Good design is based upon a solid understanding of form and function. It's true that some great artists seem to have been born with an inherent sense of these concepts. However, most designers need to digest these "truths", practice them and absorb them in order to integrate them with their workflow and make them second nature!
This course introduces you to a myriad of visual design concepts like: Movement, Rhythm, Asymmetrical Balance, Unity, Space and many, many more. Then – with Mark's wonderful presentation skills – you see all of these powerful, time-proven concepts demystified and visually demonstrated.
Watching this course will fill you will ideas, excite you about the possibilities and inspire you to incorporate these principles and elements into all of your future designs projects.
