single screen is that they are worlds apart in colors, rendering styles, background and more.

UNITY
In this example, the greatest obstacles to stylistic unity were the backgrounds and colors of the original images. This screen shows how the images are integrated and made to work together by: Removing their background. Altering their tones to fit within a particular colour family.

REPETITION/CONSISTENCY

Roger C. Parker in "Ten Rules of Good Design, Part II" writes:


Design

creates unity by using white space, type and colors in a consistent way throughout every document your firm produces, and within every page of a single document, presentation or web site.

So just how do you create consistency in your designs?


Margins

and Page Layout Use the same margins throughout a document, and choose the same underlying grid.

So just how do you create consistency in your designs?


Typeface

Face it, if you're a designer, you've probably got a bazillion typeface or fonts. That doesn't mean that you have to use every font you own in every design. Two typefaces is enough for many jobs; one typeface can lend beauty to documents, too.

REPETITION/CONSISTENCY

So just how do you create consistency in your designs? Navigation When (if) you travel in Europe, do you find yourself confused because the language and signs change from country to country? Visitors to your Website or multimedia application might become confused if navigation graphics are on the left on one page, on the right on another, and at the bottom on another.

REPETITION/CONSISTENCY

So just how do you create consistency in your designs? Color Your viewers/readers will feel more comfortable with your Websites and printed designs if there's a recognizable color scheme. Even in a process color design, there's no reason to use all sixteen million or so colors available to you. Try to keep your design palette limited to two or three colors, and don't forget to use them consistently!

You already know what are principles of design BUT how can you create or use the principles in multimedia courseware or web design?

Choose any 2 principles of design and discuss in your blog. Give appropriate examples to support your discussion.
