Description
Course: Visual Communication 1

This was an introductory course in visual communication taught by me as a Graduate Teaching Instructor for one section of the sophmore class. it is designed by Professor Karen Hayes Thumann who taught this same course for second section of the class. It explores the importance design plays in shaping meaning and interpretation through basic visual interaction.

Project: Line Interval Studies

Goal: Explore line as a visual element. They had to use 5 vertical and parallel black lines. The first and last line had to be black.
  • Project 1: Line Interval Studies

    Goal: Explore line as a visual element. The main objective of this project was to develop an awareness of   visual elements as language, as sensitivity to the basic principles in design, hand skills and confidence in problem solving.
    They had to use 5 vertical and parallel black lines. The first and last line had to be black.
  • 1a. All 5 lines are optically equal in weight (black lines and white spaces). No implied visual movement.

  • 1b. All 5 black lines are equal in weight  and all white lines are equal but but black is dominant color. No implied visual movement.

  • 1c. All 5 black lines are equal in weight and all white lines are equal but but white is dominant color. No implied visual movement.

  • 2. Black lines are equal in weight but the whte spaces increase in weight from left to right (Line weights cannot be repeated at all).

  • 3. White lines are equal in weight but the black spaces increase in weight from left to right (Line weights cannot be repeated at all).

    * Work of Kimberly Fuller
  • 4. Black lines decrease in weight as the white lines (spaces) increase in size from left to right (Line weights cannot be repeated at all).

    * Work of Kimberly Fuller
  • 5. Black lines increase in weight as the white lines (spaces) decrease in size from left to right (Line weights cannot be repeated at all).

  • 6. Random line study using 5 black lines- do not use a progression or line interval.
