The name of this assignment reminded me the exposition at the SCAD Museum “Little Black Dress”. Just saying…
for this exploration assignment we had to represent six words just with flat black squares. Here are my designs:
Representing this word was a little bit difficult because depending on the position of the squares it could be any of the other words. I believe this design is very simple and shows the meaning of the word ‘order’ because they are organized in two different lanes: big squares and small squares. This organization would create a pattern, which means ‘order’.
I believe this word was the easiest one. I draw one lane of squares which goes from big to small. By changing the size of the squares, I represented the word ‘increase’.
With this word I had to break the rules of just a ‘flat black square’. What I did in this design was change the thickness of the borders of the squares; the more thickness they have, the more bold they would look like.
This is my favorite one. I placed a lot of squares, of different sizes, in just one spot while they are overlapping each other so it seems that it is overcrowded. There is an illusion of a thin white border around each square that is helping to demonstrate the word ‘congested’.
Those are my designs for the exploration assignment #2. I am missing the word ‘PLAYFUL’, but i would upload it later on.
